Teaser Tuesday · Various Things

Teaser Tuesday 27th December 2016.


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Ambrosia @ The Purple Booker.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Choice:

The City of Mirrors (Passage Trilogy 3) by Justin Cronin.



“Amy,” he yelled, “it’sme! Lucius!” He shoved the bolt into place and smacked it with the head of the wrench, driving it home. “The blood is there! Follow the scent of the blood!”


Caleb grinned. “See? That’s what I’ve been telling you. No more politics. It’s time to find a nice girl and settle down.”

If you only knew, Peter thought. Every night I close my eyes and do just that.


“Weapons up!”

All along the catwalk, the snap of magazines, the clack of bolts, rounds hammering into chambers. The last shadows were gone, drowned in the gloom.

It didn’t take long.

Book Blurb:

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 to 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.

This is the third and final book in Cronin’s Passage trilogy, I absolutely adore The Passage and it’s one of my favourite ever books, I was disappointed with its sequel The Twelve finding it to be below the level of the first book but still had high hopes for this final installment. It was released way back in June and it’s taken me until now to start reading it, it’s a massive hefty tome and being post-apocalyptic in nature it’s the perfect book for these dark and gloomy winter nights. 🙂 Below you can find my reviews for the previous two books.

This is my first post after the holidays and I hope that you are all well and that you all had a nice Christmas, wherever you are in the world.

  1. I’m just glad I survived Christmas and its never-ending meal 😂 I like the sound of this story but knowing the second book was a bit of a disappointment reminds me I’m mad at series for that reason so I’m afraid to start new ones!

    1. HA, can’t disagree with you about being mad at series! 🙂 The first book is great, there’s always something though about meeting the characters for the first time that brings you into there stories. Yeah, the second wasn’t great, I have high hopes that he’ll finish the trilogy of well, hope I’m not wrong! 🙂


  2. I’m so glad Christmas is over! So stressful, especially if you’re a parent. Hope yours was fun! I loved The Passage too but never got around to reading The Twelve. I’ll have to start over at some point if I want to read the whole series.

  3. Ok, of course you post another series I need to add to this mess I cannot even call a pile anymore. I was pretty confused with the teaser lines haha. They definitely did not match up. But then the blurb and jumping back to your 5 star review sold me as always. Looks like this one has been out a while and I missed it!
