The Dark Ages Clan Novel Saga is a 13-volume series of novels set in the world of Dark Ages: Vampire, released by White Wolf from 2002 to the end of 2004. The series begins with Dark Ages Clan Novel 1: Nosferatu and ends with Dark Ages Clan Novel 13: Tzimisce. Inspired by the original modern-day Clan Novel Saga for Vampire: The Masquerade, this series begins with the end of the original Vampire: The Dark Ages era and continued into the time-frame of Dark Ages: Vampire.
The 13 novels are written from the POV of one clan each during the turbulence that swept through the mortal and Cainite societies of Europe following the fall of Constantinople in the Fourth Crusade. These novels, unlike the original Clan Novel Series, are chronological, happening one after the other rather than overlapping.
Dark Ages Clan Novel #2 Assamite:
The Highest Stakes
For the Children of Haqim, the Middle-Eastern vampires Europeans call Assamites, there can be no more important battle. Christian crusaders are amassed in Constantinople threatening the Muslim Egypt and the Holy Land. Harnessing their zeal is a powerful vampiric Templar who dreams of taking Jerusalem and destroying Clan Assamite.
Standing against him is Amala, a skilled Child of Haqim who finds herself drawn to the Templar and his pronouncements of divine sanction. Can one woman stop a crusade? Does she even want to?
Dark Ages: Assamite continues the epic thirteen part series of Dark Ages Clan Novels, chronicling a vast conflict among the vampires of the Middle Ages. The War of Princes rages.
