It’s been two years since the vampiric virus was unleashed in The Strain and the entire world now lies on the brink of annihilation. There has been a mass extermination of humans orchestrated by the Master - an ancient vampire possessed of unparalleled powers. The future of humankind lies in the hands of a ragtag band of freedom fighters - Dr. Eph Goodweather, Dr. Nora Martinez, Vasiliy Fet, and Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master who is bent on revenge. It’s their job to overturn this devastating new world order.
I really like the first novel, the second failing to meet its predecessor's greatness but still very good, then the third one was bought. It became silly and lost the magic of the previous two. I wish they would have gone in a different direction.
Last week they invaded Manhattan. This week they will destroy the world. The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading and soon will envelop the globe. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather - head of the Centers for Disease Control's team - leads a band out to stop these bloodthirsty monsters. But it may be too late.
Dark and gritty. I don't know what else to say except these books keep me spiraling down. If you like real vampire books, then this is for you.
A heartwarming tale of terror in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. Meet Sarah and David. Once upon a time, they met and fell in love. But now they’re on the verge of divorce and going to couples’ counseling. On a routine trip to their counselor, they notice a few odd things: the lack of cars on the highway, the missing security guard, and the fact that their counselor, Dr. Kelly, is ripping out her previous client’s throat. Meet the zombies....
I got this on a whim because I had an extra credit during my account. I'm really glad I did. It's cute, well written and well, if you're married...you understand where they're coming from.

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I was really interested in this book when I saw it but I author has begun to lime his loegend a little too much. He keeps saying how humble he is then goes into an ego driven lecture about his feats. It was a little too much.
Would you recommend American Sniper to your friends? Why or why not?
I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. If you ant to read about SEALS, then listen to LONE SURVIVOR.
Was American Sniper worth the listening time?
I got bored with it and shelfed it twice before finishing it.
