A person can't go five feet without running into something vampire-related these days. From Twilight to True Blood, it seems as though the genre is covered. Well, that is where The Strain by Del Toro and Hogan comes in. The story is laid out for the reader slowly, as it all takes place in just a few days, but it reads quickly and I found myself nervously anticipating what would happen next. This is not for the faint at heart as some of the descriptions are quite gory and disgusting. Even though this is the first in what will be a short series, The Strain reads well on its own, but I would recommend reading it with an open mind as some things are not how they often are (without saying too much and ruining anything) in other vampire stories.
