When I read the first part of this post-viral-apocalyptic trilogy (The Passage) I was completely blown away and loved it, but this second book, I have to say, I didn’t love so much. A lot of new characters were introduced, and it was quite some time before we met up with some of our old friends from the first book, which I didn’t like. Also this book seemed to be more heavy on action and fighting, and less on character development and growing tension, and that’s not really my thing. (I loved the first Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows film with all the talking much more than the second one with all the big battle scenes!). It’s still a good book and I was only a little bit bored at times, and I still went straight into reading the third book.
