Staff Reviews


Ah, finally, not-quite-Frankenstein super-people of the future are here! I loved everything about this book, from the futuristic world divided by ruling Houses to the immortal Galvanized and the forgotten, deadly science experiment that created them. Matilda is a fantastic main character, an unknown Galvanized who grew up living outside of the House power-plays; when she's suddenly thrust into this world, I love watching her navigate it - she's determined, smart, superhuman strong, and she's not about to get trapped in servitude to a House without a fight.

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...
