The first hundred pages of The Strain is a sustained exercise in terror that held this reader in spellbound delight, because Del Toro and Hogan write with crisp authenticity about both the fantastical (vampires) and the completely real (New York City, with all its odd nooks and crannies). What began in The Strain comes to a sublimely satisfying conclusion in The Night Eternal. --Stephen King
If you have read the first two volumes in this smashing new trilogy about a worldwide vampire plague set mainly in New York, I need only tell you that the third and final volume is now in stores. . . . the only truly worthy successor to Anne Rice's beautifully composed vampire chronicles. . . . Del Toro's fabulous visual imagination and Hogan's narrative pacing . . . provide nearly a thousand pages of shadowy and dangerous entertainment. . . . The novel is an art form in which special effects come cheap. In the hands of Del Toro and Hogan, the chills and thrills of supernatural terror create such inevitability that while reading their book I feared that, when a cloud passed over the face of the sun, light might never return. --San Francisco Chronicle
[T]he prose crackles, the plot barrels forward with increasing momentum and the authors knack for thoughtful horror and striking imagery remains intact. A satisfying conclusion to an intelligent, utterly chilling horror trilogy. --Kirkus Reviews
“The most credible and frightening of all the vampire books of the past decade.”
—San Francisco Chronicle
“Bram Stoker meets Stephen King meets Michael Crichton. It just doesn’t get much better than this.”
The stunning New York Times bestselling vampire saga that author Dan Simmons (Drood, The Terror) calls, “an unholy spawn of I Am Legend out of ‘Salem’s Lot,” concludes with The Night Eternal. The magnificent, if monstrously warped brainchild of cinematic horror master Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Chuck Hogan—whose novel Prince of Thieves, was praised as, “one of the 10 best books of the year” by Stephen King—The Night Eternal begins where The Strain and The Fall left off: with the last remnants of humankind enslaved by the vampire masters in a world forever shrouded by nuclear winter. Still, a small band of the living fights on in the shadows, in the final book of the ingenious dark fantasy trilogy that Newsweek says is, “good enough to make us break that vow to swear off vampire stories.”
