Just stumbled across this on Twitter – can't tell if it's real or fake!

I am really looking forward to this book. I bought The Passage and wasn't sure how much I would like it. But it was one of my best reads ever.

First, I am really looking forward to this book. In regards to the book cover, it is most likely real based on font used and style of the cover, however if real it will be for the UK release. It is very similar in styling to the UK hardcover release of The Passage.

I came across confirmation that the Twitter cover for The Twelve apparently will be utilized (at least in the UK). The Twelve is listed on Fantasy Book Review's list as one of the most anticipated books for 2012 as follows:
The Twelve by Justin Cronin
At the end of THE PASSAGE, the great viral plague had left a small group of survivors clinging to life amidst a world transformed into a nightmare. In the second volume of this epic trilogy, this same group of survivors, led by the mysterious, charismatic Amy, go on the attack, leading an insurrection against the virals: the first offensives of the Second Viral War.
To do this, they must infiltrate a dozen hives, each presided over by one of the original Twelve. Their secret weapon: Alicia, transformed at the end of book one into a half human, half viral – but whose side, in the end, is she really on?
Why Ryan is Looking Forward to it
The Passage was by far the best book I read in 2010, an outstanding achievement for a debut author. The refreshing take on vampires was executed with a wonderful story and some beautiful prose, making those 870 pages feel more like 300 pages. The Twelve promises to be a great action adventure – the goals have never been clearer for our band of heroes, and now that they know where to find the twelve head vampires it is time to reclaim the earth. It is hard to put in words just how excited I am about this book, and I fully expect it to raise the already high bar established by The Passage.
