Blood and Smoke: the Strix Chronicle
The Strix Chronicle contains: Driven by a bloood like fire, you will struggle to maintain your glood while immersed in a vicious society of monsters.

However, the past century has pretty much cemented sunlight as a weakness for vampires unless they are sparklepires…so as much as I was hoping that sunlight would be downplayed entirely, I do approve of this reworking of the weakness.
