Review quote

A compulsive read. * SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE * [A] literary superthriller. * NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW * The follow-up to the much-lauded The Passage deepens and darkens the apocalyptic events of the first book * BELFAST TELEGRAPH * [The Passage was] smart, well-crafted and entertaining ...The Twelve delivers much of the same vitality and vision. Like it's predecessor, it is a strange new creature for the 21st century: The literary superthriller, driven at once by character and plot. * INTERNATIONAL HERALD TRIBUNE * For fans of apocalyptic thrillers who aren't afraid of the dark * GLAMOUR.COM * ...as exhilarating as The Passage, with people variously trapped in hideous bleak labour camps, engaging in cage fights with virals (Cronin's name for vampires) or chained up for decades. * SUNDAY TIMES *show more
