Continuing on from The Passage, the virus continues to spread and endanger all those in its path. Lila is a pregnant doctor who hopes the best for her child, Kitteridge has been forced out of his comfort zone and is now on the run… alone. April is running with her little brother trying to show him a calm that does not exist beyond her face. As they run – they towards each other and with connection comes hope.
In the future – Amy alongside the others fight in hopes of saving mankind. The virals are stronger somehow… they have evolved to even more of a force to reckon with and for the Twelve, the future and the past – is at hand.
Flyers. The Passage was a book that blew me away – unique in context (man I had a lot of fun writing that review), I hung on it line after line. Once completed it left me at such a place I wondered what would happen next. When The Twelve arrived I was thrilled to reenter this world of Amy and Virals and trying to make a new world that had passed away…
Flyers. Did I say that already? The Twelve is like The Passage on steroids. It is bigger. Stronger. More powerful. More political. And in that sense, I think I liked it a little less than The Passage, mainly because The Passage was a crisper read – more of an earth gone wrong feel to it, where The Twelve is way deep into a world that is no more. I hope that makes sense.
Still- this series is one I would recommend. In fact if you are looking for good books to hunker down with and go deep this winter, let me recommend these. Word is that The Passage will be a movie, possibly in 2015. I sure hope so.
