Review by Deird'Re Brooks in the FAQ

As promised, this book is simply background information. It's written in a style similar to the Clanbook: Gangrel, in that the book is being compiled by Kindred for other Kindred to read. There are several involved in its creation. There are chapters on the Caine's Becoming (or Awakening), the creation of the Second Generation, the Third Generation, and the successive revolts. There is a section with several prophecies for Gehenna, many of which are fairly confusing. The last chapter details what life in Enoch was like.

Each section has extensive footnotes at the end, and an introductory bit describing what the chapter is about. The closing comments can make your typical Kindred quite paranoid, for certain . . .
