The Fall — &%#@ Just Hit the Fan


After devouring the first novel in The Strain series by Guillermo del Toro, I immediately delved right into the second novel, The Fall.

Picking up only a week after the events of The Strain, New York is in a state of ruin. Looters fill the streets and fires burn without a thought of extinguishing. Goodweather has joined up with Holocaust survivor and the only man that understands what is truly going on, Abraham Setrakian, and a crew of unforgettable characters to find and kill the Master of the vampires.

The pace of this novel is so fast I found it hard to find a spot to put it down. There were many scenes where I found my pace quickening and knuckles turning white as I gripped the plastic white sides of my kindle. I can’t wait until the third novel in the trilogy finally comes out this October. I plan on re-reading sometime in September so the horror and every character story can wash back over me before picking up the final novel. If you’re into vampire novels . . .  this one is a must. I’m going to go out on a limb and say it is far better than Rice’s vampires could ever be.
