Boring. Your average vampire fiction, with a tiny variation in its writing style. I've 'seen' many vampires, and I'm usually sided with the hunters. So, of course I can't say I like this book. Creatures which often need to slaughter human to survive can't be good, at least from the human perspective. And I'm a human.
Written in somewhat Encyclopedia-like book (not really), which is unique. However, I don't find anything different, much less new, in the contents. Sunlight resistance, super-human abilities, immunity to holy objects, justification in crimes... That's the typical vampires after 'Twilight'. Don't expect a 'millenial creatures', which actually think and act like they have spent millions of years on Earth, here.
The small plots are so-and-so and Hectar is just your average vampire (not the oldest, wisest and perhaps among the coolest of vampires).

This book is the BEST book I have ever read that depicts vampires exactly how I see them, and in a way that is perfect. I am a story teller for a game known as Vampires of the Masquerade, and this book perfectly describes all the aspects of the vampires that normally take me many days of game play to explain to players. To note it is placed in the form of an enthralling story that I wait eagerly for the next book this writer will produce. Like I said, this is the only writer that has depicted vampires exactly the way I see them, the only way they make since.
