Summary The Night EternalI can record the bull and put it in my review So get this You know ow Chernobyl crashed like 40 years ago and you STILL need permits to go there and there are STILL areas that are totally off limits cause they re very dangerous Well apparently this is not the way nuclear waste works in the universe of The Strain There are going to be spoilers now but I strongly advise you to click them and read them cause I also advise you to NOT pick up this series view spoiler So basically In the end of the second book a lot of nuclear plants were blown up and if I m not mistaken there were missiles launched as well The result Two months of radioactive rain and whatnot Oh and minor detail because they certainly consider it MINOR in this book the sky is now covered with waste clouds all the time so that only two Blood of the City hours a day you get some faint light But DESPITE ALL THATumans carry on with their lives as usual only under the bad guys regime nobody dies explicitly from the radiation it s not even contaminated any In two months time I think the authors forgot plants need sunlight to grow Humans keep living in cities What exactly do they eat What even grows any in this atomic winter No schools not learning and all the intellectuals are killed and that is explicitly mentioned But trains run TV works even electricity is running Who does the repairs Who s smart enough to replace what s broken Who is maintaining those Eleven Minutes Fracture hide spoiler The Strain Trilogy is comprised 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 Blitzkrieg in the West 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 Richard Seddon 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 Make Your Own Lunch handsome men or beautiful women romancingere They suck blood and nothing else preferably type B And they smell badActually the vampires in the trilogy are not all the same There is an Avant-Garde Graphics in Russia: Posters, Book Design, Children Books, Typography and more hierarchy with the Master at the top then the strigoi who are linked to the Master telepathically There are also feelers vampiric children blinded and who scramble on all fours and who are also under the direct control of the Master This array of the undead makesuman existence exceedingly problematic To be turned is not a pleasant experience Worms that carry the vampiric virus pass from the vampire to the target through a Natural Science (Gateway to the Great Books, huge stinger that rolls out of the vampire s mouth much like a frog s tongue extends to catchis food And once turned the targets loose many of the features that mark them as Enchanted World 6 human ears nosesair genitals opaue skin refined digits Also as all vampires starting with Brian Stoker s Dracula they don t react well to silver or to daylight or ultraviolet lightThe Master The Wisdom Network An 8 step Process for Identifying Sharing And Leveraging Individual Expertise has some uniue characteristics that the strigoi lack He can andas changed bodies The Kooks Guide to Surfing his essence survives body jumps This abilityas an importance in volume 3 He alone travels with a casket layered with dirt from The Chemists Companion Guide to Patent Law hisome of origin He thinks strategizes and reasons He communicates telepathically He is fixated on one of the umans Dr Eph Goodweather although it is never clear exactly whyThe band of umans if the truth be known is no attractive in regard to its souls than the vamps who really don t Kuantum Sıçraması have souls We like them because they areuman and in short measure by the end of the first volume they become as agile killing and stalking vampires as Bruce Willis would be if A Rocky Existence head a part in the action The action in volume 3 takes place 2 years after the ending of volume 2 By then our band of Berkley Street Series Books 1 - 9: Haunted House and Ghost Stories Collection (English Edition) humans is ragged worn and mal nourished One Dr Goodweather a recovering alcoholic even pops vicodin with regularity But they barely show their deteriorated or drugged condition when confronting the strigoi they can take out gaggles of them in short order as if they were in the top of their form The authorsave given Deconstruction Omnibus humanity s defenders some backistory to flesh them out a bit although even then we would still not take them ome to meet our Moms They are just not overly loveable as a group or as individualsThe trilogy is really about action and not people good versus evil in the broadest brush strokes And by volume
