A Race Against Armageddon

For millennia, vampires have fed on the living, hidden in the shadows of mortal society. Legends say the undead descend from Caine, the first murderer portrayed in the Bible, who passed on his curse through his blood. Those same legends speak of a final reckoning, when Caine and his mad children will rise from slumber and consume all the undead.

Shelves: rpg
I read this novel for two simple reasons: one, the writer is an acquaintance I met through my freelancing for roleplaying games; two, I have been playing Vampire: The Masquerade since 1992 and I wanted to know how it all ended.

The novel relates the story of the days leading to the Final Night for all vampires, the so-called Gehenna, where it is prophesized the original vampire, Caine (of Abel fame), and the Antediluvians (Caine's grandchildren, so to speak) will awaken and pass judgment upon all
Read it as a supplement to the "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines" videogame. It tied up some loose ends really well and while I'm not really a World of Darkness aficionado (yet), I'd easily recommend it to anyone looking for that post-Bloodlines V:TM fix.

Oh, and it's of a FAR better quality than most videogame/PnP tie-in novels out there.

Probably the best of the trilogy. I recommend this and the second book to anyone who enjoyed the games, and even to those few who are willing to work with contectual clues to figure out what they've missed to get into a good world ender.

This book gives different options for what Gehenna really means, each option being just as valid and as well thought out as the last. It is well written, well thought out, and worth your time.
