From acclaimed horror writer Craig DiLouie comes 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 listeners are introduced to Herod’s Syndrome, a devastating illness that suddenly and swiftly kills all young children across the globe. They soon 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, so the inevitable question for parents everywhere becomes: how far would you go to bring your child back?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Not for the faint of heart.”

    Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A gripping tale of horror that hits nerves you didn’t even know you had.”


  • “This vampire variation of recent resurrection fiction…will be especially terrifying for any guardian.”

    Library Journal

  • “Creepy, poignant, heart-wrenching, and good old-fashioned scary.”

    Megan Hart, author of The Space between Us

  • “A terrifying novel filled with impossible decisions…[and] a stark, brutal, and chilling vision of the end of days.”

    David Moody, author of Hater

  • “R. C. Bray gives a superb performance, reading with great feeling and energy, establishing a convincing foundation for the imagination. He uses multiple character inflections and intonations, so distinguishing the characters is effortless.”

    Library Journal (audio review)

  • “In grim tones, narrator R. C. Bray exposes the creeping horror of DiLouie’s novel…As families alter their morality to fit the new world order, Bray’s fatalistic narration edges listeners toward uncomfortable revelations and unspeakable acts done in the name of parental love. His descriptions of back alley bloodletting will have listeners cringing in all the right places. Bray’s voicings are weakest with children…Nonetheless, DiLouie’s ominous mood mounts as Bray layers conflicting motivations into a seamless whole.”
