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. The Bonfire Chronicles is Imogen’s new YA paranormal series.
Imogen is a self-confessed Hermès addict who enjoys shopping, traveling, watching movies and playing with her dog, Tallulah

This is another book that I simply could not put down. Oh and there is even a sort of love triangle, but I totally did not care!lol. That is unusual for me. If you love the sort of boarding school paranormal books you are in for a treat.
When we first met Cordelia I just was not sure if I was going to like her. But after a few pages I decided I really did. Once she has to mentor the young half demon half human girl she showed me a totally different person. She took her mentor duty seriously and even almost was killed for it.
This is one of those books there is just so much going on. Cordelia has a boyfriend but she also "synched" with another guy. This is where the love triangle came in, but it was nicely done that it never truly bothered me. Then there is also the fact that shifters tried to kill her the very first day back, the girl she is mentoring is a blood magnet to the vamps, and this was suppose to be her relaxing year.
We also have a story within the story Faustine (the girl Claudia is mentoring) well she is a half demon but anytime her demon side wants to take over she magically disappears and reappears with no knowledge how she got there. Then in comes Jaggers brother who is also just a huge bag of mystery.
So we have all these things going on and I was just hooked to the pages. I needed to see what was going to happen. I liked how this book was a YA book but with adult twists. I loved almost every second of it. The only thing I did not like was the ending. It seemed to end out of nowhere and it wasn't so much of a cliffhanger ending but it ended without getting to know a lot of things I wanted to know. It was still a fun ride and will be looking forward (or hoping) to see more of these characters!
