Trapped in an underground silo because the air outside is too toxic to breathe, the people of Silo 1000 are very aware they're only one of many such self-contained units. Human survival is top priority as they wait for the day they can once again walk the earth.
In such a reality, Maryann Holston never bothered trying to fall in love. She knows she'll have to take whatever fate the silo thinks is best for the betterment of all. But as she runs into childhood friend, Paul Allison, she realizes that maybe love is exactly what her life needs. No longer the lanky boy from her youth, Paul is everything a woman could want and she intends to be his wife...until the unthinkable happens.
There are those who will stop at nothing to make sure Maryann is out of the picture--permanently--and Paul's ready to prove he's willing to do anything to save the woman he loves.
Includes: A Silo 1000 Romance Three Part Serial
Ms Pillow is primarily a romance author and a steamy one at that, but here she clearly just enjoys telling a story and it's a cracking one at that! This is in three parts and tells the story of Maryann, a young nurse living in silo 1000, where only 1000 people are allowed at any one time. Someone has to leave or die in order for anyone else to be born or allowed in. It's a harsh way of living and indeed could be considered hell on earth, but it's what those who live there are used to and so no one questions their way of life.
Paul is a medical pharmacist and as such is highly valued, but when he reconnects with Maryann, the girl he played with as a child, he realises he is in the position of finally making her his wife. Unfortunately, Paul is desired by the mayor’s daughter, Missy, and a fiendish plot tears Maryann and Paul apart. Maryann is forced to go to silo 998 where there's a dangerous epidemic. Will the two ever be together again?
Silo 1000 was completely different to anything else I have read by Ms Pillow, but I found it to be hugely entertaining! This was so addictive I didn't stop reading until I had finished. Well done Ms Pillow! I thought it was an amazing look at the Wool world and even though it lacks your trade mark heat, I truthfully enjoyed it. A little shorter than I like but simply fabulous.
