Horror • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This volume continues Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s cleverly written trilogy, which began with THE STRAIN (2009). Two years after a vampiric virus was unleashed on the human population, humans have been supplanted at the top of the food chain by superior creatures whose own biological needs demand a diet of human blood. Narrator Daniel Oreskes delivers the tale of humankind’s mass murder, subjugation, and colonization, orchestrated by the Master, a powerful, vengeful vampire. Oreskes gives appropriate gravitas to the situation and characters—from compliant humans trying to remain unnoticed to the few remaining resistance fighters who are searching for an ancient text that may hold the key to human survival. Oreskes’s steady performance combined with a cataclysmic conclusion will leave listeners breathless. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
