Book #38 of the 50 Book Challenge....
An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy–abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl—and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape—but he can’t stop society’s collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.
5 out of 5 stars. The next book doesn't come out until next year and I'm dying already. Great book. I can't belevie that I read this book in just 10 days. It's a huge book, over 700 pages. But I guess when you take a sick day from work and just stay home reading all day you can get pretty far in a good book. I'm putting the sequal on my list for when it comes out next year.
