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

Upton is intent on destroying Malachi and bent on seizing control of all vampires.Malachi must stop him or lose his very soul.
"Billie Sue Mosiman's novels are edge-of-the-seat all the way!" Ed Gorman, award winning author of BAD MOON RISING
An ancient vampire, beautiful beyond words, a vulnerable young man drawn to her by a power beyond his understanding, two desperate parents searching across the world for the son they love -- these are the riveting, unexpected elements of Whitley Strieber's extraordinary new novel.
Lilith, the ages-old mother of the dying race of vampires, has been forced to come out of her cave deep in the Egyptian desert in search of food -- human blood. But she knows nothing about the modern world. She can't drive a car, rent a room, turn on a TV. She struggles to New York, penniless, vulnerable, and starving, protected only by her beauty and her power to capture men with desire...especially certain very special men.
The instant she sees young Ian Ward, she knows that he is part vampire himself. She knows that Ian, if he ever tastes human blood, will belong to her forever. And she needs him desperately, to help her survive and live in this harsh new world of jets and credit cards and guns. She sets out on a campaign of seduction -- as sensuous as it is terrifying -- to touch human blood to Ian's lips, which will then become for him a drug a thousand times more addictive than heroin.
Ian's father, Paul Ward, part vampire turned expert and obsessive hunter of vampires, knows that if the blood transforms Ian, Paul will have to kill his own son. The titanic conflict between father and son and seductress, hunter and hunted and huntress, comes to its surprise conclusion in the secret chambers beneath the great pyramids, where the hidden truths of all human history are stored.
From its beginning in the dark back alleys of Cairo to its totally unexpected ending, Lilith's Dream draws the reader down seductive new paths of discovery, into places where no novel has ever before. With Lilith's Dream Whitley Strieber has created a vampire so original and a story so new that he has virtually invented a new genre.
