Slow starting fast finisher

House Immortal By Devon Monk


One hundred years ago, eleven powerful ruling Houses consolidated all of the world’s resources and authority into their own grasping hands. Only one power wasn’t placed under the command of a single House: the control over the immortal galvanized....

Matilda Case isn’t like most folk. In fact, she’s unique in the world, the crowning achievement of her father’s experiments, a girl pieced together from bits. Or so she believes, until Abraham Seventh shows up at her door, stitched with life thread just like her and insisting that enemies are coming to kill them all.

Tilly is one of thirteen incredible creations known as the galvanized, stitched together beings immortal and unfathomably strong. For a century, each House has fought for control over the galvanized. Now the Houses are also tangled in a deadly struggle for dominion over death—and Tilly and her kind hold the key to unlocking eternity

The secrets that Tilly must fight to protect are hidden within the very seams of her being. And to get the secrets, her enemies are willing to tear her apart piece by piece.…

Rate & take


This is the first book in the House Immortal series and I am hooked. It didn't start out that way, the way it started was slow. I've read and loved another series of the authors, Allie Beckstrom, so maybe my brain was already expecting the writing to be a certain way. As if I had more of a familiarity with the authors writing style that I guess I actually do. What I did find was a fresh story that, once I got over my own roadblocks, had me powering right through until I turned the last page to no more story. The book recently came out so I'm in for yet another wait...but a wait that I feel is well worth it.
