The Three
In the novel, the Three, Four planes crash down in different locales throughout the world. The only survivors in the plane crash are three children from three different crash sites. However, despite the fact that there were only three children who were rescued, rumors have it that there might be a fourth child who survived the crash. Before the planes went down, one woman, Pamela May Donald, had the opportunity of sending a cryptic message. The cryptic message was sent to one of local Pastors in the United States, Len. In the message, Pamela May Donald alludes of a boy and the dead people. While searching the answers, the pastor comes to the assumption that the three children, who survived the plane crash, could be part of the prophesized four horsemen. If the three children were part of the four horsemen, then their arrival would mean that the end times were approaching rapidly.

However, the conspiracy theorists believe that the three children had been abducted by aliens or had been possessed by aliens. However, according to the religious zealots, there is a fourth child who survived the plane crash and must be found quickly. Nonetheless, when the three children are finally returned to their relatives, a sudden change in their behavior is quickly noted. All the relatives brush off the sudden behavior change considering the fact that the children had just survived a plane crush. With that said, the Three has also been written as a non-fiction book under the title, Black Thursday; From-Crash to Conspiracy. A fictional character, Elspeth Martins, has written Black Thursday. If you have read World War Z, then the Three has been written in a similar manner by making use of the testimonies of the witnesses and also news articles, chat room transcripts and blog posts as well.

The chapters in the Three alternate between the the various individuals who are involved with the three survivors. The life after the survivor is the main theme in the chapters that follow. Each of the witness accounts is absolutely amazing, and the readers are going to be completely engaged. With that said, the three is a well-written and compelling narrative, which displays a unique writing style, which was quite absorbing. Narrated in a similar manner to World War Z, using phone transcripts and conversations, emails, interviews, The Three set-up was not only engaging but also eminently devourable. The ending was quite phenomenal.

Day Four
Day Four is the second installment in the Three book series. The narrative begins as more than three thousand passengers are aboard the luxury liner, Beautiful Dreamer. For more than three days, the passengers have experienced smooth sailing. Nonetheless, on the fourth day, things begin to take a turn for the worse. After a fire incidence in the engine room, the head engineer is burnt badly. Furthermore, the fire incidence affected the ship’s electrical supply system, which in the process interfered with its communication system as well. A breakdown in the communication system meant that there was no Wi-Fi, no phone service, and emergency radio. Thus, there was no way of contacting anyone who was outside the ship. Due to a limited supply of generators, the generators are only for limited use only.

It does not take long before; a highly contagious norovirus begins to spread among the luxury liner’s passengers. Eventually, food supplies begin to subside, the toilets, on the other hand, stop to function, while dirty piles of used towels continue to rise. The cabins on the other hand reek of diarrhea and vomit, and the passengers end up becoming belligerent. The pools, on the other hand, continue to become polluted and thus people begin to camp out of their decks and the recreation areas. A body of a dead girl is found in her cabin, and instantly, it is ruled as a murder case. Adding to the confusion, the Public Address system keeps on thanking the passengers for their patience; however, no real information about what is really happening is provided. From the look of things, help is not coming anytime soon.

The passengers begin to become frightened and eventually begin offering wild speculations about what was actually going on. The narrative follows a couple of crewmembers and passengers as the situation continues to unfold. Some of the crewmembers include Paul, an accidental murderer/rapist, Celine, a fake medium who has the ‘ability’ of conveying messages from loved ones who are on the other side. Others include Maddie, Celine’s assistant who assists her boss to rook her marks, Xavier; a renowned blogger who is more than determined to expose Celine, Helen and Elsie; two widowed friends who are planning to commit suicide. As things continue to become tough and tougher, the mayhem is escalated by numerous supernatural creatures, which are seen and heard by crewmembers and passengers. As the situation on the luxury, liner continues to become more and more unbearable; the people aboard continue to resort to various drastic measures.

From the first page, Day Four holds the attention of the readers as they try to find establish what was actually going on and what was going to be the outcome. Towards the end of the Four, it is not absolutely clear, what had just taken place, but the speculation was quite intriguing. Overall, Day Four is a highly entertaining horror story that is not too deep but quite intriguing. Author Sarah Lot has once again delivered an intriguing narrative that is gorgeously creepy and thoroughly haunting. Author Sara Lotz has managed to build tension with clever, obscure foreshadowing and some extremely elegant writing. In Day Four, Lotz carefully builds her world; a world that is not only off-kilter but also highly intriguing.
