Toreador

D the list of schemers doesn't end there Can you say Antediluvian Each novel in the series focuses on a member of one of the 13 vampire clans Clan Novel Toreador sets events into motion with Victoria Ash a high ranking Camarilla manipulator who turns plots assassinations and wars to her advantag. Real rating is fluctuating between 35 and 4I am rereading this book I I think read it when it first came out during the days of the Old World of Darkness game systems heydayI m not uite sure how entertaining this book would be to someone who has not played the games I have the feeling that it would be easy for someone who doesn t know the world already to get lost in the novelThere is a lot of explanation throughout the book in an attempt to clue in the casual reader To someone who has played the games though this might drag the story down To me some of the inclusions of game lore seemed a little gratuitous and was distractingI m a bit of a loss of how to proceed from here I want to finally read the whole series but am having trouble finding some of the partsWhite Wolf released collections of the novels there is 13 in all and rearranged them They basically took all 13 novels and dissected them and put them back together in chronological order I have read mixed reviews on thisAlso I am a reading challenge whore and look at that as the difference between reading 13 books and 4 books toward my goal P

review Toreador

Smallest detail to the grandest marvel The Nosferatu's apparent scheme to put the Eye of Hazimel into the hands of the Setite Vegel will decide the fates of Kindred legions and will determine the future of the Camarilla and Sabbat the sects engaged in a massive war along the entire East Coast An. I really like the idea of The Masuerade and all the different personality sets there are for the vampires This was an awesome start to the series and I loved how it follows one person from the clan but gives and over all storyline

The World of Darkness Exposed It begins with Clan Novel Toreador but this novel is just the beginning of a 13 book series dedicated to the Kindred It's the biggest event in World of Darkness history This epic series of over one million words will reveal the secrets of this hidden world from the. This was an interesting reading experience The whole novel takes place in one night or so and the story does pack a lot into that one night Though we are mostly following Victoria Ash and Leopold the story moves back and forth between other characters all with their different schemes and motivations If you like dark fiction with a lot of intrigue and machinations then this book is for you because the vampires of The Masuerade known as the Kindred pretty much live to pursue Machiavellian plots Our main characters are members of the Toreador Clan which are artists so you also get a lot of descriptions related to the art crafts specially sculpture which is what Leopold does I think I particularly enjoyed this novel at this point in time because it presents vampires as they should be scary powerful ruthless In other words these are not the wimpy sissy vampires a lot of paranormal romances and urban fantasies seem to favor these days These are not nice vampires even when they are at their most seductive The novel has a pretty strong dark tone overall that works nicely It does leave you with a cliffhanger leading to the next novel which I will be sure to try and find It looks like the plot will thicken but I will have to wait for the next books to find out

    It was a very long book It took me at least half a month to finish it I can't say I hated it though I was extremely upset and pleased at the same time as soon as I read the final pages of the last few chaptersThe idea of vampires in this novel pushed me into a whole new world I got so far in that actually forgot

    I'll start off by saying that this is not by any means a bad book The only other Old World of Darkness books I've read was The Horizon War trilogy which draws mostly on Mage The Ascension my preferred game material For the record my approach to reviewing books is to not only review how good I thought the story w
