Like many of you that read this series, I was quite upset when it was over. I am not the type that reads much about extreme fantasy story lines like this one, but because of its close like and relate-ability to the real world, it quickly became one of my favorites. The entire series is extremely well written, keeping the action going at just the right times, and also exploring the humanity of us and how we fight to keep what and who we are close, in the face of adversity and annihilation. With characters from all across the globe and almost every walk of life entangled in the struggle to rid the world of strigoi, we see how everyone of us have the will and the strength to fight for our humanity. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a great story and a fascination with the fantastic! If you enjoyed Hellboy, you will absolutely love this series!

About This Item

The third and final novel in the stunning "New York Times"-bestselling trilogy--about a vampire invasion and the band of men and women who must stop them--by one of Hollywood's most popular and imaginative storytellers, the creator of the Oscar]-winning "Pan's Labyrinth."

"The most credible and frightening of all the vampire books of the past decade."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Bram Stoker meets Stephen King meets Michael Crichton. It just doesn't get much better than this."
--Nelson DeMille

The stunning New York Times bestselling vampire saga that author Dan Simmons (Drood, The Terror) calls, "an unholy spawn of I Am Legend out of 'Salem's Lot," concludes with The Night Eternal. The magnificent, if monstrously warped brainchild of cinematic horror master Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Chuck Hogan--whose novel Prince of Thieves, was praised as, "one of the 10 best books of the year" by Stephen King--The Night Eternal begins where The Strain and The Fall left off: with the last remnants of humankind enslaved by the vampire masters in a world forever shrouded by nuclear winter. Still, a small band of the living fights on in the shadows, in the final book of the ingenious dark fantasy trilogy that Newsweek says is, "good enough to make us break that vow to swear off vampire stories."

The Night Eternal, which is book three of The Strain trilogy, is just marginally better than the second, because it's interesting to read about what the world is like after the takeover of The Master. I'd recommend you read The Strain and consider it good because books two and three are poor by comparison.

I was devastated when ...

I was devastated when I finished the final volume of the Strain trilogy. These are my favorite vampires books, because I felt very emotionally invested in the characters. Their struggle for survival, sanity, and the care of their loved ones really rang true.

I finished it on Hallo...

I finished it on Halloween, how appropriate!A vampire book for guys! Not any sappy, romantic vamps from the Pacific Northwest here, del Toro tells an entirely different story.First off, I'll admit I didn't read the first two books of the trilogy. There were references to things that had gone on before, but it didn't affect the readability or my enjoyment of this installment at all.The story takes place two years after the virus that turns humans to vampires was unleashed, and the entire world now lies in near-continuous night as a nuclear winter blocks out the sun, nearly perfect for the propagation of vampires. Humanity has been purged of its best and brightest, the humans that remain are separated by according to status and usefulness... those who breed, and those who are bled. The fate of humanity is in the hands of a ragtag group, who may be the only hope of overturning this new world order.The action is pretty much nonstop throughout the book, with the characters seeming to be perpetually going from one bad situation to another. If you're looking for a book with a ray of sunshine, this isn't it, it's dark and pretty much stays that way. Any time there looks like there might be a ray of sunshine coming, it gets eclipsed by something bad.The book reads a bit like a movie storyline, which is understandable considering del Toro's history in film, but I think that also helps him to brings out the vivid imagery in the book that helped immerse me into the dark world he had created. The ending might not be what many expect (or want), but it definitely brings the story to an end.In reading other reviews (prior to reading the book), some consider this may be the weaker of the three installments. Considering how much I enjoyed this one, I'll definitely be looking forward to reading the others.This was a First-Reads giveaway!

To me, it was the weak...

To me, it was the weakest link in an excellent trilogy. Maybe it was the lack of Setrakian, maybe it was the many (too many?) religious overtones, maybe it was the heavy-handedness in the recurring father/son-relationship motifs, maybe it was the radical change in Eph's character. Dunno. Still, it was a very good and quick read although it never really scared me or freaked me out as the previous two did.

The Strain trilogy com...

The Strain trilogy comes to its conclusion in The Night Eternal. After detonating multiple nuclear weapons, vampires now have dominion over a darkened world. The rements of humanity are carefully controlled. After all the vampires do need a stable food supply for the future. Eph Goodweather, Fet the exeterminator, Dr. Nora Martinez and Gus the gang banger race the Master in an attempt to find a lost volumn of vampire mythology which may lead to the destruction of the Master. Aided in their pursuit is a half breed vampire named Quinlan. But the Master has literally millions of eyes around the world. And Eph's son Zack, who the Master has spent two years corrupting. It's a race against the clock as the humans try to outwit an ancient master vampire for control of humanities destiny.

Not as engrossing as t...

Not as engrossing as the first two books; it reads more like a movie script than a novel, but you need it to find out how this exciting trilogy ends. The brilliant epidemiologist but flawed father Ephraim Goodweather is fighting the vampire epidemic with his ragtag rebel team using information from ancient texts now that modern science has failed. The Master has chosen Eph's son to be at his side. Can Eph save his son and the world, or will he have to choose?
