A plane lands at JFK and mysteriously 'goes dark', stopping in the middle of the runway for no apparent reason, all lights off, all doors sealed. The pilots cannot be raised. When the hatch above the wing finally clicks open, it quickly becomes clear that everyone on board is dead - although there is no sign of any trauma or struggle. Ephraim Goodweather and his team from the Center for Disease Control must work quickly to establish the cause of this strange ocurrence before panic spreads.
The first thing they discover is that four of the victims are actually still alive. But that's the only good news. And when all 200 corpses disappear from various morgues around the city on the same night, things very rapidly get worse. Soon Eph and a small band of helpers will find themselves battling to protect not only their own loved ones, but the whole city, against an ancient threat to humanity.

Vampire infestation breeds ennui

Overall, "The Strain" suffers from bad phrasing, having been dragged out to create a trilogy, and from lack of originality, structure, pace, plot, and logic. Some scenes are gripping, more range between tedious and annoying. Everything is by far too predictable, vampire attacks soon become repetitive, characters are shallow, stereotypical, trivial. After finishing book one, I am not even curios enough to want to find out what happens in the second volume.

Werde die restlichen Teile der Trilogie nicht lesen

Anfangs wirklich sehr spannend und sphärisch, zum Schluss hin doch sehr vorhersehbar. Wirklich toll gestartet bloß leider -- so finde ich -- können die Autoren das Niveau nicht halten. Werde mir die restlichen Titel der Trilogie nicht holen.
