The Fall (Large Print / Paperback)
October 2010 Indie Next List
“This book, the second in the high-tech vampire trilogy that began with The Strain, picks up where the last one left off. New York City is lost as the vampire 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. The Rogue Master vampire who 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.”
