On a grand canvas reminiscent of Guillermo del Torro and Justin Cronin, acclaimed author Craig DiLouie presents "a terrifying novel filled with impossible decisions [and] a stark, brutal, and chilling vision of the end of days" (David Moody, author of Hater).

It begins on an ordinary day: children around the world are dying. All children, everywhere—a global crisis beyond any parent’s worst nightmare. Then, a miracle beyond imagining: three days later, they return. Shattered mothers and fathers see their sons and daughters happy and whole once more, playing and laughing as before—but only when they feed. They hunger for blood…and they can’t get enough upon which to feast. Without it, they die again. How far would you go to keep someone you love alive?

Praise For Suffer the Children

The Killing Floor is a high-octane, nail-biter of a zombie novel. Psychologically complex and emotionally devastating. Craig DiLouie is one of the new masters of zombie fiction.
— New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry

“A unique and startling vision of Armageddon … DiLouie takes the nightmare of The Infection and ratchets up the horror to another level. Recommended!”
— David Moody

"A stand-out book in an otherwise glutted genre … DiLouie carefully recreates our society and our military, populates it with people we want to know, then proceeds to bring the horror, devastation, and heroes we require.”
— Fangoria

“This book does for the zombie genre what Black Hawk Down did for modern war journalism, and that is high praise indeed. Tooth and Nail kept me reading all night long, and I think it’ll keep you glued to the page as well. This one is a spectacular achievement.”
— Joe McKinney
