I recently finished reading The Passage by Justin Cronin. It is a bit of a time-sucker because it is quite long and ridiculously intriguing. Before you might write this book off as yet another profit-seeker so common now to the vampire fiction genre let me reassure you that you don’t have to be a vamp fan to enjoy this book. Instead, think of The Passage as a sprawling epic account of a virus that turns the North American continent into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The stories of a young girl, death row inmates, federal agents, and a lone colony interweave to create a genuinely great start to a new trilogy by Justin Cronin. Highly recommended mix of literary fiction and the supernatural.
