T the top of the food chain and are now fighting simply to survive Also true is that the vampires in this novel are vicious vile and disgusting creatures and are a far cry from the kind of sparkly vamps that inspire scenes like this Returning from the first book are Ephraim Eph Goodweather the only person to recognize the vampire plague for what it is and his soon Zack The two of them are on the run from Zack s mother who has turned and feels a compulsion to find and turn Zack A minor point but I thought this dark reflection of "the maternal instinct was an interesting nuance to the story Apart from "maternal instinct was an interesting nuance to the story Apart from also returning to the story is the van helsing like Abraham Setrakian who has been hunting the Master and his kind since the end of World War II Setrakian is my favorite character in the series and I found his narrative thread to be compelling Setrakian is joined by Vasily Fet a former rat exterminator who adapts his killing methods to be effective against the vampires Together they are on the hunt for a rare manuscript that holds the key to the origin of the vampires and A Possible Means Of Stopping possible means of stopping leads to another highlight for me which was learning the ancient history of stopping themThis leads to another highlight for me which was learning the ancient history the vampires as well as the nature of the rift between the renegade Master and the original master vampires While the back story is not particularly new or original I thought its execution was very ood and it kept my interest throughout I also thought the scenes with the Master and the other original vampires were very well done They all made for compelling bad Class of 92: Out of Our League guys Ultimately if you liked the Strain then I think you will enjoy the evolution of the series that takes place in this installment and will be satisfied enough to pick up the concluding volume in the trilogy If you did not like The Strain or were lukewarm about it I am not sure that this book will do anything to change your mind It is in many ways of the same but for those like me that enjoyed the first book that is definitely aood thing Recommended.

Wow Just wow I wanted to Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story give this 5 stars as the ending is powerful But I onlyave The Strain 4 stars and this isn t better overall The ending of this book is much better but The Strain is better from cover to cover despite its book is much better but The Strain is better from cover to cover despite its weak ending Definitely looking forward to The Night Eternal I could see the series How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly--and the Stark Choices Ahead getting a 5 star out of me though the individual books areetting 4 More than the series etting a 5 star out of me though the individual books are etting 4 More than the of its parts and all that But that will depend on how the authors wrap up the trilogyStay tuned I m not even sure why I read this since the first book The Strain was mediocre at best I uess I m just a sucker heh for anything that combines vampires with apocalytpic plagues my two favorite things In a nutshell an ancient parasite resurfaces and takes the world by storm turning people into vampires of a sort while a ragtag roup of Moonrise gooduys forms a resistance and tries to save the world In this book the planet s infrastructure begins to collapse as the parasite takes hold What bugs me is the half assed writing Del Toro via Chuck Hogan obviously undertook this project with the film adaptations in mind and there s nothing annoying than a book that is not written for reading It s like this is the first draft and initial marketing push for the movie sensation to come I hate that What I do like is the vampire as parasite thing It s been done before Scott Westerfeld pulls this off brilliantly in Peeps but it s still a breath of fresh air to encounter vamps who are repulsive destructive and animalistic as opposed to sparkly seductive boyfriend material The creatures here have 6 foot long suction cup stinger thingies that come flying out their mouths and their bodies are filled with white pus These movies are flying out their mouths and their bodies are filled with white pus These movies are not Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi going to be for the tween set I ll probably read the third and last book because that s what I do but overall I am disappointed in this series I wasn t a del Toro fan to begin with Pan s Labyrinth in my opinion is all style and no substance but I did have high hopes for this project Sigh.

ARE NO VAMPIRE KITTENSNO VAMPIRE KITTENS THIS BOOK 40 stars Let me begin by saying that I seem to be impressed with this series than some of my friends who find the series to be too formulaic Personally I am really enjoying this series and think that this second volume did a reat job of moving the story along I didn t like this installment uite as much as The Strain which I thought was just superb I think part of the reason for the lesser rating on this book is that in The Strain I really loved both the back story of the Master vampire which del Toro and Hogan spent a lot of time on and also the detailed description of the turning through the eyes of the soon to be vampire which I had never seen before and that I thought made The Strain uniue in the crowded world of vampire fiction As the title implies this second installment begins soon after the end of The Strain with the Vampire plague having pretty much destroyed New York and the world is poised to follow One thing is clear humans are no longer Sedentos de sangue ue vagueiam pelas ruas da cidade Entre eles está Eph Goodweather o médico ue consegue finalmente identificar o parasita ue causa a infecção Mas pode ser demasiado tardeCom o futuro do mundo em jogo Eph também. .
