The national bestselling author of Infinity Bell returns to her “fresh and unique”* world where the truce between the ruling Houses has shattered and chaos now reigns. Only one woman has the power to save the world—but she could also destroy it. . . .
Matilda Case never thought of herself as a hero. But because she is galvanized—and nearly immortal in her stitched, endlessly healing body—she doesn’t have much of a choice. Even if she doesn’t want to save the world, she’s the only one capable of traveling in time to do so.
But her rescue attempt hasn’t gone as planned. She’s stuck in an alternate universe, and her world is in danger of disappearing. Worst of all, an unfathomably powerful man who can also travel through history doesn’t want her to put things to rights. He’s willing to wage bloody war to stop Matilda, unless she surrenders control of time to him.
Now, with the minutes ticking, Matilda must make impossible decisions, knowing that one wrong choice will destroy her—and any chance of saving everything she loves. . . .

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.
CRUCIBLE ZERO is a roller coaster ride of a great read. The characters and story line are well-developed. Matilda Has gone back in time to fix the Wings of Mercy to repair the timeline. Her timeline is not one she wants to go back to, because everyone she loves is dead. Now she won’t let that happen to this timeline and she will do anything to prevent it. Everything in this new timeline is different. The Galvanized are not thought of a heroes, but are dangerous killers. She is also having time overlaps. This is where two timelines are meeting and she is seeing different timelines. She must stop the one who wants to destroy her and everything and everyone she loves. This has been such a great book and series, that I cannot wait to see what Devon Monk has in store next. I loved CRUCIBLE ZERO and give it 5/5 stars and recommend it to everyone.

Return to national bestselling author Devon Monk‘s heart pounding 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….

By going back in time and fixing the calculation of the original experiment will make sure that the Galvanized are created but they will stay alive. To make this happen they will have to escape being captured by the houses that want them dead. I LOVE THIS BOOK AND SERIES.

If I could give this book a 10, I would. I give INFINITY BELL 5/5 stars. I urge you to read this series. You will not be disappointed.

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.…
HOUSE IMMORTAL is a well-developed story, with an intricate story line and plot. It has well-developed characters that you will fall in love with. Tilly was a normal girl when she was born, but she would become ill and her body would die, but before that happens her brother would put her conscience, mind, and soul into a Galavanized body. A being stitched together that are immortal and very strong. Now the Houses want her for she alone holds the key to immortality. This book starts off slow, but picks up pretty quickly. HOUSE IMMORTAL pulled me in and did not let me go until the story ended and I wanted more. When I finished the book, I wanted the second one right then so I could start reading it. I came to find out that it will not be released until March 2015. Now I am patiently waiting for it to come out. I urge you to pick this book up. You will not be disappointed. I give HOUSE IMMORTAL 5/5 stars.
