Lt. Charlie Harrison survived the horrors of Rabaul and the midnight battle with the Mizukaze. When he reports to Sabertooth at Pearl, he must contend with a crew that isn't quite welcoming and an officer protecting a dire secret. While underway, the captain reveals the submarine's mission--travel to the Japanese-occupied Philippines, deliver supplies to the Filipino guerillas, and bring American refugees home. When Sabertooth runs into Yosai, one of the aircraft carriers that attacked Pearl Harbor, the mission changes. As disaster strikes, Charlie must take command and make the ultimate decision--get the refugees home, or risk everything on an all-or-nothing attack. "Adventure in the grand tradition: high stakes on the high seas, a gripping story that moves at frenetic pace without sacrificing character or detail. I read Silent Running in two sittings, literally on the edge of my seat." -John Dixon, author of Phoenix Island

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). SO MANY MOUTHS TO FEED 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?
