I second GKarsEye's recommendation. Here is the thread where I posted some information on the books, including the ISBN numbers (which, if used, will make it less likely that the bookstore will order the wrong book for you). Book Info.
The thread title is "Crusade Books", but don't let that confuse you. There currently are no Crusade Books.
The book you want is Dark Genesis and is listed in my February 04, 2002 06:09 AM post in the above thread. It's also in the Excel spreadsheet of my February 04, 2002 04:29 AM post. When reading Dark Genesis, it pays to take notes so that you can keep everything straight (aliases, bloodlines, dates of specific events, etc.).
Here are the notes I made for Dark Genesis (don't read them until you've read the book).
