Cravings #9: The Passage by Justin Cronin

"Book Cravings are  books that I really want to have but can't buy them for now.  Reasons may vary on not having the money to purchase it and sometimes coz it's not available locally. I will post my book cravings every week and tell something about that particular book."
I've learned about The Passage while I was browsing the website of  Terry Brooks ( love him and his books) and looking for current news to read regarding his latest releases. I do know that Terry doesn't review books often and I don't know why he has done this but I think he just want to share his views and opinions regarding a remarkable novel. I searched the synopsis of The Passage and I must admit that it caught my interest. It's now available in paperback here in the Philippines but I still need to save money to buy City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare. Well, you can't have them all right? Good thing I created Book Cravings, at least it'll remind me of the books that I really want and that someday I'll be able to buy them. :-)

First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse. As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he’s done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey—spanning miles and decades—towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.
