A glimpse into the world of WOOL

Way to short! I want to know more about this world!
Esther
amazing world building and character creation in so few words. The tension and my curiosity keep me turn pages. Short, brilliant now I need to read the rest
Vicky
An interesting little post-apocalyptic story. I can't wait to see what comes next in the sequels.
