One of the nicest vtes clan and book. Full review here One of the best books from this whole set.I am blogging the reviews to this whole series.It starts here I quite enjoyed this book because the Lasombra Clan have a lot of potential as interesting bad guys Richard did a good job capitalizing on the clans strengths, and presenting them as villains you can respect and dislike at the same time. Rese a completa en mi blog parte de la historia abarca cronol gicamente eventos de la novela anterior, pero vistos desde el otro punto de vista Aqu , en lugar de los tejes y manejes Ventrue, se ven las dificultades del Sabbat para trabajar en equipo sin matarse entre ellos, o mejor dicho, como mantener las bajas al m nimo para no echar a perder la misi n Hay mucha acci n, y cap tulos atrapantes Pero el autor cometi lo que para mi es un error imperdonable, y es que parece que no ha le do las novelas anteriores, deformando la personalidad de algunos personajes, sobre todo de uno de los Arzobipos Lasombra Borges En el segundo libro de la saga, Borges es nombrado siempre como el Honorable Borges y todos lo respetan, m s all de si conf an o no en l Su aspecto es de un viejo y se mueve como un viejo En resumidas cuentas, casi con total seguridad est basado en Jorge Luis Borges, notable escritor argentino Pero aqu nos encontramos con un Borges caprichoso, atolondrado, sin control de su ira, que se deja manipular f cilmente Adem s, posee agilidad y fuerzas sobrehumanas m s all de sus poderes Lasombra Es una est pida m quina de matar y meterse en aprietos, muy lejos del honorable Borges que se hab a presentado Este tipo de errores siempre son una posibilidad en sagas que cuentan con m s de un autor, pero no es una excusa Me molest tanto que un personaje tan enigm tico e interesante haya sido arruinado de esta manera, que le baj un punto a mi opini n general del libro.
I m halfway through the series now, and I feel perfectly okay with saying that this series maintains its momentum if not increases its momentum as it goes along Really enjoying it, as well as the fact that these books are short enough that it s possible to read one in about a day. Siguiendo con la trama Camarilla Vs Sabbat, la novela del Clan Lasombra sigue los pasos de Lucita, una asesina completamente certera y profesional Este libro es bueno, pero no llega a ser tan bueno como por ejemplo el del Clan Ventrue o la hermosa novela del Clan Setita aunque no falta la acci n, de eso hay bastante Seguir conociendo como se maneja el Sabbat es demasiado genial, en todos mis a os de jugar Vampiro La Mascarada nunca me hice una idea clara de como se comportaban, pero gracias a est novela logre despejar aquellas dudas El libro solo se ve eclipsado por un error y es el comportamiento de uno de los lideres y me refiero al Arzobispo Borges Cuando una serie de novelas no son escritas por un solo Autor es obvio que en alg n momento habr errores, pero lastima que eso haya casi arruinado est novela Borges es alguien al que se refieren como honorable present ndose siempre con su parche de sombras sobre su rostro, ocult ndolo y d ndole un aura de terror, es alguien calmado que no cae en arrogancia y dando renombre de ser alguien calculador, es decir, el Borges que vimos en la Novela de Clan Tzimice Aqu , desgraciadamente es solo un mat n de turno, siempre dej ndose llevar por la ira y su sed de sangre desenfrenada La novela es bastante atrapadora y f cil de leer, lastima ese error, pero igual muy recomendada D This is a fantastic series if you are a fan or player of the Vampire the Masquerade Table Top game I gave it a 3 because I don t recomend this series to those who are not. is the sixth novel in the Clan Novel series that began with TOREADOR and will continue until it reaches thirteen volumes with a bonus anthology It is the trademark series of Vampire The Masquerade and was written roughly between the end of 2nd Edition and the beginning of its Revised Gehenna, the apocalypse of vampires, is nigh with a war being fought between both the Camarilla evil vampires and the Sabbat eviller vampires.The books were originally published in 1999 but have since been reprinted by Crossroad Press as part of a deal with Paradox Interactive new owner of the White World roleplaying game company This was my favorite of the books originally but my tastes have changed a bit in twenty years Some things I enjoyed about the book earlier like the action are now less important than the character building while I now wish for focus the lead s motivations Something I feel this book was a bit lacking on.Lasombra features the arguably most popular of all Vampire The Masquerade characters, Lucita of Aragon A literal Spanish Princess from the Dark Ages, Lucita was Embraced by her disgusting sire Moncada in order to satisfy his lusts Moncada was a holy churchman as well as a vampire and Lucita found herself rebelling against him as both sire as well as spiritual leader Centuries later, she earns her living as a paid assassin of the undead.Lucita is hired by a mysterious employer possibly multiple mysterious employers who wishes her to kill a number of high ranking Lasombra agents crucial to the military efforts of the Sabbat She is also supposed to kill one of the three Archbishops that will cripple the invasion of the East Coast by her clan Lucita has no loyalty to either her Clan or the Sabbat and mostly just wants to collect her expensive fee.Much of the book is devoted to the lengths the Camarilla is willing to take to slow the Sabbat s advance on Balti They start abandoning their less valuable cities, mass Embracing cannon fodder and leaving them to die despite this being against their cardinal beliefs Theo Bell and the Princes are utterly unrepentant about this, considering their victory worth any costs They also move away anyone important among their kind.On the Sabbat side of things, we follow an ambitious young Pack Leader named MacEllen who is eager to prove himself as a potential leader of the sect by completing impossible orders MacEllen believes he s being sent to his death, unaware the Sabbat is aware of all the Camarilla s secret movements due to a secret Lasombra among their ranks The most important character in the book, even than Lucita in some ways, is Talley the Hound who is the Sabbat s greatest assassin and reluctantly assigned to stop but not kill Lucita This is on the order of Moncada, her lecherous and vile sire who is now a high ranking member of the Sabbat.If the story sounds convoluted, it really isn t as it progresses from point to point and allows you to soak up in the complicated power games between the two sects In many ways, it is a much Jyhad esque what vampires call their political games before the word would become uncomfortable to use due to the War on Terror than the Ventrue Clan novel Games within games, wheels within wheels.There s some really good moments spread throughout the book like a young Nosferatu Neonate s giddiness at the opportunity to Embrace and torture a dozen handsome young men like the kind she used to hang out with, Talley s world weariness at having to deal with so many idiots in the Sabbat heirarchy, and Moncada s depraved paternalism to Lucita despite how thoroughly she s rejected him This is in between some really well written action sequences that incorporate vampire Disciplines, emotion, and twists.Unfortunately, the biggest weakness of the book is Lucita herself For a character so beloved, she spends most of the book in a state of perpetual anger and disdain for everyone around her There s not much character development for her and while she does a large number of impressive stunts, we don t get much of her character other than, Don t piss her off Talley, her opponent, actually gets the meat of the character development.Lasombra is an okay installment in the series but not up there with Setite or Gangrel Both of those books heavily focused on the character development of its protagonists Even Ventrue had a lot insight into who its main character was Lucita mostly remains a mystery but she sure does look cool killing people. ^DOWNLOAD EPUB ↡ Lasombra (Vampire: The Masquerade: Clan Novel, #6) ⇯ The Lasombra Are Known Primarily For Ruling The Fractious Sabbat The Assamites Are Known Primarily
