Description

THIS HOUSE WILL DEVOUR YOU is a story of love, madness, murder, mysteries and dead gods set in the1920's. It is an epistolary audio drama as told by Jon and Elizabeth to each other in their letters.

 

Season One takes place in Ireland and England, with the action in Season Two focussed on Egypt, as well as Ireland and England.

Come join us for a gothic, slow burn story of gothic horror, romance and adventure!

For lovers of creepy, slow-burn, gothic 1920’s historical fiction, romance and low key horror. "...perfectly timed for the fireside", one of the Sunday Independent's "newly hatched gems" (December 2022). 

SEASON ONE is a twelve part story of love, madness, murder, mysteries and dead gods set in Ireland and England. Kilphaun Hall sits high on a ridge overlooking the Blackwater river in County Waterford. Abandoned and silent for so long, it echoes now to the cheerful sounds of renovation and preparations for the coming social season of winter 1925. But Kilphaun Hall has its secrets and some places are best left to rot, forgotten. Set between England and the uneasy peace of post-Civil War Ireland, newly returned Captain Jon Ross must survive both local hostility and the increasingly sinister happenings at the house as his English fiancée Elizabeth Sanderson risks London’s occultist demi-monde in a race to save him. 
In SEASON TWO Elizabeth comes to the fore as she sets off for Egypt in a possibly foolhardy quest for a cure for her stricken brother and now appears to have gotten herself mixed up in something very sinister, involving ancient Egyptian gods, cursed expeditions, murderous secret societies and imperial ambitions.

You may be tempted to let your mind wander as you listen to this slow-burn horror series. Yeah, don’t do that. You’ll miss a lot, and a lot comes at you fast. And it’s good stuff!
