Even Mentor, the most ancient of vampires, has reason to fear the powerful Predators who are on the brink of declaring war against vampires and humans alike. Only Malachi, born of a female vampire and a male human, can stop these Predators-if the boy lives long enough to come into his own powers.

I loved the 1st book in this trilogy (Red Moon Rising) and this one is even better!! My all-time favorite vampire books are the 'Necroscope' books written by Brian Lumley. While completely different, I would rank Malachi's Moon (as well as Red Moon Rising) a close second! Hollywood is always looking for the next big hit - they need look no further than this (a "refreshing" new take on vampirism) What Hollywood needs to do is hire independent film director Philip Messerer (director of 'Thicker than Water' - The Vampire Diaries: Part 1) and they will have the hit they want...
Vampires exist in the world but they are not hell spawn or shunned by God. They once were humans who suffered from a mutated form of the disease porphyry. The disease is fatal and at the time of their death they choose weather to become a Predator, Normal or Craven vampire. Predators drink human blood and kill when necessary. They also run the blood banks that supply human blood for a price to Normals who try to act like the humans they once were. Cravens are fearful, sickly beings who beg for blood or do without. Malachi is a dhmpire, born of a mortal father and Normal vampire mother. He has most of the abilities of the vampire but he is not immortal. Many believe he is the child of prophecy, destined to be a powerful vampire slayer. One who fears Malachi¿s power has gathered an army of rogue Predators to destroy him and to take over the world. Balthazar joins forces with the insane but very powerful vampire Charles Upton. They intend to destroy the Cravens, turn the Normal into Predators, and rule the world the way they were meant to or die trying (metaphorically speaking). Billie Sue Mosiman makes her vampires so detailed and realistic that readers come away believing that this secret society actually exists. The vampiric characters are complex, yet easy to understand because they are a cross section of the human population in all its glory and degradation. MALACHI¿S MOON, the sequel to RED MOON RISING, is a special treat for lovers of the supernatural. Harriet Klausner
