Who is Faustine? When Faustine Spencer was five years old, she discovered a secret that changed her life forever. At twelve, her parents sent her to Bonfire Academy in Switzerland to ensure that she received the training needed to control her increasing powers.

Three years later, Faustine returns to Manhattan. All she wants is to be a typical teenager, at least, one that’s part of the in-crowd at her Upper East Side High School. When drop-dead gorgeous Ryker, her long-time crush from the Academy, finally notices her, she couldn’t be happier.

However, her desire for a normal life is shattered when her father, a prominent sovereign, disappears after naming her as his successor. Her siblings begin to disappear, and Faustine finds herself in the midst of a power struggle. With her life in danger, Faustine must learn to follow one of Bonfire Academy’s most important rules: Trust no one.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I don’t know how she does it, but Imogen outdoes herself which each new book. Faustine is, by far, my favorite IR book so far. I can begin to describe how much I loved it. It was very different from the Portal series, but in a good way. I loved the whole concept, and can’t wait for the rest of the series.


I actually found myself being pulled into this book so easily. It has a quick but well explained story line, which makes for a fun and action filled read. I am beginning to believe that Imogen Rose can write anything and execute it in a way that appeals to every age.

Faustine is a good read for any age. There isn’t profanity or sexual situations. It is clean cut. Some scenes do have a violent nature so I would suggest maybe a 12 and up age group. But overall this is a fantastic read and I would suggest it to my 11 year old niece to read. In fact she will be reading it very soon. If i could rate this book any higher I would!


As a fan of the Portal Chronicles, I was excited to hear that Imogen Rose was writing a new series.

Faustine is an action packed paranormal mystery. I don’t want to give away the plot but it is fast paced with the twists, turns and OMG moments that I have come to expect and love from Ms. Rose. I found the characters and relationships to be very believable despite the fact that most of the characters are paranormal beings.

I am so looking forward to the next Bonfire Chronicles book!

About The Author

Imogen Rose is the author of the bestselling YA series, the Portal Chronicles. She was born in a small town in Sweden and moved to London in her twenties. After obtaining a PhD in immunology from Imperial College, she moved with her family to New Jersey, where she’s been based for the past ten years.

For as long as she can remember, Imogen has dreamt stories. Stories that continued from night to night, from dream to dream. So, even as a child, going to bed was never an issue, just an anticipation of the story to come.

PORTAL, Imogen’s first novel, would have remained in her imagination, to be shared only with her daughter, Lauren, had her eight-year-old not insisted that she write it down. In the course of a month, Imogen typed while Lauren waited eagerly by the printer for the pages to appear, and a novel took shape.

The warm reception Portal received encouraged her to continue with the story and the Portal Chronicles. Book two (Equilibrium) and book three (Quantum) are now available. Book four, Momentum, will be available this summer. Faustine is Imogen’s first book in her new series, the Bonfire Chronicles.

Imogen is a self-confessed Hermès addict who enjoys shopping, traveling, watching movies and playing with her dog, Tallulah.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Imogen Rose and ENT appreciate it.
