From an acclaimed horror writer, a chilling tale of blood-hungry children who rise from the dead in this innovative spin on apocalyptic vampire fiction.
Suffer the Children presents a terrifying tale of apocalyptic fiction, as readers are introduced to Herod's Syndrome, a devastating illness that suddenly and swiftly kills all young children across the globe. Soon, they return from the grave…and ask for blood. And with blood, they stop being dead. They continue to remain the children they once were...but only for a short time, as they need more blood to live. The average human body holds ten pints of blood...
This was a truly thought provoking book that begs the inevitable question for parents everywhere becomes: How far would you go to bring your child back? When is it time to let them go, and could you? The real story begins after the children wake. It's a bit of a slow start, but worth getting through the plot setup!
