"In The Passage and The Twelve, Justin Cronin brilliantly imagined the fall of civilization and humanity's desperate fight to survive. Now all is quiet on the horizon--but does silence promise the nightmare's end or the second coming of unspeakable darkness? At last, this bestselling epic races to its breathtaking finale. The world we knew is gone. What world will rise in its place? The Twelve have been destroyed and the hundred-year reign of darkness that descended upon the world has ended. The survivors are stepping outside their walls, determined to build society anew--and daring to dream of a hopeful future. But far from them, in a dead metropolis, he waits: Zero. The First. Father of the Twelve. The anguish that shattered his human life haunts him, and the hatred spawned by his transformation burns bright. His fury will be quenched only when he destroys Amy--humanity's only hope, the Girl from Nowhere who grew up to rise against him. One last time light and dark will clash, and at last Amy and her friends will know their fate. Praise for Justin Cronin "One of those rare authors who work on two different levels, blending elegantly crafted literary fiction with cliff-hanging thrills."--Fort Worth Star-Telegram The Passage "Magnificent. Cronin has taken his literary gifts, and he has weaponized them. The Passage can stand proudly next to Stephen King's apocalyptic masterpiece The Stand, but a closer match would be Cormac McCarthy's The Road."--Time "Read this book and the ordinary world disappears."--Stephen King "[A] big, engrossing read that will have you leaving the lights on late into the night."--The Dallas Morning News The Twelve "[A] literary superthriller, driven at once by character and plot."--The New York Times Book Review "Gripping. Cronin [introduces] eerie new elements to his masterful mythology."--The San Diego Union-Tribune "An undeniable and compelling epic. a complex narrative of flight and forgiveness, of great suffering and staggering loss, of terrible betrayals and incredible hope."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel"
The summer guest by Justin Cronin( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award for his radiant novel in stories, Mary and O?Neil On an evening in late summer, the great financier Harry Wainwright, nearing the end of his life, arrives at a rustic fishing camp in a remote area of Maine. He comes bearing two things: his wish for a day of fishing in a place that has brought him solace for thirty years, and an astonishing bequest that will forever change the lives of those around him. From the battlefields of Italy to the turbulence of the Vietnam era, to the private battles of love and family, The Summer Guest reveals the full history of this final pilgrimage and its meaning for four people: Jordan Patterson, the haunted young man who will guide Harry on his last voyage out; the camp?s owner Joe Crosby, a Vietnam draft evader who has spent a lifetime "trying to learn what it means to be brave"; Joe?s wife, Lucy, the woman Harry has loved for three decades; and Joe and Lucy?s daughter Kate?the spirited young woman who holds the key to the last unopened door to the past. As their stories unfold, secrets are revealed, courage is tested, and the bonds of love are strengthened. And always center stage is the place itself?a magical, forgotten corner of New England where the longings of the human heart are mirrored in the wild beauty of the landscape. Intimate, powerful, and profound, The Summer Guest reveals Justin Cronin as a storyteller of unique and marvelous talent. It is a book to treasure

En 122 apr. V., soit 122 ans après l'apparition en Amérique du Nord d'un virus qui a décimé la population, la vie semble reprendre ses droits. Ce virus, à la suite d'une expérience gouvernementale, a été inoculé à douze personnes, qui, transformées en monstres assoiffés de sang, ont propagé le mal. Mais quelques poches de population ont réussi à combattre et à éliminer les Douze, mettant un terme à un siècle de terrifiantes ténèbres. Les survivants sortent de derrière leurs hauts murs, déterminés à reconstruire leur société, et osent désormais rêver d'un futur meilleur. Mais est-ce la fin du cauchemar ou une simple accalmie avant le déchaînement d'autres forces obscures ? Loin d'eux, dans une métropole à l'agonie, le Zéro attend. Le Premier. Le père des Douze. L'angoisse qui a brisé sa vie humaine le hante, et la haine qu'a engendrée sa transformation le brûle. Seule pourrait l'apaiser la mort d'Amy - le dernier espoir de l'Humanité, La Fille de nulle part - qui a grandi pour se dresser contre lui. Une ultime fois, la lumière et l'ombre vont s'affronter. Amy et ses amis iront au-devant de leur destin. Cette épopée postapocalyptique conclut avec maestria la trilogie du Passage

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The end of the world was only the beginning. In his internationally bestselling and critically acclaimed novel The Passage, Justin Cronin constructed an unforgettable world transformed by a government experiment gone horribly wrong. Now the scope widens and the intensity deepens as the epic story surges forward with ... THE TWELVE In the present day, as the man-made apocalypse unfolds, three strangers navigate the chaos. Lila, a doctor and an expectant mother, is so shattered by the spread of violence and infection that she continues to plan for her child's arrival even as society dissolves around her. Kittridge, known to the world as "Last Stand in Denver," has been forced to flee his stronghold and is now on the road, dodging the infected, armed but alone and well aware that a tank of gas will get him only so far. April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin. These three will learn that they have not been fully abandoned'and that in connection lies hope, even on the darkest of nights. One hundred years in the future, Amy and the others fight on for humankind's salvation ... unaware that the rules have changed. The enemy has evolved, and a dark new order has arisen with a vision of the future infinitely more horrifying than man's extinction. If the Twelve are to fall, one of those united to vanquish them will have to pay the ultimate price. A heart-stopping thriller rendered with masterful literary skill, The Twelve is a grand and gripping tale of sacrifice and survival.
