Staff Reviews


Epic stories like The Passage do not come along every year. This could have easily been split up into 2 or 3 books but Cronin is giving readers their money's worth in this fast-paced, deep, horror/sci-fi/apocalyptic novel. The night-walkers in this tale do not sparkle in the sun. They have razor sharp teeth and the ungodly desire to spread their infection. Justin Cronin has the literary skills of Cormac McCarthy and can write a fantasy as engrossing as Stephen King.
A Hudson Booksellers Best Book of 2010.

“Justin Cronin's incredible imagination takes the reader on a ride that is engrossing, thought-provoking, terrifying and above all, immensely entertaining. A diverse and engaging cast of characters dot the landscape in this sweeping novel that is both fantastical science fiction and heartbreaking drama. An absolutely thrilling read, The Passage is destined to reach a huge audience and leave everyone wanting more.”
