Ah, so we come to the end of “The Strain” trilogy!

I don’t think the pacing of the 2nd and 3rd book in the series matches the 1st by a long, shot, but the story is still pretty compelling. This story begins two years after the end of the last book, and the vampires are now in charge of most of the world.

Eph has been on a downward spiral since losing his son Zach in the previous book. Zach is in the custody of The Master, who is grooming him as a host (his transformation from a regular kid to a vampire-sympathizer is pretty interesting). The crew (Eph, Nora, Fet, Gus and the half-vampire Quinlan) are all still fighting the good fight, and with a little divine intervention and guidance from the Occido Lumen, they even have a chance to rid the world of The Master, and all subsequent vampires for good. There is also some backstory on how the vampires came to be which is particularly fascinating. I while slow at times, I still enjoyed the book and felt it wrapped up the trilogy nicely.

I listened this audio version in my car. The narrator did an okay job, but could be a bit sleepy at times.
