The new novel from the international bestselling author of the Wool trilogy. 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. Palmer has never been the same since his father walked out twelve years ago. His elder sister, Vic, is trying to run away from the past; his younger brothers, Connor and Rob, are risking their lives to embrace it. His mother, left with nothing but anger, is just trying to forget. Palmer wants to prove his worth, not only to his family, but to himself. And in the barren, dune-covered landscape of his home, there is only one way to earn respect: sand-diving. Plunging deep below the desert floor in search of relics and scraps of the old world. He is about to embark on the most dangerous dive of his young life, aiming to become the first to discover the rumoured city below. Deep within the sand lies the key to bringing his family together - and tearing their world apart.

"Sand" är inget undantag. I denna boken möter vi en framtid där världen täckts av sand. Som läsare väver Howey vackert ihop fyra syskons berättelse. Det enda jag saknar är att boken tar slut fort. Uppvärmningen är lång och slutet är kort, om man säger så. Som läsare vill man liksom få veta mer än man får, och ibland und... Läs hela recensionen

Sand shows the success of Howey's Wool Trilogy was no fluke. This is a superior SF thriller, both slick and gritty. * Financial Times * This terrifically fresh and well-realised setting provides the background for a richly emotional story about families and communities. * Morning Star * In short, Sand will earn Mr Howey another well-deserved million or more. * Daily Sport * Hugh Howey can really write. * SFX * Sand immerses you in its grubby post-apocalyptic world ... Howey conjures a credible, brutal future. * Financial Times *
