We told you that Cemetery Dance was taking orders last week for The Twelve by Justin Cronin the signed limited edition of the sequel to The Passage. The book sold out in record time, but Gauntlet Press was able to get ten copies which they will offer on a first-ordered, first-served basis (domestic customers only as they can’t replace lost or damaged copies).
Description: In his internationally bestselling and critically acclaimed novel The Passage, Justin Cronin constructed an unforgettable world transformed by a government experiment gone horribly wrong.
With The Twelve, the story continues…
In the present day:
As a man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos, desperate to find others, to survive, to witness the dawn on the other side of disaster.
Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, has been so broken by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child’s arrival even as society dissolves around her.
Kittridge, known to the world as “Last Stand in Denver,” has been forced by loss of electrical power to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far.
April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a minefield of death and ruin.
These three will learn that they have not been fully abandoned — and that in connection lies hope, even on the darkest of nights.
One hundred years in the future:
Amy, Peter, Alicia, and the others introduced in The Passage work with a cast of new characters to hunt the original twelve virals. .. unaware that the rules of the game have changed, and that one of them will have to sacrifice everything to bring the Twelve down.
The scope widens and the intensity deepens as the epic tale of sacrifice and survival begun in The Passage surges forward in this breathtaking sequel.
