it was amazing

I was fortunate enough to receive an advance readers copy of The Twelve, by Justin Cronin. It's a follow-up to one of the better novels I've read in the last few years -- The Passage -- and it's to be published later this fall. Best of all, The Twelve was just as good as the first. It was well-written with page turning excitement -- i.e. it's literary fiction disguised commercial fiction -- and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great story. I read it in two sittings. It's nothing like the kind of novels I write -- it's a bit about the "end of the world" with vampires thrown in (or Virals, as they're called in the novel), but it's so well done it transcends the genre.
