While this novel certainly is not bad, neither is it really any good. It rises a step above fan fiction, but shallow characters and underwhelming and cliched settings and trappings really drag this novel down.
It certainly adheres to the canon of White Wolf's 'Vampire: The Requiem' game world, but really offers little depth or interest. The fiction printed within the published roleplaying books is FAR better than this novel.
I cannot rate this 2 1/2 stars, so I have to downgrade it. Disappointing in quality and price. If this was fan fiction published on a website, I would rate it 3 or even 3 1/2 stars. As a "professional" novel, a lower rating is deserved.
[2 of 5 Stars!]
