"Stark and powerful, THREE is a stunning debut. Reinventing the post-apocalyptic western as a journey across interior badlands as dangerous as the cyborg-haunted terrain his hero must cross, Posey has crafted a story that is impossible to put down."
- Richard E. Dansky, author of "Snowbird Gothic"
""Three"feels like the result of tossingMad Max, Neuromancer and Metal Gear Solid into a blender. Ifyou don't find that combination appealing, then I do not understand you as a human being."
-Anthony Burch, writer for "Borderlands 2 "and "Hey Ash Watcha Playin"
"Jay Posey creates a vivid and mesmerizing world whose characters are so real and so flawed that you'll recognize them immediately. An unforgettable read."
-Peter Telep, co-author of the #1"NY Times"Bestseller"Against All Enemies"
"A post-apocalyptic road yarn sure to yank your trigger and tug at your heart."
- Matt Forbeck, author of"Amortals"and"Dangerous Games
.".".there s no doubt that Posey is someone to definitely watch as a rising star with this debut."

The story takes place in a dystopian future earth after some (so-far) unexplained war or catastrophe.
Mankind is much reduced in number and forced to live underground or in heavily defended towns and cities. No-one ventures out at night due to the ravaging hordes of zombie-like creatures. Sound familiar, like its been done so many times before?
However, this is not just a standard zombie-versus-survivor story. There are tantalizing glimpses what human kind may have become in the near future - genetic modifications to allow wifi access to the equivalent of the 'net (strangely still running), designer drugs that can boost mental and physical prowess and even genetic manipulation to near super-power levels. Even the zombie "weir" seem to be electronically animated, perhaps the result of so much electronic grafting and connection?
One of the strength of the novel is that none of these questions are answered in this first book, and don't distract from the story. This is the tale of a lone, dangerous and mysterious traveler 'Three' who is one of the few who will brave the outside and the Weir. After a spontaneous act of charity he finds himself responsible for a young woman and her mysterious child. What follows is a long trip of danger and discovery with them running from her jacked-up pursuers, and discovering each others secrets and hidden past.
I suspect that this is the start of a series (It seems to be compulsory these days when every new sci-fi/fantasy is a trilogy or more), but without spoilers won't say any more. As stated in the title this seems to be the Author's debut novel so is all the more impressive for that. There is much space for expansion of the world and characters.
I will certainly be buying the next novel from this author, whether it is part 2 of 'Legends...' or stand-alone.
All Cass wants is to keep her son safe but she is far from well and very vulnerable and Three is
moved by her plight.
The world is a dark and dangerous place peopled by Weirs with glowing blue eyes, zombie like creatures who kill any humans out after dark. The humans who survived the devastation of the earth have enhanced powers and abilities but must still lock themselves away during the hours of darkness.
It's a fascinating and gritty story, full of action, intrigue and suspense. The action scenes are vividly described with no hold barred. The characters are compelling and it's easy to invest in them. There are teary moments involving Cass and Wren and the ending is totally unexpected...and sad.
Five star narration and voice characterisation from Luke Daniels. Impossible not to be moved to sadness, feel the tension and suspense.
