Though Dust is largely plot-driven, it is worth mentioning that the writing itself, for all its lack of elegance or beauty, is certainly better than adequate. The characters actually have individual voices - something very rarely the case in stories with multiple viewpoints. Howey pulls together threads from both prequels in a tense and dramatic lead up to the grand finale of the series.
I did find that having missed reading Shift I was left a little lost in the scenes with Charlotte and her brother - this is definitely not a novel that can be slipped into comfortably without prior knowledge of Howey’s post-apocalyptic world. It is, however, a decent conclusion to a very good trilogy, and one fans should be satisfied by.
