Product Description

Review

Praise for THE NIGHT ETERNAL:

‘A devilishly good read, full of satisfying scares’ Stephen King

Praise for THE FALL:
‘The climax, all fire and brimstone, nicely sets up the third and final volume’ Financial Times

‘Enough blood-curdling action to set up a gory finale’ News of the World

‘Relentlessly paves the way for what promises to be an epic third book’ Kirkus

Praise for THE STRAIN:
‘A near-flawless thriller’ News of the World

‘A rattling piece of escapism’ The Times

‘The first in a trilogy that soars with spellbinding intrigue. Truly, an unforgettable tale you can’t put down once you read the first page. I can’t wait until the next one.’ Clive Cussler

‘Blood and apocalypse mix in a terrifying story that feels like it was ripped from today's headlines. Vividly wrought and relentlessly paced, THE STRAIN haunts as much as it terrifies. I cannot wait to see where Del Toro and Hogan take us next.’ James Rollins

‘Diverting and never less than expertly crafted’ Guardian

I loved The Strain, enjoyed The Fall and was so so so disappointed by this, the final book in the trilogy. It lost the inventiveness and tension of the previous 2 books and I really missed the best character Setrakian. It read like a book that both writers didn't quite know how they wanted it to end and so they finish with, even by fantasy standards, a complete Cock and Bull story!!!!

Format: Hardcover
Whilst I have enjoyed the other two titles by Guillermo and Chuck, I sadly have to say that this one was a real let down, it was mainly pure action, had no real reasoning behind it and whilst it would have made an acceptable film in this format it was sadly lacking.

Add to this poor description and a storyline that picks up two years later that should have had more happening and it felt rather like filler rather than a book that had any real merit leaving me thinking that the duo would have been better leaving the series as a duology instead. Finally add to this rather poor characterisation, dire prose and a story that didn't make any real sense and it was sadly a mishmash I'd rather have missed.

Format: Paperback
After the disaster that was the second book it was almost impossible to salvage anything in what became a mess of a plot. It was with little hope I picked up “The Night Eternal”, expecting little more than at least a satisfying conclusion amidst the train wreck the trilogy had become. Unfortunately not even that the authors were able to provide.
The book is a boring, unimaginative, slow and annoying drag. After getting rid, in the second part, of the best character, the one who held the plot and the characters together and formed the best rivalry with the villain, the authors still managed to make the remaining, weak and uninteresting characters... worse. Yes, the story takes place two years after the second book ends. We're in full apocalypse now. Society has crumbled, the world is ruled by vampires and humans are slaves, used only for harvesting their blood. You might think during that time our heroes had been hard at work, fighting against the vampire rule, forming an underground resistance, maybe getting ready to take the fight to those evil bloodsuckers. Well you would be wrong. Nothing has happened. Our protagonist, the most boring hero of all time, Eph, is still crying over his miserable existence and getting drunk... and high... and involved a deeply compelling... love triangle in the middle of the vampire apocalypse. Never mind that no hints to this was ever in the other books. Who cares right? Anyway apparently the other two members of the resistance, spent the two years falling in love! How sweet! Oh and the final member of the resistance just killed lots of vampires “guerrilla style”. What did he accomplish? Well not much but at least he was... well, killing vampires.
So where to start? Its all bad really.

Possible Spoilers

Needless to say this book is part of trilogy and hence is not a stand-alone novel, and this may sound obvious but you need to start with the first, of The Strain, to make sense of what's going on.

While I am avid fan of the strain trilogy, I must say this book is by far the poor relation in the trilogy. In my humble opinion the authors should have only done two books, with the contents of book three put in into book two etc. What you have here is a book that is placed about two years after the end of events in book two, the book answers the origins of Mr Quinlan, the Ancients and the Master. The title of book three probably refers to the fact that the Earth is in a Nuclear Winter. The world's new ecology is perfect for vampires. There are only two hours of murky daylight per day, thus enabling the vampires to roam at will.

Night Eternal is principally the concerned with the tying up loose ends and answering unanswered questions from books 1 and 2. There is less horror and scary scenes. The World is run by the Master and his hordes of mind controlled vampires. The real horror here - what is left of a decimated humanity and the ease in which it complies to the Master's new world order? A world of large factory farms designed to process blood, preferably B plus blood, from Human live stock. The old and the infirm are some of the first to be slaughtered. So are the upper echelons of society as well as the Intelligentsia, they are all slaughtered out right, none are infected. For the Master has learnt well from Nazi death camps. After all the Ancients (similar beings to the Master) say, it was at one of these camps where his appetite for, an orgy of, mass feeding came to the fore.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By R. A. Cruikshank on 4 Jan 2012
Format: Hardcover
There was no spring in this novel's step that the two previous chapters possessed. It seemed like a straight run to the finale with little in the way of twists and turns. Zack was built up convincingly towards a showdown with his father that never materialized, the nuke had no build up at all and even the Master was a let down, after having a Dracula-esque terror to him in the first book and an overbearing omnipresence in the second. Frankly he was crap in the finale. Eph too. It was lacklustre at best and felt rushed, as others have said. The first book was by far the best and its winning formula was seemingly exhausted by the end of the second book. The saddest part is everyone could tell you how Night Eternal SHOULD have ended, but nobody thought to tell Chuck or Guillermo. Waste of a good finale. Stick to the first two books and leave the ending to your imagination, that way you won't be disappointed.
