A VAMPIRE NOVEL BY BRAM STOKER NOMINATED AUTHOR, BILLIE SUE MOSIMAN, author of more than 50 books.
Rise of the Legend is Book Two in the Vampire Nation Chronicles, but can be read as a standalone novel.
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

"Billie Sue Mosiman's novels are edge-of-the-seat all the way!" Ed Gorman, award winning author of BAD MOON RISING
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King, the most riveting and unforgettable story of kids confronting evil since It—publishing just as the second part of It, the movie, lands in theaters.

In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.”

In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute.

As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is Stephen King’s gut-wrenchingly dramatic story of good vs. evil in a world where the good guys don’t always win.
