The final volume in "The Strain" trilogy is a satisfying conclusion, if not quite as compelling as the other books. Currently a show on FX.

Strong end to trilogy, an enjoyable read.

Had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through just about. All in all a satisfying ending for the most part. Kept me interested through out. Storyline was very intriguing with the origins of the born and master revealed. The bond between Eph's son and the master was a good twist. Unpredictable ending does not disappoint.

I really tried to like this series but now that I have finished it I have to say it basically is just another vampire story. I didn't even really find the story that engaging.

Slightly worse than the previous books in the Fall series. But good to see the storyline completed.

I love this trilogy, and this book is worthy of the other two. I still love the first one the best, but the subsequent two have kept me rapt, not wanting to put it down. I love the introduction of new characters, even at this late date, and I adore the way this author / these authors - write. Satisfying reading, definitely feeds my love of post-apocalypse fiction as well as some pseudo-zombie (vampires, but kind of alien vampires, not the traditional, and certainly NOT sparkly) vampire action. I love this book!!!

This is the last and by far the best book in this vampire trilogy. I neither loved nor hated the previous 2 books in the series and truth be told, I basically read this book because the e-book was available to borrow and I felt compelled to finish the series. I initially picked up the first book because I am fond of Guillermo del Toro's movie "Pan's Labyrinth". He undoubtedly has a vivid imagination and although it was fun reading a vampire book set in New York City (with the bulk of it taking place in Manhattan) I think I must be over the whole "vampire thing". The characters were so-so and a bit cliched and to paraphrase another reviewer on this page, this book (and series) was pretty boring. The dialog was a bit too...cinematic (for lack of a better word). The dialog reads like movie dialog and the whole series feels like a book that knows it's going to be made into a movie one day. All in all "Night Eternal" was a satisfying conclusion to a pretty average trilogy. If you like vampire stories, give it a try. If you're looking for a new and exciting take on the 'ole vampire tale, you may want to look elsewhere.

The first book was the best for sure, but the other two definitely kept my interest right to the end.
I agree the ending was a bit rushed and wished it had ended a bit differently.
But overall, I really enjoyed the series!

I liked "Night Eternal" more then the 2nd book, "The Fall". This one takes place a bit in the future after "The Fall" so that changes the setting, pace and mood from the first two books which I liked. Overall, I loved this series and the 3rd book does a good job ending the story. Since the old vampire hunter guy isn't in this one, I cared a bit less about some of the other characters and Eph becomes pretty insufferable too. But good action, a cool premise, and some scary scenes. Worth reading for fans of Stephen King and the like. Start with "The Strain" obviously.

It wasn't as captivating as the first book, but it had some good character development stories. I really enjoyed The Born and his involvement with the group. The rest of the book dragged on for a bit and had some predictable moments, but all in all, its worth a read to finish the series.

Violence: If you've read the last two books then you know what to expect: Graphic fights between vampires and humans and other disturbing depictions.
