Description
FIRST IN THE HOUSE IMMORTAL SERIES!

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...

        Eleven color-coded Houses control the technology and resources of Earth. The 12th House, House Brown, is democratic but has little real power. Many people find freedom only by living hidden from the Houses’ movers and shakers. Matilda Case has spent her life on an isolated farm, carefully avoiding notice, but all that is for naught when a bleeding Abraham Seventh appears at her door. Abraham is one of the galvanized—a group of 12 immortals created centuries ago—and Matilda appears to also be galvanized, even though she’s not one of the 12. The secret of Matilda’s origins makes her a treasure beyond compare, and it also makes her the key to megalomaniac Slater Orange’s plan to rule the world forever. Monk’s corporatist feudal future is painted in broad strokes, and while the technology that drives the plot is uninhibited by any sort of plausibility, the melodramatic story moves with such energy that readers will be inclined to forgive its slip-ups. Like Monk’s Allie Beckstrom, Matilda has the misfortune to be sought after by powerful, immoral men; she has been dealt a no-win hand, and the entertainment is in watching how she plays it out.

        In 1910, an experiment to manipulate time went very wrong. Twelve human survivors of the time blast were permanently changed and have come to be referred to as the galvanized--incredibly strong, immortal, and stitched with life thread. Nearly 300 years later, Matilda Case, a young woman with a farm full of unusual creatures, has tried to hide herself away--hoping that no one will notice the similarities she shares with the galvanized. All of that is altered when Abraham the Seventh, a galvanized claimed by House Gray, shows up on her farm severely wounded, with a message from her long-dead mother. Matilda must quickly make a life-altering choice: run and hide to secure her freedom or exchange her servitude to one of the ruling Houses for the safety of those she loves. VERDICT This series launch by the author of the "Age of Steam" steampunk series and the Allie Beckstrom urban fantasies will appeal to readers intrigued by both time travel and dystopian society stories. In future installments, readers will learn if Matilda, with the help of her genius brother Quinten, will be able to unlock the mystery behind the Wings of Mercury experiment, or if they will simply run out of time to change history and save the world.--Vicky M. Coffin, Eastern Connecticut State Univ. Lib., Willimantic
