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 . . .
I think what I loved again about this series is the whole concept of the main character Matilda. I mean who doesn’t love a character that was created by being stitched together. I think why I loved her though is because she seemed so normal even when you knew that she wasn’t. She had all the same fears and goals as a normal girl her age with have especially with all she had to deal with. We get back into this one by having Tilly having to try to keep her family and friends safe and out of danger from the other Houses. I love the whole concept of the book with the different Houses and what they all stood for and were about.
As the story continues we got to see more romance between Matilda and Abraham and I loved every minute of it. I like the relationship they are building and the direction it is going in. We also got to meet a new character and I really liked her. I would love to know more about her and Quentin’s relationship though so hopefully book three will go into that. Tilly and the crew are pretty much on a race against time to try to save all the galvanized and the author takes us on a thrill ride along with them. I loved the narrator for this one too as I feel she brought the characters to life and made them all unique characters. Overall this was a great read and I loved every minute of it. I can’t wait to see where the next book takes us.
