On the Third Day: The Last War by King Lizzard is a graphic war novel that details a chemical war between Russia, America, and Germany. One could also argue that it’s a philosophical narrative, considering its prologue, which also acts as an introductory section to the book.

Sent to the North to observe possible missile attacks on Russia, the lazy and not very intelligent Yuri went recording the weather for the meteorological department. He intruded into the German airspace and got shot down.

In retaliation, the Russian government launched a deadly gas on the American military base in Ramstein, Germany. The gas, which was a compound of Agent BZ (3-quinuclidine benzilate), had an effect of turning its victims into rampaging lunatics with intense rage that made them kill those close to them, and even themselves. Within an hour, all the personnel at Ramstein and Spangehlem, the US airbases in Germany were all dead! The gas was spreading so fast and was threatening to attack the whole of Germany. Will Germany and America Control the situation and retaliate?

This was a fast-paced action-packed novel with a very interesting storyline. On whether this is a fictional book, the author says that,
Most of the events detailed herein were recovered from an item called a “black box,” which was buried under the Indian Ocean, presumably from some sort of wreckage. Many of the details were harvested from other resources, and some of this sh*t was just made up, clear, plain and simple, for entertainment value.
Some themes covered included war, leadership, pain and suffering among others. All these themes, accompanied by efficiently developed characters and an exciting storyline, made the book one of the most enjoyable reads I’ve ever had for years. Divided into twelve chapters, with multiple subheadings, this 280-paged book is well structured and easy to read.

I liked almost everything about this novel. To begin with, the multiple subheadings, which contained the location and both the local and the GMT time helped to create powerful imagery that made me feel like I was part of the story. Just from the beginning, this book starts off with action-packed scenes and maintains them throughout the novel.

Although this was a great book, I found multiple grammatical errors. Some, if not most of the errors were very obvious and easily noticeable. This made me ask myself whether the book was edited at all. It should, therefore, undergo a thorough editing process to eliminate these errors.

To conclude, this was a very good book. I rate it 4 out of 4 stars. Although I found the aforementioned errors, they didn’t affect my enjoyment at all. A single round of editing should be able to eliminate them. There were several graphic scenes and multiple profane words. People who hate these might not enjoy it. I recommend it to those who enjoy fast-paced action-packed novels with mild philosophy. Because of its strong language and scary scenes, children shouldn’t read it.

I was attracted to this book by it's Title. But there is so much real horror to draw from in the world around me, I would rather get lost in a more pleasant story. Thank you for your review, thought.

Thanks for your great review which gave me a good insight about the book that details a chemical war between Russia, America, and Germany. The Agent BZ appears to be quite deadly.
life is only knowing the unknown, we can do this by reading books easily- I believe this is my own quote. If someone quoted this before I am glad to know.

This sounds like a super exciting book! i’m not into action-packed narratives, but you wrote a very insightful and well rounded review.

Your review intrigues me so much that I want to get this book now. I wonder whether the Germans and Americans will be able to control this deadly gas. Thanks for the wonderful review.

The author must be a good storyteller to be able to weave a book with well-developed characters, a good storyline, and major themes such as war, pain and the like. Great to know that you enjoyed the book despite its editing shortcomings. Thanks for the great review.
