Publisher's Summary

In life I was a scientist called Fanning. Then, in a jungle in Bolivia, I died. I died, and then I was brought back to life....

Prompted by a voice that lives in her blood, the fearsome warrior known as Alicia of Blades is drawn towards one of the great cities of The Time Before. The ruined city of New York. Ruined but not empty. For this is the final refuge of Zero, the first and last of The Twelve. 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.

The publishing phenomenon that began with the astonishing worldwide best seller The Passage now comes to its epic conclusion.

    "Perfect end to an incredible journey"

    City of Mirrors, the long awaited end to an epic and wonderful trilogy, preceded by The Passage and The Twelve, is as rich, detailed and emotionally satisfying as its predecessors, and completes the set perfectly. The central characters all finish the story arc so well, with enough time given to each of their stories. Scott Brick reads so well - not a single character, note or emotion out of place - his Fanning is so spooky I found it scary to listen to at night! I'm not giving out any spoilers, just wanted to say this is beautifully written, beautifully read, and leaves us much to think about. Bravo!

    "Really deep and engaging story"

    Considering the weight of this epic I felt like it kept me engaged the whole way through. Really connected with the complex characters and enjoyed the unexpected turns.
    A good series for those who enjoy undercurrents and don't mind a rambling digression here and there.

    "Like a movie script"

    Some trademark luscious description and emotional moments but too many contrived cliffhangers. At times there were 4 or 5 desperate situations happening at once. And given that they all know the virals are susceptible to fire and water, why persist with bullets and knives? Seems like the sub-editors got hold of this one and demanded more action and desperate situations!

    "Scary vampire voice"

    I loved this series so am very biased towards this book. I especially enjoyed listening to Scott Bricks scary vampire voice while driving late at night through rural Australia.... Although at the time it was actually kind of terrifying :-)
    Would recommend to anyone who has read/ listened to the other books in the series. I wouldn't recommend this book unless you have read the previous books... The story would still make sense but it wouldn't be as good.

    "very long glad it was audio"

    struggled to finish but glad I did...nicely resolved...as stated in my previous reviews not sure if it's the narrator's voice or the story but at times found this hard going...it was however well written, unique and we'll rounded....it think lovers of apocalyptic novels will like it.

    "Utterly brilliant! A masterpiece"

    What can I say about this book - having waited so long for the final part of this trilogy I was afraid that the expectation would outweigh the event but I am thrilled to say that Justin Cronin didn't let me down. The story was brilliantly crafted with the use of his central characters being allowed to evolve to their own individual ends. Scott Brick also has to be mentioned as his narration was - just like the first two books - exceptional. If you haven't listened to The Passage and The Twelve, I suggest that you download them immediately and then you are in a position to appreciate just how great this book is 😊

    "Apocalyptic visions do not get better than this"


    He saved the best for last, this is a much more humane, with a world view that is more hopeful; we are still viewing events that expand centuries. but they are more humane and less monstrous than in the previous books, they hold more hope for ones left in the future and the recreation of a society similar to ours
    .
    The images in this book are some of the best accomplished, you feel you are seeing the events with your own eyes and that is very seldom something writers can do for me.
    The first book was a tour de force, the second was a dark horror tale of religious proportions, the third one reencounters humanity in the past and the future with beauty and hope.

    "Bittersweet"

    I couldn't wait for this release but when it arrived I couldn't bring myself to start. In the end, I loved it. I'm broken hearted its over and I will miss Amy and Peter and Sarah but the ending had more happiness in it than I would have expected with such high drama.
    Thank you Justin Cronin for an absolute epic and thank you Scott Brick for the gentle depth your voice gives to these incredible words.

    "Excellent, I cannot believe the story is over."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The City of Mirrors to be better than the print version?

    Yes you can actually get totally involved in the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I cannot say Micheal,Hollis, Carter, Amy, Peter, High top, Wolgast, Alicia so many characters I was invested in each character.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    All of it, so well written, such detail to the writing, I was there.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Gripping, compelling, awe inspired


    Any additional comments?

    What will I do without Amy,Peter,Sara,Hollis,Alicia and the rest in my life, I am actually feeling a sense of loss.

    "Jarring change but eventually brilliant"

    I really struggled with this third book. It is a book of two halves and the first half takes us on a wayward tangent that I want expecting. It was frustrating as I had waited for this book to be released and now it wasn't telling what happens next. Instead of went back in time.

    The story as at know it returns in the second half of the book and Cronin does this it all together in the end. However, I felt the back story was too long and could have been handled in a less jarring manner.

    Having said that, this is a brilliant ending to the story. Moving and emotional. Well worth struggling through the first half of the book.

    "long wait for this book"

    i really wasn't impressed with this last part of the trilogy.

    the first half is a love story (unnecessary back story).

    the middle is a story about frontier life. at the end it turned back into a vampire story.

    a very long wait for a disappointing conclusion.
