Melissa's Review:

House Immortal is book one in the House Immortal series. I've been wanting to try more Urban Fantasy books lately and was so glad to see this on my library's website! I honestly had no clue what to expect going into this book and wound up enjoying learning about this new world and characters. I have a feeling the next book will be even better than this one since we'll already have a good understanding on it all.

Matilda Case (aka Tilly) lives a pretty quiet life on her farm taking care of her grandmother and staying busy with daily farm tasks. Things quickly turn interesting when Abraham Seventh shows up at Matilda's farm injured and this is when we learn about the galvanized. Matilda is one of them but she's a bit different from the rest. Galvanized are immortals that are stitched up and are stronger than humans. Abraham works for one of the houses (Gray) and is tasked with bringing Tilly back with him. Tilly in turn is looking for her missing brother and does her best to save her family and farm by pledging herself to the house for several years. It's not all fun and games though, there's something suspicious going on, and not everyone will get out unscathed.


House Immortal is an intriguing start to a series that has me wanting the next book. I'll be grabbing the next installment soon since I had a good time with this one, I want to see where the author is going to take the series. I did feel like this book compared to others in the Urban Fantasy genre was different, I really liked that it had a unique character set and plot. Overall, this book was pretty good and if you enjoy Urban Fantasy with strong leading ladies you'll need to grab this series.

The Narrator:

I thought Leslie Carroll did a good job in her narration. Nothing over the top fantastic, but nothing horrible to say either.
