Recommended for: fans of The Passage series

And so it's come to an end. What began as a horrifying viral vampire apocalypse story has evolved and resolved into a story ultimately about family bonds, humanity, survival and spirituality. I can definitely say that I'd no idea this was the destination when I began The Passage. When this turn from vampire horror began in The Twelve, I was initially disappointed but now I have to admit that having read the complete story, I am very much satisfied. All the characters I grew to care about had what I felt were satisfying ends and they reached a peace that was long earned & oft long deferred. It was nice to have followed the lives of these characters and I also enjoyed reading about Zero, Timothy Fanning. His recitation was so long and so very Lestat-like (Interview With the Vampire) that I occasionally forgot that I was reading a book in the Passage series.

Definitely recommended for fans of the series. Finish this one.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
