Imogen Rose has three distinct series (The Portal Chronicles, The Bonfire Chronicles, and The Bonfire Academy, which is kind of a sub-series of The Bonfire Chronicles). While each had a distinct focus, there was always a bit of overlap in the worlds and the characters. In interviews with Rose it always sounds like the characters inhabiting her mind never stop talking and don’t follow the basic rules like only interacting with others from their series. When the Portal series came to an end I theorized, based on how it wrapped up, that the characters would continue in Rose’s other books. If Uprising is any indication, I think I’m right, as major characters and locations from the Portal Chronicle played minor, but critical roles in this story. The Bonfire Academy series also appeared to be winding down, at least with the initial crop of characters. Uprising brings characters together from all three series and takes their common stories in directions I wouldn’t have predicted although there were hints in Rose’s last couple books. What I liked most about Uprising (besides giving me hope that I’ll be seeing more of the characters from the Portal Chronicles) is two-fold. First is a major expansion of Rose’s fictional world, introducing us to new locations and minor characters in those locations who could develop into significant characters in future installments. The meaning of activating Code Uprising builds on the protocol and structure of the supernatural world Rose has introduced in previous books. The second thing I liked was the introduction of some light science fiction elements into this series (specifically some high-tech weapons and a futuristic transportation method). Thus far the series had been strictly supernatural or paranormal while the Portal Series combined these with some science fiction technology. Mixing the two is something you don’t see often and one of the unique aspects of that series, and now this one too. As with Rose’s previous books, I’m left with enough of a hint of where the ongoing story might be headed to pique my interest, but not so much that I don’t expect to be surprised again. So I’m left, happy with this installment and eager for the next. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **
I absolutely love this series. I can't wait to read the next book.
Warning, I have not read any previous books of this series or connected series, so I may give away things I would not normally do, because I do not know what happened in those other books. So I may have spoilers and not know it. My Review: I was a bit lost at first in this book, and that is completely my own fault, as I had not read any other books in this series, or the connected series, I guess all the different series are connected. That being said, I did catch on enough to enjoy it for sure. I liked the switching of the point of views from Flaustine, and Cordelia. I found I liked Flaustine more at first, and finally warmed up to Cordelia after a bit. I guess I got used to being in Flaustine’s head, but I did find Flaustine a bit annoying at times, especially when she was so wimpy about the spiders and she is a demon, come on! That was just annoying, lol. Besides the immature nature of Flaustine, I did like her for the most part. I really want to go back and read previous books too, want to dig into that past of Cordelia and Jagger who sounds hot and so sweet. So I will be looking into them eventually. I enjoyed the excitement of the action of this story and how it kept me on the edge of my seat pretty much for the whole book. Even though I was clueless to who was who, and what everyone was in the supernatural world I still loved this story. I guess the hardest part for me was keeping so many characters straight in my head, which normally would not be a problem as I assume most these characters were introduced slowly through all those other books. But I did it, thanks to my great memory, lol. I highly recommend this book and the rest that are connected, since I bet they are just as good as this one. It’s a great unique world the author has created, and I loved it. If you like the paranormal and the different supernatural species then you will love this. Seems a few I never heard of in this, maybe just creations by the author, like Wanderers, not sure what they are, but they can teleport, but they call it wander here or there, etc. 5 out of 5 stars for me. Highly recommended! I was given a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.
