Cronin’s massive novel transcends its clichés and delivers a feverishly readable post-apocalyptic-cum-vampire chiller. It’s not only a brilliantly told story, with thrilling plot twists and graphic action sequences, but a moving psychological portrait of survivors facing up to the poignant fact of a lost past and a horrifically uncertain futureGUARDIAN
