FALLing under the STRAIN,
This review is from: The Fall (Hardcover)
The Fall is a masterpiece of the apocolyptic/horror genre. Following the super-charged, action packed first installment of the trilogy, "The Fall" carries on the pace with brutal intensity.
As the plot begins to reveal dark and intriguing truths behind the strigoi, we learn more of the vampiric/parasitic plague and the rogue masters intentions towards the human race and ultimately the world itself. The genetic revelations surrounding the strigoi are thought provoking and, although fiction, carry a plausible reasoning behind the evolution of life in general.
"The Fall" as with "The Strain" had me captivated from the outset and I found it very difficult to put the book down. I have to confess, I am not a vampire novel fan but this is something quite different - almost zombie apocolypse in nature.
It truely is written with the machinations of a hollywood blockbuster at heart and I feel that Del Toro's artistic directorial expertise is key to the books success.
If you haven't started reading these books and you're a apocolyptic horror fan, you need to do so now!
Bring on the third and final installment in October 2011, it'll be worth every penny i'm sure.
