Format: Mass Market Paperback
With a section on her website dedicated to her knitting, it was inevitable that Devon Monk would write a series where craftwork is integral.

In 1910, an experiment killed most people in the region. Thirteen people survived - they are "galvanized", seemingly immortal. They fell into comas, awakening later.

Matilda Case has been stitched together with "life thread", and her grandmother is mostly seen knitting a lengthy scarf from "pocket sheep's" wool with nano-whatever in it. Yes, this is confusing, but the scarf turns out to be very useful later on.

I came into this novel expecting a futuristic FRANKENSTEIN kind of tale, so the urban fantasy-esque creatures in the first chapter are surprising. With "immortal" in the title, it shouldn't be a surprise that the novel discusses how to stop time, but I'm more interested in the surgical/medical aspects of the story.

The novel's large cast gets confusing, with all the different House heads and their galvanized, and lengthy descriptions of what everyone looks like and what they're wearing, but I still couldn't keep track of everyone. Also, it's never explained how stitches get coloured, because the life thread itself seems to be silvery.

I don't fully understand what's going on, but I'm firmly entrenched and along for the ride. Mix Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN with Amy Ewing's THE JEWEL, and you get Devon Monk's HOUSE IMMORTAL: an intriguing blend of science, technology, politics, and who knows what else is in store.

This is very different to the other books that I have read and to be honest it took me a while to actually get into the story and characters. The world building is good but a little drawn out but as the book progressed I could understand why it was so comprehensive. It took me about half way through to start to get really interested and by two third through I couldn't put it down. If you want something with a very different but still fascinating tale, read this. I can't wait for the next one.

House Immortal is fantastic. I love this authors work but this is her best book yet in my opinion. The blurb isn't great but I don't want to give too much away as it will spoil the story being revealed. I will say that this book is Urban Fantasy but also features time travel. The characters are fab, I really like them. The world building is very original too. Can't recommend it highly enough.

I loved the Allie Beckstom series and wondered how Devon Monk could top it. Well, she did Matilda Case and the galvanized are brilliant! There's magic and a different world and also a mystery on how it came to be. I laughed at some of the characters and what they got up to.
I can't wait for the next book.

A new take on Frankenstein, cunning put together. A bit of a slow start, but forgiven by the ending, and the lovable crazy grandma.
