Description

In life I was a scientist called Fanning.Then, in a jungle in Bolivia, I died.I died, and then I was brought back to life... Prompted by a voice that lives in her blood, the fearsome warrior known as Alicia of Blades is drawn towards to one of the great cities of The Time Before. The ruined city of New York. Ruined but not empty. For this is the final refuge of Zero, the first and last of The Twelve. The one who must be destroyed if mankind is to have a future.What she finds is not what she's expecting. A journey into the past.To find out how it all began.And an opponent at once deadlier and more human than she could ever have imagined.show more

Review quote

'It is satisfying, powerful, brilliant stuff... In this day and age the word 'epic' is as overused as the word 'vampire' is mocked, but in the Passage Trilogy Justin Cronin has reclaimed them both.' * DEN OF GEEK * "A fitting end to one of the most ambition trilogies we've read in a while. Hopefully we'll see its like again soon." * SCI-FI NOW * Compulsively readable. * NEW YORK TIMES * 'This is positively gripping... Fast-paced, chilling and utterly engrossing this will keep you on edge right until the very end. I absolutely loved it.' * WOMAN'S WAY * Lyrical, towering, a worthy conclusion to what will quickly become a classic of fantasy and horror literature. * LOVE READING * 'Justin Cronin's Passage trilogy is remarkable for the unremitting drive of its narrative, for the breathtaking sweep of its imagined future, and for the clear lucidity of its language. THE CITY OF MIRRORS is a thrilling finale to a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction.' * Stephen King *show more
