This Omnibus Edition collects the five Wool books into a single volume. The first Wool story was released as a standalone short in July of 2011. Due to reviewer demand, the rest of the story was released over the next six months. My thanks go out to those reviewers who clamored for more. Without you, none of this would exist. Your demand created this as much as I did. This is the story of mankind clawing for survival, of mankind on the edge. The world outside has grown unkind, the view of it limited, talk of it forbidden. But there are always those who hope, who dream. These are the dangerous people, the residents who infect others with their optimism. Their punishment is simple. They are given the very thing they profess to want: They are allowed outside.
In a future toxic landscape, a community that lives in an underground silo is rocked by the desire of Sheriff Holston, who has upheld the group's rules for years, to go outside, setting in motion events that kindle the fire of revolution.
*THE COMPLETE TRILOGY, BOOKS 1, 2, and 3* Returning to the place where you were born—after vanishing into thin air—is bound to be eventful, and there’s no guarantee what you’ll find when you come back. Abandoned in the middle of America when she was a child, Alex Kelley has come home. When she gets off of a plane and ends up in a familiar little shop in Greenwich Village where the merchandise is odd and exceptionally rare, she’ll unleash the secrets that have been waiting for her since the day she disappeared twenty-one years ago—the night her mother was viciously murdered. But some family secrets are best left buried, because Fitheach blood doesn’t just run through the veins––it’s a binding contract that can never be broken. From New York City to an ancient circle in Ireland, Alex Kelley will eventually discover why there’s no place like home. WARNING: These are not standalone books. THE BLOOD THIEF continues where The AMULET THIEF ends, and THE DESTINY THIEF will culminate into the stunning conclusion to a story that will have you glued to the pages until the very last word. Get some sleep while you can. Included in the boxed set: The Amulet Thief (Book 1) The Blood Thief (Book 2) The Destiny Thief (Book 3)
