After I read a book that I just LOVE I kind of mourn it……I am sad it is over and sad the characters are no longer in my life. That is what happened with “My name is memory” the book I finished 2 weeks ago. Since then I have tried to start 3 different books but nothing with capture my interest like “Memory” did. It makes it tough, the bar is set too high! BUT….I started a new book Friday night that is #7 on the NY Times best seller list and I am hoping this is the book to get me out of my funk! Bare with me this may take me awhile it is HUGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is what this book is about……….
The Passage takes readers on a journey from the early days of the virus to the aftermath of the destruction, where packs of hungry infected scour the razed, charred cities looking for food, and the survivors eke out a bleak, brutal existence shadowed by fear. Cronin doesn’t shy away from identifying his “virals” as vampires. But, these are not sexy, angsty vampires (you won’t be seeing “Team Babcock” t-shirts any time soon), and they are not old-school, evil Nosferatus, either. These are a creation all Cronin’s own–hairless, insectile, glow-in-the-dark mutations who are inextricably linked to their makers and the one girl who could destroy them all. A huge departure from Cronin’s first two novels, The Passage is a grand mashup of literary and supernatural, a stunning beginning to a trilogy that is sure to dazzle readers of both genres
So if anyone wants to jump on the bandwagon and read along….please do. It has been awhile since I have read anything in a “Thriller/Horror” category. I hope this won’t make my nightmares worse! ha!
