The truth is, there are two basic kinds of books in the Clan Novel Series so far.
1) There are the books with a panoramic point of view that advance the larger story of the struggle between the Camarilla and the Sabbat, tie up necessary loose ends, further develop complex intrigues and so on.
2) There are the books which focus tightly on a character or small group of characters.
You may not be able to move the pins on your battle map as much with Type 2 but they tend to be the better books in the series. They tend to stand alone better (because you don't have to be moving pins on a battle map to care what happens) and tend to have more of a sense of being about the title vampire clan.
CLAN NOVEL RAVNOS is type two, as is Kathleen Ryan's other book in the series CLAN NOVEL SETITE. This makes them the strongest books in the series so far. (Gherbod Fleming's GANGREL and ASSAMITE are the other two.) Here, the hero is Khalil a charming jerk of a Ravnos who keeps outsmarting himself even as he is, yet again, declaring victory. His straight man in this farce is the commanding voice of the mysterious Ravnos elder which he hears in his head. (Rather sinister, too...but Khalil, of course, doesn't seem to notice that little problem.) Ramona from GANGREL and Liz from SETITE are teamed up with Khalil here. Ryan does an especially good job of adapting Fleming's Ramona. There doesn't seem to be any big advances of the series plot but there is some helpful development of the situation of the Ravnos clan as well as glimpses of the Nosferatu and the New York Sabbat.
And then there's that Ravnos elder....

Although I liked this book just as much as the other books in the series, I had a problem liking the main character Khalid. He was crass, hopelessly cruel and an opportunist to the most horrific degree. I found myself reading the book hoping he was destroyed at the end. Although he wasn't, I did enjoy the interaction between he and Ramona. The thought that a Gangrel and a Ravnos getting along as well as they did for so long, was astounding to say the least. All in all, I thought the book did portray the Ravnos clan quite correctly and did offer a preview to the Nosferatu book that I really enjoyed. I look forward to seeing what exactly will happen to these Cainites in the future. All I can say is, read the book, take Khalid in stride and keep the overall plot to the series in mind and you'll be dying to find out what happens next.

Though not as compelling as Kathleen Ryan's prior book (Setite), the author continues to remain the powerhouse writer in this, otherwise disappointing, series.
Once again, Ryan's characters are believable, likable (even the villains) and cunningly REAL. She makes the World of Darkness TRULY come alive despite the poor backdrop she was given by the other books in the series which rarely rise to the heights of mediocrity.
Kudos to Kathleen Ryan for another example of White Wolf authors that actually know what a 'Story-teller' does.
