The Rats in the Walls


Delapore. A name with a history. A history of unspeakable atrocity; a history of black arts; a history of hatred, and terror.

Delapore. It’s just a name, now. In this case, it is the name of a man returning to England to reclaim the lands of his family. The name of a man who knows the skeletons in his family’s closet — or so he thinks.

Delapore. Surely it is possible to outlive the past. Surely it is possible to outrun one’s ancestors, to outrun history — to outrun fate. Surely a man’s destiny lies in his own hands, and not in the misdeeds of men a hundred generations dead.

Beware, England. The last Delapore has come home.
