The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading across the country and soon, the world. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather—head of the Center for Disease Control’s team—leads a small band out to stop these bloodthirsty monsters. But it may be too late.

Ignited by the Master’s horrific plan, a war erupts between Old and New World vampires, each vying for total control. Caught between these warring forces, humans—powerless and vulnerable—are no longer the consumers, but the consumed.

Though Eph understands the vampiric plague better than anyone, even he cannot protect those he loves from the invading evil. His ex-wife, Kelly, has been turned by the Master, and now she stalks the city, in the darkness, looking for her chance to reclaim Zack, Eph’s young son.

With the future of the world in the balance, Eph and his courageous team, guided by the brilliant former professor and Holocaust survivor Abraham Setrakian and exterminator Vasiliy Fet, must combat a terror whose ultimate plan is more terrible than anyone first imagined—a fate worse than annihilation.

Review: The second book in The Strain Trilogy starts with Eph and the members of his new 'family' doing everything they can to stay hidden yet strike out against the vampires who have overrun their city and soon the world. They've got to get a leg up on the rogue Master vampire who is hell-bent on the destruction of the human world and they have very few chances left.

This is a creepy and thrilling tale of a seemingly unstoppable evil that will leave you with no nails (after biting them all off) once you're done! I am hugely enamored of this trilogy so far and every book only gets better. Give these a try and I promise you won't sleep for a few days! Excellent, excellent, excellent :-)

The Strain Trilogy: The Strain (1), The Fall (2), Eternal Night (3)

  1. As if you couldn’t guess by the title of this novel, this one is dark. It begins bleakly, from the point we left the tale in the first book. In the second novel the problem becomes wider known. Our band of would-be heroes battle against ever-increasing opposition
