The Twelve delivers an excellent follow up to The Passage as the author takes us back into a viral plagued world. This book reminds me of a wave as each story arc rises and crashed upon the narrative shore. As this might suggest there is a lot going on in this book but Cronin pulls all this into a solid read.
The world created in this book is like no other I have read. Mix this the excellent plot and character development and you have the recipe for a great story. In this humble reviewers opinion this series is destined to take its place next to other literary giants like Lord of the Rings. Now all I have to do is wait patiently for the next instalment.
