Day Four – which has a killer animated cover – is the follow-up to Lotz’s international hit The Three (although not a sequel, per se), and will be available in South Africa in late June or early July.
Here’s what he had to say:
The new Sarah Lotz novel,DAY FOUR, is really good. USA edition comes out June 15. It's the cruise ship from hell.

King is a known fan of The Three, having called it “really wonderful .. hard to put down and vastly entertaining”.
He also called it “a work like a bomb” in Turkish – if Google translate informs us correctly:

Lotz signed a six-figure book deal for the two books with Hodder & Stoughton ahead of the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair, and Company Pictures in London acquired the TV rights in 2013. What we’re trying to say is … if you haven’t read it yet, you should move it to the top of your to-read pile.
