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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Disappointing Loss of Energy"

    I loved The Passage, I enjoyed The Twelve, but this third instalment has lost a lot of the energy of the earlier books. It is too reflective and inward-looking, too slow-moving to be enjoyed in the same way.
    It has merit, but the leaning toward the mystic and away from the adventure did not entertain me as much.

    "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 😊

    "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.

    "All questions answered at last"

    Worth the wait no spoilers here just listen and be prepared for a roller coaster of emotions
    Read in the same beautifully dour voice as the other books which adds to the solemnity and joy tension and relief
    As good as the other two books
    A brilliant trilogy

    "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.

    "Good...but not great!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes...if you have read the Passage and The Twelve you have to read this


    If you’ve listened to books by Justin Cronin before, how does this one compare?

    A bit disappointing for me compared to previous installments but still well worth the listen


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    His narration style can be a bit mellow dramatic at times but he does characters brilliantly


    Could you see The City of Mirrors being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    Not if Stephen Kings books are anything to go by but if they did make a movie Kevin Spacey would be a great choice for Zero

    I've been a fan of this trilogy the moment it was released. Justin Cronin has created a masterpiece, and Scott Brick brings it alone with his exceptional reading skills.

    "Not as good as the first two books"

    First off I must start by saying the the book is very well written and is still an interesting listen. However, I found the plot was not as gripping as the first two books, non the less it was still enjoyable.

    The narration was excellent and did the book every justice. Overall definitely worth a listen.

    "All Eyes."

    Though the overt subject matter didn't initially appeal to me (vampires!), what this story is really about is humanity and human relationships. The trilogy is neatly observed and well-imagined, a vast canvas expressed with prowess and skill. There are some cliches and occasional self-indulgences but overall the experience is epic, well-informed and compelling. A seriously good experience. But don't start with Mirrors, begin where the story starts, with The Passage, then The Twelve, and finally City of Mirrors. All eyes, brothers and sisters, all eyes.

    "Not as good as first two"

    Ok so I've enjoyed the series, but the last book could have had 5 hrs shaved off it easily. I found it hard and my mind wandered easily. Too much drivel about imaginary places... you can skip from 23hrs to 28hrs and not miss anything of any significance. Felt like author was trying to reach a word count in some coursework
