This is 3 stories in one dealing with White Wolf's new World of Darkness games, Mage the Awakening, Werewolf the Forsaken, and Vampire the Requiem. This is the first story I've read in the new setting and it took me a while to figure out what was missing.The 3 stories are all telling the same story from the 3 points of view, vampires, werewolves and mages. It is fairly cool and interesting in that way but because of that they tended to leave the telling of certain parts for the other stories and sometimes made it difficult to follow. I have actually read the new Vampire rule book so I had some idea about them in the new setting but I haven't done so for either of the other 2 and I noticed lots of explanations seemed to be missing which would have helped fill in things.Overall not bad but not one of White Wolf's best endeavors, and I got the feeling the blame was on the editors. This was the first novel of theirs that I have read which knowledge of the game mechanics where almost required.
