Publisher Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “A thrilling finale to a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction.”—Stephen King

You followed The Passage. You faced The Twelve. Now enter The City of Mirrors for the final reckoning. As the bestselling epic races to its breathtaking finale, Justin Cronin’s band of hardened survivors await the second coming of unspeakable darkness.

The world we knew is gone. What world will rise in its place?

The Twelve have been destroyed and the terrifying 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.

Look for the entire Passage trilogy:

THE PASSAGE | THE TWELVE | THE CITY OF MIRRORS

Praise for The City of Mirrors



“Compulsively readable.”—The New York Times Book Review

“The City of Mirrors is poetry. Thrilling in every way it has to be, but poetry just the same . . . The writing is sumptuous, the language lovely, even when the action itself is dark and violent.”—The Huffington Post

“This really is the big event you’ve been waiting for . . .  A true last stand that builds and comes with a bloody, roaring payoff you won’t see coming, then builds again to the big face off you’ve been waiting for.”—NPR

“A masterpiece . . .  with The City of Mirrors, the third volume in The Passage trilogy, Justin Cronin puts paid to what may well be the finest post-apocalyptic epic in our dystopian-glutted times. A stunning achievement by virtually every measure.”—The National Post



“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.”—Stephen King

Quotes

  • 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)   Praise for The Passage  
  • Magnificent . . . Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them. . . . The Passage can stand proudly next to Stephen King’s apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.

  • “A true last stand that builds and comes with a bloody, roaring payoff you won’t see coming, then buildsagain to the big face off you’ve been waiting for.”

    - NPR
  • “Cronin skillfully manages a large cast of characters, all of whom he has endowed with fully developed personalities that engage the reader emotionally. Although its plot is understandably heavily dependent on events in the first two books, this novel is a superb capstone to a modern horror thriller epic.”

    - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “Cronin’s long-awaited finale to his epic post-apocalyptic trilogy is an edgy, page-turning fantastical tour de force. His world, displayed through brilliant, dystopic-tinted narrative lenses, is frighteningly familiar, mercilessly exhibiting the ingenuity, tenacity, and brutality of man. With love as his polestar, his humanization of Fanning/Zero and the masterful end are but a few things that make this an incredible, one-of-a-kind future classic.”

    - RT Book Reviews (5 Gold Stars, Top Pick!)
  • “This book plays to a number of Scott Brick’s strengths as a narrator—especially his prodigious ability to deliver detailed exposition as skillfully as he does fast-paced dialogue and action. He’s also expert at portraying the emotions of characters. As Fanning (Patient Zero) tells the story of how he was infected as a viral, Brick controls the suspense masterfully.”
