From the Back of the Book:
BOOK OF THE KINDRED is the sourcebook for VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE, created by Mark Rein-Hagen, Co-Producer of TV's KINDRED: THE EMBRACED. It tells the tale of the Kindred from the legends of ancient times to the harsh realities of modern nights. It investigates mysteries and reveals secrets that the darkness would - and might best - keep hidden.
Discover the horror, passion and beauty of the Embrace - and the eternity, lived from dusk till dawn, that comes with it. Discover the truths behind all of the clans, including the Ventrue, Nosferatu, Brujah, Gangrel and Toreador. Know what it means to cast aside your humanity - to frenzy - and let loose the Beast. Come face to face with the Kindred, from the prince of the city to the newly Embraced.
