Hugh Howey
Broad Reach Publishing
Science Fiction

The old world is buried. A new one has been forged atop the shifting dunes. Here in this land of howling wind and infernal sand, four siblings find themselves scattered and lost. Their father was a sand diver, one of the elite few who could travel deep beneath the desert floor and bring up the relics and scraps that keep their people alive. But their father is gone. And the world he left behind might be next.

Welcome to the world of Sand, the first new novel from New York Times bestselling author Hugh Howey since his publication of the Silo Saga. Unrelated to those works, which looked at a dystopian world under totalitarian rule, Sand is an exploration of lawlessness. Here is a land ignored. Here is a people left to fend for themselves. Adjust your ker and take a last, deep breath before you enter.


I loved Howey's mind-blowing dystopian best-seller, WOOL. And SAND was just as riveting! How does this man come up with ideas like these???

Vic and her younger brothers are divers. But in a world lacking water, they instead dive into the sand where entire cities lay buried, waiting for looters to bring their long lost treasures to the surface. This world is so realistic, so vivid, I found myself getting completely enveloped in it. Hugh Howey is a master of his genre. His writing is all at once poetic, literary, and yet sharp and intense. If you haven't read WOOL or SAND, you are really missing out on an adventure of a lifetime.

Read my review of WOOL here:


Profanity:  High (Excessive)
