Review: Initiation by Imogen Rose

Initiation by Imogen Rose
Pages: 412
Publisher: Self-Published
Genre: YA Paranormal

Welcome to Bonfire Academy. Set in the foothills of the alpine mountains in St.Moritz, this exclusive private school caters to a special kind of student. Enter at your own risk... but if you are human, you may not want to enter at all.
Initiation by Imogen Rose was exactly what I thought it would be, which is a good thing. I went in expected an action-packed novel about a boarding school full of magical and diverse creatures--and that's what I got.

This is part one of the prequel series to the Bonfire Chronicles books, which is already out, so in a way it's setting the scene for the future books. It's introducing you to characters who will play more important roles in the future. One of those characters in Faustine, whom the second series will focus on.

But, the main character in this book is Cordelia. She's a demon, and it's funny because she doesn't act the way I would think a demon should. She was nice, and protective of Faustine, who is a younger demon that was in her care. Just like Cordelia's boyfriend, Quinn. He was also always there for both Cordelia and Faustine, so trusting and loving, that I loved him! Which is why I'm a bit undecided as to which team I'm on, Quinn, or Jagger--Jagger is the student council president of the school and kind of a bad boy. As of right now, I'm split evenly between them, so I have to read on and see which one I like best!

There was never a boring moment for Initiation, I can tell you that. None of the characters ever got a break, because something crazy or bad always happened. I loved how, when the book ended, it tied up some loose ends, but I still had tons of burning questions that I wanted answers to.

Overall, I give Initiation 4 stars. A good read, and if you're really a fan of paranormal boarding school stories, definitely pick this one up!

  1. This is my favorite book right now. The images are so clear in my head like all I did was watch a movie. I am team Jagger all the way, but I do love Quinn because he has such a good heart. Hopefully he can find someone else because Jagger and Cordelia are so much fun to read! I have always been one for the bad boy though so lol :).
