The themes of this clan come through crystal clear in this book,as Ventrue did not manage to do. The major theme is love. Are the Daeva capable of inspiring and feeling true love, or are they dead hearts manipulating human erotic programming? Does the past matter, or is the present all there is? It's basically a hundred pages of Daeva showing the choices they make, and how these shape their Requiems. The writing is generally excellent, although the movie script is deliberately written in an over-blown style that almost overshadows what it shows.
The artwork also works to show the Daeva off. On the White Wolf forums, their Q&A about this book explicitly states that the artwork was intended to treat the Daeva as sex objects. It works. We view them as sex objects ... and they view us as blood banks. Both may get what they want, but we end up dead as a result. That's what the art shows even before you get to the text.
Technically, the only books you need to read to follow this are the corebooks. Obviously, you will get much more from it the more Vampire books you have read. However, there are so many ties to the Ventrue Clan Book that I think you would have to read it in addition to this for this to have full value. This book also seems to tie in with the upcoming Hunter: the Vigil, too.Read more ›
As a source book the game fails. It only contains a few pages comparatively that actually pertains to game play. From rules to bloodlines to new disciplines and devotions. But these rules are just the icing on the cake. The appendix to the real valuable information.
This book is about the Daeva clan. Not in game rules. Not supplementary game play mechanics. But about the vampires of this clan. The writings in this book, the short stories, the collections of past history, are of the highest caliber of Pen & Paper 'fluff' as some would call it, I have ever seen.
What this book does is give an incredibly powerful and intimate view of the clans history, their current struggles and daily life. It's less a book the games ST would need for rules, and much more about how the Daeva 'live' and how they spend their nights. The information within can be invaluable to any player wishing to flesh out their Daeva character or getting some insight on the mood and feel of the Daeva clan.
Everyone knows, (or should know), that Mood and Theme are amongst the most important mechanics in any World of Darkness game. The Daeva 'clan book' exudes more Mood and sets such a dark and horrifying Theme I've ever seen in any World of Darkness book I own. The writing is simply amazing and can help you 'feel' your Daeva on a level you could never imagine.
When I first picked this up I had seen mixed reviews, and just simply after the first story, entitled Kevin, drew me into the world of the Daeva and wouldn't let me go.Read more ›
Not my favorite by any means, but still pretty good as a story (not rules) supplement.

First of all, I must say that the artwork and graphic design is supurb. Unfortunately beyond the physical appearance of the book there is little to appreciate. Read morePublished on July 9, 2008 by J Smith
