For a change this is very much one character’s tale. Ramona is a second year Gangrel, member of a tribe that is more independent than Camarilla, but less dark minded than the Sabbat. They are the wild hunters of claj vampire worlds, often used by the elders for enforcement. Ramona has never really bought into the vampire ethos, and is locked in a perpetual struggle with her beast.
Her relationships with mortals and kindred are troubled. Now, her feelings for young Zhavon will drive her to finally face what she has become, at the same time that the bring her to the brink of destruction. For the Eye of Hazimel, a true instrument of chaos, is loose in the city. Now the possession of the sculptor Leopold, the eye has little patience with vampire sensibilities.
Clanbook: Gangrel Revised
It brings insanity and ruin, and has an agenda all it’s own. As gagrel elders and clans struggle with events leading to a mysterious confrontation bbook Table Rock, Ramona must find a way to survive. In something of a turn-about Gherbod Fleming, a long time maker of the Masquerade world, produces an enjoyable action novel. His insights into the life of the Gangrel, on of the games most troubled clan are unique. He is in tune with the grim realities of vampire life, where nothing can be trusted in the night, and sensitivity to the real nobility behind and outlaw clan give this book much of its depth.
Of course, the underlying style is still game-centric, where the novels serve the cllan. This means the story often makes jagged progress or gets lost in heavy detail. Flemings characters also tend to muse more often than they drink. But this is one of this series better efforts, offering a vision that will challenge many fans.
I guess some people are not into reading about weak vampires or new ones. Romana does not just suddenly know that stakes will paralyze her or that she can sink gangerl the earth. The character is very real and well thought out. The only reason I rate the book 4 instead of 5 is because I felt that Leopold’s description and his changes needs to be clearer. Got one of those Goth type friends who really gangreel to be a vampire?
Want to annoy them? This has to be one of the grimmer, most discouraging portrayals of vampiric existence I have ever read.
A problem with this type of book is that the larger sweep of the action may seem to have come to an abrupt halt. Because of the tight focus, it’s often difficult to recognize at first that the more dramatic events in these books may have significance for the series as a whole. The strengths of the more character driven books ganrgel the series are that these books stand alone better you don’t have to know gangerl care what’s happening in the series generally in order to appreciate the story Here, the main character, Ramona, is a Gangrel neonate who has been abandoned by her sire to fend for herself and learn the realities of vampiric existence in the process.
It tells the story of her struggle with her lost humanity and just to survive. A problem with books in this series is that they can get so caught up with sect politics that they lose track of the harsh realities of more basic things like feeding.
Sometimes, it almost seems that the characters might just as well not be vampires but some other sort of powerful, scheming supernatural being.
The more character driven books, because of their clearer focus, tend to do a much better job of emphasizing the title clan.
This books also deals with Ramona’s first encounter with her sire since her Embrace and her first encounter with other members of her clan. The justicar Xaviar even puts in an apprearance as do many other interesting Gangrel characters. Overall, it’s a somber but fascinating portrait of the Gangrel and their culture. The Gangrel aren’t lay about philosphers, so there’s plenty of action as well. Well, it’s about time there is a book in this silly series about the clan that it’s actually titled for.
While I’ll admit that what has been done with the character Leopold is extremely obtuse, I think the characters, like Ramona and Jen, maintained an amount of realism considering the genre.
You won’t find in these characters what I refer to as the “Caine complex” that White Wolf does a lot with characters in their stories. Overall well written and fairly enthralling. I think that this is the first book in this series that I haven’t wanted to skip pages in just to get to the end.
One person found this helpful. Here’s a book that talks about a group of the weakest vampires in the series. One doesn’t believe she’s a vampire. All are 2 years old as undead. Ramona is a totally forgettable character. And she’s on every page. All the gangrel in the New York state area die from a vampire that makes the ground shoot up stalagtites. This is a stupid book that doesn’t do the Gangrel justice. Only one chapter was interesting But it’s not enough.
