Synopsis: An origins story centered on the centuries-old feud between the race of aristocratic vampires and their onetime slaves, the Lycans.

Reaction: Once again a Romeo and Juliet style tale, but since it was integrally referred to in the first one, that isn't a strike against it. It fleshes out (and slightly changes) a couple of story points from the previous two, and it's a little less compelling, but not terribly so.
