Purchased on Mighty Ape

It's easily one of the best books I've ever read. Once I started in on it I didn't want to put it down at all.

Amy Harper Bellafonte is six years old and her mother thinks she's the most important person in the whole world. She is. Anthony Carter doesn't think he could ever be in a worse place than Death Row. He's wrong. FBI agent Brad Wolgast thinks something beyond imagination is coming. It is. THE PASSAGE.


‘Every so often a novel-reader’s novel comes along: an enthralling, entertaining story wedded to simple, supple prose, both informed by tremendous imagination…It had the vividness that only epic works of fantasy and imagination can achieve..read this book and the ordinary world disappears.' Stephen King

“Cronin’s massive novel transcends its clichés and delivers a feverishly readable post-apocalyptic-cum-vampire chiller. It’s not only a brilliantly told story with thrilling plot twists and graphic action sequences, but a moving psychological portrait of survivors facing up to the poignant act of a lost past and a horrifically uncertain future” GUARDIAN

‘Magnificent…what makes The Passage special is the extraordinary level of verbal craft and psychological insight… Like some power-mad scientist, Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them… The Passage can stand next to Stephen King’s apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: a story about human beings trying to generate new hope in a world from which all hope has long since been burnt’ TIME magazine

‘This hefty apocalyptic beach read will grab you and throttle you like the zombified virals that menace its pages’ ENTERTAINMENT WE­EKLY

“Fans of vampire fiction who are bored by the endless hordes of sensitive, misunderstood Byronesque bloodsuckers will revel in Cronin’s engros­singly horrific account of a post-apocalyptic America…[Cronin] manages to engage the reader with a sweeping epic style.The first of a proposed trilogy, it's already under development by director Ridley Scott and the subject of much publicity buzz. Publishers Weekly

“The monsters in this compulsive nail biter are the scariest in fiction since Stephen King's vampires in Salem's Lot…This exceptional thriller should be one of the most popular novels this year and will draw in readers everywhere.”-Library Journal
