"... I found this, the 2nd. bk. VERY disturbing -"
-but & @ the same time totally alluring as well...
?A tad 'paradoxical', if you will!
"The series gets better and better"
Thoroughly enjoyed the second book (and straight on to book 3 for me). Love Scott Brick's performance, will hunt out more of his work.
I read the first two books of this trilogy a few years ago and enjoyed them so much I have re read them while waiting for the final instalment which I am about to start now. I highly recommend these books to anyone who loves intelligent well written adult horror fiction.
Brillante book couldn't put it down, I would recommend to walking dead fans can't wait to start the 3rd book
"Darker than night thicker than blood, just despair"
This is even darker than the passage, the sense of angst and the bleakness of the situation soaks every page not in red blood but black despair, this is a book that makes 1984 seem happy by comparison.
We start at the beginning and are reintroduced to a minor character that moves the plot in the future a recounting of the Passage story in a biblical format is given, to remind you of old events then we move 90 years ahead into a future where some of the old hero's are still trying to save humanity against big odds, the vampires are organized and have plans of their own and they dispense with all niceties to feed enslave and grow.
This is a good second part if you do not mind blick apocalyptic living, torture,terror and terrorism al through the story, for me the length of the book is oppressive and represents way more time than I want to spend in a hellish place.
I didn't think you could get any better than the passage but this book took it to the next level. Brilliant book brilliant writer and read beautifully by Scott brick
"even better the second time"
read these books when they first came out, loved the audio narration. about to start the third book, doing it directly on audio because of how much I've enjoyed
Fantastic story. can't wait for the last one. Thank you author and the great narrayor
I finished The Passage and couldn't wait to get started on The Twelve. The narration is superb, Scott Brick has the perfect voice for this and is so easy to listen to. Loved everything about it and now have the final book in my basket and am waiting for my next credit to appear any day now.
Earphones are charged up and at the ready - can't wait to listen to the final part of this trilogy.
The second book in The Passage trilogy improves on the excellent first, drawing the various characters out and giving them compelling arcs.
Whilst still a very long read (listen!?) this book is faster paced than the first, with altogether more happening throughout.
Cannot recommend highly enough, but I would still suggest listening at 1.25x pace as, at normal speed, the narration can be a tad ponderous
Bring on the City of Mirrors!!
