The Passage

In Justin Cronin's The Passage, the first installment in his futuristic thriller trilogy series, you would be taken into a whole new world as we know it. With a combination of paranormal/urban fantasy/horror into this thriller, this is epic and long like Ken Follett's The Pillars of the Earth historical fiction series. With a paranormal feel to it than horror with sci fi and fantasy elements, it had launched a trilogy and reminiscent William Golding's the Lord of the Flies, without the cannibalism parts. Welcome to their world, when an epidemic virus had flat lined the total country population with war-torn states as their own countries. We follow Peter and Amy in their fight of survival against the virals who had decimated their families and the whole country. With their circle of twelve friends, when they fall in love to find their own victory with a band of their brothers and sisters. Non-stop, we learn about their lives and how they came to this stage of their lives.

For this epic post-apocalyptic thriller debut, it had everything you ever could want in this long novel.  We care about Peter, Amy and their friends in this futuristic new world they were in. We learned how Amy had became warped into the passage of the vortex to lead the fight. We all care about the country as a whole with their remaining survivals on the search for peace and justice. For this enjoyable read, you're catapulted into a whole new world in the future from Texas and beyond. Drama, suspense, a hint of romance, intrigue and a lot of mystery was packed into this novel.

Go check it out and get warped into their future.
