The Twelve by Justin Cronin

The TwelveThe Twelve by Justin Cronin is the second book in The Passage Trilogy. The story is picked up a year or two after the first book (The Passage) where one of the twelve super-vampires is taken down. The book's action and character development is just as good as the first book.

If you liked the first book you will not be disappointed by the second.

The large cast of characters and the time skipping is a little ragged in places, but everything ties up nicely in the end. The scope of the vampires' psychic powers seems boundaryless. Are we dealing with biological aberrations or are we bleeding in to godlike supernaturalism?
