Not really sure why I like these books as much as I do But I think it is becuse it feels like you dip your toes into something much bigger which you are, as the Vampire rpg has a LOAD of books on background And I also really like the vampire history in this world and its realism If you have the possibility to live forever and is a greedy son of a bitch, you plan very far ahead You do not spend your time like some vampires I can talk to you about Its a shame that Weinberg basically copy paste this plot on his books in the Mage universe But that is no fault on these books. This is not really a novel, but a role playing game narrative and not a great one at that There s a funny undercurrent of social criticism, however, for which the points.

I ve never tried to read a book set in a pre existing role playing world before, so I apologise to this author if there is a quota of game stuff he had to include and this is normal, but my main problem with this book was the barely disguised info dumps The book started with one character telling another the introduction to Vampire The Masquerade I guess if you d never role played the game this would be necessary, but it nearly stopped me reading further, it was BORING.To be fair, the book improved after that, but there were still moments where the plot and characterisation stopped while the author explained something about the World of Darkness, or what a Clan was The balance is obviously tricky and overall the book scraped 3 stars because I liked the characters and it was quite fun, plus it reminded me of role playing, but I m not sure I d recommend it. Book 1 of the Masquerade of the Red Death trilogy.This book was lent to me years ago and I finished all three in two days, if that says anything These books are set in White Wolf s world of Vampire the Masquerade, which is a terribly interesting place to begin with, and which is probably why I found these so delicious to read They were a great introduction to the World of Darkness for me, with a nice view of many clans all at once I think a couple clans didn t make it in here, like the Salburi, but with so many clans, I think Weinberg did a great job with what he did.Likable characters, compelling storyline Maybe not the best vampire trilogy ever, but it caught and held my attention Definitely entertaining if one enjoys VtM.These books are out of print, so if you are interested in reading and happen to find them, best snatch them up asap. Al servicio de la mercadotecnia de White Wolf durante su apogeo G nero Narrativa fant stica Lo que nos cuenta A comienzo de los a os noventa, y tras un breve pr logo en Roma, viajamos a la capital de Misuri donde vive McCaan, un detective privado que conoce la existencia de los vampiros y suele trabajar para ellos En un mismo d a sufre un peligroso atentado, recibe correspondencia con extra a informaci n sobre sucesos en diferentes lugares del mundo y recibe una inquietante llamada en la se dirigen a l con el nombre de Lameth y le advierten que tenga cuidado con la Muerte Roja Primer libro de la trilog a La mascarada de la Muerte Roja Quiere saber m s de este libro, sin spoilers Visite Not sure how many times I have read this book but every time I have thoroughly enjoyed it While the book and its sequels are based upon a role playing game you do not have be a participant in it to read and enjoy The beginning of the book contains enough information to bring you up to speed on what you need to know, and also serves as an interesting introduction to one of the or less main characters.Bloodwar can be considered to be either a mystery or a horror novel as it has elements of both Of course we are left with myriad questions at the end of it but then there are two books to read so that is not really surprising All in all a pretty good read and one of my favourites.
