The Twelve (The Passage, #2) By Justin Cronin

Dear Justin We get the religious reference Really, we do But thanks for providing a summation of The Passage in a handy Biblical format at the beginning of The Twelve I only partially appreciated it, however, as it reminded me of the things I found annoying about The Passage, particularly the...
