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.

So sad that its finished. Loved the trilogy, loved the characters and I got lost in the relationships. Wonderful writing that despite the desperation and horror of the virus the story is filled with love and understanding. It feels as though I've just read a lifetimes work of Justin Cronin, and I'm in awe that so much could come from him. I'll be looking out for more of his works in future. Also narration was brilliant.
A great trilogy
It seemed like a long time coming but The City of Mirrors was well worth waiting for. It moved along at a good pace and brought the whole story together. Apart from great battles with the virals it is also a bitter sew love story, Fanning and Elizabeth and Amy and Peter. I really did not want the story to end and confess to feeling a bit sad when it did as these characters were easy to connect with. I hope Justin Cronin continues to write in this genre as I would definitely buy future books written by him.
