The Strain

I never really get into vampire stories.  The whole genre is beginning to get overplayed.  (I suppose you could say the same about zombies, but personally I can never get enough.)  But The Strain intrigued me.  It starts off somewhat slow, but becomes kind of a mystery.  By the time it becomes a full blown vampire thriller, you’re sucked in.  The Strain is the first book in a trilogy and I have yet to read the third book.  So far this one is my personal fav.  ‘The Fall’ is the second book and is good, but it’s pretty long and has some slow parts.  The aforementioned third book is titled “The Night Eternal.”
