I also couldn't quite believe that it made him into the monster he became either. And for those reasons I must give this final installment 3 stars, but it is still a worthwhile read so far if you aren't daunted by the sheer number of pages in this series.

If there was a theme, or a message, then what was it? Cronin's writing really did make me think about it. I knew exactly what it was in this final book: Love.
More specifically, love is a necessary thing for us humans. It is needed. Without it, who are we, and what was the purpose of our life?
I saw it with each main character here, mo As I neared the end of The City of Mirrors, which is also the end of the trilogy, I started thinking about the point of this big story.
I saw it with each main character here, most especially in their last moments, even the bad guy. Isn't that a totally unexpected thing to see in an apocalyptic trilogy about vampire-like beings The term used here is Virals, and a much better one because this really is not a vampire story bringing mankind to the brink of extinction?
I thought so, and am grateful for it. The other affecting message words I found throughout the series were Survival and Family. We humans are survivalists, but if we're going to go on, we need those most important of reasons to do so.
Without these inherent story themes, I would have cried boredom after pages and actually did during the middle of this one, at least in part.
Cronin does a good job of avoiding too much of the fighting virals, but it's still there, and after three books this can become repetitive.
Trilogy wrap-up: Best part s of Book 1 The Passage for me: The early outbreak and spread of the contagion. I remember being on the edge of my seat.
Also, the getting to know Amy and her plight during childhood. A girl alone in the world is some strong stuff to read about. Possibly, it was the going back to the beginning of the plague here.
It was a good book, but I'll probably remember it least of the three. Following Fanning through college, which leads to this personal and heart-breaking love story is a fine piece of writing.
I could not have guessed a portion which begins so simply, and is almost separate from the rest of the book, could grab hold like it did.
More of that any day. Sure made a lot of mistakes typing this way City of Mirrors is going to be an incredibly hard book to review with any sense of professionalism, such was its impact and indeed the impact of this entire trilogy on me as a reader.
I have loved every moment of it, the writing is truly sublime, the epic and sprawling story utterly convincing and completely addictive every step of the way and probably the most important thing to say is that if you are a fan and have been worried that Justin Cronin could not POSSIBLY pull off a perfect and kille City of Mirrors is going to be an incredibly hard book to review with any sense of professionalism, such was its impact and indeed the impact of this entire trilogy on me as a reader.

The man is a genius. And he made me cry. Trauma I tell you! Book trauma of the best kind. These are the reads we live for.
Lets go back a little…because Something is coming But also beautiful, intriguing, extraordinarily clever and a book that rewarded readers in surprising and unexpected ways.
The Passage on its own was epic. A truly remarkable achievement. Not everyone loved it. I had endless discussions with other readers of this trilogy about how The Twelve took us away from the Passage rather than moving it on, changed things too much — but for me it worked on every level.
Much more than. To my mind The Twelve had a gorgeous sense of anticipation to it. That is the best way I can put it. Again, no real detail.
You must, simply MUST read these for yourself. Also in defence of The Twelve, to those who were not sure of it, I think that if you reread it in its place, after The Passage, before City of Mirrors it will take on an entirely different sense and an entirely different vibe.
I refer you back to Justin Cronin being a genius. Now…Its time. And here we are now then. Its time. The City of Mirrors completes this story, we will have to say goodbye to Amy and Sarah and Peter and Alicia and oh all of them too many to mention, including every one of The Twelve,those stunningly layered and well drawn characters who have captured our imagination, made us root for them, had us holding our breath, or hiding under the duvet or upon reading a particuarly thrilling moment clutching our heads in dismay and concern.
The relationships created and lost, the world they live in an ever changing landscape, so intimately imagined you live there with them, time lost, time gained, the whole wonderful, creative, genuinely absorbing, intensely insane reading MADNESS of it, it is done.
And done in such a way that you will absolutely never forget it. This trilogy I will read again, start to finish, many times. Many many times.
Be prepared. Expect the unexpected. It will still surprise you. Everything you have read before within this story you will look at very differently when you have finished City of Mirrors.
I cannot imagine that it could be better. Every chronically impatient moment of it. Ok so I havent been that practical.
Not for one moment. And Died in it. Then lived in it once more. Every page. Every word. That is what reading is about.
Isnt it? Do I need to say Highly Recommended? You know the score. Justin Cronin I thank you. And as for Amy, the Girl from Nowhere — I have no words.

This is because the story essentially culminated at the end of the last one, with the destruction of The Twelve and the disappearance of Amy.
Therefore I was quite curious to see what type of rabbit Cronin would pull out of the hat with the conclusion. Some of it is predictable, such as revisiting earlier events — a particular standout set-piece It is fitting that Justin Cronin calls it The City of Mirrors , for the concluding volume of The Passage trilogy is very much an act of smoke and mirrors.
Some of it is predictable, such as revisiting earlier events — a particular standout set-piece in this regard is the back story of Zero and the discovery of the virus.
Now that is a true sequel. What I particularly liked is how Cronin broadens both his vision and story here, to answer two particular questions nagging readers since book one: what happened to the rest of America, and indeed the rest of the world?
The answers are unexpected and thrilling, culminating in both a nail-biting ending and an elegiac coda that provides an extraordinary meditation on the meaning of love and history.
Apr 16, Debra rated it really liked it Shelves: netgalley. Received from Netgalley and the publishers in exchange for an honest review.
She was one of Twelve and also the other, the one above and behind, the Zero. She was Amy. A lot of time Received from Netgalley and the publishers in exchange for an honest review.
A lot of time has passed, and so it was with this book too - a lot of time has passed. I believe 20 years for the characters.
They have aged, their children have aged and so the story begins with them at this stage of their lives. Virals have not been seen for a long time but that does not mean they have been forgotten.
Survivors have gotten on with their lives. Some content to go one with their lives believing the worst was behind them and some moving on but always watching for signs of a return.
A return, that once it came, would come full force. The Passage grabbed me from the get go. It was an emotional page turner for me.
I could not read it fast enough. Once finished, as usual, I was angry I read it so fast. I waited and waited and waited for the next in the series to come out.
Then The Twelve came out. I didn't love it as much as The Passage, but I still thought it was very good. We learned more about The Twelve fitting since that was the title and although not a page turner for me, it drew me in and kept me wanting more.
Then the waiting began for the last in the series to come out. When I got the confirmation email from Netgalley that I was chosen, I am not ashamed to say I got very, very excited.
I may have ever yelled out "Yes! I really appreciated the beginning with the notes on who was who. It was a nice refresher as some time had gone by between books.
But then I found myself reading other books while reading this in the beginning. Because this book starts off SLOW. Very Slow for me. Finally when I started getting into this book, the background on Fanning began.
I know some readers feel this part would have been better told as a novella. I wish Fanning's story would have been told at the beginning of this book, before we are re-introduced to all of the characters I have grown to love.
Fanning's story is necessary. It shows him as a person, a young man who feels he is given the shaft by his father as he goes away to Harvard where he meets Jonas Lear and Liz.
All characters are likable. I liked young Fanning. His story is tragic and one can't help but feel sorry for him.
His back story is important. How does a normal guy turn into a monster? I just wish it was better placed in the book.
After Fanning's background story, the "Story" of the characters began. This is where the story picked up for me and I put the other books away, Cronin had grasped my attention once again.
How to rate without re-telling the entire story?? That is always the question for me. I will say I loved the farmstead story of Peter and Amy. I love that Peter went there every night.
I loved their connection. I loved seeing the characters again. Then there is Caleb and Pim. They have a great story line as well.
All nice touches. Cronin was very true to his characters and saw them through to the end. Four people to face fanning and his Virals. What would happen?
This was a great way to end - heart pounding action. Who would live who would die? Love was being known.
In the end, Amy and Peter on the farmstead yet again. We see Carter get his "ever after", hell even Fanning is reunited with Liz.
I would have loved for the last lines of the book to be Amy playing piano with Peter standing behind her, hands on her shoulders.
Fan-fiction on my behalf I am sure. I think Cronin did a great job ending his series. A great dystopian series that is also a love story.
Cronin stayed true to his characters and gave his readers a great ending. I shed some tears along the way. We see characters we know die, some live, some change, but the story is always good.
Slow in the beginning but stay with this book. See it through, Keep reading,it is well worth it. Cronin has never disappointed and he does not disappoint here.
He is a gifted and beautiful writer. His talent shines as a city of mirrors would shine - brightly. Having finished this series, I want to go back and re-read it all over again.
I can't say that for many series or books, but this one's a keeper. See more of my reviews at www.

I'm seriously, they are so stupid, they deserve it. I am so fucking done with this series and this mother fucking male author. I know this mother fucker person is most likely pro-life but I'm sorry, a woman loving her rapist's baby is so crossing the fucking line.
How insulting can this get? Nap I'm seriously, they didn't even try. I'm so done. I guess Cronin's daughter should have written a story about a girl saving the world herself instead of relying on her old man!
Motto: Like most things in life, womenfolks should depend on themselves to get the job done instead of waiting for the menfolks to do the hard labor for them.
Mind you, he talks at great length about a bunch of city life details e. And I worked up to a real rage fit when I read to the part that Zero decided every single human on Earth should die just because his sort-of girlfriend winded up dead due to illness!
Fuck off you bastard! Countless people lost the love of their lives one way or the other but none of them become so selfish and fucked up that he would doom the entire human race!
The ending Not to mention, people from Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and Southern America just aren't special or smart enough to have their own survivors.
Final words: I don't mean to say this book is all-bad, at the very least it is entirely readable and entertaining as long as you can swallow all your disbelief.

Last night our power was out for routine maintenance, so from 10 pm I sat with a tiny torch and committed to reading the final pages -- for all my intentions of making it last, I just needed to know what happened!
After about an hour I switched to the torch that is built into my phone. Candlelight would been more aesthetically pleasing, but I worked with what I had.
At 1am the power returned and I was closing in on the end. I read at a slower pace than usual because so much was happening- sometimes I had to take breaks and have a little cry before carrying on!
Actually not sometimes - frequently! And then I was done. And I miss the books already. I think the entire trilogy was perfect. I won't detail plot, since it's the third book and I wouldn't want to spoil anything for those who haven't read the first two.
All I feel comfortable saying is that I love Amy so much! And Alicia. And Peter. I truly love them all.
I could list everyone but I won't! This was such an epic story that I absolutely adored. I look forward to rereading it in the future.
View all 5 comments. I think Cronin lost my interest. I don't really want to go back and reread. It's just been way too long. I can't even. It's LATE too.
It's only days away!!! Ready to see some Vamps eat it It's and a date should be set for release, like, now! Jun 02, Ferdy rated it it was ok Shelves: wtf , vampires , too-fucking-long , boring , ugh , kill-me , wtfery , post-apocalyptic , apocalypse.
So much for the author saying he wanted to write a story about a girl saving the world because he completely missed the mark with Amy. The other female characters weren't much better, they were all useless or insufferable.
What happened to Alicia's character? Her only purpose was to give birth and listen to the bad guy's back story and that was it. Even when she had loads of information about Fannin 1.
What a waste of a decent character. Not being able to be with his kind of girlfriend wasn't a good enough excuse to commit genocide, even worse than that after committing genocide he acted like he was hard done by.
His backstory wasn't tragic as much as the author wanted us to believe it was , it was pathetic, and compared to most people's tragedies his was nothing, he lived a charmed life in comparison.
Even Alicia who went through real trauma felt sorry for him and his silly problems. So yea, I wasn't buying into his oh so tragic life or the utterly lame reason for his maniacal ways.
Also, Fanning's 'love' for his college girlfriend of sorts couldn't have been all that epic when he was happily shagging around with students half his age.
Why didn't Michael or Greer warn everyone about the virals not being gone from the world? They had twenty years to do it. If they had warned people they could have been more careful and prepared, way more people could have survived if they'd been given warning.
Why in the bloody fuck did Fanning getting a happy ending? He was responsible for destroying the world and killing billions all because he couldn't handle his moronic love life.
Him getting to be all loving and happy at the end with his girlfriend was ridiculous. Peter was the ultimate Gary Stu, literally every character loved him, no matter what he did.
Even when he came up with the stupid, suicidal plan at the end that resulted in most of the population dying he was still beloved by all.
Most annoying was how holier than thou and self righteous he was, especially with Alicia, she should have told him how terrible he was but instead she like everyone else just sucked up to him.
I still wasn't buying the crappy love story with Peter and Amy. Peter's constant whining about how much he missed and loved Amy was as dumb as Fanning's whining about his true love, as Peter was also happily shagging around and developing feelings for other women.
For so much of the story to be based upon the two supposedly poignant epic love stories they could have at least had the male characters be faithful, maybe then the so called huge feelings they had would be that little bit more convincing.
How convenient that Peter's crappy decision making led to about or so people surviving when Michael's life saving boat could only hold about people.
Worked out perfectly. What was with the mystical powers that random characters got? Pim and Greer with their visions of the future, and Peter transporting to another place in his dreams?
I can't recall any of the human characters before being able to do things like that. As if only a few Americans survived the end of world, the rest of the world apparently wasn't clever enough or special enough or lucky enough to have their own survivors.
Yea, right. She forces herself out of her stupor and decides to hunt down Zero. Michael Fisher sails around the continent looking for the storied mines that were placed to keep the viral contamination at bay.
He learns the virus has spread to the rest of the world, and realizes that the mines do not exist, and neither does the rest of the world; human civilization was completely wiped out by a mutated version of the virus.
He finds an ocean liner beached in the Gulf of Mexico, and determines to fix it and sail to a safe island to save some portion of humanity. Lucius Greer has been keeping Amy and Carter alive in the cargo hold of their own ship by bringing them blood to feed on.
Amy has no control over herself as a viral while Carter seems to be able to control his impulses. In his dreams, he lives with a human Amy, though he has not actually seen her in years.
Alicia finds Zero in New York City, but learns he is her infector, thus she can not kill him. He befriends her and reveals he was originally Tim Fanning, who had a crush on Jonas Lear's girlfriend Liz during college.
Later in life, when Jonas' science pulled him away from home in search of a cure for Liz's cancer, Liz and Tim had a brief tryst, though she turned down his request to stay with him.
The rest of his story is chronicled in the beginning of The Passage where Tim becomes the only one to survive infection, and thus becomes the first viral; Subject Zero.
He reveals how almost drowning was what reverted him to human form, but retains everything else bestowed on him by the virus. Michael has worked for twenty years to rebuild the ship.
Peter is now President of Texas, but finds that the human colonies have been able to spread so far that his may be the last presidency.
Alicia, having lived with Zero for a few years, learns of his plan to kill the remaining humans in his quest to destroy Amy.
Alicia leaves to warn her friends, while Zero sends his Many infected virals towards Texas in a plan to draw Amy out of hiding.
Amy is restored to human form by Peter with the help of Alicia's knowledge of water. Carter transfers his Many over to Amy to assist in defending Kerrville.
Zero's army prevails, leaving only human survivors when the morning sun drives the virals off. Peter and Michael lead the people to the ship, arriving on the coast at dusk.
Virals Alicia and Amy are joined by Peter and Michael, leaving the ship to find and kill Zero in order to end the plague.
Peter is bitten by Zero, but his love for Amy prevents him from killing her at Zero's command. Zero is killed by Amy, who saves Peter with her own blood before he is destroyed along with the rest of Zero's Many.
A near drowning has removed all traces of the virus from Alicia, who then decides to jump to her death. Michael takes a ship to England. Virals Amy and Peter live together, until he dies of old age after a couple hundred years.
Apr 16, Stjepan Cobets rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror , apocalyptic-post-apocalyptic , dystopia. My rating 4. He honestly blurted me out of the null figure because so much of description that it seemed to me too exaggerated at times.
By me the writer could shorten the book for at least one hundred pages, but who am I to touch his writing style. But the story is still very well elaborated; the story takes us back and leads through the Viral wo My rating 4.
But the story is still very well elaborated; the story takes us back and leads through the Viral world where people are powerless to resist this mighty force.
All in all a solid ending of the series, all fans of the series will not be disappointed, because this is a very good book. It would recommend a whole series to horror lovers, the post-apocalyptic world, and the vampire.
Frankly, the whole series is a complex story and you must love characters who survive in a world where life does not mean anything.
Throughout the whole series, the question of survival is in the impossible conditions. I was so excited when I was approved for the ARC of this book!
But now some time has gone by and the long and short of it is I just don't care anymore. My apologies to NetGalley and to the publisher.

The grand finale. The End. And a very satisfactory ending it was, too. An exciting adventure, with plenty of romance and explosions and tragedy.
And it was certainly better than the last one. I have this memory of The Twelve being kind of a slog. I remember being frustrated with the format, where every chapter seemed to be the backstory of a different character, leading up to a quick scene of action before heading into the next backstory.
That format is gone here, and the backstory that we d So. That format is gone here, and the backstory that we do get is just as interesting as the action, if not more so.
And I say more so because. Well, to be honest, these books are problematic. I love the story. I love the premise. But basically, thanks to what I will go ahead and call Cronin's "fancy pants writing" hat tip to my sister for that , I feel like he's convinced us that these books are better than they actually are.
They're written in a very literary style, which is let's face it unusual for both post apocalyptic and vampire novels. And since these books are so classy, and written so fancy, he lulls us into thinking that there's no way that there could be a plot hole.
Or that a character might be two-dimensional. I honestly started to think it was my fault that the science didn't make sense, and that I just couldn't empathize with the one character at all.
And then I thought, Wait, isn't it the writer's job to make me care about the characters? Isn't it the writer's or possibly the editor's to make sure that the science doesn't take hugely illogical leaps?
The book has a winning combination of science and magic going on, which is great until he breaks his own rules.
Which is. I loved the characters. Except for Alicia, I know she's supposed to be this amazing heroine but. Never liked her.
Cronin's in love with her, but I see no reason to be. I was anxious about what was going to happen. Would our heroes save the day?
Would mankind survive? After three books and probably around 1, pages I was ready for the payoff. And I got it. I got the ending I wanted, though it came about in delightfully unexpected ways.
But again, frustration, because at times there were leaps over years and sudden bursts of magic that left the characters themselves shrugging over what had happened, in order to get to that great ending.
Now, with three books and so many pages to work with, I would imagine that Cronin could have laid more groundwork so that this ending could have come about more organically.
I guess I was supposed to be so dazzled by his prose that I didn't notice, but I did. So overall I loved the series, and I think it's going to up there with the best of Stephen King and the like.
But I guess I just need to point out that this is not a perfect book. On a side note, this book contained something that I'm becoming increasingly aware of in futuristic fiction that I find amusing.
That is: the few salvaged books that have survived the apocalypse are 19th century classics by white male authors.
Why is it, when the world falls apart, all that is left is Tolstoy? I swear, if people aren't finding comparisons between their own lives and Moby-Dick, then it's Hamlet.
How about a zombie outbreak comparison to Much Ado?! Do you know what books will actually be so ubiquitous that they'll be in every Postapocalyptic Library?
Harry Potter. The Fault in Our Stars. The Hunger Games. But if we must throw in a classic, how come nobody ever finds a copy of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and compares their life to it?
Or One Hundred Years of Solitude? And how come nobody in the future ever thinks that Narnia is real, or that Percy Jackson is scripture?
And what's happened to all the James Patterson books? I mean, seriously: he puts out roughly twenty books a year!
Some of them must have survived! Or Agatha Christie? How about some Michael Crichton, for heaven's sake!
John Grisham, maybe? Nobody ever finds a copy of Dracula, which would be a better comparison than War and Peace. Or Interview with the Vampire.
Maybe we're all hoping to rebuild society on a solid foundation of British Literature, but let's face it: we're far more likely to be teaching our future generations to read using Diary of a Wimpy Kid than A Tale of Two Cities.

The last in an incredible trilogy, The City of Mirrors reads like the complex and beautifully written novel that it is—only it is about a mutant virus gone horribly wrong that leaves the world almost bereft of humans.
Who would think a novel with such gorgeous imagery and fully developed characters was about mankind trying to survive a world full of homicidal vampire-like creatures.
Because the second book, The Twelve, came out four years ago, the author has included a clever prologue that bring The last in an incredible trilogy, The City of Mirrors reads like the complex and beautifully written novel that it is—only it is about a mutant virus gone horribly wrong that leaves the world almost bereft of humans.
Because the second book, The Twelve, came out four years ago, the author has included a clever prologue that brings the reader up to speed.
The book then begins close to twenty years after the death of the Twelve. No virals have been sighted since. But since the death of the Twelve, no one has seen Amy.
Many see her in their dreams. Some have visions that are attributed to Amy. Most assume she died that day in the arena.
Then the book takes an unusual turn in its narrative. One of the characters hears the voice of Zero, the first patient who contracted the virus that destroyed the world, and finds he lives in Grand Central Station.
We are then brought back in time and find out how biochemical genius, Tim Fanning, became patient Zero. About halfway through the book, you will learn what happened to them and why it took forty years for them to come back.
The solution to save the remaining humans, using a story straight from the bible, is also ingenious. And Amy. Each ends their story in a way that makes sense for their character, as it should.
Her story comes full circle and is beautiful. While I loved this book, the last chapter of the epilogue is long and drawn-out and, to me, not necessary.
A beautiful piece of literary fiction, The City of Mirrors is amazing, complex, well written, and the characters will stick with the reader for days.
I even found myself rereading parts of it just for the writing. Justin Cronin has a gift and I will wait for his next book, horror story or not, because I know it will be a masterpiece.

That applies in particular to the last two books in the series. Their stories grip you. Sep 12, Caroline rated it really liked it Shelves: post-apocalyptic , memorable-characters , he-wrote-it , horror , science-fiction , page-turner.
Part II reviews the trilogy as a whole. Part I Series authors take note: this is how you write a finale. The City of Mirrors not only ties up the trilogy well but brings it beautifully full circle.
Cronin connected the third book to the other two with enough references and familiar characters but made it distinct enough that nothing feels repetitious.
Twists and surprises abound; leaps in time work well, never feeling jarring; no new characters are extraneous.
The City of Mirrors is more unlike than like The Twelve , though the writing is just as sharp. Cronin is the kind of author who thoughtfully selects words without overdoing it.
What makes The City of Mirrors stand out from The Passage and The Twelve --and makes it a vital installment--is its villain, lovingly crafted and one of the most well-realized characters across all three books.
This is a lengthy chapter that somehow feels way too short. Descriptions of the outdoors and cityscapes in particular are excessive. The one who must be destroyed if mankind is to have a future.
What she finds is not what she's expecting. A journey into the past. To find out how it all began.
And an opponent at once deadlier and more human than she could ever have imagined. You faced The Twelve. Now enter The City of Mirrors for the final reckoning.
As the bestselling epic races to its breathtaking finale, Justin Cronin's band of hardened survivors await the second coming of unspeakable darkness.
The world we knew is gone. What world will rise in its place? The Twelve have been destroyed and the terrifying hundred-year reign of darkness that descended upon the world has ended.
The survivors are stepping outside their walls, determined to build society anew--and daring to dream of a hopeful future. But far from them, in a dead metropolis, he waits: Zero.
The First. Father of the Twelve. The anguish that shattered his human life haunts him, and the hatred spawned by his transformation burns bright.
His fury will be quenched only when he destroys Amy--humanity's only hope, the Girl from Nowhere who grew up to rise against him.
One last time light and dark will clash, and at last Amy and her friends will know their fate. Thrilling in every way it has to be, but poetry just the same.
The writing is sumptuous, the language lovely, even when the action itself is dark and violent. A true last stand that builds and comes with a bloody, roaring payoff you won't see coming, then builds again to the big face off you've been waiting for.
A stunning achievement by virtually every measure. Read this book and the ordinary world disappears' Stephen King The Passage An epic, awe-inspiring novel of good and evil Amy Harper Bellafonte is six years old and her mother thinks she's the most important person in the whole world.
She is. Anthony Carter doesn't think he could ever be in a worse place than Death Row. He's wrong. FBI agent Brad Wolgast thinks something beyond imagination is coming.
It is. The Twelve The eagerly anticipated sequel to the global bestseller The Passage Battle-scarred from four thousand years of violent conflict, the holy city is a sacred symbol of Judaism, Islam and Christianity, and its religious wars of today reflect those of the past — Arab versus Jew, orthodox versus secular, continuity versus change.
