I had read several mixed reviews of the book and was a little disappointed to think that it might not live up to The Passage, which was incredible. Thankfully, this book did not disappoint. I wasn't happy with how everything turned out, but I can see why Cronin wrote things the way he did, and there were a few unanswered questions, but then why not, since there's a third part to the story coming. Overall, it was captivating, I couldn't wait to read more. The worst part for me was how so many of the characters started sentences "Probably...", but that might have been my only complaint with The Passage as well. ( )

Decent. Cronin is a good writer and the book was fairly interesting and built up to a decently exciting finale. It was also a bit predictable with some creakily convenient plot maneuvers/coincidences. Cronin seemed to be straining to elicit every ounce of emotional response and it didn't quite do it for me, even though the characters are well drawn. Some characters were dropped from the narrative unceremoniously, though I guess they may reappear in the third book. I'm on board for the third one, which I guess is the only real job of the middle book in a trilogy. I do wish it would have been as good as its predecessor. ( )

Maybe it is because I just finished watching the latest episode of the Walking Dead but this book just didn't grab me as much as the first book in the series--the Passage. The first in the series I had a hard time putting down the summer I read it. This one I felt compelled to finish so I can read the next one. But who doesn't love a dystopian future where humans are on the run from a vampire plague? At least these vampires aren't sparkly. ( )

Fun read. ( )

FEB, 2013:
I didn't hate The Passage, but I didn't think it lived up to the hype. The Twelve, I'm happy to report, enriches and improves on the story. Lots more character development, a surer hand in the writing. Still could have been much shorter, but overall, a vast improvement over the first book. Looking forward to the last one now.

SECOND READ THROUGH, THREE YEARS LATER:
I enjoyed this reading far more thoroughly this time around than I did the first time. There was more of a story arc, and character arcs. It was also interesting to come back around to characters from book one that you didn't expect to see again. Originally, I ranked this as three stars. I've bumped that to four this time around. ( )

She stood beside me for years, or was it a moment? I cannot remember. Maybe I loved her, maybe I didn’t. There was a house, and then no house. There were trees, but none remain. When no one remembers, what is there? You, whose moments are gone, who drift like smoke in the afterlife, tell me something, tell me anything. - Mark Strand, "In the Afterlife"

Watch the clock. Know the location of the nearest hardbox.  When in doubt, run.
Hence the major problem with immortality, apart from the peculiar diet: everything began to bore you.
Give people hope, and you could make them do just about anything. And not just your average, everyday kind of hope--for food or clothes or the absence of pain or good suburban schools or low down payments with easy financing. What people needed was a hope beyond the visible world, the world of the body and its trials, of life's endless dull parade of things. A hope that all was not as it appeared.
They became their enemy, as all must do; they ceased to be slaves, and so became alive.
"Because that's what heaven is," said Amy. "It's opening the door of a house in twilight and everyone you love is there."
