See this rather nice copy of The Passage, by Justin Cronin? This exclusive limited-run edition is only available from Waterstones, but it could be yours if you participate in my little competition which I’m running with help from a certain Savidge Reads!
If you didn’t catch all the hoo-hah last year, The Passage is a gripping and epic story about a little girl named Amy who is, unknown to her, integral to the survival of a world about to be wracked by a deadly virus that turns humans into monsters. It had lots of glowing reviews last year including acclaim from Stephen King who who’s comment I have to agree with: “…read this book and the ordinary world disappears”. It is a thoroughly good read and recommended – read my review to find out what I thought.
