Review quote

An incredibly creepy and effective standalone novel that I read through in one sitting . . . A chillingly effective and haunting tale * Sci-Fi Bulletin * Sarah Lotz is a natural born storyteller. Like the hand reaching up from the dark well, she'll drag you into her thrall. You'll come up gasping. -- Lauren Beukes THE THREE is really wonderful. A cross between Michael Crichton and Shirley Jackson, hard to put down and vastly entertaining. -- Stephen King on THE THREEshow more
