Readers of Justin Cronin‘s blockbuster apocalyptic vampire thriller “The Passage” are frequently startled to find there is no romance in the book, no seductive, well-dressed vampires are looking for a mother for their undead children. Cronin has stripped away what he calls the “magic” of vampire lore to expose the kernel of fact beneath the legends. And it is bluntly terrifying.

What begins as a technothriller about a military experiment gone horribly, horribly wrong becomes, in the second half of this epic book, a sort of road novel, a journey — the “passage” — as survivors of the vampire plague look for what could be mankind’s salvation.

What if a ravenous monster were on the loose in San Francisco, and the city’s only hope was in the hands of a vampire wannabe, her boyfriend, and the real vampires that she has somehow encased in bronze? And then what if we told you, this is a love story?? We’d then also tell you, it’s Christopher Moore‘s novel “Bite Me.”
