This, I am particularly excited about. The cover for Justin Cronin’s upcoming book, The Twelve, the sequel to the amazing post-apocalyptic vampire novel, The Passage (released in 2010), has finally been revealed by EW. To be honest, the cover is nothing special (then again The Passage cover wasn’t too exciting either), but what is exciting is that we finally have a release date for the […]

The paperback version of Justin Cronin’s popular book contains an exclusive excerpt from book two in the trilogy, The Twelve, which will be out in 2012.

The Passage by Justin Cronin and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Emily St. John Mandel over at The Millions observes that post-apocalyptic fiction seems to be everywhere this summer, and I couldn’t agree more. The two books I was looking forward to reading the most this summer—The Passage by Justin Cronin and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins—both fall into the dystopian/post-apocalyptic genre. This is actually something new for me because I didn’t always like these types of […]

Now that I’ve read it, I think it deserves all the hype that surrounds it and then some. The Passage is an ambitious, epic story that manages to be grounded in science, yet mystical at the same time. It grabbed me from the […]


THE PASSAGE by Justin Cronin May Be the Hottest Book of the Summer

| Jun 7 | 0 Comments

The Passage by Justin Cronin debuts on Tuesday, June 8, 2010, but it has been getting a ton of buzz for months now. It’s the first book in a planned trilogy, and, yes, it’s about vampires, but these are no sparkly, vegetarian vampires. In The Passage, a military experiment to create super soldiers goes awry and millions of people end up infected with a virus […]
