about

The children are back. And this time, they're out for blood. In this gripping supernatural thriller of horror and edge-of-your-seat suspense -- from New York Times bestselling author Douglas Clegg -- something is terribly wrong with the children of Colony, West Virginia. 

Innocent though they seem, these kids come out at night -- to hunt. 

"Clegg is the best horror writer of the post-Stephen King generation." - Bentley Little, bestselling author of The Haunting. 

When Joe Gardner returns with his wife and two young children to the peaceful mountain town of Colony, West Virginia, he doesn’t expect to find the girl who disappeared when he was a boy. 

But she remembers Joe -- and her other friends who left her behind, way down in a deep well within a mysterious barn. 

"Clegg's stories can chill the spine so effectively that the reader should keep paramedics on standby."-- Dean Koontz, NY Times Bestselling Author. 

Is she a vampire? 

Or something more demonic... 

Whatever’s lurking in the old mines under the town has been disturbed by Joe’s return. Joe did something when he was a boy – something that stopped the terror and evil from erupting. 

But now, a creature living in darkness wants out. 

It’s going to use the children of Colony to exact its revenge... 

Its hour has come 'round at last – the Children’s Hour… 

"Douglas Clegg knows exactly what scares us, and he knows how to twist those fears into hair-raising chills..." -- Tess Gerritsen, New York Times Bestselling Author.
