The Strain

The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan is the first of a trilogy that sets the groundwork for a tale that is part medical thriller, part horror, and purely original. They take the vampire genre and inject the terror and bloodletting back into it with a clever history that revolves around a concentration camp in Nazi Germany, but hints at something so much more. Compelling characters, terrifying and unique vampires – especially The Master with his overtones of Dracula. A terrific first installment.
