Last week they invaded Manhattan. . . . This week they will destroy the world.
The vampiric virus is spreading and soon will envelop the globe. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather—head of the Centers for Disease Control's team—leads a band of survivors determined to put an end to these bloodthirsty monsters. But it may already be too late. Powerless and vulnerable, caught in the middle of a war between Old and New World vampires, humans find themselves no longer the consumers but the consumed. And an ancient text containing the vampires' darkest secrets will control the fate of us all.
“A cross between The Hot Zone and ’Salem’s Lot.”
“I cannot wait to see where Del Toro and Hogan take us next.”
—James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of Bloodline
The wait is over! Guillermo del Toro, one of Hollywood’s most popular and imaginative storytellers (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Hammett Award-winning thriller writer Chuck Hogan (Prince of Thieves) return with The Fall—the second blood-chilling volume in their critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling Strain Trilogy. The Fall picks up where The Strain left off—with a vampiric infection spreading like wildfire across America as a small band of heroes struggles to save the dwindling human race from the vampire plague. Horror fiction and dark fantasy fans will be swept up in this epic story that bestselling author Nelson DeMille describes as “Bram Stoker meets Stephen King meets Michael Crichton.”
