Review quote

...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. THE SUNDAY TIMES For fans of apocalyptic thrillers who aren't afraid of the dark GLAMOUR.COM [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 The follow-up to the much-lauded The Passage deepens and darkens the apocalyptic events of the first book BELFAST TELEGRAPHshow more
