Summary
  • "In The Passage and The Twelve, Justin Cronin brilliantly imagined the fall of civilization and humanity's desperate fight to survive. Now all is quiet on the horizon--but does silence promise the nightmare's end or the second coming of unspeakable darkness? At last, this bestselling epic races to its breathtaking finale. The world we knew is gone. What world will rise in its place? The Twelve have been destroyed and the hundred-year reign of darkness that descended upon the world has ended. The survivors are stepping outside their walls, determined to build society anew--and daring to dream of a hopeful future. But far from them, in a dead metropolis, he waits: Zero. The First. Father of the Twelve. The anguish that shattered his human life haunts him, and the hatred spawned by his transformation burns bright. His fury will be quenched only when he destroys Amy--humanity's only hope, the Girl from Nowhere who grew up to rise against him. One last time light and dark will clash, and at last Amy and her friends will know their fate. Praise for Justin Cronin "One of those rare authors who work on two different levels, blending elegantly crafted literary fiction with cliff-hanging thrills."--Fort Worth Star-Telegram The Passage "Magnificent. Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them. The Passage can stand proudly next to Stephen King's apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy's The Road."--Time "Read this book and the ordinary world disappears."--Stephen King "[A] big, engrossing read that will have you leaving the lights on late into the night."--The Dallas Morning News The Twelve "[A] literary superthriller, driven at once by character and plot."--The New York Times Book Review "Gripping. Cronin [introduces] eerie new elements to his masterful mythology."--The San Diego Union-Tribune "An undeniable and compelling epic. a complex narrative of flight and forgiveness, of great suffering and staggering loss, of terrible betrayals and incredible hope."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"--
  • "The third and final installment in the Passage trilogy. With The Twelve destroyed, many wonder if the threat to humankind also has vanished. But then a terrifying threat shudders the gates of the colony...and Amy--the girl who must save the world, Peter, Alicia, and Michael must at last confront their destinies"--

Summary
After the battle against The 12, Amy and her friends have gone in different directions. Peter has joined the settlement at Kerrville, Texas, and has ascended in its ranks despite his ambivalence about its ideals. Alicia has ventured into enemy territory, half-mad, on the hunt for the viral called Zero, who speaks to her in dreams. And Amy has vanished without a trace. With The 12 destroyed, the citizens of Kerrville are moving on with life. But the gates of Kerrville will soon shudder with the greatest threat humanity has ever faced.
