||Whilst Blood Sorcery might be a great book for some, it wasn't for me.
Throughout the reviews there seems to be this comparison to V:tM or Mage.
Whilst these comparisons are true I think that this theme detracts from both Crúac and Theban.
They becomes two sides of the same coin, as opposed to fundamentally different things.
As opposed to further exploring the background of both White Wolf has decided to create different rule sets for both.
Honestly this wasn't the book I was looking for.
Threnodies would have been an alright theme if it didn't seem like it was stepping on the toes of Crúac all the time.
The Antagonists were good.
Art was excellent however would have done with some more for the Lancea Sanctum. Too much blood sacrifice not enough prayer. (Again, blurring the line between the two sorcery themes.
The narrative didn't really have a strong hook.
