I'm not a big fan of chronicles-focused books (even if it has some powers and loresheets), but this one hit it right with me. Although I'm biased cuz I love me some Giovanni Chronicles, and Old Wounds and The Family hit it right at home. Open Your Eyes is a very cultish and esoteric one that mixes things a bit in a cool way. I haven't read The Wellspring deeply, but the street/park level cult and mystery seem really involving.
All and all, a damn cool book, which I'm gonna use to mix it up and make a Giovanni Chronicles Part IV.S or a Part V-ish. Although a Hecata Chroniclees would be more appropriate I suppose. The themes and tones of each chronicle of Trails of Ash and Bone are very well defined and expressed, you can basically see the colors and smells of each story just by the synopsis and introduction.
