This book is the first book I have read for Requiem, and quite honestly has turned me on to the new system. This is more or less the clan book for the coven Ordo Dracul.
Rites of the Dragon is written more along the lines of a story than it is a typical rpg book. There are no rituals, or cool powers, just the story of how the order was established. This is quite honestly darker than anything they have put out since 1st edition.
I highly recommend this book, if you are going to impliment ordo dracul into your chronicle. Keep in mind the rules of the coven are in the book, how they operate etc.
