"It happened fast. Thirty-two minutes for one world to die, another to be born."

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.

Praise for The Passage:

"[A] blockbuster." — The New York Times Book Review

"Mythic storytelling." — San Francisco Chronicle

"Magnificent... Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them... The Passage can stand proudly next to Stephen King’s apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy’s The Road: a story about human beings trying to generate new hope in a world from which all hope has long since been burnt." — Time

"The type of big, engrossing read that will have you leaving the lights on late into the night." — The Dallas Morning News

"Addictive." — Men’s Journal

"Cronin’s unguessable plot and appealing characters will seize your heart and mind." — Parade

[A] blockbuster. --The New York Times Book Review Mythic storytelling. --San Francisco Chronicle Magnificent . . . Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them. . . . The Passage can stand proudly next to Stephen King's apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy's The Road: a story about human beings trying to generate new hope in a world from which all hope has long since been burnt. --Time The type of big, engrossing read that will have you leaving the lights on late into the night. --The Dallas Morning News Addictive. --Men's Journal Cronin's unguessable plot and appealing characters will seize your heart and mind. --Parade Cronin has given us what could be the best book of the summer. Don't wait to dive into The Passage. --USA Today Great storytelling . . . vital, tender, and compelling. --O: The Oprah Magazine Cronin gets it just right; the combination of attentive realism and doomsday stakes makes for a mesmerizing experience. --Salon Magnificently unnerving . . . A The Stand-meets-The Road journey. --Entertainment Weekly Imagine Michael Crichton crossbreeding Stephen King's The Stand and Salem's Lot in that lab on Jurassic Park, with rich infusions of Robert McCammon's Swan Song, Battlestar Galactica and even Cormac McCarthy's The Road. --The Washington Post
