Oh, Imogen Rose. I love to hate this author. Two to four times per year, I lose nearly an entire night's sleep. I blame her. I really need her to write a bad book because what ends up happening is that I'm up until 4am, sucked into the world that she weaves and feel hung over with lack of sleep the next day. She's due for a bad book, right? All authors have that book that makes them cringe later, right? I was hopeful that this would be the one. Alas, it was not meant to be. I ended up really enjoying this book. I thought for sure she would switch back to Faustine for her next book. While I like Faustine's story, I really don't like the character all that much. I'm hoping she grows up and stops being such a freaking whiney brat soon. I get that I don't have to like every character, but I was so relieved that this book was told by and centered more on Cordelia (who is easily my favorite character in this series). This book moves us along in Cordelia, Faustine and the gangs lives. We learn a little more about their pasts, a whole lot about their presents and have a glimpse into their future. The authors writing, as we have come to expect, is near perfection and the editing is impeccable. Extremely well done 3rd book for this series. If someone held me down and made me say something critical of this book, it would have to be that I didn't like the large chunks of time jumps. Imogen does this with most of her writing, but this one felt a little off and restarting the story felt slightly disjointed because of it. I've mentioned before about this author... she is compared to Harry Potter or Twilight, and while I agree the genres are similar, the writing has a darker undertone and her protagonists usually have much more depth. I'll bet Hogwarts never had a student eat another one, gosh darn it. Seriously though, the genres are similar, but the style is different. Integration has some dark writing, which one would expect as the story progresses and moves forward. I would probably let my 9 and 11 year old read it, but any younger than that, I think the carnage might be a little too much. Having said THAT, I'm pretty lenient on what my children read and I figure if they can read it, go for it. There are some curse words, but they aren't just thrown around. Overall, an awesome addition to this series by a very talented author. Well done. Recommended for almost all ages and fans of the author and this series. I would go back and read the first two, however. I think the background knowledge is needed. Note: A free copy of this book was provided to me by the author. I usually end up buying them anyway so I can share it with friends.

Reviewed by Crystal Book provided by Bewitching Book Tour  Review originally posted at Romancing the Book  I will start out by saying that this isn’t my usual kind of book. So I was a little out of my comfort zone when I started reading Integration. I can say that I got hooked and read it all in one day. I can’t really decide if there really is a main character in this book. Some characters have more parts as others but there really isn’t just one. I could be wrong because I didn’t get to read the first one. I didn’t feel like I was missing much because I was taken back to certain parts in the first book to explain things. I really enjoyed that I got to see so many paranormals in one place. I got to see witches, vampires, demons, shifters, trolls, and fairies to just name a few. I also got to meet new ones like trackers, and wanderers. It was great to have an academy that everyone could go to and help them with their powers. I enjoyed all the testing that was done to fit everyone’s needs. Classes for everyone to get introduced to so that they can get along out in the real world. There were so many twist and turns going on that I never knew what was going to happen next. It has a good plot and it was fastly paced. I had no problem keeping up. Just when I thought I had it all figured out something else would happen and make me second guess myself. I will be waiting in anticipation for the next book. It gives you a little hint at the end of the book. Just enough to get you in it’s clutches and just leaves you hanging. So if the third one is as great as this one then she has really outdone herself. I highly recommend this book to anyone. If you love a book with some romance, suspense, mystery, and highly intense then you will love this book. So I’m hoping that everything goes good for Cordelia, Faustine, Harry, Quinn, Jagger, and Mason. That is just a few of the characters. Some are good and some are bad but you’ll have to find out for yourself just who is who. So happy reading and let’s hope the bad one’s gets whats coming to them.

So, I read Initiation (the book immediately before this one) and then I read this one and realized that there is a whole other series that takes place before these books, so now I'm devouring those (the very first one is Portal) and going in the right order now. So, obviously, I enjoyed this book thoroughly. It was difficult to put down sometimes.

If you’d told me two years ago that I’d be reading books that were not only young adult, but full of paranormal characters, I’d have called you crazy. But I got sucked in by reading the first of Imogen Rose’s Portal series, which convinced me young adult didn’t mean a grandparent was too old to enjoy it. It snuck in a small dose of the paranormal, so I was open to giving it a try when she started a series that was definitely paranormal. Now I’m hooked. Integration has only set the hook deeper. The Bonfire Academy series is a prequel to The Bonfire Chronicles, which currently has only one book, Faustine. Integration bridges the time from the end of Initiation to the start of Faustine. The focus is largely on Cordelia, although many of the students are returning, including one in particular who generates much of the book’s conflict. Some new characters also make their first appearances and shake things up. I’m always impressed by Rose’s ability to introduce and integrate new characters in an ongoing series and to craft an engrossing story, which is aptly demonstrated here. But what struck me as I was reflecting on Integration was that she’s done a first class job of world building without me realizing it. When I think of a typical book in the fantasy or science fiction genres, I expect a large part of that will be describing a world that is much different than anything in real life, while having enough aspects of the real world for us to be able to relate. While Rose’s world exists on the same planet we live on and sometimes her characters visit that world, I realized that that what she has done with the Bonfire Academy series is created a world that is just as foreign to the world I live in as a story taking place on Planet X. None of the characters are 100% human. Their emotions, reactions, and powers are, at most, sometimes human-like, but more often not. Maybe the reason it took me this long to realize this is that their goals aren’t that much different from those of a human teenager: Survive school, have fun, and find someone to hook up with. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

Integration is the second book in the Bonfire Academy Prequels to FAUSTINE (Bonfire Chronicles) and this book seemlessly ties the series together. It gives the reader a much better picture of the mysteries that Faustine will face. Imogen Rose manages to write stories with believable characters that live in an wonderfully unbelievable world. This world is filled with magic and mystery, wealth and fashion woven into a story of teenage coming of age and young love. It is pure guilt-free whimsical fantasy!

My review of “Integration” (Book 2 of “The Bonfire Academy” series; Book 3 of “The Bonfire Chronicles”) By: Imogen Rose Welcome Back to Bonfire Academy! Bonfire Academy is set in the foothills of the alpine mountains in St.Moritz. It is an exclusive private school that caters to a special kind of student, a “paranormal”; Demons, Witches, Fairies, Wanderers, Trolls, Shifters, Vampires, Hybrids, etc. We are reintroduced to Cordelia, demon Princess of Paris, and mentor to Faustine (demon/human hybrid, and demon Princess of London). Faustine is also Heir to the demon throne of London; only she doesn’t that know yet. The prologue of this book sets it up to be the masterpiece that it is. You won’t want to stop reading it after the first two pages, trust me. Cordelia, Jagger, and Quinn are back after graduating from BA and completing their enrichment years (optional year at the Academy to mentor an initiate, or further develop a skill). Cordelia is the apprentice to Professor Bern, head of the Department of Paranormal Powers and Control. (One of her favorite parts of the job is the fact that she doesn’t have to wear the school uniform)! Cordelia will be assisting Professor Bern with her “tests” on the students; tests aimed to help them achieve their goal to graduate. The goal of Integration year is to be able to control your powers, and be able to integrate with humans and different paranormals alike. At Bonfire Academy, Faustine is entering into her second year, her Integration year. Being a human/demon hybrid, Faustine is concerned that she will not graduate this year due to the challenges hybrids face (especially the first human hybrid at the Academy, ever). Mason (the antagonist in the first book of the series) is back to his old tricks again. His father, Monsieur Drasco, managed to get him back into the Academy after he was expelled for almost killing Cordelia the previous year. The love triangle of Jagger, Quinn, and Cordelia is also back in action. She does finally chose who she wants to be with in this book. Which may make some happy and some upset (Team Quinn or Team Jagger). Once again Imogen Rose takes us into their world and doesn’t let up. You will constantly be thrown off; this author knows how to keep you on your toes! My favorite parts of this book have to be the addition of Haikus. My favorite one being: “A boyfriend missing A lover must pay in blood A princess must die”. There are other awesome ones as well, but you will have to read for yourself to find out! Side note: To any of the readers who have read Imogen Rose’s other books (The Portal Chronicles), you will be BLOWN AWAY. Imogen Rose has a writing style unlike anything I have ever seen. She manages to take you into her imagination and become a part of her world. Her characters pop up in places so unexpected. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. No question about it, it’s a MUST READ! *THE EPILOGUE will have you screaming for more. And those are the BEST kind of books!
