Book Club Friday: The Passage

I read this book a while ago, but as Book 2 in the trilogy was released this week, I thought it was time for a review of the first one.

According to
An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy—abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Brad Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape—but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.

My Review
I loved this book.  Yes, (small spoiler alert), it has vampires in it, but this is not a True Blood/Twilight vampires can be good tale.  This is a 'it could kinda happen, holy cr*p' kind of a tale.  I wasn't sure what to expect when I started it, but once I did I could not put it down.  Two nights in a row I was up until 2am reading and then for another 30 minutes while I convinced myself it was a book and no one would be coming to get me while I slept.

I know this review was kind of vague, but I don't want to give away any spoilers!  I am waiting to get Book 2 from the library and can't wait to dig in.

Anyone else read The Passage?  Thoughts for book 2?  Hit the comments!

  1. I started The Passage last year and then had no time to read for 2 monthsso I stopped, but the 150 or so pages I got thru were very interesting - I need to pick it back up! Especially now that the sequel is out!
