In his internationally bestselling and critically acclaimed novel The Passage, Justin Cronin constructed an unforgettable world transformed by a government experiment gone horribly wrong.   With The Twelve, the story continues.   In the present day: As a man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos, desperate to find others, to survive, to witness the dawn on the other side of disaster. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, has been so broken 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 by loss of electrical power 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 minefield of death and ruin. These three will learn that they have not been fully abandoned—and that in connection lies hope, even on the darkest of nights.   A hundred years in the future: Amy, Peter, Alicia, and the others introduced in The Passage work with a cast of new characters to hunt the original twelve virals . . . unaware that the rules of the game have changed, and that one of them will have to sacrifice everything to bring the Twelve down.   The scope widens and the intensity deepens as the epic tale of sacrifice and survival begun in The Passage surges forward in its breathtaking sequel—The Twelve.

I'm not sure why I didn't enjoy this book so much the first time around.This time I enjoyed it immensely. It has a different pace to 'The Passage', faster with more action. I'm not sure I could really reconcile loopy Lila with the Lila from 'before' but then I am no psychologist. Also, I feel the au...

3.0 The Twelve
I remember The Passage as an incredible fast read and with the City of Mirrors being published recently, it was more than time to finally read The Twelve. It more or less follows after The Passage, but also goes back in time to for example the first days of the outbreak. I thought that after the e...

2.5 The Twelve
The story picks up much like the first book did, after a summary of the first book, we followed a new group people following the initial outbreak then jump forward about a hundred years to the group of people we followed in the last book. (This book takes place 5 years after the last book ended.) ...
