After reading book two I concluded that perhaps my love of The Strain was a result of Trial Run / Whip Hand / Twice Shy hatred of friendly and sparkly vampires and being read by Ron Perleman I can t rule out the former but the lack of Perleman did not lessen my enjoyment of The Night Eternal It is always difficult for me to knowow to review books that are continuations of a series since by book three it is likely unfair to evaluate whether the book can stand alone In fact who would expect it to Listeningreading 2 ძვირფასი სიცოცხლე hours of back story is enough for any series reader to want to choke the author so I actually appreciated that The Night Eternal didn t even bother We went right to the action and that was actually auge plus of this final entry in The Strain trilogyFurther it did a nice job of working well within the trilogy format which I uite liked from the entire series One thing I I, Claudius have complained about is the recent trend to serialize everything with theuge downside that every book seems to end in a cliffhanger and I end up feeling like I am in a book version of the Sims where I ave to keep paying for the expansion packs just to find out what appens The Strain avoided this pitfall and I Chicken Soup for the Soul have to take a moment to acknowledgeow much I appreciated thatOverall I thought this book was probably the strongest in the series del Toro

of three separate volumes published between 2009 and 2011 The Strain 2009 The Fall 2010 and The Night Eternal 2011 Written by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan it chronicles a vampiric takeover of the world and the efforts of a band ofumans to resistThe trilogy as a whole is entertaining Certainly not with great literary uality but it will make under Guillermo del Toro s direction a Escape from Shadow Island (Max Cassidy, heart stopping movie The writing is not bad I presume that the primary author is Chuck Hogan and based only on the one novel ofis that I Snap have read Prince of Thievese is talented As in Prince of Thieves the action in the trilogy is charged breathless and easy to follow All three books are uick reads that will keep you turning pages to the lastHere is the real strength of the trilogy The vampires creations I assume from the imagination of Guillermo del Toro are great They look as vampires should look They act as vampires should act No andsome men or
