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. 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, so the inevitable question for parents everywhere becomes: how far would you go to bring your child back?

"In grim tones, narrator R.C. Bray exposes the creeping horror of DiLouieÕs novel. Throughout the world, Herod syndrome gradually converts children into bloodthirsty parasites, leaving their parents to source blood for them or allow them to die. Suburban Michigan serves as the epicenter of DiLouieÕs psychological pressure cooker. As families alter their morality to fit the new world order, BrayÕs 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. BrayÕs voicings are weakest with childrenÑtheir squawking or whining timbre fails to engender the necessary pathos. Nonetheless, DiLouieÕs ominous mood mounts as Bray layers conflicting motivations into a seamless whole. C.A. 2015 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
