The City of Mirrors

A Novel (Book Three of The Passage Trilogy)

Publisher: Anchor Canada
The wait is finally over for the third and final installment in The Passage trilogy, called "a The Stand-meets-The Road journey" by Entertainment Weekly.

In the wake of the battle against The Twelve, Amy and her friends have gone in different directions. Peter has joined the settlement at Kerrville, Texas, ascending in its ranks despite his ambivalence about its ideals. Alicia has ventured into enemy territory, half-mad and on the hunt for the viral called Zero, who speaks to her in dreams. Amy has vanished without a trace.
     With The Twelve destroyed, the citizens of Kerrville are moving on with life, settling outside the city limits, certain that at last the world is safe enough. But the gates of Kerrville will soon shudder with the greatest threat humanity has ever faced, and Amy--the Girl from Nowhere, the One Who Walked In, the First and Last and Only, who lived a thousand years--will once more join her friends to face down the demon who has torn their world apart . . . and to at last confront their destinies.


A New York Times Bestseller

"Compulsively readable. . . . A mystical finale that is both manipulative and strangely moving." —The New York Times 

"Justin Cronin's Passage trilogy is remarkable for the unremitting drive of its narrative, for the breathtaking sweep of its imagined future and for the clear lucidity of its language. The City of Mirrors is a thrilling finale to a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction." —Stephen King

"A stunning achievement by virtually every measure. . . . Readers are in the hands of a master storyteller with the strengths of a literary writer. . . . The plot is tuned to precision, tightly controlled and rich in cross-references. Cronin's characters are lavishly drawn and powerfully relatable. . . . The City of Mirrors is a masterpiece, the crowning touch on what is, I believe, destined to become a touchstone of modern fantasy and horror." —National Post 

"It's all deliciously exciting." —The Washington Post

"Superb. . . . This conclusion to bestseller Cronin's apocalyptic thriller trilogy ends with all of the heartbreak, joy and unexpected twists of fate that events in The Passage and The Twelve foreordained." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Readers who have been patiently awaiting the conclusion to Cronin's sweeping postapocalyptic trilogy are richly rewarded with this epic, heart-wrenching novel. . . . Not only does this title bring the series to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion, but it also exhibits Cronin's moving exploration of love as both a destructive force and an elemental need, elevating this work among its dystopian peers." —Library Journal, starred review

"Don't let years-long vampire fatigue keep you from this epic, post-apocalyptic tale of blood-suckers: You won't regret getting, er, sucked in." —Entertainment Weekly

"A fantastic story. . . . The final book in a blockbuster trilogy." —Houston Chronicle

"The City of Mirrors is poetry. . . . The writing is sumptuous, the language lovely, even when the action itself is dark and violent. . . . This may appear to be genre fiction, but it's literature." —January Magazine
