The book description

They're here ... The boy. The boy watch the boy watch the dead people oh Lordy there's so many ... They're coming for me now. We're all going soon. All of us. Pastor Len warn them that the boy he's not to.......

The last words of Pamela May Donald (1961 - 2012)

Black Thursday! At four different points around the world, four passenger planes crash at almost exactly the same time - This day will never be forgotten by anyone

Its a miracle that there are only four survivors of the crashes.Three are children, who emerge from the wreckage seemingly unhurt - But they are not unchanged. And the fourth is Pamela May Donald, who lives just long enough to record a voice message on her phone. A message that will change the world.

The message is a warning.

The book goes on to follow these 3 children who go back to their seemingly normal life, but things are far from normal. Things are different and for those children and their families. Odd things start to happen, A seemingly senile man suddenly starts to recover from Dementia when his grandson come home from the crash and the other two children are acting very odd too. The families think its normal behaviour after the crash but is there something else at work here???

What Did i think of the Book?

I got into the book within the first few pages and i actually couldn't put it down. But looking back, choosing to start reading it a few days before i flew to Norway with my 4 year old child was probably not the best idea! So i did put it down for a while and picked it up when i was home, and soon got right back into the story. The descriptions and the way the book is written made the story so realistic to me.

When the planes all crashed and it described the people waiting at the airport, the way they got the news and following the first few pages of the families being told of the crashes made me feel like i was actually in the story. I like the way the book is set out as a person interviewing the relatives, professionals and friends of the plane crash and the way it goes from person to person. It kept the story alive and almost real to me. Many people are 'interviewed' in the book to get different perspectives of what happened, together with conspiracy theories. I did lose the storyline a bit in the middle, but stuck with the story and soon got back on track with it.

The end of the story was left open, with me wondering what really did happen and i couldn't take my mind off the story for a few days.

It is described as a horror story, and it delivers! These children that survive the crash are creepy and the way they change the lives of those around them is creepy too. I look forward to many more books from Sarah Lotz.
