Juliette of Silo 18 succeeds in uncovering the digger she learned about from the silo schematics and having her people dig through to Silo 17 to rescue the people she found there. Things are looking up.
On the other hand, things start to go wrong again in Silo 1 when Senator Thurman comes back, almost literally, from the dead and finds out what has been going on.
In this final installment of the Silo Saga, Silo 18 falls, and the only reason any of its people survive is the connection they have just made to Silo 17. But after a very few days, it becomes obvious that trying to make a real life in Silo 17 with the few people they have left will be next to impossible. Juliet proposes another bold move.
Meanwhile, Donald and Charlotte, having flown a drone far enough outside the area of the silos to see green grass and blue sky, are hard at work on a plan to bring down Silo 1 so that the other silos will have a chance to survive without the meddling people and computers of Silo 1. It’s a race to the finish as to who will survive and who will be destroyed.
An excellent conclusion to an excellent series. It could all so easily have gone wrong...
I just really , really enjoyed the world created by the author in the Silo series. So if you enjoyed the previous books in the series then you should enjoy this last book too. Personally I loved the ending, and without giving anything away it was a satisfying conclusion to a story I truly enjoyed. The journey was over and I felt like it lasted the right amount of time. Any more books and it would have felt too drawn out. As a series this is nice to see. I think there is too much temptation these days to draw out a successful series too long until only the die-hard fans are left - and even they are disappointed.

Along with the others in the Wool series, this is a great conclusion to a good series.
Solo was mine, I liked the overall character development of him, and his story was very compelling.
As they created dust and found their new lives.
The discussion and planning between father and daughter.
Similar to book one. Interesting story with a good pace. To be honest, after completion I was still left with un-answered questions that should have been answered. The ending left me satisfied.
If you've read Wool and Dust, then you might as well read this one and find out what happens. I definitely wouldn't consider this a waste of my time but I don't think I would recommend this trilogy to anyone because the chances of them resenting me for it are just too high. I didn't enjoy the conclusion either. I felt like Howey could have done better than that but it wasn't terrible and I feel satisfied.
MIGHT NOT WANT TO READ THIS PART IF YOU HAVEN'T LISTENED YET
What was up with that cult thing?! Was that really necessary? And did I miss why her scars were healing? Was there a purpose to that?
