I won't give you spoilers and flaws, I will only tell you that if your heart strings are easily tugged, you may need tissues on occasion. I come in to this trilogy having read a few mixed reviews, so had no real expectations. In doing so, I have not been let down. I have caught myself laughing out loud, and wiping away tears. This story, up to this point, is not a happy go lucky kind of story. It also deals with vampires in a nonsparlkey nontraditional kind of way. Not what you would think exactly. And I shall leave you with that.
I just finished this book for the 2nd time. I read it the first time and decided to listen to the audiobook again before I read the 3rd book I the series. I remember thinking these 2 books are probably in my top 5 of all time. I enjoy fantasy and paranormal genre and have read tons of it. This storyline is totally different than anything I have read before.
I just finished the third in the series and will wax poetically in that review, but I must say that I am continually amazed at Cronin's writing ability, his ability to spin long narratives that keep me riveted, and how I grew to care about the people in the book.
Iam a 51 year old truckdriver I listen to Audible every day the books on sale makes the time fly and the miles roll on by
this will leave you begging for the tissues wondering wth and thanking god that there's one more story . I truly enjoyed this the twist and turns keep you going Scott Brick awesome story teller and justin croinin what an excellent weaver looking forward to book 3
It's back and forth, now and then, hard to keep up with characters, but I absolutely loved the story. This is one trilogy I'll probably end up reading, so I can slow down and absorb exactly what's happening with each of these characters and how they intermingle in the end. But, not before listening to them all, because Scott Brick does an excellent narration.
With all said and done, the plot seems to evolve around love. Love for one another, self sacrificing love that keeps humanity going, even when humanity is lost. All these complex characters are interwoven into an outstanding story that touches your heart. Sounds crazy, I know, when you think of an apocalyptic vampire story, but this world is so far beyond that, it is a "must listen"
I found the Passage to be pretty heavy in topic (obviously) but also in plot details. I was worried at first that taking time between diving into the second book would hinder my abilities to remember all of the characters and sub plots but the writing takes care of that and do so in a non-obvious "remember that??" Kind of a way.
