I loved the Passage and was very much looking forward to this new book. I purchased it as soon as it came out, however, it was dissapointing. I have to admit I felt a little cheated with this one. The story seemed dull comparison to the first book. If he writes another sequel I would buy it, with hope that it compares to the first book again.
If you enjoyed The Passage and want to see/hear where the author takes the story, I would recommend The Twelve.
Sorry! Don't want to spoil it!
He doesn't over perform the multiple characters. He keeps the story the focus of his performance.
Almost! I did spend extra time for several parts.
It started off quite interesting and got more so as the book went on.
Always wondering what is next.
The length of the book and time periods make it hard to compare this with any other book.
Amy--who was she really.
Kept you thinking.
Didn't find out till the end
Hard to rename this novel. What it is, it is.
Naration can make or break a book. This was in my opinion one of the best narrations I have listend to.
Very good book!
Yes ! Because I read book 1
Left the reader hanging ! It seemed like a set up for book 3
Not his best effort
Just looking for an enjoyable story! Books are my passion.
I LOVED The Passage. I was very excited when The Twelve was released. However, after listening for hours and hours, I would find my mind wandering, it was like the story just droned on and on. After the "bad vampire" was taken care of, I stopped listening. I couldn't believe there was still and hour left in the book. In other words, I found it boring.
No. It could have been much shorter.
Absolutely, this is a wonderful second book in the trilogy...though there are still some unanswered questions..
I love Alisha, but Michael is also one of my favorites. Lish is just amazing and strong. Michael is brilliant and sweet.
I enjoyed Sister Lacy in "The Passage" but, I like the portrayal of Lila in this book
Amy, I really would like to ask her all she knows and who all the people she was with after she left Walgast were. I'd also like to know more about April...
This book was a really wonderful read-listen- and I am excited for the next book, hoping it answers all of the questions I still have from the first book.
Not nearly as good as the passage. Seems slower paced, contrived.
Was really looking forward to this book after listening to The Passage. Not looking forward to third book.
I listen to a lot of audio books and tend to like books that are dark in content and humor.
Probably before the third one comes out.
He does an okay job.
Not as much as The Passage but still good.
The initial pace of the book was a let down and I almost considered shelving it. Luckily, it picked up and was a worthwhile read. Readers who are jumping into the series at this point beware; I think this book is not an entry point into the series as some trilogies allow. You had to have previous knowledge of the characters and their plight to appreciate the book. The back stories only allow you a glimpse.
The first installment of this trilogy was excellent. This book compares nicely in both character development and plot.
I found myself missing the protagonists in this book. They became real people to me and that's the sign of a good book. Also, I found that I truly hated the antagonists in this book and that is equally important.
May be better as a read book; plot got a bit unwieldy and it seemed like it needed more editing; interesting ideas but characters seemed 2-dimensional.
