In a future less than fifty years away, the world is still as we know it. Time continues to tick by. The truth is that it is ticking away.
A powerful few know what lies ahead. They are preparing for it. They are trying to protect us.
They are setting us on a path from which we can never return.
A path that will lead to destruction; a path that will take us below ground.
The history of the silo is about to be written.
Our future is about to begin.
About the Author
Hugh Howey spent eight years living on boats and working as a yacht captain for the rich and famous. It wasn't until the love of his life carried him away from these vagabond ways that he began to pursue literary adventures, rather than literal ones. Hugh wrote and self-published his first adult novel, Wool, which won rave reviews and praise from readers. Shift is its prequel. Hugh lives in Jupiter, Florida, with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.
"Brilliantly written...Howey creates a starkly believable and terrifying apocalypse. More and more layers of the dystopian world are unveiled, enticingly paving the way for the sequel Dust..." Sunday Express "We have been mesmerised with Hugh Howey's silo stories since we first laid eyes on book one in the trilogy ... We'd recommend reading Wool first but you'll want to have this one ready as we guarantee you'll be unable to put it down. Perfect sunshine reading, wouldn't you say?" Grazia Daily "The anxiety, the claustrophobia and the lethargy he conjures are heartfelt and convincing." Observer "Spoken about in the same breath as The Hunger Games and The Passage." Independent on Sunday (praise for the Wool Trilogy) "Thrilling, thought-provoking and memorable ... one of dystopian fiction's masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World." Daily Express (praise for the Wool Trilogy)
