Brings the Vampire myth right up to date,
This review is from: The Fall (Hardcover)
The first novel initiates the plan of a rogue ancient vampire hellbent on destroying the ancients and establishing a new world order.
The Fall documents the attempts to stop his plan before it's too late for mankind.
I found the Strain hard to put down and likewise The Fall.
Yes, some of the characters may be a little cliche'd but put that to one side and they have created a whole, well considered, fresh new framework for the Vampire myth - and it works. From the viral spread, the worms, the vampires physical attributes, hive connection, the grotesque 'feelers'and the scheming 'Master' there is more than enough to justify this as a highly engaging trilogy.
Excellent stuff. Can't wait for the third installment and the inevitable movie/s.
