The Twelve was a rewarding, entertaining and engrossing read for me. I really enjoyed this second installment to The Passage Trilogy. It was even better for me as I read The Passage and The Twelve so close together. Allowing me to bond even more with these well liked, complex characters and allowing me to engage deeper into their tense and terrifying world of survival.
I loved how Justin Cronin linked the past with the present, which added more depth to the story as we were able to see how the characters evolved and came together as they battled new and old enemies and fought to save mankind.
I highly recommend reading this trilogy close together. I am looking forward to reading The City of Mirrors real soon.
