The Vampire Novel Series is set in the World of Darkness - a world disturbingly like our own, yet harsher and darker. In the World of Darkness, our fears are more real. Our governments are more degenerate. Our ecosystem dies a bit more each night. And vampires are real.
This immensely rich setting has been the background for innumerable stories over the last seven years. While no prior knowledge of the setting is necessary, long-time fans of the World of Darkness will find that the Clan Novels are refreshingly true to the original source material. Familiar faces will appear (and disappear forever) and the events herein will permanently alter the course of Vampire: The Masquerade. You will discover wheels within wheels as the schemes of ancient Kindred change the course of history and alter one clan's fate forever.
