HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | January 24, 2013 | Hardcover

The Night Eternal: Book Three of the Strain Trilogy is rated 3 out of 5 by 3.

From the authors of the instantNew York Times bestsellersThe Strain and The Fall comesthe final volume in one of the mostelectrifying thriller series in years

It''s been two years since the vampiric virus was unleashed in The Strain, and the entire world now lies on the brink of annihilation. There is only night as nuclear winter blankets the land, the sun filtering through the poisoned atmosphere for two hours each day-the perfect environment for the propagation of vampires.

There has been a mass extermination of humans, the best and the brightest, the wealthy and the influential, orchestrated by the Master-an ancient vampire possessed of unparalleled powers-who selects survivors based on compliance. Those humans who remain are entirely subjugated, interred in camps, and separated by status: those who breed more humans, and those who are bled for the sustenance of the Master''s vast army.

The future of humankind lies in the hands of a ragtag band of freedom fighters-Dr. Eph Goodweather, former head of the Centers for Disease Control''s biological threats team; Dr. Nora Martinez, a fellow doctor with a talent for dispatching the undead; Vasiliy Fet, the colorful Russian exterminator; and Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master who is bent on revenge. It''s their job to rescue Eph''s son, Zack, and overturn this devastating new world order. But good and evil are malleable terms now, and the Master is most skilled at preying on the weaknesses of humans.

Now, at this critical hour, there is evidence of a traitor in their midst. . . . And only one man holds the answer to the Master''s demise, but is he one who can be trusted with the fate of the world? And who among them will pay the ultimate sacrifice-so that others may be saved?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I liked the first two. This one I can’t say I’m too happy with the ending. I’d have to say at least the mood for the setting and the feeling throughout the book was pretty good. The violence and horror aspect of the book makes the setting have a post apocalyptic feeling so this part of the book was well done too. The background story of Quinlan was also good. Although I can’t help but think the whole angels and Old Testament muck is just that. Muck something much more interesting could have been thought up but no. We have to go back the same past ideas that have been rehashed and reused over and over.  I wasn’t interested in that. On top of that, the romance aspects and that horrible excuse of a love triangle with Eph, Fet and Nora was just terrible and unnecessary.  In fact the majority of the characters in this book just took a downturn for the not so interesting and blah. Eph becomes emo and whiny to the point where reading about him makes you want to cringe. Nora is okay but she suddenly becomes this besotted lovesick twit with Fet and they’re so bloody mismatched it wasn’t worth reading. Let’s not get started on Zack either. Oh my. Did I ever wish he would be choked to death by one of these vampiric beasts. Was he ever a waste of pages.  To top it off, the ending just didn’t do it right for me. When I read that, I nearly wanted to close the book in utter disgust but kept going a little more only to find more snippets of stupid Nora and Fet. Oh for crying out loud, I raved and loved the first two books only to get a real good slap upside the face with this drivel? Most disappointing final book in a series. Ever. This one just took that award by storm. The only thing I liked? was Quinlan and the dark mood that set the setting and feeling for the book. Yet the rest of the characters just killed the story. I only finished it because it’s part of a series and a small part of me wanted to see it until the end. Disappointing, and sad to see it go a great series end this way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ending to Vampire Trilogy “The Night Eternal” is the final book in a trilogy about Vampires taking over the world. This was fun book to read, filled with a lot of action that was straightforward to follow without losing me in a lot of unnecessary descriptions that so many authors fall victim to. I liked this third book much better than the second in the trilogy, which seemed to lose some of the momentum established in the first book. I rarely read anything with the subject matter of Vampires since this new genre of fiction made its way onto the literary scene a few years ago. But this book is harsh and gritty…you won’t find any handsome, romantic Vampires here. The ending of this trilogy is nicely wrapped up….no unanswered questions. I felt the story went from beginning to end in a justified tale that was pure entertainment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted more from it... The final book in The Strain Trilogy. It is not the best book of the trilogy, but it does wrap the series up. The thing I like most about this series is there interputation of vampire lore. I would read a book, just about the mythos of the vampires in this book if Guillermo and Chuck wrote one. I wasn't impressed with the ending of this tale because frankly it was too predictable for me. I could have not read the last hundred pages and still told you what was going to happen. I think if Guillermo and Chuck write anything to further this series as a spin off, it should be about the character Mr. Quinlan in the story, he is definitely a meaty character. If Guillermo does make this series into movies and you've seen any of his movies you'll know who he was picturing for the characters. At the end of the day, this is a decent book and should be read if you've started the series.
