Wow, the first book showed promise. This one falls flat. The characters were unfortunately not interesting where I lost a lot of momentum in finishing this series. ( )

I tried really, really hard to get over my disappointment with the first book to give this one a fair chance. However, there really aren't any redeeming factors here. Most of the main characters flatline in their development, and the plot moves in circles at a snail's pace. The dialogue is relatively tired, and character interactions become almost entirely implausible and unrealistic.

Where the first book had promise, this one is difficult to slog through. The ending would be more sentimental and interesting if the characters made sense and the plot wasn't full of holes, but unfortunately that isn't the case here. This simply falls into the category of another book with an all-powerful villain that decides to leave the task of dealing with his only real threat with ineffective and bumbling henchmen. Oh, and a few Nazis thrown in for good measure - vampire Nazis are always bound to get some people to continue reading. ( )

Among the many artistic and practical challenges that novelists face, one of the more frustrating must be this: writing the second novel of a trilogy that can stand on its own rather than as a bridge from the first novel to the concluding novel. Del Toro and Hogan confront that challenge with “The Fall,” the second novel in their trilogy, and they succeed better than most.

The story picks up immediately after the conclusion of “The Strain,” the first book in the trilogy, and the remaining band of vampire hunters fight the good fight against the Master and his vampire and human minions. The action is fast-paced, the plotting is quick, and the death and destruction are relentless. In the course of the story, we learn more about Setrakian’s past, and a new plot element is introduced—an ancient book that contains the secrets of the strigoi’s origins. The novel concludes with the death of a major character, another character in dire jeopardy, and the world on the brink of nuclear winter—all of which points clearly to a thrilling conclusion in “The Night Eternal,” the final book in the trilogy.

I suspect that the concluding volume (which I’ve not yet read) will be just as enjoyable as the first and somewhat better than this one—a serviceable and better-than-average “bridge” between the first and the last. ( )

Marred only by a few hard to read chapter beginnings and a fair number of sentence fragments, this was a great vampire story. ( )

Good follow-up of The Strain. ( )

Mientras la enfermedad y la cuarentena empiezan a desparramarse por todo el país y el mundo, Eph y Nora identifican el parásito gusano que es el agente infeccioso. Se encuentran atrapados entre las dos facciones en guerra, los Vampiros del Viejo Mundo y los Vampiros del Nuevo Mundo, que luchan para controlar el planeta. Los humanos se han visto desplazados hasta el tope de la cadena alimenticia y ahora comprenden, para su horror, lo que es no ser el consumidor sino... el consumido.
