Return to national bestselling author Devon Monk's heartpounding House Immortal series, where eleven powerful Houses control the world and all its resources. But now, the treaty between them has been broken, and no one—not even the immortal galvanized—is safe....

Matilda Case isn’t normal. Normal people aren’t stitched together, inhumanly strong, and ageless, as she and the other galvanized are. Normal people’s bodies don’t hold the secret to immortality—something the powerful Houses will kill to possess. And normal people don’t know that they’re going to die in a few days.

Matilda’s fight to protect the people she loves triggered a chaotic war between the Houses and shattered the world’s peace. On the run, she must find a way to stop the repeat of the ancient time experiment that gifted her and the other galvanized with immortality. Because this time, it will destroy her and everything she holds dear.

Caught in a cat-and-mouse game of lies, betrayal, and unseen foes, Matilda must fight to save the world from utter destruction. But time itself is her enemy, and every second brings her one step closer to disaster....

My Thoughts


Note: I will try my best, but there will probably be some spoilers from the first book. If you are new to the series, check out my review of House Immortal HERE.

Infinity Bell is the second book in the Urban Fantasy Series, House Immortal. The First book, House Immortal, was one of my favorite books of 2014, so I beyond excited to get my hands on the second book. And even more excited when I opened up to the first page of the ARC and saw that I was quoted from my review of the first book. (that was a major sqeeing moment…I’m not going to lie.) I need to go out and buy a couple finished copies to spotlight on my bookshelf now. But not just because I was quoted in the book, because Infinity Bell is ever bit as amazing as the first book! I freakin’ love this series.

Infinity Bell picks up right where the first book left off, and man oh man did I forget what a humdinger House Immortal left us off at. Abraham was all shot up with Shelly Dust, which is super lethal to the galvanized. Matilde and the whole gang are back and are on the run from other houses. I loved how action packed Infinity Bell was. Devon Monk does such an amazing job with the details of the world, that picking up Infinity Bell was like seamlessly stepping back into this fantastical world and being greeted by all of your old friends. And trust me when I say that Devon Monk wastes no time dumping her characters right into the fray. The events of Infinity Bell take place over such a short period of time that the book read like real time. I really like this writing style when it is well done and Devon Monk is one of the best.

This series kicks ass. There is no other way to put it. All fans of Urban Fantasy need to read the House Immortal series. And if you don’t like Urban Fantasy, this will be the series to convert you into a mega fan. I absolutely love the concept of the galvanized, and I am kind of obsessed with everything that comes out of the Case family’s homestead. I want to get my hands on some of that soil. I love the mixture of action/adventure, suspense, dashes of romance, and mystery that make up this series. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite series.

    You know what sold me on this series?
    When I read that your review was quoted in the first book I knew then that I should read this book.
    Plus book sounds pretty awesome. I’ve been getting into some urban fantasies lately and it’s always good when I come across a good reviewer of them like you.
    Plus there’s only one book for me to read to catch up. There have been series I wanted to read where they have already published 10+ books!
    Oh boy. Lol

    Some how I missed the start of this series. After reading your review, I’m going to get House immortal.

  6. Linda Romer

  7. Melissa (My World...in words and pages)

    These do sound so good. I want to get the first book and give it a go. 🙂 Thank you for sharing about it and glad you enjoyed this one too!

    Sounds awesome! 😀 I haven’t read the first book, but I prefer looking at reviews of later books in a series if I’m trying to find something new to read. I have a compulsion to finish everything I start, no matter how bad. Getting a review of a later book let’s me see that regardless of the first books, it’ll get better and is so worth it. Not that book 1 here sounds bad or anything. I just recently read 6 books of a particular series and wanted to pull hair out the whole time.
