Vampire: The Requiem
"This is not the abandonment of death, nor is it the breath of life. This is a funeral song, the musical interlude between life and death, and this Requiem is all we have after the vital course of the former and the cold nothingness of the latter. The Requiem has its crescendos and its diminuendos; its wild-eyed fanatics, blood-spattered madmen, sensualists, revolutionaries, and its would-be conquerors. This is not the bittersweet music of the dearly departed, though - this is the Symphony of the Damned ."
- Charlotte Gaudibert, Aequitas Fatalis (from the back cover)
