Critics Review

  • Enthralling … Read 15 pages, and you will find yourself captivated; read 30 and you will find yourself taken prisoner and reading late into the night. It had the vividness that only epic works of fantasy and imagination can achieve. What else can I say? This: read this book and the ordinary world disappears

    Stephen King
  • 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 future

    GUARDIAN
  • Enthralling … richly imagined. Above all, Amy is a superb creation, believably human yet beguilingly enigmatic

    SUNDAY TIMES
  • If you only take one book away with you this summer, make it The Passage. It’s an absorbing, nightmarish dream of a book, a terrifying apocalyptic thriller, populated by believable, sympathetic characters. Once you start reading it, you won’t want it to end

    THE TIMES
  • Epic, apocalyptic, heart-wrenching, catastrophic, mesmerisizing…

    DAILY MIRROR
  • An exhilarating epic … the breathtaking plot eventually circles back around, and the conclusion will leave you gasping. A modern classic in the making
