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.

    "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

    Story
    "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

    "Stunning book.. perfectly narrated!"

    I re-read The Passage and The Twelve before reading this so it has been an epic journey and ALOT of pleasurable hours of listening.

    The story, the writing, the narration all adds up to a collection of books that go down as my favourites of all time. If you like to get stuck into a book and it's world and enjoy falling in love with great characters and follow them through the highs and lows then these books are for you! I can't recommend them enough!

    I feel a little bereft now I have finished. My next audio or otherwise book is going to have a lot to live up to!!

    "Dreadful epilogue - don't listen"

    An excellent conclusion to the vast trilogy. This was spoilt, ruinously, by the epilogue.
    Just accept it as a bad idea and stop listening there... honestly.
    The story unfolds and brought laughter and tears in equal measure.
    Now what can I look forward to? I miss the characters.

    "The best in the series"

    The perfect end to the trilogy. I didn't want it to end but if it had to end, this is the way to do it. Great audio by Scott Brick!

    "Amazing story"

    Like all the books in this trilogy they just suck you right in. The passage was my introduction to audible books. I've now listened to this series 3 times. The way Justin describes the details are amazing and Scott's voices are mesmerising. You really feel like you're there with them on this epic journey. You feel the highs and the lows, way better than any film. Thank you Justin and Scott for this experience.

    "Oh my god!!"

    What a story! All three books so many hours listening every second worth my time. Beautifully written. Superbly narrated. I loved every character all of them made the story what it is. Amy, Peter, Lish, Sarah, Hollis, Micheal even soldier! I worried for them all. Amazing I was gutted when the last book ended. I will listen to them again some day and look forward to the adventure.

    I'd recommend this 100% it's a truly amazing listen. I hope it's made into a film and that the actors can do it justice.
