Lit/Rant reviewed SUFFER THE CHILDREN (and Tim Waggoner’s NIGHT TERRORS in the same post) and writes, “DiLouie has written a new take on the traditional vampire novel, combining it with a fantastic apocalyptic premise to create a horror mashup that is well-thought out in the sort of way that makes it as much a tragedy as a fright-fest. That’s the sort of horror one gets from the masters, and SUFFER THE CHILDREN is original and worthy.”

Thanks, Lit/Rant!

SUFFER THE CHILDREN audiobook by Craig DiLouieLIBRARY JOURNAL reviewed the audiobook edition of SUFFER THE CHILDREN and writes, “In this thought-provoking and horrific tale, DiLouie (THE KILLING FLOOR) offers a different spin on the post-apocalyptic tale that is sure to delight readers of this genre. A great addition to libraries of any size.”

LIBRARY JOURNAL also had plenty of praise for RC Bray, the narrator. I have to agree. Bray did a fantastic job. He really takes you into the story and enhances the experience of the book.

A second reviewer at Contagious Reads reviewed SUFFER THE CHILDREN and writes, “You begin to regret reading late at night, the fact that you turned the lights off … I never questioned the authenticity of his characters or their decisions, they were flawed, and they were real … I loved this book for all that it was, it was a true thrill ride that messed with my head.”

Thanks, Contagious Reads!

Aintitcoolnews.com reviewed SUFFER THE CHILDREN, writing, “The book attacks the reader’s most vulnerable, primal fears, showing us the dark side of unconditional love. And like the most memorable horror stories, SUFFER THE CHILDREN gives the reader a glimpse of the true monster in the reflection of a fractured mirror … The deeply disturbing dread of SUFFER THE CHILDREN will linger in the minds of the readers long after the final page has been turned.”

Thanks, AintitCoolNews.com!

Nathan Robinson of Snakebithorror reviewed SUFFER THE CHILDREN and writes, “DiLouie bites to heart with this one; an apocalyptic tale that doesn’t begin with wolves or fire at your door, but with something that tears you up from the inside out, taking apart what humanity you have left piece by piece, until all that is left is a quivering husk telling itself that everything will be alright, everything will be fine, when it’s anything but…”

Nerd Empire (great name for a website) reviewed TOOTH AND NAIL, writing, “I was very satisfied with this action packed rager! I highly recommend it!”‘

Apparently, it was the blogger’s first zombie book, and it’s sold him on reading more of the genre. That’s a win!

SUFFER THE CHILDREN by Craig DiLouieMichelle’s Romantic Tangle recently reviewed SUFFER THE CHILDREN, recently released by Simon & Schuster and Permuted Press and available in bookstores everywhere, and writes, “SUFFER THE CHILDREN by Craig DiLouie is seriously unsettling … Based on the publisher’s description, I was expecting ravenous little vampires with sharp teeth. This book is a lot more subtle than that, and a lot more chilling. It focuses on a number of inter-connected families and the question of what parents would be willing to do for their children. The parents and their desperation were completely believable, which is what makes the book hit so hard. If you read horror, I definitely recommend this one!”

Thanks for your review!
