It's been two years since the vampiric virus was unleashed in "The Strain" and the entire world now lies on the brink of annihilation. There has been a mass extermination of humans orchestrated by the Master--an ancient vampire possessed of unparalleled powers. The future of humankind lies in the hands of a ragtag band of freedom fighters--Dr. Eph Goodweather, Dr. Nora Martinez, Vasiliy Fet, and Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master who is bent on revenge. It's their job to overturn this devastating new world order. But good and evil are malleable terms now, and the Master is most skilled at preying on the weaknesses of humans.

Now, at this critical hour, there is evidence of a traitor in their midst. . . And only one man holds the answer to the Master's demise, but is he one who can be trusted with the fate of the world? And who among them will pay the ultimate sacrifice--so that others may be saved?

This is an awesome book that has grabbed my attention and has not let it go. I got hooked to the show and decided to listen to the trilogy and I must say that it its even better than the show. You also start to notice several areas that the authors and the show does not parralel. But, this book is really good and is a great listen.

Good story but needs some serious editing

OK, so this story wasn't the best vampire tale I've read, but it wasn't the worst, either. My problem with this entire trilogy is that it needed a serious editor. Not "you're bestselling authors, I wouldn't change a thing", but "this whole story can be told in 2 books instead of 3 and here is the deadweight". And believe me, there is plenty of self-indulgent deadweight and it drags down what could have been an enjoyable read.
