Staff Reviews


When Stephen King announced his "retirement" there was no one to take over. There are excellent writers of psychological terror and excellent writers of horror, but Stephen King writes a fine line and balance between the two. Now there is someone to fill the shoes of King—Justin Cronin can walk that line and make us cry, but quietly so nothing in the night can hear us! The "Heir to the Throne" has been found!

“Justin Cronin's incredible imagination takes the reader on a ride that is engrossing, thought-provoking, terrifying and above all, immensely entertaining. A diverse and engaging cast of characters dot the landscape in this sweeping novel that is both fantastical science fiction and heartbreaking drama. An absolutely thrilling read, The Passage is destined to reach a huge audience and leave everyone wanting more.”
— Tiffany Miner, Book People, Austin, TX
