Review: Shift series

Author: Hugh Howey

I just finished the third installment, titled Pact, of the Shift series written by Hugh Howey.  This isn't really a continuation of the story from Wool.  The events in this series coincide with the events in Wool.  You get to learn the origins of of the silos, and learn the story behind the men that control everything.  There is a familiar progression in the story of silo 1 that is every bit as enthralling as Wool.  The side story of the character Solo is good at the start, but drags on as the story continues.  It is a necessary evil that helps to tie everything neatly together with the end of Wool.  I can't wait for the next installments set to be titled "Dust".  This is a must read if you have read and enjoyed Wool.  If you haven't read Wool yet then go and get a copy of it now!  Yes it is that good!
