This was a short story that gives us the background on Malachi. I really enjoyed it. When I finished I was all sorts of angry..until I realized Malachi's book is out. I was about to freak out on someone. I definitely recommend this if you've read the previous Hunters novels.

I must say that I was completely floored by the poetic, stunning writing of this short story. At first, I was not aware that this was based on a character that is much more expanded on in an actual series, so I must admit that the ending initially was frustrating, as there was no resolution. But now that I did find the Author's Note, it all makes more sense to me, and I understand why it was left so open. And I am eager to pick up this series.

It's pretty commendable that this character's past wa
"Malachi" by Shiloh Walker. A prequil to The Hunters series.

**NOTE** Should be read after "The Huntress", also a prequil to the series.

If you've been reading this series, it was so exciting to read how Malachi came to be a vampire! And if you haven't read the series, well you'll really enjoy this story as well!

Shiloh Walker takes us back in time to before Malachi became a vampire and shows us his history and background. It also tells us how he met Alys and how he becomes a Hunter.

This short novella gives the reader great insight of the life of Malachi as a slave before he was turned during (I believe) the Roman times. It also provides the reader the story of how he was turned and the life he lived with his sire.
This was a great little short story about how Malachi gets turned into a vampire, and how he is so strong. I thought at first we were getting his HEA but that's actually in another book that has two hunters stories in it with one plot. This was a great read for some of the back story and we do get to meet his mate in this short story. This was a good read if you've ever wanted to know more about Malachi and why he does some of the things he does.
Very short. In future Hunter books, Malachi is on the concil. This explains his background. It's all in Malachi's thoughts and experiences as he goes through several phases as a slave until he's changed to a vampire and found by the Hunters.

Best part: Malachi keeping Ays from running to Jacob
Malachi is HOT!!! He is one of my favorites from this series. I'm glad I decided to read his beginning.
Short story. I'm a long novel person. I liked the story, just wished it was longer.

I am glad I read this after Heart and Soul ... it would have been too sad otherwise.
