9. The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan Strain

Summary: In the near future in New York City, a plane lands at JFK Airport and immediately everything shuts down. Teams of people are brought in to investigate the mysterious death of all but four people on the international flight from Germany. One man, Dr. Eph Goodweather, and his partner, Nora Martinez, work for the CDC and are in charge of the case for the time being. They investigate by the books only to find out that this is not a textbook case at all. Vampires have come to the United States and the Master is here to wipe out everyone within the country.

Review: I really enjoyed this book. It kept me on my toes and it was creepy, which I love in a book. I'm also a huge vampire fan and this took them away from the ideas in my head of the classy blood drinkers from other worlds like Dracula and the Anita Blake series. I can't wait for book two and I hope it's just as good.
