"Wonderfully complex tale!"
Thirteen years ago, Zara Devine was born. She was the first
to be born after the nuclear explosion in Beckering, very
near her home. Different from other children since her
birth, Zara doesn't have much to do with them and tends to
stay by herself. Even her mother and father tend to leave
Zara to her own devices. So on her birthday, Zara travels
to the site of the explosion and the coming of the Truth
Cloud. Trying very hard, Zara is able to contact others of
her kind telepathically.
When the children of the Truth Cloud can no longer stand
the emotions and thoughts of the Isolationists, they begin
to gather and live apart from the rest of the humanity. The
Centroid tells the children of the common purpose and so
they begin gathering nuclear materials to make their own
bombs and create more of the Truth Clouds.
Meanwhile, one woman, KT Wishbone, special advisor to the
President of the United States, is able to communicate with
this children. What she finds scares the pants off her. Not
only can these children communicate telepathically, they
have awesome powers of controlling things around them as
well. And their purpose is one of evil.
Will these children be stopped before they destroy the
Earth? Can they be stopped?
SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN is truly an awesome and complex
work of art. Michael J. Davies paints a pretty bleak
picture in this story and held me spellbound the entire
time I was reading it. The many different levels in this
story just add to it. We have a bit of everything, from a
totally incompetent British Prime Minister, to the only
woman on Earth who knows the true evil of these Truth Cloud
children. These good looking children are totally without
emotion and have no idea just what disasters they are
bringing to the planet. Michael J. Davies is truly an
artist who can create whatever type of world he wishes. And
while this may not have been a light, easy read, it is one
which I will never forget.
