The Passage - Justin Cronin This is a really well done vampire novel. The characters are generally really interesting, but it takes some patience to get to like Peter. He's not a bad character, just oblivious at times, enough that you want to grab him by the shoulders and shake him until he sees what's going on right under his nose. It's a little frustrating, but he seems to come out alright in the end. I'm definitely looking forward to reading the next two books in the trilogy when they come out.
