Justin Cronin: You have to put some dirt on the hero and throw some sunlight on the villain.

by |September 12, 2016

When Stephen King reads, reviews and loves your thriller, you know you’re onto a winner.

That’s what’s happened with Justin Cronin and his Passage trilogy. Upon reading the three books of the series, King wrote, “Justin Cronin’s Passage trilogy is remarkable for the unremitting drive of its narrative, for the breathtaking sweep of its imagined future, and for the clear lucidity of its language. The City of Mirrors is a thrilling finale to a trilogy that will stand as one of the great achievements in American fantasy fiction.”

Justin visited Booktopia recently to chat about and sign copies of all three books in his series. If you’re a fan of gripping tales of catastrophe and survival, of literary super-thrillers, of apocalyptic masterpieces, then have a listen to the podcast below and grab your signed copies before they run out!

A snippet from the podcast:

“There are no villains and there are no heroes, not in life. We are all a collection of contradictions… If you’re going to make the reader care about your characters and the world they inhabit you need to be truthful about what people are… You have to put some dirt on the hero and throw some sunlight on the villain because that’s who people are with very few exceptions in human history, nobody is just one thing.”

About The Passage Trilogy:

First, the unthinkable happens: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment.

Then, the unspeakable happens: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear – of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

The end of the world is only the beginning…
