Product description

Product 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.

The Passage - soon to be an epic drama on Fox from writer Elizabeth Heldens and executive producer Ridley Scott.

I have read The Passage twice
I have read The Twelve twice
So I feel more than qualified to comment on The City Of Mirrors.
This is a really good book and I'd definitely rate it ahead of The Twelve which had too many plot holes for my liking

I always wondered how Cronin would wrap things up , I need not have worried- he pretty much nails it . I particularly enjoyed the last 5% which unexpectedly jumps to another time period , location along with completely new characters, I was reading wondering where is this headed ? Again , there is a delightful pay off upon conclusion

Some lingering mysteries from the previous 2 books are clarified which was appreciated e.g Amy at the zoo and Greer , along with a better understanding of the global break down in general

It's by no means a perfect book , I am particularly unhappy in relation to developments involving one of the major characters and there are some events which are hard to fathom

It's pretty simple really , if you've read 1 and 2 you HAVE to read this one , that's all there is to it

After the decimation of the original twelve antivirals, The City of Mirrors continues hot on the heels of the settling dust.

Amy, who gave up her humanity to protect those who took her in, lives inside Carter’s world, where the crime he was incarcerated for was never committed. Her ever-faithful disciple Lucius ensures the two are fed.

The residents of the Republic of New Texas are no longer afraid the virals will return. They are spreading out to unprotected farms. Others may forget the past but the originals from First Colony wait, wary, even though twenty years of peace has dulled the edges of their survival instinct. Michael has never forgotten and he works with Lucius, on the last stage move, even as he gathers intelligence on what has happened to the rest of the world.

But unaccounted for is the original viral, Zero, formerly known as Professor Tim Fanning. It was clear that the battle for survival was never over. A breath was being drawn before the final showdown. A game plan laid out by the smartest of the virals, who has always had the time to wait, who knows the long game intimately. And all the reader can do is wait for the showdown.

The Passage Trilogy is a more original take on the vampire narrative: no sparkles or velvets and heaving bosoms here. The virals are ruthless and murderous, humanity’s most feared predator. This is the apocalyptic explosion. I have previously reviewed the other books in the series for SQ Mag, found in Editions 6 and 7.

The City of Mirrors is post-apocalyptic creature decimation, a slow build of impending doom, the last threads of the viral takeover interweaving with the gullibility of a humanity that believes the worst is over.

This has been a really good trilogy, the best one I've read in such a long time. This really has to be a movie and it really needs a great director and a great production team, it really is that good. You won't go wrong reading this series, you'll find it very hard to put down. Love it:)

Lived this book. I was worried that I wouldn't recall the story as it has been a while since the second book, but I need not have worried! I enjoyed this book most of all in the series and had some extremely late night. Highly recommend this one

Wow! Such a good story across 3 books, and so well told.
The climax of the series had me unable to put the book down, but also not wanting the story to end.
As well as concluding the story, this book wraps up the events for the characters in such a considered way I was left glowing at the end.
My new favourite series, and one I heartily recommend.

Some people may not enjoy the stories but I loved them. So much death in the first one, thank goodness the second had more hope in it. The final tidied it all up for an ending I think I can live with.

This was a satisfying conclusion to Justin Cronin's Passage trilogy. Beautifully crafted backstory and bitter-sweet narratives sit alongside suspenseful action and sweeping battle scenes. Expect tinges of melancholy and triumph from this denouement.
