The Twelve is a 2012 horror novel by Justin Cronin and is the second novel in The Passage trilogy, following the novel The Passage. The Twelve was published on October 16, 2012 by Ballantine Books. The trilogy will be concluded with the publishing of The City of Mirrors, which is due to be released 2014. The Twelve has been optioned by director Ridley Scott along with the other two books in the trilogy for a planned series of film adaptations.

Synopsis

At the end of The Passage, the great viral plague had left a small group of survivors clinging to life amidst a world transformed into a nightmare. In the second volume of this epic trilogy, this same group of survivors, led by the mysterious, charismatic Amy, go on the attack, leading an insurrection against the virals: the first offensives of the Second Viral War.

To do this, they must infiltrate a dozen hives, each presided over by one of the original Twelve. Their secret weapon: Alicia, transformed at the end of book one into a half human, half viral—but whose side, in the end, is she really on

Reception

Early reception for the The Twelve has been mostly positive, with Kirkus Reviews praising the book. BookPage wrote that the ending to The Twelve was more satisfying than that of The Passage, but that “there are plenty of loose threads to keep readers eager for book three”. Suvudu listed the book as one of its “Best Bets for 2012″.
