For days, smoke, steam, and the plaintive cries of the dying issued from the hole.

From ground level, it looked as if someone had built a new opening to hell. Norwegian authorities wisely stayed far away. The few travelers who noticed the smoke from the highway and tried to approach were dissuaded by the immediate stink of death, the electric madness that coursed through the air and set their teeth on edge and made their hair stand up, even the sight of the occasional filthy survivor, with matted hair and ragged clothes and open wounds.

Everywhere was blood, blood, blood.

So nobody bore witness to the ones who pushed through the wall of stench.

They drove as far as they could on a road made impassable by heavy snow, then got out and walked, carrying their equipment and supplies.

Approaching the hole, their booted feet broke through red snow. They stood at the holeÕs rim for a while, shoveling through snow and debris, talking about the sight in soft voices, making notes, one taking digital photographs to document the scene. They swallowed hard, chuckled, patted each otherÕs shoulders with gloved hands, and stamped their feet against the coldÑwhatever it took to remind them that they were still upright, their bodies more or less whole, and that they wouldnÕt see anyone like themselves inside the gaping pit.

Then they went inside.

I loved it, the story was one I could barely put down. I was disappointed when it ended because it left me wondering what was next and I can't wait to read more.

I really enjoyed this sequel to 30 DAYS OF NIGHT. It kept me reading past my bed time. Creepy! I would've given it 5 stars if the main chatacter hadn't kept doing stupid, suicidal things. It was slightly unbelievable...Kinda like when you're watching a horror flick and one of the characters decides to split everyone up and go "find out what that noice was". You want to yell at them for being so dense. For an FBI agent, Andy Gray sure seemed in total denial, despite the facts before him.

I was prepared to really enjoy this book, but instead found myself totally underwhelmed. Whereas the movie (and, I figured, the book)focuses on what happens to the town of Barrow, Alaska, this book puts that incident in the background and instead focuses on FBI Special Agent Andy Gray.

Based some time after those events in Barrow, Andy is trying to figure out exactly what happend to his partner, Paul. He spends a lot of time going back and forth with himself (Is Paul a vampire? There's no such thing as vampires. Is Paul a member of the blood-sucking undead? There's no such thing as the blood-sucking undead.) until I was ready to scream.

Although there are slightly enjoyable parts to the book, the majority of those center around Stella Olemaun, a survivor from Barrow who wrote a book about the events that happened there.

I'm going to pass on picking up the other books in the series, unless I can find one that starts out as good as the prologue of this book, which dealt exclusively with Barrow, Alaska, and its residents.

i havent read any of the 30 days of nights graphic novels when i picked this book up , so ur good to go if u have no idea wats goin on. an fbi agents partner is turned into the 'undead' from a mystery woman. so his partner andy gray goes on a massive and frantic search across the country to find and take revenge on his partner. his search leads him back to where all the events in the graphic novels took place, Barrow, Alaska. this book is a great vampire book, its more of the modern side of the vampire tales.meaning no garlic, stakes and such. so its a great horror and suspense book all around. get it.

This is a reprint of 30 Days of Night Dark Days. Is this an error or have I been fooled into buying the same book twice? I want a refund or a copy of the described book!

This book flipping blew chunks. At first i was like this book is going to be good but with every page turn that hope went down. This book could of been made of win but it is made of fail. The only use i found for it is toilet paper but its not that great for that even
