Chuck Hogan is an American author. He is the author of Prince of Thieves: A Novel, a work which Ben Affleck's Academy Award-nominated film The Town in 2010 is based on. The work won the 2005 Hammett Prize and was called one of the ten best novels of the year by Stephen King. He is also the co-author of a trilogy of vampire novels with Guillermo del Toro. His title The Night Eternal: Book III of The Strain Trilogy made Publisher's Weekly Best Seller List for 2011.
The writer/director of Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy and Hogan pair up again for the follow-up to their best-selling debut, The Strain. A vampiric virus has conquered New York City and threatens to spread across the country and around the world. CDC team leader Eph Goodweather takes to the streets to combat these savage creatures who are locked in their own war. The Old World Ancients are raging against the New World vampires in a grudge match to dominate the planet. Driving this conflict is the Master, a clever and astute orchestrator of chaos.
Verdict: Fast-paced, action-packed, and even better than the first volume, this fun and scary read is highly recommended for thriller and horror fans. Newcomers to the trilogy will have no trouble following the story line. Buy multiple copies.
