First of all, a slight disclaimer: I would have read this much faster, but Grimspace happened and then I got sucked into a whole other series before coming back to finish this one.

This is book two in the new House Immortal series by Devon Monk that follows Matilda Case, a stitched galvanized, as she tries to help her friends and family and escape the powerful Houses who control the world and people in it.

She's like a Frankenstein girl with Hulk-like strength and super-healing abilities.

A buddy read with my MacHalo Freaks and weirdness enthusiasts!!!

I keep being surprised by how good and innovative this series is... I guess I should not be, but we all tend to fall into patterns of genre expectations and when something comes outside the color-in lines, it smacks our brains with a brick and makes us think:):):) At least, that is what seems to make me wake up and think... the brick... smacking me that is... Yeeeaaaa, none too eager to move that muscle, I guess:)

5 Stars!

This book is absolutely amazing. Once I started reading, I simply could not put it down. It is just that good. The premise of the world within this book is so original and interesting that I found I was quickly hooked. The first book in the series, House Immortal, was good but this book far surpassed it. I would suggest that readers start with the first book in the series because this book doesn't spend a lot of t

If you've known me for five minutes you know my love for Devon Monk runs deep, and it's hard for me to not five star this just out of loyalty, but, it happened... Devon Monk has written a book I wasn't head over heels with.

This is a sad day in my life.

This is the second book in Matilda's series, and it's not that it's bad, because it's really not, but the book doesn't feel like it was as complete as it could have been I guess. It's like there was just a tiny bit of magic missing - I don't kno
I liked this, but oh boy that ending... it really shakes things up and I am dying to know more of the details about the 'why' of it (trying to be vague and non spoilery). I'd have been a bit more flat footed at the end if there weren't some warning in the form of of an observation by one of the characters, because I was so wrapped up in the moment and the action that I wasn't thinking of consequences.

It sure is going to be hard to wait for the next book but on the other hand the shake up is a b

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

INFINITY BELL, the second book in the House Immortal series, shows that Devon Monk just doesn't know when to let up - in a good way! INFINITY BELL really takes the reader on a wild ride, throwing them from one conflict to the next, with smooth writing allowing for an excellent reading experience.

My main complaint about HOUSE IMMORTAL was the truncated romantic story line. This time around, we get to see much more growth in the relationship between Mati

Gahhhhh! I cannot believe it fucking ended like that! I need more immediately. This series is awesome!

Here is my review now that I've had time to calm down and process this:

I’ve got a book hangover because Infinity Bell was that fucking great! I got to the last page and went to flip to the next to realize it was over. I was left hanging with the mother of all cliffhangers.

So back to the beginning. It picked up right where House Immortal left off. These books are really a continuation of one sto

I love Devon Monk's books, her world building is amazing. The story picks up where the first left off. Crazy stuff is happening, people are injured and there is the race against time to save the world. Ms Monk leads us on a thrilling rollercoaster of a journey. There is a massive twist which obviously I can't tell you about but it was fantastically done and jaw dropping. Can't wait for book 3.

If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy get this book, in fact you should get all of Devon Monk's books.

What an ending. Review to come.
I almost gave this two stars for "it was ok." Ultimately I felt like that would be a disservice, though.

I was uncomfortable through most of this book and I realized that the reason I was is because I was waiting to be toyed with at the end. The book seemed as if it was meant to be the end of book 1, if perhaps slightly longer than most of the genre. But instead of making it a slightly longer, really exceptional single book they picked a spot to cliff-hanger an ending and called it the first book

I am really enjoying this trilogy. The characters in these books are unique (people stitched together......a two headed man!?!), but done so well that they are believable. The (view spoiler) aspects and especially the ending of this book are a little confusing so I'm anxious to move onto book 3 to see how this all ends!

I love Devon Monk. Every book I've read of hers, which now totals 4 I have enjoyed.

The world building in this series is so compelling that I can't wait for the next book to be out later in the year.
Devon Monk's House Immortal series continues to delight me. I absolutely love the idea of her world and characters - her galvanized, scientist-created beings that give subtle nods to the classic Frankenstein tale, bringing a very new, very unique story to the Urban Fantasy genre.

After the events of the previous book in the series, House Immortal, Matilda Case's newly discovered world off the farm is left in a state of upheaval with the galvanized being thought of as the new enemy. On the run wit

My English review

The first volume was for me a real jewel, so I was curious to immerse myself in the following novel. I was a little anxious, afraid of being disappointed, but I should not have, because as always Devon Monk blew me away with her ideas! Oh yes, because once again, the series clashes with her originality and her characters and it remains amazing throughout the story.

We thus find our characters immediately after the end of the first volume. Abraham was seri
4.5 stars!!

Infinity Bell is the second novel in Devon Monk’s House Immortal trilogy. Immediately, the story opens from where we left off — as Matilda Case, her brother Quentin, another galvanized Abraham (who is badly wounded), and Neds are running from killer assassins sent by the leader of Houses. Not only are they running for their lives, they are also running out of time. As readers learned from the first book, an experiment called the Wings of Mercury that was set-off by Case’s great-grea

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

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

Devon Monk's skill to keep a world fresh and interesting never ceases to amaze me. And her ability to shake things up? Surpurb. Of course that has a bit of downside as well, as the ending of this one has left me desperate to get my hands on the next installment to see how those wonderful twists play out. But perhaps I'm getting ahead of myself here skipping to already wanting the next one before even telling you why you want this one. Simply

Pre-release Review:

I finished the first book of the House Immortal series last week, the week before Christmas 2014, and I wrote a rave review in which I stated that the only problem was that I couldn't get the second book immediately. Two days later, Devon Monk had made sure that I received an Advanced Reading Copy of Infinity Bell, the second book. The novel won't appear on shelves until March, but I was lucky enough to read it on the plane from Oregon to New Jersey just before Christmas. I wa

My what an amazing imagination this author has! I am in awe at the world building and just had no idea what on earth I had stumbled across. Unfortunately I hadn't seen the release of the previous book so came to this story somewhat blind but as I started to read my eyes just could not believe the words I was readng. Was I really reading about a possible future with beings that Victor Frankenstein could have created? A world divided by greedy despots ruling political Houses who only seek more ...more

This is the second book in the House Immortal trilogy. The third book, Crucible Zero, is scheduled to come out this September. I have been absolutely loving this series. It’s action packed, creative, and full of fun characters.

Tilly, Abraham, Quinten, and Ned are on the run after the events in the first book. They have also just found out from Quinten that time is going to mend soon and when it does all the galvanized will die. They are in a race against time to try and travel back in time to tr

Probably more of a 2.5.

I didn't like this near as much as the first book in this series. I felt like nothing really happened until the last few pages, and then a bunch of things happened way too fast to have much impact. New characters were introduced and not really given much at all to do...which may be rectified in the final book, but if you're going to bring a character in, you shouldn't completely ignore them which is what I felt happened here. Like my problem with the first book, I felt tha

Seriously, if you’re thinking about reading this series, don’t read it now! Let me rephrase. Wait until the entire series is finished!! Each book ends on a cliffhanger. Trust me. I’m saving you tons of frustration.

This book takes the series in an entirely different time travelling direction. Don’t get me wrong, it still features stitched up Frankenstein’s monsters. However, this story picks right up where the last one left off with the group trying to evade capture. That’s pretty much the whole
"Love clouds our eyes and fills our ears," Abraham said. "There is no cure for it."
Thankfully, Infinity Bell picks up where House Immortal's painful cliffhanger left us dangling. Without sharing, well, much of anything, I will tell you this ... There is love, loss, and betrayal. There aren't many the gang can trust. Matilda's life and the lives of those she loves is at stake. In an effort to fix what's broken, she must take a huge leap of faith. They've only got one shot at this or do they?

I loved the first book so much I had to start this one right away, now I wish there were more in the series available to read. Second books are rarely as good as the first because the world is already established and the wonder of discovery is no longer there. This began exactly how I thought it would, with plenty of running and pages of chase scenes. Those are my least favorite aspects of Urban Fantasy, but they are pretty much unavoidable. The sections that contained actual plot were worth ...more

So freakin good! My only complaint of this series is that the villain, Slater Orange, is written very one dimensionally, I like my villains with a little more depth instead of just crazy power hungry evil.
