Now after finishing Dust I was tempted to go back and read all three books again but something caught my eye on Amazon's recommendations for me a series called Karma of the Silo - Step in Patrice Fitzgerald!
A whole new story based in Silo 2 and it revolves around Karma and her life in the depths of the decimated world.
We follow Karma from her early life in Silo 2, we meet her as a young woman recently pregnant and working in the Silo laundry. After a visit to the doctor she is advised not to drink the water and warned she may experience hallucinations.
But she does not have hallucinations, she starts remembering - she remembers Donald, she remembers the explosions, she remembers that she does not belong in the silo, she remembers that the sky used to be blue and she remembers that her name is Helen.
She is/was the wife of congressman Donald Keene - remember him from Silo 1? And remember Mick? Donald's friend, well he now goes by the name of Rick and has become Helen's husband.
The story follows Karma/Helen as she raises her daughter Athena and son Mars with Rick who has the ominous job of Head of IT (if you have read Wool you will know what this entails) and of course there is a lot of secrecy that goes with it.Read more ›
Fitzgerald has convinced me my doubt was misplaced. There are gaps in Hugh's story and plenty of unexplored territory.
Her writing is wonderful and sheds light on a thread that was left hanging. The story itself is strong and you won't be disappointed.
On a slightly separate note, most Worlds titles are not available in amazon.co.uk This one is because it came out before Hugh opened up Wool. But as such, it is not completely clear that all the back story is in Hugh's work and it's essential to have read the Wool trilogy first. At least one of the 2 star reviews has made this mistake.
Some of the events appear bizarre at first and some reviews draw attention to this. However, again, they are in keeping with the Wool trilogy and are also explained in those books.
Great character back stories, while remaining true to all of the WOOLiverse. I hugely enjoyed this book. I have read quite a few novels/novellas set in the universe but this is one of the best in writing style and description. I wish the author had maybe wrote more, even a sequel which continues the sage from this Silo.
Beginning with the early days of the Silos, the author does a fantastic job of retaining the atmosphere and claustrophobia of life underground and the characters are carefully constructed, exploring not only the effects of Silo life on the family dynamic, but the often complex relationships between the different Silo classes through the eyes of Karma and her family as she realises who she really is and has to decide whether to remain subdued and forget her past life, or choose a different path than the one chosen for her and challenge the status quo.
It also explores the brutality of human nature as various conflicts arise during Karma's life with all-too-familiar uprisings and power struggles taking place with some resorting to violence, menace and murder to achieve their goals, while also dealing with the tragic consequences of suicide as people become disillusioned with life and the ever-lingering threat of being sent to Clean.
The story is well-paced and rarely falters with plenty of twists and a stirring conclusion and I have to say overall my first foray into fan fiction has been very rewarding indeed. I have to admit I've always been a bit skeptical about the impact and validity of fan fiction, but Patrice Fitzgerald has proven me wrong and for that I'm grateful.

I loved this book, having read the WOOL trilogy I had wondered what had happened to Helen. This book fitted so well with Hugh Howey's that it could not disappoint. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer

wonderful to be back in the depth of the Silo. i really enjoyed the story told from Helens perspective. thank you for writing them.Published on 3 April 2014 by Tally
I gave this rating because I think that there is no story line, it doesn't tell u why they are living in the silo and what happened in the outside world that kills them.Published on 20 Mar. 2014 by Kerry
