The epic story of THE PASSAGE continues.

About the Author

Born and raised in New England, Justin Cronin is a multi-award-winning writer. He is Professor of English at Rice University, and lives with his family in Houston, Texas.


Cronin's sequel to his 2010 best-selling The Passage is not a straight continuation of that novel. Here, he introduces new characters and a new plotline while advancing the story about the spread of a human-made apocalypse. A foreword neatly recaps the first book's highlights, allowing listeners to jump right in. Scott Brick's deliberate narration is serviceable but suffers from a monotonic delivery and lack of emotional range. VERDICT Fans of The Passage and of horror will not be disappointed. ["Cronin's masterly prose and intricate plotting bring an entire world to life...[the] vast scope of his story begs favorable comparisons to epics such as J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and Stephen King's The Stand," read the review of the New York Times best selling Ballantine hc, LJ 9/1/12.-Ed.]-Julie Judkins, Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor (c) Copyright 2013.
