Genre: Adult Fiction, Science Fiction, Dystopia
Summary from Goodreads:
The silo has appointed a new sheriff. Her name is Juliette, and she comes not from the shadows of deputies, but from the depths of the down deep.
But what does being a mechanic have to do with upholding the law? And how will she be able to concentrate on the silo’s future when she is surrounded by the ghosts of its past?
Before she can even settle in, the whirring gears of the silo begin to grind anew. Things aren’t right. And the people whose help she most needs are gone.
If Juliette isn’t careful, she’ll soon be among them.
- I have a love/hate relationship with the shortness of the stories in this series. Short stories are easier to read but they’re almost too short.
- The pacing was a bit off for me in this book. The beginning of the book was slow. Of course towards the end everything starts to get more exciting. Once again the story leaves us on a cliffhanger. Bah.
- I’m loving the conspiracies in this book. The main story line is really hitting its stride. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
- I really should read these books closer together. It took me almost half the book to remember what had happened in the previous books. Once I situated myself in the story, I was glued.
The bottom line? This was a much more exciting installment than the last one.
