Since I had some time to read during my vacation, I decided to borrow The Passage from a friend and it was excellent! It’s a story about a government experiment gone wrong and I heard that the this is going to be the first in a trilogy.

I won’t give too much away, but I really liked how Cronin took a legend and integrated most of it without revealing too much too early in the book. I was able to guess what the turning point was fairly early on, but it was still a great read.

It was especially fun to read because I was reading about the places (California, Vegas) it is set in while I was driving through them! If he comes out with a second book, I’m pre-ordering it!

NOTE: I was in no way asked, solicted or paid to write this review.
