This is an excellent series based on the Vampire the Masqurade game. This particular trilogy goes hand-in-hand with the Grail's Covenant trilogy (To sift through bitter ashes by David Niall Wilson is the first book in that series). THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE is the first book in THE TRILOGY OF THE BLOOD CURSE series.
This author is new to me, and this is the first book in a series, but now I see that there are several conjoined series set in the same world.
I can't say I liked it a whole lot, although the narrative was clear and well-written. Very bloody, filled with pointless death and gore. And there don't seem to be ANY likeable characters. Everybody twists and turns and betrays everybody else.
From back cover: Not since the Black Death has Owain seen anything like the fatal disease sweeping across the world?but this time vampires are the victims. The anarchs suspect a plot by their elders. The elders blame the Sabbat who lurk in the darkest shadows. The Sabbat fear the return of the antediluvians?and no one is ready for them.(Book 1 of the Blood Curse trilogy)
