Shame that James A. Moore and Kevin Murphy haven't worked together since this collaboration. White Wolf's "World of Darkness" is a deeply thought-out mythology and this book uses that setting very well.

Shame that James A. The descriptions are visceral, the characters well developed, the horror hits the right tone, the humor surprises, the action is gripping, the pacing is tight, and really it all just works. House of Secrets also manages to ground the supernatural elements with a realistic feel

If you are a World of Darkness fan, this book may not really be for you.
It is based upon the Vampire: the Eternal Struggle (or Jyhad) card game more than Vampire: the Masquerade. The author tended to take that distinction a bit too seriously, introducing characters and items from the card game in a rapid-fire succession that made it more a novel of name-dropping than individual characters.
My other problem is something that comes across in a few sources of Tremere lore, and is repudiated by nearly every other source; that the character of councilor Etrius is an innocent and kindly man. No one gets into a position like his by being a sweet-heart. I did like the plot over all, despite it's over-complication with the name/character dropping...however if it were more 'canon' with the over all Vampire: the Masquerade plots, I'd have like it better. The idea that the Tremere almost succeeded in returning not only the entire clan to mortality, but to being true Mages once more (even though not all of them would have been Mages when alive) and somehow everyone forgets this attempt afterward, is a bit much.

House of Secrets also manages to ground the supernatural elements with a realistic feel. Reading about Tremere thaumaturgy or the mental state of vampires using their abilities was like hearing it described from personal experience. The authors take these elements and deliver a deep and intriguing story from start to finish. One of my favorite books to go back and reread, I highly recommend it.
