The Time Will Come #4

The Time Will Come is a meme hosted by Jodie over at Books for Company. I keep wanting to call this This Too Shall Pass, but alas, that is not the name, but the concept is the same. These are books that I really want to read but just haven't gotten around to.

I'm a zombie hooker and we all know it. This book is also about zombies and I didn't even know it until my mother was raving about how there was a sequel coming out and how much she loved it and she wanted to read the next one.  She told me about it then thrust the 765 page ARC into my hands. I looked into it more and then I got super excited. Who doesn't love a government experiment gone wrong that turns all of the taxpayers into mindless flesh eating zombies!? (Political commentary anyone?) 

Either way, this book will be waiting for a LONG time since I just don't have time to read a book that long. I figure also since there are at least 2 more books slated to come out, then I can wait at least that long since I don't want to read the books and then forget everything that happens in between them. Silly series.

Here is the Goodreads synopses:

“It happened fast. Thirty-two minutes for one world to die, another to be born.”

First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he’s done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey—spanning miles and decades—towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.

With The Passage, award-winning author Justin Cronin has written both a relentlessly suspenseful adventure and an epic chronicle of human endurance in the face of unprecedented catastrophe and unimaginable danger. Its inventive storytelling, masterful prose, and depth of human insight mark it as a crucial and transcendent work of modern fiction.

If only if only.
