Price: $0.99

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 read this book in one sitting. I don’t read many in one sitting. And I don’t read many YA paranormal books, so believe me that this one will appeal to a large audience.

You will learn who Faustine is as you read this book, and the cliffhanger will make you wonder — and leave you aching for book two.


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!


Rose really knocked my socks off with this one! I am a huge fan of her Portal Chronicles so when I heard Rose was coming out with a YA paranormal, of course I had to jump on it! Rose has always had an interesting mind so I knew that Faustine was going to be a wild ride, and a wild ride it was!

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.
