The Twelve Reviews
"Although the twisting plot is often convoluted, Cronin writes scenes of palpably growing terror and manages to keep up intense pacing and characterization. Passage fans will be clamoring for this one." - Booklist
"Bestseller Cronin's bloated apocalyptic thriller, like many a trilogy's middle book, falls short of the high standard set by its predecessor, 2010's The Passage." - Publishers Weekly
"Cronin serves up a largely predictable high-concept blend of The Alamo and The Andromeda Strain, but his yarn has many virtues: It's very well-paced ...it's very well-written, far more so than most apocalypse novels, and that excuses any number of sins. And it's always a pleasure to see strong women go storming around as the new sheriffs in town in a world gone bad, even if they're sometimes compelled to drink blood to get their work done. A viral spaghetti Western; it's not Sergio Leone - or, for that matter, Michael Crichton - but it's a satisfying confection." - Kirkus
