Now here is the UK cover reveal:
Now I personally prefer the UK cover..it depicts
the emotions I feel when thinking about returning to this story. The designer of this cover must attend a graphic design college because they captured these emotions and the story very well!
If you haven't yet read The Passage, it is currently available in all formats. Here is my review, one of the first I published on my blog:The Passage Review
Below are the cover and synopsis of The Passage the first book in the trilogy:
First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: 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.
As civilization swiftly crumbles into a primal landscape of predators and prey, two people flee in search of sanctuary. FBI agent Brad Wolgast is a good man haunted by what he’s done in the line of duty. Six-year-old orphan Amy Harper Bellafonte is a refugee from the doomed scientific project that has triggered apocalypse. He is determined to protect her from the horror set loose by her captors. But for Amy, escaping the bloody fallout is only the beginning of a much longer odyssey—spanning miles and decades—towards the time and place where she must finish what should never have begun.(synopsis from Goodreads)
