Infernals provide a new antagonist for most Exalted games - or a new set of protagonists. The information is helpful, the rules provided for akuma and demon-blooded are useful, the Charms are extremely intriguing and the entire premise is fun. This is a great book.

Many people questioned if we needed "another" splat which dealt with corrupted Solars. All I can say after reading this is - YES WE DO!

A truly great book for Exalted 2nd ed. Some of the most evocative mechanics backing up the well described Yozi charms really help to ensure that any NPC or PC created with this book will have a lot more than just "new special powers" to add to your RP experience. This book features some very clever systemics which means that the Green Sun Princes are very different from their Solar and Abyssal cousins.

A really good read!

This book was receiving horrible press amidst various forums for it's content. Not to rehash it, but (by and large) it is all wrong. Nothing in this book was anymore sensationalist than anything that has come before it.

The feel of the book is as I would expect from Exalted, and White Wolf, in general. Immersive, detailed, plot hooks abound. Some of it even rubs off as dark comedy to me (Malfeas' plans). If you enjoyed Lunars and Abyssals, this book will be a sure-fire competitor for your favorite Exalt-type. I'm still holding out for Alchemicals before I call this my favorite Exalt-type... but it's pretty darn close at this point.

Lots of new mechanics and twists on things we've seen (with things we haven't seen) make this Charm section fun to read over and over again. Graceful Wicked Masques... but better. Flexible, in every sense of the word. All the information about akumas and Green Sun Princes is spot on wonderful.

Kudos to White Wolf and their freelancers for doing a phenominal job on this book. Five stars!

I'm at a loss for words. This is (so far) the best rpg book I've ever held in my hands.

The authors poured a lot of effort into this book. The charms are extremely different from anything that has been done before A lot of charms build upon previous ones, improving them. Many charms that kind of bridge the gap between sorcery and charms with a lot of them changing the character permanently.
The designers have obviously learned a lot during the course of this line and if someday a new or revised edition should be released, I'm certain we'll see a lot of the lessons they've learned reimplemented.

You can pretty much play anything from a radioactive angel dispensing the righteous rage of an angry titan over a decadent and cunning governor of some far off island which you lead as a colony of Malfeas to a Paul Mua'Dib like character (your followers even gain glowing eyes = total win).
And that's ignoring the fact of how easy it is to play someone who abhors his masters and seeks to make the world a better place. In the latter case you'll probably appear like a villain to many people, but damn if you don't also look awesome all the same.

For now I'm hoping that the book about the infernal hellhole of Malfeas is half as good as this book. That'd still make it a 5/5 book for me.
If this book is any indication, I'm even starting to look forward to Alchemicals even more than I have before.
Until then:
Viva la Yozi! Let the Reclamation begin!
