Mientras la enfermedad y la cuarentena empiezan a desparramarse por todo Estados Unidos y el mundo, Eph y Nora identifican el parasito gusano que es el agente infeccioso (ellos son medicos y cientificos especializados en virus infecciosos). Se encuentran atrapados entre las dos facciones en guerra, los Vampiros del Viejo Mundo y los Vampiros del Nuevo Mundo, que luchan para controlar el planeta. Los humanos se han visto desplazados hasta el tope de la cadena alimenticia y ahora comprenden, para su horror, lo que es no ser el consumidor sino... el consumido. Gus suma sus fuerzas a las de los Vampiros para cazar a los de su raza. Grupos humanos arman barricadas contra los agresores que utilizan sobre todo los tuneles del metro para acceder a la ciudad entre el crepusculo y el amanecer. La Vampira Kelly continua sus intentos para quedarse con Zack (hijo de ella y de Eph), mientras el consume todas sus energias en la batalla total contra la corrupcion de la humanidad. Eph ahora esta bebiendo alcohol en grandes cantidades e intenta aprender lo mas posible sobre las tradiciones de los vampiros en los libros y las notas que dejo Setrakian. Los origenes biblicos de los Antiguos empiezan a ser revelados. No hay discusion entre ellos y uno incluso da a conocer lo que sabe a las hordas del Master. Eph se da cuenta de que les espera un plan mas grande, mas terrible para la raza humana, incluso peor que la aniquilacion. Intenta detener el arriesgado plan del gobierno de lanzar un ataque para destruir a los vampiros, que el cree que es una trampa, y al fallar, se oculta literalmente bajo tierra con su hijo mientras las bombas detonan alrededor del mundo. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The second installment in the New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with The Strain--about an invasion of vampires--by one of Hollywood's most popular and imaginative storytellers, the creator of the Oscar-winning Pan's Labyrinth. The vampiric virus unleashed in The Strain has taken over New York City. It is spreading across the country and soon, the world. Amid the chaos, Eph Goodweather, head of the CDC's team and one of a small group who have banded together to fight the bloodthirsty monsters that roam the streets, finally manages to identify the parasite that causes the infection. But it may be too late. Ignited by the Master's horrific plan, a war erupts between Old and New World Vampires, each side vying for control of the planet. As the virus continues to plague the land, humans find themselves caught in the middle of the conflict . . . and at the bottom of the food chain. They are no longer the consumers, but the consumed. At the same time, the battle finds its way inside Eph's own home: his ex-wife, Kelly, who was turned by the Master, has her sights fixed on Zack, Eph's son. With the future of the world in the balance, Eph and his team of fighters must use all their skills as well as Holocaust survivor and former professor Abraham Setrakian's intimate knowledge of the enemy to combat a terror whose ultimate plan is more terrible than the humans at first imagined-a fate worse than annihilation.
