In The Passage and The Twelve, Justin Cronin brilliantly imagined the fall of civilization and humanity's desperate fight to survive. Now all is quiet on the horizon--but does silence promise the nightmare's end or the second coming of unspeakable darkness? At last, this bestselling epic races to its breathtaking finale.The world we knew is gone. What world will rise in its place?The Twelve have been destroyed and the hundred-year reign of darkness that descended upon the world has ended. The survivors are stepping outside their walls, determined to build society anew--and daring to dream of a hopeful future.But far from them, in a dead metropolis, he waits: Zero. The First. Father of the Twelve. The anguish that shattered his human life haunts him, and the hatred spawned by his transformation burns bright. His fury will be quenched only when he destroys Amy--humanity's only hope, the Girl from Nowhere who grew up to rise against him.One last time light and dark will clash, and at last Amy and her friends will know their fate.

"Post-apocalyptic vampire story" doesn't do justice to Justin Cronin's series. It is that, but so much more - and The City of Mirrors is a satisfying conclusion to the saga. Like its predecessors, it challenges the reader to follow a large cast of characters in multiple time periods. Before you start this one, make sure you're up on what happened in the previous books. If it's been a while since you read The Twelve - it was for me - refreshing your memory with one of the synopses available online is a great way to catch up. You won't want to miss a beat as you follow these characters to their final destinations. Cronin is a literary master, and this third chapter contains some of the most lyrical, beautifully written scenes of the series. A fitting finish to a great achievement in modern fiction. Special shoutout to Scott Brick, who has to be one of the best audiobook narrators out there - his tender yet strong voice and impressive emotional range really bring the drama alive.
