The epic scope of The Passage meets the emotional impact of The Road, as Joe Hill’s #1 New York Times bestseller is ready to set the UK alight . . .
Nobody knew where the virus came from.
FOX News said it had been set loose by ISIS, using spores that had been invented by the Russians in the 1980s.
MSNBC claimed it might’ve been created by engineers at Halliburton and stolen by Christians fixated on the Book of Revelation.
But while every TV station debated the cause, the whole world exploded into fire.
Pregnant school nurse Harper Grayson has seen lots of people burn on TV, but the first person she saw burn for real was in the playground behind the school.
A man in a dirty yellow fire fighter’s jacket, known as The Fireman, has learned to control the fire within himself, using it as both a shield and a weapon.
Now, in a desperate fight to survive, Harper must learn The Fireman’s secrets before her life—and that of her unborn child—goes up in smoke, along with the rest of civilisation . . .
But don’t take our word for it . . .
