The Passage by Justin Cronin

The Passage by Justin Cronin is 766 pages of pure story telling. Set right before the fall of mankind and then finally in a post-apocalyptic US, this story is about survival against man and its creation. A new spin on vampirism, The Passage is a breath of fresh air which stays away from the dime-store novella of typical blood and fangs.
Set 100 years into the future, this story follows the lives of a Colony and the verge of its defeat from the Dracs that hunt the remaining survivors. With little left in resources, a band of ordinary citizens and a mysterious child venture outside of the security of the walls to find other survivors.
Excellent read and hard to put down, The Passage is a great purchase.  Highly recommended and a definite keeper for your personal library.  This is a book you can revisit time and time again to reread a journey that will continue to surprise you with every turn of the page.
