I read this and LOVED it. Can't wait for the remaining books to come out. This book did, however, cause me to have horrible dreams. I've never had a book do that before!

After reading this I downloaded the free chapter and got hooked. I couldn't tell you what it is about but the characters and mysteriousness is compelling.

At the beginning they are recruiting death row inmates for some science experiement where they subject their bodies to some virus that kills some and makes others particularly strong and healthy that they are unkillable. They are hinting that they are creating vampires, but I don't really get it yet. I'm very early in the book. There is a little 6 year old girl that they are recruiting now. She goes to the zoo and all the animals go bezerk. I don't know why yet.

See the plot is kind of crazy right now. But it is a page turner...

OK Passage readers. Help!
The first part of the book was fun but when they switched to the colony in the future the plot just fell apart. Tell me it gets better or I'm not going to get through this....

I stopped reading when it changed to the colony


Your ex wanting to be friends is like asking a kidnapper to stay in touch when they let you go.

The type of fierce loyalty that I possess made me incapable of comprehending the level of disloyalty that he possessed

Me too! Loved the first part but when it shifted to the colony I got bored. Missed the FBI agent, I kept seeing him as Tommy Lee Jones, but then they wrote him out I guess.

Put it down, started reading a few other books since.
