A good effort, and one that throws a surprising amount of depth and history toward a 'covenant' that otherwise is/was a bit one dimensional. Gone are the days when the Brood were just a bunch of random nuts that could conveniently pop up to imperil the masquerade and force a physical climax to a story. Instead, they remain fairly evil creatures - but like any good villain, fairly evil creatures who believe that they have a legitimate position to defend. A good mix of mechanical tweaks and narrative background and one that lends a significant depth and plausible motivation to what has otherwise been a largely one-dimensional vampiric villian.
