”House Immortal” is the first in a new series of fantasy novels from Devon Monk. Monk captures the reader from the first page where she introduces Matilda Case one of the thirteen experiments creations known as the galvanized being. They are people who are immortal and are not considered to have any rights because they also are not considered to be human. There are many different ruling houses that are at war with each other and the galvanized beings. “House Immortal” like many great novels and movies of science fiction tackles many social issues and does it very well. Monk is off to a great start with this excellent tale of fantasy fiction.
