“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Here’s what I’m waiting on this Wednesday:
♡ Title: “The Night Eternal (The Strain #3)”
♡ Author: Chuck Hogan & Guillermo del Toro
♡ Release Date: October 25, 2011 (North America), September 1, 2011 (UK)
♡ Publisher: HarperCollins
♡ Synopsis: The nail-biting conclusion to The Strain Trilogy, from the world-famous director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Hellboy.The night belongs to them, and it will be a night eternal…After the blasts, it was all over. Nuclear Winter has settled upon the earth. Except for one hour of sunlight a day, the whole world is plunged into darkness. It is a near-perfect environment for vampires. They have won. It is their time.Almost every single man, woman and child has been enslaved in vast camps across the globe. Like animals, they are farmed, harvested for the sick pleasure of the Master Race.Almost, but not all. Somewhere out there, hiding for their lives, is a desperate network of free humans, continue the seemingly hopeless resistance. Everyday people, with no other options – among them Dr Ephraim Goodweather, his son Zack, the veteran exterminator Vassily, and former gangbanger Gus.To be free, they need a miracle, they need divine intervention. But Salvation can be a twisted game – one in which they may be played like pawns in a battle of Good and Evil. And at what cost…?
♡ Why?: I’ve been waiting for the conclusion of this trilogy since I read the second book last year, and it sounds glorious. Combining epidemiology, virii, vampires, and dystopia? And of course, it has del Toro’s name on it, so it’s not like I can resist that, either. I don’t know how many years this is supposed to take place after the second book but I still can’t wait to sink my teeth into it. No pun intended.
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
