Editorial Reviews

VOYA
A klatch of vampires descend upon Barrow, Alaska, where a month of Arctic darkness promises all the opportunity they will need to feast on the small town's unfortunate residents. This terrifying premise sets the stage for a story of heroism in the face of horrifying circumstances, as the town's husband-and-wife law enforcement team tries to survive the onslaught. Black, white, red, and fangs (oh so many fangs) dominate the chilly landscape created by illustrator Templesmith. With its random and explosive acts of violence, this book puts the "graphic" in graphic novel and evokes such classic horror movies as Alien and The Thing, a treat for fans of the genre but a real stomach-turner for the timid. Although this reviewer might quibble with the book's lack of character development and its abrupt dispatch of an interesting subplot, few teen readers will share such objections, especially when faced with the heartbreaking conclusion. Originally a three-comic run, the book adds author and illustrator bios and a partial script, a bonus for fans and aspiring comic writers alike. Not for the fainthearted, this novel in graphic format pushes boundaries and buttons and propels its author into the limelight with the power of its brutal vision. VOYA CODES: 4Q 5P S A/YA G (Better than most, marred only by occasional lapses; Every YA (who reads) was dying to read it yesterday; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12; Adult and Young Adult~G). 2003, Idea and Design Works, G104p,

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.

Afer reading the first two of 30 days of night. I was so excited to read this one. I was dying to know what happen afer reading dark days. And this one was going to tell us. The drawing more vivid then the other books. However, Stella and other character looked a lot alike, so I would get confuse on who is who. I was very disappointed on plot. I didn¿t see much of Eben and Stella. I was done with the comic within a day. I was hoping that it will get better but it kept getting boring.

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!
