Synopsis

“A high-tech vampire epic....Terrifying.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“Part The Andromeda Strain, part Night of the Living Dead.”
—Salon.com

“Chuck Hogan is known for his taut thrillers, Guillermo del Toro for his surreal horror films…The Strain brings out the best of each.”
Minneapolis Star Tribune

An epic battle for survival begins between man and vampire in The Strain—the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy from one of Hollywood’s most inventive storytellers and a critically acclaimed thriller writer. Guillermo del Toro, the genius director of the Academy Award-winning Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy, and Hammett Award-winning author Chuck Hogan have joined forces to boldly reinvent the vampire novel. Brilliant, blood-chilling, and unputdownable, The Strain is a nightmare of the first order.

    Review

    Gripping and accuratly scientific. Not something I find often. Also a great interpretation of the legend of the vampire. The comparison of vampirism to a virus was ingenius!

    AMAZINGLY SCARY

    Not since "It" have I been this scared reading a book. Maybe because i have the images from the FX series in my head now; but I was freaked during some of this book. It is very intense and well written. Not something I would have expected from one of the best horror directors of our time. Loved the book. Now beginning the second in the series. Enjoy!!

    Hijacked!

    I really, really enjoyed this book and bought it and the two sequels long before the TV series aired. I am severely disappointed to find the original jacket art has since been hijacked by rather graphic "art". WTH!!! Bring back the original cover because the present cover bites.

    It has me hooked!

    Knowing this is only a trilogy makes me sad because I enjoy these characters so much, & I know I won't get to be with them very long. A great view on vampires.
