Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Best 100 Books of 2012
Amazon.ca - Best 100 Books of 2012

"Cronin is the thinking man's horror writer. Think of an amalgamation of Stephen King (horror writing) Dean Koontz (character genius) Tom Clancy (military language, etc.) and Anne Rice (vampire creepers) with a flare all his splendorific own-and you might be able to pinpoint Cronin's gift."
-Daily Herald

Praise for The Passage
"[A] magnificent beast of a new novel."
-TIME

"A blockbuster . . . astutely plotted and imaginative."
-The New York Times Book Review

"Cronin''s unguessable plot and appealing characters will seize your heart and mind."
-Parade

"Great storytelling . . . vital, tender and compelling."
-O, The Oprah Magazine

"Addictive, terrifying and deeply satisfying. Not only is this one of the year''s best thrillers; it''s one of the best of the past decade--maybe one of the best ever."
-Men''s Journal
