The Night Eternal

13037217The Night Eternal
The Strain #3
by Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan
Fantasy
Ebook, 318 Pages
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

 

The weakest book in the Strain Trilogy.
Angels, some seriously blasphemous new age God re-interpretation, apocryphal scripture like stuff. It all came out of left field all of the sudden.
We have a story involving Vamps as virus vectors and how they plotted among themselves and suddenly we’re all metaphysical and religious?
And very poorly thought out religion at that.

There was no tension. No suspense. Characters and situations felt like the authors had already used them up and now they were paper thin [no pun intended] and being over/misused.
It wasn’t bad, it just didn’t live up to the mysteriousness and high-tension created in the first book.
