The Twelve by Justin Cronin is out Today!

Last year I reviewed The Passage, the first book in Justin Cronin’s end-of-the-world, vampire trilogy.

Today, the long-awaited (by me and many others) sequel is out.  The TwelveI’ll be heading out to buy it after work.

Who’s with me?

    I’m eager to read it, but here’s what I’ve been thinking about–and maybe you have insight. It’s been quite a while since I read The Passage. And I’ve read lots of books since, some in the same genre. My memory ain’t what it used to be. The only things I can think of are that I really liked it, there’s some little girl at an orphanage and “Patient Zero.” Do you think there will be a merciful recap of sorts? (This is the first time I’m getting into a series that doesn’t have all the books published already.) Or would you recommend brushing up on Passage reviews as a shortcut? (Re-reading is out of the question). Either way, hope this one is as good as the first.

      Seriously, I’m in the same boat, and The Passage was like 800 pages long. I remember glowing vampires, the little girl, then it switched to the future, and…I think that’s about it.

      I might brush up on a quick plot synopsis on Wikipedia, but that’s it.
