Editorial Reviews


"Delicious…Like a modern-day Anne Rice, Henderson has a gift for creating a world engorged with desire and death.” - The New York Times

House of Hunger is gorgeous and lushly dark, a nightmare vision that will pull you into its terrifying grip. Alexis Henderson is a master at creating enthralling fear.” -Simone St. James, New York Times bestselling author of The Book of Cold Cases

“The kind of book that deserves to be devoured. Deliciously brutal, hypnotic, and brimming with ravenous malice, Alexis Henderson has crafted a bloody, sapphic fever dream of a novel and I can’t wait to read it again.”– Francesca May, International Bestselling Author of
Wild and Wicked Things

"A gory gem of a story that sinks in its teeth and won’t let up,
House of Hunger proves that Alexis Henderson is one of the best Gothic writers out there."–Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For the Wolf

"With decadent prose as bewitching and as dangerously sharp as a rare gemstone that could slice you open at any moment, Alexis Henderson's
House of Hunger is a Gothic masterpiece that demands to linger like the coppery scent of blood in the air long after the final page is turned."-Eric LaRocca, author of Things Have Gotten Worse Since We Last Spoke

"Readers will devour every page of
House of Hunger. Alexis Henderson delivers a chilling, atmospheric tale shrouded in mystery, indulgence, deceit, and dangerous consequences."-N.E. Davenport, author of The Blood Trials

“It’s a lurid, luscious debauch of a book.” –
The Guardian (UK)
“Rich with suspense and intrigue, the novel is equal measures addictive and haunting.” –
The Independent (UK)

“Breathlessly paced and dripping with gothic decadence, Henderson’s second novel (after The Year of the Witching) cements her status as one of horror’s best new voices.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“With sumptuous prose and decadent, Gothic atmosphere, Alexis Henderson spins a lush tale of depravity, sensuality, and horror that kept me on my toes until the bitter end.”-Isabel Cañas, author of
The Hacienda

“A beguiling Gothic feast. Every lush, gorgeous page oozes atmosphere and delicious dread. Alexis Henderson is an exhilarating talent, creating rich new worlds that terrify and enchant. House of Hunger is an exceptional work of dark fantasy. Magnificent.” –Rachel Harrison, author of Such Sharp Teeth and Cackle
