Sneak Peek Week: The Fall by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan

There isn't much out yet about the second book of The Strain Trilogy, but we thought we'd at least share some cover art and a brief review by Jackie to wet your appetite. The book is set to publish on 9-21-10. That gives you plenty of time to re-read The Strain, though, right? And apparently there is a movie in the making (but of course--del Toro IS a movie maker!).

Jackie's review:
This book is the second in a high-tech vampire
trilogy that began with "The Strain", and it picks up where the last one left off, right smack dab in the middle of plenty of action. New York City is pretty much lost--the vampiric virus is spreading faster than hope can sustain. Even with the complicated help of The Ancients, things are going very, very badly for the human race. It turns out that the Rogue Master vampire who has unleashed this plague has a very specific agenda, and the literal time bombs within that plan are already ticking. The answers lie in a cursed silver plated book, but getting it isn't easy, and understanding it may take too long. It's a thrill ride on every page--dystopia at its vampiric best.
