“This book, the second in the high-tech vampire trilogy that began with The Strain, picks up where the last one left off. New York City is lost as the vampire virus is spreading faster than hope can sustain. Even with the complicated help of The Ancients, things are going very, very badly for the human race. The Rogue Master vampire who unleashed this plague has a very specific agenda, and the literal time bombs within that plan are already ticking. The answers lie in a cursed silver-plated book, but getting it isn't easy, and understanding it may take too long. It's a thrill ride on every page -- dystopia at its vampiric best.”
-- Jackie Blem, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO

“The Strain begins with a newly landed plane stopping dead on the runway. When the rescue crews arrive, they discover that all the passengers and crew are dead in their seats, with their necks cut and their bodies devoid of blood. This utterly original novel is absolutely fantastic and like no vampire novel I've read. You will love it!”
-- Jon Tobin, Saturn Booksellers, Gaylord, MI


Description

Last week they invaded Manhattan. . . . This week they will destroy the world.

The vampiric virus is spreading and soon will envelop the globe. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather—head of the Centers for Disease Control's team—leads a band of survivors determined to put an end to these bloodthirsty monsters. But it may already be too late. Powerless and vulnerable, caught in the middle of a war between Old and New World vampires, humans find themselves no longer the consumers but the consumed. And an ancient text containing the vampires' darkest secrets will control the fate of us all.
