    In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver", has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Twelve: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    First, the story is just so layered and multi-faceted. It's so well-crafted that it feels like there is not a single thing that happens that does not have further significance. I literally didn't want to stop reading because I *had* to know what was next. Second, Scott Brick's narration is probably the best I've ever heard. It's flawless.


    What other book might you compare The Twelve: A Novel to and why?

    It is literally unlike any novel I've ever written. The Twelve isn't even similar to The Passage, at least the first half of it anyway.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    It's such a finely nuanced performance. Every character, it seems, has his/her own voice and none of it is forced or awkward.


    If you could rename The Twelve: A Novel, what would you call it?

    I don't know


    Any additional comments?

    There was a brief period I thought I wouldn't like this book. A lot of time was spent revisiting the initial infection time. I wanted the story to progress toward resolution, not revisit the past. However, not a word was wasted and it all come into play. I still liked The Passage better on the whole, but this book still remains a must-read.
