From Booklist (Review for Malachi's Moon the paperback novel now titled RISE OF THE LEGEND)
Malachi is the child of a vampire (his mother) and a human (his father). Though mortal, he possesses many of the powers of vampires; and one vampire, Balthazar, is convinced that he is a threat to the most dangerous kind of vampires, the Predators. Balthazar haunts Malachi's dreams and, when Malachi reaches his teens, begins to send assassins after him. Malachi fears for his family's safety and decides to leave home for a while. Meanwhile, in Thailand, imprisoned vampire Charles Upton is planning to escape and wreak havoc on the vampire world by gathering the Predators together to destroy the other two kinds of vampires, the Naturals, who live as humans, and the sickly Cravens. When Upton and Balthazar team up to achieve their respective goals, Mentor, a powerful vampire who tries to keep order among the vampire groups, realizes that both vampire and human worlds could be thrown into chaos and sets out to stop them. Well-drawn characters and a complex plot put this a cut above the usual vampire fare. Kristine Huntley
