From the authors of the instant New York Times bestseller The Strain comes the next volume in one of the most imaginative and frightening thriller series in many, many years Last week they invaded Manhattan. This week they will destroy the world.

The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading and soon will envelop the globe. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather'head of the Centers for Disease Control's team'leads a band out to stop these bloodthirsty monsters. But it may be too late.

    I enjoy the TV show however the book fills in what is missing. I find that the narrator can make the book worth listing to, and this narrator makes the book worth listing to. The deep richness of his voice, the tempo all makes you believe he is telling the story.

    fantastic listen. the story is unique, and has mire depth than most vampire lore. the t.v. show is good, but if you want the whole story, you have to listen to the books.
