The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin

In life I was a scientist called Fanning.
Then, in a jungle in Bolivia, I died.
I died, and then I was brought back to life... 
Prompted by a voice that lives in her blood, the fearsome warrior known as Alicia of Blades is drawn towards to one of the great cities of The Time Before. The ruined city of New York. Ruined but not empty. For this is the final refuge of Zero, the first and last of The Twelve. The one who must be destroyed if mankind is to have a future.
What she finds is not what she's expecting.
A journey into the past.
To find out how it all began.
And an opponent at once deadlier and more human than she could ever have imagined.

Well this beauty came in today and I was determined to 'bagsy it' to be the first to read it, however, I was not the only one.  There are several of us that coveted this sole copy. I couldn't do it...deprive my co-workers of the chance to read a few lines during lunch breaks. So there it sits on the table in the staff room for us to take turns reading it...howl...

Justin Cronin's The City of Mirrors has to be the stores most anticipated book of the year.
Maybe another copy, or two, may find a way to us...we can only hope.

Thank you to Orion publishers for sending this much coveted proof copy to our store.
