Four plane crashes.
A message that will change the world . . .
Sleep has been lost. Work has been neglected. Jaws have dropped. The Three is gripping all who dare to read it, and here’s a round-up of just a few of the reactions to Sarah Lotz’s unforgettable new thriller.
‘The Three is really wonderful, a mix of Michael Crichton and Shirley Jackson. Hard to put down and vastly entertaining.’ – Stephen King

‘One of the finest, freakiest horror novels I’ve read.’ – Chuck Wendig
‘The finest thriller I’ve read in years. Dark, subtle and completely unputdownable, I was enthralled from the opening line to the last.’ – Sarah Pinborough
‘It’s reminiscent of Stephen King’s Carrie and The Three comes preloaded with praise from the master of horror himself. It deserves it: this high-concept thriller is a blast.’ –The Guardian

‘‘Imaginative, intelligent, brilliantly written, giving any mind an intense work out of the kind that extends into your dreams (or nightmares) and takes over your life for a while, this is absolutely one NOT to be missed.’ – Liz Loves Books
‘Lotz weaves strands of dread into this narrative with care, until the tapestry of the story resonates with multiple levels of fear.’ – Glen Mehn
‘This is a novel that really does deserve to be a massive hit, and I can’t wait to see what Sarah Lotz does next.’ – Wilder’s Book Review
‘The Three is chillingly brilliant, a masterpiece of a story that leaves the reader hanging on every word’ – Starburst
‘Lotz manages to weave horror, dread, sorrow and satire expertly into what is, no doubt, one of the best books you’ll read this year.’ – Joe Vaz
The Three is one of the best novels I’ve read in a long time. Expertly constructed and gripping, this deserves to be a massive hit. Certainly one of 2014’s Must Reads. – Civilian Reader

‘ A very creepy, very effective novel.’ – David Pitt, Booklist
