They live beneath the earth in a prison of their own making. There is a view of the outside world, a spoiled and rotten world, their forefathers left behind. But this view fades over time, ruined by the toxic airs that kill any who brave them.
So they leave it to the criminals, those who break the rules, and who are sent to cleaning. Why do they do it, these people condemned to death? Sheriff Holston has always wondered. Now he is about to find out.
This book will own you! Just buy the omnibus and save yourself a couple bucks, because you will want to read more. I sat down to read this first one, just 60 pages long, and didn’t get up until it was finished. At first the story was hard to follow, as you’re plopped down in the middle of a world and have to play catch up for the majority of the novella. It all comes together very quickly though and I was hard pressed not to cry at the end. This is a great, quick, (and cheap!) Dystopian read. Highly recommended to anyone.
