The Twelve (The Passage Trilogy #2) by Justin Cronin
The Twelve (The Passage Trilogy #2)

jewels, January 5, 2013

Justin Cronin is someone I stumbled across on a 'grab and peruse' trip to the library. We've all done it - stand in the library pulling random books of the shelf and reading the back or inside jacket cover, flipping through a page or two and we either put it back or say "I'll give it a go" and take it home. I took him home.
The Passage was amazing! Loved every minute of it, until the last few pages. I couldn't believe we were left adrift like that! I was so torn - I wanted to recommend the book to everyone I knew and yet warn them, "Its a great book with a horrible ending!" at the same time! So imagine my joy when on my next trip to the library I decided to do a search by author and see what else Mr Cronin might have written that I could read, only to discover Book 2 of the trilogy was due out in a matter of weeks! The story continues!!!!!
I was not disappointed, and this time when the ending came and again left me less than satisfied - I was OK knowing that there will be a Book 3 to sate my appetite for the world and characters Mr Cronin has created!
These books have it all. Government conspiracy, virus gone bad, Vampires for adults (not the Twilight kind), love, friendship, true companionship, suspense, mystery.....I could go on!
All I can say is read it and love it and wait not so patiently for Book 3....
