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...
Crucible Zero by Devon Monk
Everything she knew has now changed. In an attempt to fix the damage done by time travel, Matilda undid her own history. The problem is Slater still remembers the “use to be” past as well. With his power greedy hands, Slater will do anything to eradicate Matilda and those she holds dear. Any wrong move, might rip the world apart.
Buckle yourselves in for this mind bending, suspense intense, whirl wind of a conclusion to the House Immortal trilogy.
I wasn't sure the direction this book was going to take after all the changes that happened in the second book in this series so I was a bit reluctant to continue on. My fears were for naught. I honestly didn’t realize this was the end, Monk left enough for this storyline to carry on. Don’t worry though, Monk does keep Matilda’s future hanging in the balance till the very end and I was happy with the outcome.
Once again, I find myself reading a time traveling plot. It seems there are a lot of them out there and if you follow my reviews you know I’m not a huge fan of the time travel based story. That being said, Crucible Zero was a complete mind twisting adventure. Monk seriously proved me wrong and I found myself thrilled I jumped onto this ride.
I received this ARC copy of Crucible Zero from PENGUIN GROUP Berkley, NAL / Signet Romance, DAW - ROC in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 1, 2015.
