Oftentimes a trilogy book visits the same characters over and over. I loved that we did that in this book but were also introduced to new characters. It allowed for a wider visualization of the world in which they were all living in.
In some ways it reminded me of The Stand. Not in the horror genre but in that you were seeing how day to day lives were affected by a catastrophe that was/is beyond ones control and the strength required to master it.
Great narrator! His voice is easy to listen to and had great syntax, energy, and heart.
Great read! It is a long book but carried its own weight throughout. Personally I love the long books as you truly get your moneys worth in hours. I was never bored and it definitely did not drag on. It was over before I knew it...in a good way. I will move on to book three as soon as possible.
This book was a great follow-on to the first. I am excited to get my hands on Book 3. Kudos to the Author, Juston Cronin, and narrator Scott Brick. I hope Scott will be narrating the third book. He does a fantastic job!
The first book made me think it would not be another vamp book. Wrong! I'm mad I paid for this book, and listened till the end.
I can't believe vampires or the divergent maze runner is the best you can come up with I kept my hopes up it would not be geared toward teen mentality. Disappointed
this book is great they should make it into a movie it would be nice if they came up with something original for once when making movies and this is the perfect fit I definitely recommend it
everything about this book was awesome I truly enjoyed it and can't wait for more maybe a TV show or a movie something like that would be awesome I just want more give me another book doesn't even matter love it thank you
The original virals from The Passage are still making the rounds a century later with a type of human, Red Eyes, helping them. These Red Eyes, aka collaborators shortened to Cols are a special type of depravity. The sacrifice their own species for snippets of power.
In Texas, the Expeditionary is about run out of wind for the hunt and destroy missions. The government there feels that it is almost more important to keep the fossil fuel sources protected than to go on the offensive against the remainder of the Twelve. There are some dissenters however. Survivors of The Colony, Amy the ageless hybrid, Alicia Denardio – protégé of Col. Coffey and others. They know there can be no end until patient zero and the eleven other original virals are ended.
Book 2 is quite a bit more raw than the Passage in some respects but you knew it would have to be. The blending of fiction and science to paint this post-vampire-apocalypse North American quarantine zone is top notch world building. One detractor for me was the author trying to juggle so many story-lines at once that the reader, or listener, can easily become confused in time and place.
This one gets four out of five entertainment units of your choice. Enjoy!
