An epic battle for survival begins between man and vampire in The Strain [Paperback available June 29] â€” the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy from one of Hollywoodâ€™s most inventive storytellers and a critically acclaimed thriller writer. Guillermo del Toro, the genius director of the Academy Award-winning Panâ€™s Labyrinth and Hellboy, and Hammett Award-winning author Chuck Hogan have joined forces to boldly reinvent the vampire novel.
The New York Times says, “A new crew of vampires is stalking the best-seller list this week…. My bets are on The Strain”, while ESPN.com’s Ray Carsillo raves, “The Strain is a tremendous, thrilling read. I had to keep putting the book down after every few pages because I was so creeped out by the amazingly descriptive passages. If you can work up the courage to finish the book, youâ€™ll be clamoring for the second and third installment of this trilogy in no time. This story will redefine how you look at vampires…. [A] phenomenal read….The Strain is a must read.”
Brilliant, blood-chilling, and unputdownable, The Strain is a nightmare of the first order.
