The Strain by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo Del Toro

Best Blogger Tips
They have always been here. Vampires. In secret and in darkness. Waiting. Now their time has come.

In one week, Manhattan will be gone. In one month, the country.

In two months-the world.

The Strain (The Strain Trilogy)

The Strain is the first novel in the the Strain Trilogy created by Pan's Labyrinth's director, Guillermo Del Toro and award-winning author, Chuck Hogan.  

The story begins when a passenger airplane lands at the JFK airport but nobody gets off. The plane is still; all power is shut down and there is no communication with anyone on board. Dr. Eph Goodweather from the Centre for Disease control is called in to investigate. What his team finds is half as gruesome as what is about to come. 

The Strain leaves you on the edge of your seat for all 624 pages. Each chapter builds suspense and is packed with action, mystery, and fear. Horror fans will love this book. The vampires are portrayed as primal monsters who's only desire is to kill and feed. Can Dr. Goodweather save the world? Or is it all ready too late?

I give this book a Thumbs Up!
