NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST NOVELS OF THE YEAR BY TIME AND LIBRARY JOURNAL --AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Washington Post * Esquire * U.S. News & World Report * NPR/ On Point * St. Louis Post-Dispatch * BookPage   An epic and gripping tale of catastrophe and survival, The Passage is the story of Amy--abandoned by her mother at the age of six, pursued and then imprisoned by the shadowy figures behind a government experiment of apocalyptic proportions. But Special Agent Brad Wolgast, the lawman sent to track her down, is disarmed by the curiously quiet girl and risks everything to save her. As the experiment goes nightmarishly wrong, Wolgast secures her escape--but he can't stop society's collapse. And as Amy walks alone, across miles and decades, into a future dark with violence and despair, she is filled with the mysterious and terrifying knowledge that only she has the power to save the ruined world.   "Enthralling . . . You will find yourself captivated."--Stephen King   "Magnificently unnerving . . . The Stand meets The Road ."-- Entertainment Weekly   "Great entertainment . . . [a] big, engrossing read."-- The Dallas Morning News   "Mythic storytelling."-- San Francisco Chronicle   The story of Amy continues in The Twelve, coming soon .
