The Night Eternal (Book 3 in The Strain Trilogy) by Guilermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan
Publisher: William Morrow
Publish Date: October 25, 2011
The stunning New York Times bestselling vampire saga that author Dan Simmons (Drood, The Terror) calls, “an unholy spawn of I Am Legend out of ‘Salem’s Lot,” concludes with The Night Eternal. The magnificent, if monstrously warped brainchild of cinematic horror master Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Chuck Hogan—whose novel Prince of Thieves, was praised as, “one of the 10 best books of the year” by Stephen King—The Night Eternal begins where The Strain and The Fall left off: with the last remnants of humankind enslaved by the vampire masters in a world forever shrouded by nuclear winter. Still, a small band of the living fights on in the shadows, in the final book of the ingenious dark fantasy trilogy that Newsweek says is, “good enough to make us break that vow to swear off vampire stories.”
Why Jessica wants to read this? Have you read the first two books? No? Take a look at my reviews of The Strain and The Fall. I LOVE this series. I don't read a lot of cringe worthy books, but this series gives me the creepy crawleys in such a good way. I can't wait to read the graphic novels, I can't wait to see the movie (whenever Del Toro has time to get to it). There are vampires (the scary as hell kind) and their infected are zombie like. It is told from a lot of different points of view, but it is needed for this big of a concept. As I read the first two - I saw the movie playing in my head as I read it. Seriously good. This is my most anticipated book of the year!
