Kurzbeschreibung

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.

Dieses Buch hat mich sehr gefesselt obwohl ich zuerst der Meinung war das hier die Bonfire Academy Geschichte in irgendeiner Weise weiter erzählt wird oder ergänzt. Dem ist nicht so. Dieses Buch steht ganz für sich alleine und erzählt wie der Name schon sagt von Faustine der Hybridin (Halb Mensch Halb Dämon). Dieses Geschichte setzt zu dem Punkt an als ihr Vater KÖnig sebastian am Ende des 2 Bonfire Academy Buches verschwindet.
Sie muss lernen als Teenager nicht nur ihre Probleme zu bewältigen sondern auch die der Dämonen.

Sehr spannend!

Faustine, Tochter des Dämonenkönigs Sebastian hat Ihre Ausbildung in einem exklusiven Schweizer Internat abgeschlossen und kehrt nach Hause zu ihrer menschlichen Mutter zurück um zur Highschool zu gehen. Als ihr Vater entführt wird sieht sie sich vor der Aufgabe, den Vater zu retten und gleichzeitig zur vorläufigen Königin von London gekrönt zu werden.
Faustine war leicht zu lesen, die Ideen rund um Dämonen, Hexen, Wanderer, und Vampire kennen wir schon aus den Portal Chronicles. Da es auch hier fast ausschließlich um Teenager geht, scheint mir das Buch auch für die Altersgruppe geschrieben zu sein. Die Lektüre ist nicht besonders anspruchsvoll, aber auch nicht so trivial oder plump geschrieben, dass man sich bei jedem zweiten Satz "fremdschämen" muss.

Wer das Buch gerne lesen möchte sollte vielleicht mit mit dem Buch "Bonfire Chronicles, Acadamy (Band1)" anfangen. Dort erfährt man, wie die sehr junge Faustine im Internat ankommt und lernt, Ihre dämonischen Fähigkeiten zu kontrollieren.

Fazit: Ein Buch das man lesen kann, aber nicht unbedingt gelesen haben muss. Langweilig ist es jedenfalls nicht. darum 3 Sterne.

Wie bereits bei anderen Büchern vermerkt, die Sprunghaftigkeit der doch irgendwie auf einenader abgestimmten Bücher, zeitliche Sprüngen "verderben den Brei", sonst spannend genug, um auf Fortsetzung zu warten.

Mir haben die Bücher bisher ziemlich gut gefallen, aber ich habe dieses noch nicht gelesen. Der Grund meines Schreibens ist, dass ich das Buch gerne auf deutsch lesen würde! Bitte die deutsche Übersetzung! Das Buch endet so spannend, ich würde es so gerne weiterlesen!

HASH(0x93904fd8) von 5 Sternen Imogen Rose is a genius... an evil genius. 28. Februar 2011
Von CandysRaves (and Rants) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm really going to try to write this without spoilers because fans of The Portal Chronicles will undoubtedly read this next series - The Bonfire Chronicles. Imogen Rose does not disappoint with the first book of this series. Her smooth and easy-flow writing continue with this book. I couldn't decide if I wanted to curl up with a glass of wine (err, orange juice, it is YA afterall) or if I wanted to sit up in bed and read it quickly before I fell asleep. I did a bit of both, in the end :)

Her characters have depth, with a lot more room to grow in the coming books. But where the author shines is her ability to write a YA novel where I actually like the main characters. It's very rare that I don't want to smother the main characters and I kind of wanted to adopt Faustine. It's all very confusing because I keep looking for a character that I hate. I didn't even hate the bad guys all that much.

The cover art for this edition kind of grabs you. Who is the girl with the red eyes and what is her story? I will admit that her story was absolutely nothing like I thought it would be. To be brutally honest, I wasn't sure if Ms. Rose could pull it off. The Portal Chronicles were well done, but very niched. I thought if she stuck to what she knows, we'd be okay, but while the book first unfolded and we found out more about Faustine I was wondering how'd she pull it off. Well, she certainly pulled it off. The woman has a gift...

.... until I got to a certain part of the book. I don't want to give anything away, but a certain word in the book sent me running around to search my books from her first series. Imogen Rose is a genius... an evil genius. I just... oh, I want to say more, but you guys would hate me if I ruin it! Having said that, it's VERY small and you do NOT have to have read the first series to read this one. It was just a... thing.

The story itself is well written. The storyline unfolds with grace and and pace. The plot is well-thought-out and well-planned, but leaves enough room to add in a few surprises. I was shocked when I learned Faustine's secret. It came a bit out of left field, but a very pleasant surprise - I was folded in and felt invested in her life and what was going on around (and within) her.

I realize I'm not telling you much here, but I don't want to give anything away from the description (make sure you read it!). Just trust me... it's a great book and makes my "must read" for the year.

This book is recommended for for fans of Young Adult books and those who are looking for something easy and fun to read.

HASH(0x938fe93c) von 5 Sternen Who is Faustine? You'll find out and want more 2. März 2011
Von Sean M. Sweeney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An absolute hit is on Imogen Rose's hands with Faustine, a 15-year-old who, as the tale opens, has returned home from Bonfire Academy. At this Swiss boarding school -- a school that encourages silence and feeding -- she learns to control her paranormal abilities. A few days after her return, she learns her father -- the Demon King of London -- has been kidnapped.

Rose does a fantastic job of taking the reader into the life of a 15-year-old teen who is struggling to discover herself, only to find out that her father has named her as his heir. She also has a new love interest in her life, one whose elders don't want him to get involved with Faustine. Add in a high school clique that seems to look down on paranormals -- a nifty little twist in there, too -- as well as a jealous half sister, and this book is a sure-fire winner.

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.

HASH(0x938194bc) von 5 Sternen A KindleObsessed Review 11. März 2011
Von Misty Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
For someone that reads as much as I do, it's nice (every once and a while) to settle in for the night with a nice familiar author; an author I KNOW can write an entertaining and captivating story; so when the opportunity presented itself to read "Faustine" the first book in the "Bonfire Chronicles" by the lovely Imogen Rose, I jumped at the chance to get my grubby little paws on it. I have never been shy with my adoration of Rose's ability to connect with her readers through her work, so my continued appreciation for her new venture should come as no surprise.

Faustine is a demon. Well, ok, that's not exactly accurate... Faustine is a half human/half demon hybrid princess who is about to be thrust into a very sticky situation. With her father's sudden disappearance, Faustine, (though only 15,) finds herself with a very large pair of shoes to fill, and by large I mean people-are-being-slaughtered-and-it's-her-duty-to-stop-it large. But finding a paranormal serial killer isn't as easy as calling the cops. With (not only) her emotions, but her new advisors pulling her in 100 different directions Faustine finds herself on the brink of disaster. Can she find the killer before they harm anyone else? Who can she REALLY trust to keep her secrets, and at the end of the day will Faustine be able to keep it together or crumbled under the pressure of a whole culture of anxiety riddled paranormals?

There were (of course) a few things that annoyed me throughout this book, but first let me focus on the positive. #1. This book was REALLY good. I love paranormal adventures and "Faustine" had it all; action, intrigue, even a successful amount of angst shoved in for good measure. One better... Rose chose to expand her readers experience by leaving doors open. While most paranormal novels focus on 1 or 2 specific types of "creatures/humans" Rose opted for equal opportunity play time. There were demons, witches, warlocks, wanderers, vampires... blah ditty blah, chances are, if you've ever heard about them, they were in this book. And yes, yes.. I know what you are thinking, "Wouldn't that make the book a little crowded?" Surprisingly...no! Rose's plot was practically flawless, leaving no room for her characters to bump into each other or fight for control "inside" the development of the book.

Now, the bad. I know Imogen on a personal level, so for me... overlooking some of her idiosyncrasies aren't an issue, however, for those of you that aren't fluent in "Im Speak" you might find yourself rolling your eyes at her name dropping tendencies. For example: " My feet were starting to ache in the five-inch Louboutins." To me this says "Im found a new pair shoes she's crazy about" to your everyday reader this sounds like blatant product placement. The other (very minor) issue I had was Rose's lack of confidence in her readers ability to note sarcasm. On more than one occasion the word "not" was thrown at the end of a sentence to emphasis the previous statements ridiculousness, and on more than one occasion this was completely unnecessary. Thankfully, neither of these issues are deal breakers when it comes to the overall success of the novel, let's just call them "nuggets of annoyingness."

So, what did I think overall? Well.. duh, fantastic concept, fantastically executed, and a promising start to a new series.

Get it, Live it, Love it... pass it on!

Happy Reading my fellow Kindle-ites and remember: if you are 159 years old and plan on seducing someone, get a pedicure!

HASH(0x93448558) von 5 Sternen An elaborate, fast-paced paranormal mystery 3. März 2011
Von Fiktshun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Faustine Spencer may seem like every other Upper East Side socialite. She grew up with all the privileges that wealth affords - a nanny, doormen, car service, access to all the latest fashions and the opportunity to attend an exclusive boarding school.

But Bonfire Academy isn't just your typical Swiss preparatory school where the well-to-do leave their children to a life of study, skiing and partying. And Faustine's attendance isn't optional.

At the age of fifteen, after three years apart from her family, learning everything she could from the Academy, she is allowed to return home to New York to her mother. Faustine just wants to pick up where she left off with her normal teenage lifestyle of school, shopping and hanging out with her best friend, Neave. But her return is conditional and failure to comply will have consequences.

Bonfire Academy has only three rules. One, you do not talk about the Academy. Two, you trust no one. And three, the most important of them all - never miss a meal.

***

Faustine is an elaborate, fast-paced paranormal mystery with a multitude of suspects and a "to be continued" ending. The story has a number of twists and turns and just when you think you've identified whodunit, think again.

While this book is just over three hundred pages, there is so much going on that it becomes difficult at times to keep up with what the many characters are up to, where they stand in the scheme of things, who they are and what Faustine's opinion is of them.

There are an overwhelming number of key characters in this book, and with almost everyone a suspect with something to hide, and no one for Faustine to truly trust, the mystery becomes a bit muddled, as there just isn't enough time to fully develop their characters and motivations. As the story continues there are more and more elements added into this mystery, more secret relationships discovered and more paranormal abilities attributed to each character than were initially known.

The action is virtually non-stop, so when the pace does slow to include some of the more normal events like attending school, relaxing or watching television, it doesn't flow naturally. Even the relationship between Ryker and Faustine feels somewhat forced and in this book in the series no real explanation is given as to why the two who virtually had no contact in the three years they attended school are now an instant couple.

The complexities and pace aside, author Imogen Rose has created an engaging story with a slew of interesting characters. The author's writing does flow, with brief touches of humor added in, and will keep you connected with the main character and the story as it progresses.

There are many characters still to meet, heredities to be determined, alliances to be uncovered and bad guys still to be caught.

And for those who haven't yet read this book, you'll soon find out just who Faustine really is.

HASH(0x937ec030) von 5 Sternen Good beginning to great new Paranormal series! 13. Mai 2011
Von Jackie Burris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Faustine (Bonfire Chronicles Book One)is the first book that I have read by author Imogen Rose and the first in her Bonfire Chronicles series...

This particular YA read is also one that can be enjoyed by the older generation of readers like myself... It is very fast paced, has many complex twists and turns to keep the plot flowing and the reader guessing...

There are quite a few characters in the story to keep track of and their individual relationships with Faustine can at times be a bit confusing or overwhelming but each and every one is integral to the plot line as it develops...

This is the very intense story of a 15 year old girl who is thrust into a role that she was not expecting and she at times handles it very badly and at others with a wisdom and grace that is far beyond her years... There is plenty of action and the intrigue is thick enough to cut with a knife!

Faustine is a very unique teenager, she is a half human/half demon princess who though raised within a privileged atmosphere is unaware of her heritage until it is thrust upon her when her father goes missing and her life is threatened.

What takes place after she is made aware of her place in the demon heirarchy is pretty intense and throughout the story the reader is thrown curve ball after curve ball because it is hard for Faustine to know who to trust and who is not trustworthy!

The hook to the book is Who is Faustine? The journey of discovery that the author has penned to find all the answers to this question is one that you will enjoy and even though it ends in a cliffhanger you will want to read it because the concept of the story is fantastic and the execution is well done... This is a beginning to a series that you will want to continue with whether you are a YA reader, an action suspense junkie like me or just a huge fan of Paranormal genre in general as all these elements are represented and more in this one book!
