The vicious, limb-tearing “virals” of Justin Cronin’s 2010 post-apocalyptic vampire epic The Passage have captivated readers, the publishing world, and Hollywood. A best-seller upon publication, The Passage, along with the two forthcoming books in the proposed trilogy, was optioned for film by Ridley Scott’s production company for $1.75 million.
The Twelve, Cronin’s follow-up to The Passage, will be hitting shelves and e-books on Oct. 16.
Entertainment Weekly also acquired a brand new excerpt from The Twelve, which fans can read in the issue hitting stands tomorrow.
