Phil Lollar's "Iliad House" Is Now Available!

Over 3 years ago, Phil Lollar (known as AIO's co-creator) started a Kickstarter campaign to help launch his new radio drama series called Iliad House. It was funded, but there have been several unforeseen circumstances that hindered the completion of it. We're happy to announce that it is finally done & ready to be heard by everyone and is well worth the wait. Welcome to a new kind of adventure!

CD Cover
Fourteen-year-old orphan Jesse Davidson lives with his emotionally-distant and peculiar uncle Christopher Portalis in the Iliad House, a mysterious old mansion on an island off the east coast of the United States. Just when Jesse is finally getting used to living on the island, he discovers that the old abandoned train he and his friends have been using as a clubhouse for the past year can actually move - through time! 

They get caught up in a series of adventures fraught with temporal distortions, political intrigue, secret societies, and supernatural battles, all as they try to cope with the daily pressures and craziness of adolescence. While traveling through the future and the past, they learn hard truths and secrets about themselves, and that there is forgiveness and redemption available to all who desire it. And, as Jesse and his uncle come to understand each other, Jesse begins to see that there is much more to Iliad House, and to why he and his uncle are there, than anyone realizes. 

The first album contains 6 episodes, including:
  1. First Impressions
  2. Time Train
  3. Visions of Reality
  4. Blood Money
  5. Open War
  6. The Clearing
Quick disclaimer: This series is aimed for a little older audience than the 8 - 12 age range for Odyssey. Parents should preview or listen to it with younger children as there are some scenes with characters in peril.

Here's a trailer of the series to give you a taste of what you'll expect.

You can get your own copy of the first 6 episodes on MP3 or CD on the Iliad House website. The artwork for this series is phenomenal. You can see a few of the pieces on the Kickstarter page. If you enjoy looking at the artwork for a radio drama while listening or if you want to share the show with someone as a gift, the CDs allow you to do both of those things. Make sure to support the show so Phil and his team can make more episodes in the future!

We'll be having a review with Phil Lollar soon about Iliad House and other things so if you've heard it already, make sure to send us your questions about IH, AIO, or anything else to us. Just don't post any of your questions publicly if they contain spoilers. For spoiler-related questions, email them to [].

Iliad House is not associated with Focus on the Family.
