A tidal wave of darkness ready to engulf the world. And Amy is the only person who can stop it.
The Passage - Staff Choice by Iris I wrapped this book as a Blind Book Date, but was so drawn to the descriptions I found that I decided to pick it up for myself. It's an absolutely entrancing read – slightly reminiscent of The Girl With All the Gifts, except much slower-moving – about a government experiment gone horrifically wrong: in search of immortality, scientists accidentally create viral mutants that cause a complete apocalypse across North America. One of the most interesting aspects of this book is that there are different modes of storytelling, including email threads and diary entries read centuries in the future.
