"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 tossing Mad Max, Neuromancer and Metal Gear Solid into a blender. If you 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."

Cities and wastelands are now hunting grounds for cybernetic zombies that seek - Borg-like - to infest others. Humans hole up in fortified towns like the frontiers of old and farm and scavenge and trade for what they can. What law remains issues from the barrel of a gun, in the form of nuclear bullets or EMP bolts.
We have our protagonist: Three. A lone bounty hunter who lives by the gun and hunts outlaw scum in the poisoned wastes, though his warrior skills and buried sense of honor hint at more lofty origins. His past is a mystery and his future the pathless plain of a ronin, until Cass, a young mother, and her son Wren flee across his path. The pair are pursued by a band of genetically and cybernetically enhanced mercenaries.
Three takes on the role of protector and guide, escorting mother and child to safety even if that means matching his guns with elite killers, one by one. All the while, the mysterious pasts of the characters and the strange history of the world are gradually revealed.
What is the secret of Three's past? Why do monstrous killers hunt this seemingly innocent mother and child? What series of events brought civilization to such technologically heights, and such a crashing fall? Answers await as the action builds toward the final showdown in the near-legendary city of Morningside.
This is one of those rare books that kept me reading long into the night and continually called me back to see what would happen next. Posey's control of the narrative is masterful, the pacing is flawless and the author exerts a maestro's skill with point of view. The reader is fed just enough information to keep them on tenderhooks as they race through the text, and I know this book is due for a re-read. After my completion of the rather grimly-titled second installment.
Definitely give this one a try.
I won't give any spoilers, but if you are a fan of PA lit, you must read this novel. I truly fell in love with it. I've recommended it to my own readers, and have bought hard copies for several of my friends.
Most of the world is still linked to satellite technology thru implants in their skulls,others have implants that do everything from upgrading their bodies to extending their lives. But no one can leave after dark...
A bounty hunter becomes involved in helping a woman and her child get away from danger and the trials they encounter to get away to safety. When I read this book, the main character named Three had Vin Diesel's voice - if this were a movie Vin Diesel/Riddick would get the part!
excellent read -good editing -worth the money -extremely satisfying ending
