This is a good expansion to the current BNS book. No doubt there is some polish needed and most of the kinks should be worked out in the next edition.
Over all, The content is great and contrary to what you're seeing here, there's a lot of positive reviews on social networks and through word of mouth.
The Clan and Bloodline merits seem pretty well fleshed out and balanced, the Techniques are a good spread and will definitely add some fun to the game.
I especially like the obeah techniques, and the 1-pt Nos Merit, but everything I've read seems neat.
The additions seem to help make the bloodlines more fun and hopefully it'll shake up the builds a little bit.
