The Night Eternal by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

The Night Eternal by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan

This conclusion to del Toro’s Strain trilogy will not disappoint his loyal fans.  The story continues to follow the struggle between Dr. Eph Goodweather and his friends fighting the all powerful, manipulative vampire Master.  One of the major differences is that now the world is in a state of nuclear winter, allowing the vampires to roam freely for all but about two hours per day.  In addition, the Master has Eph’s son  Zack, and seems determined to inhabit the boy’s body as his next host.  In counter balance to this, Mr. Quinlin (the half-vampire son of the Master) has joined the human freedom fighters in their quest to destroy his father and his new world order ruled by vampires and willing humans.

I recommend this to readers of the two previous books, and vampire and horror fans.  Although it is not the strongest book of the trilogy, the ending is logical and satisfying.
