Book review

"One of the sharpest minds and clearest voices writing today. I love this story!" Hugh Howey, author of WOOL

This is a novella based on Hugh Howey's WOOL books, and the first of five best-selling ebooks in the Karma series. Read the entire series in Karma of the Silo: The Collection.

Karma lives in a Silo deep beneath the earth. She isn't sure of much else… only that the wallscreen shows an outside view that is barren and swirling with toxic clouds. Most of the other residents seem content. Except for the ones who jump to their deaths from the hundred-level spiral staircase. And the ones who are pushed.

After the doctor prescribes a special medicine and tells her to avoid tap water, Karma begins to remember a very different world. Despite the fog in her mind, she is convinced that something came before. Such memories are dangerous to talk about, or even to think about.

She must figure out who can be trusted. The doctor… her husband… or no one at all.

Praise for Patrice Fitzgerald and the Karma series

The author does a fantastic job of retaining the atmosphere and claustrophobia of life underground and the characters are carefully constructed, exploring not only the effects of Silo life on the family dynamic, but the often complex relationships between the different Silo classes through the eyes of Karma and her family as she realises who she really is and has to decide whether to remain subdued and forget her past life, or choose a different path than the one chosen for her and challenge the status quo.

Eamon Ambrose, "Eamo the Geek"

Fitzgerald has created another masterpiece here. She has such an immediate style of writing which grips you from the start and takes you on a wild journey through the desperate lives of those living in the Silo.

W.J. Davies, author of The Runner and The Diver

I think I’m in love with Karma. I was curious about her life when Hugh Howey mentioned her in SHIFT. I highly recommend, not just this book, but this whole series!

Hanna Elizabeth, author of Visions of Wool

The Sky Used to be Blue manages the difficult feat of placing itself within the existing narrative, just like a missing piece of the great puzzle, and not just a parallel story or spinoff. It is well-written, gripping and filled with suspense. All the ingredients necessary are here: good writing, action and unexpected twists, characters you care about, and a deeper meaning.

Max Zaoui, critic extraordinaire

Patrice is a sci-fi, political thriller, and mystery writer who had a past as an intellectual property attorney. She is the series editor for the "Beyond the Stars" space opera anthologies. She also runs a niche indie publishing company and is a professional mezzo-soprano in her spare time. Patrice lives on the water in New England with her husband and is thrilled to be a successful indie writer.
