BLOG TOUR! Integration by Imogen Rose


Integration (Bonfire Academy, #2)At the Other End:
Second Haiku warning:

A boyfriend missing
A lover must pay in blood
A princess must die

Welcome back to Bonfire Academy.


Shhh....... Don't Tell:

I am about to be a tease....well this is a teaser from Integration. Same thing.

Broken. I couldn’t think of a better word to describe it. I felt as if I’d been torn to bits, maybe even shredded. I was suffocating, surrounded by a wet tightness of skin and flesh all crusted together. My body was home to excruciating stabs of pain searing about randomly before a final thrust of sheer agony. I couldn’t tell if the source of the pain was within me or if I was being repeatedly sliced open with a knife. Did it matter? I felt as though it was only a matter of seconds before my thoughts would end.


My name. I flinched as the same voice repeated my name again and again. Why? Who was it? It—he—sounded familiar. I heaved as the voice triggered the memory of his face. Then, not being able to stop the bile from traveling up my throat, I gagged and purged, emptying my stomach completely. The next time he muttered my name, his voice was laced with disgust. But his revulsion couldn’t compete with my utter repugnance and disbelief at what he’d done. Him. Someone I had trusted with my life, even though the rule was clear:

Trust No One.

Imogen interviews Jagger and Octavia!


I have to be honest. I approached this interview with some hesitation, perhaps even a little trepidation. After all, even though I feel I know him a bit through Cordelia, I’ve never experienced Jagger directly. As he sits before me, I can empathize with Cordelia. He is impossibly magnetic, his aura both powerful and dangerous, the only release, a hint of humor gleaming in his silver-gray eyes. I met with him in St. Moritz, just before the start of Faustine’s Integration year.

Are you excited about starting a new year at the Academy?
I am, though I’m not exactly sure what my role will be this year. I guess I’ll find out when I get there.

So, you’re not heading back as the Student Council President?
I wouldn’t think so. That position is usually only awarded for a year. Plus, my time at the academy is officially over.

Why are you going back, then?
Mainly to keep an eye on my brother, Ryker.

And Cordelia?
Yes, hmm. You said that you had some questions from my fans...

I do! Here is one from Sean Sweeney. He wants to know what you got Cordelia for Valentine’s Day.
Myself. However, like any girl, she obviously needed a “token” as well. I got her a little secret something from Harry Winston.

Nice! The next question is about Cordelia as well. Al Kunz, the infamous celeb book blogger, aka The Snake, wants to know what really happened on the slopes. He wants details.
He couldn’t handle the details.

LOL! There you have it, Al! Moving on... Michelle Cable wants to know what you thought when you first saw Cordelia and what you thought of that electrifying kiss.
That she’s stunning is apparent to all who are lucky enough to behold her. I was struck by her beauty as soon as I saw her, when she first arrived at the academy. It was my policy to stay away from demons, though. Every kiss with her is electrifying, but I’m guessing you mean our very first kiss. I was shocked, but immediately realized what had happened.

Too bad that doesn’t happen to humans. Synching sounds unbelievably intimate...
It is, but the realization that one is bound forever to this one being frightening, too. That’s unnatural in the supernatural world.

I can see that. Faustine seems to bridge the gap between the human and the paranormal worlds. My daughter Lauren wants to know what you think of Faustine, and Vickie Boehnlein wants to know if you’re scared of Faustine.
I love Faustine. She’s like a little sister to me. I feel very protective of her, even though I know that she can take care of herself. And yes, I’m scared of her. I’d be stupid not to be. She’s one of the most powerful demons I’ve ever come across.

10. Demons seem to like their food, meat in particular. Lynn O’Dell would like to know if you prefer filet mignon or T-bones?
I’m not a demon, but I do prefer Filet Mignon.


Octavia is the enrichment student at the Academy who represents Cordelia at the Student Council trial. Like all my characters, she was born in my imagination, this time inspired by my awesome friend and editor, Sue Bernstein, who is also a lawyer. During the editing process, something odd happened. Sue adopted Octavia into her own imagination, and Octavia seemed to become a manifestation of Sue’s personality. It was a weird, but wonderful thing, and a total hoot. For the first time, my story had a character who seemed to have taken over a life of her own outside my own imagination. So it was only natural to ask Sue my questions for Octavia. I met with her just before Faustine’s Integration year.

Where did you attend to law school?
From the time I was a kid growing up in the mid-western US, I always wanted to live in New York. So I applied to only one law school—a prestigious school in Manhattan that shall remain nameless—and got in! I spent three blissful years in Manhattan before being turned.

When were you turned into a vampire? How old were you?
That’s a day I'll never forget—I was turned on graduation day. What began as the happiest day of my life, graduation from law school, ended with fangs in my neck and me undead forever. I was… am twenty-six years old.

I am guessing you were turned by someone eminent, hence you being sent here to the Academy. Are you able to share who?
While I am not at liberty to divulge the name, suffice it to say that he was one of my law professors, who told me he had very big plans for me. No kidding big plans! When not teaching evening classes in New York, he teaches an introduction to paranormal jurisprudence class at Bonfire Academy.

What were the circumstances in which you were turned?
The professor who turned me was my mentor. I trusted him and worked side-by-side with him for three years. At least he waited for me to graduate before he turned me but studying for the NY Bar Exam while trying to control my brand-new powers was a bit hairy!

What will you do once your time at the Academy is over?
My mentor/professor/attacker still has big plans for me.

What do you think of Jagger?
For a winter, that faery is definitely H-O-T!

How close to you feel to him after letting him drink your blood? Do you feel he belongs to you in any way?
As trite as this sounds, faeries belong to no one. That said, however, Jagger and I have a very close bond. Mmm.

Do you like Cordelia?
Like is such an odd word for a vampire to use. Cordelia was my client, and I respect her. You didn't think you'd pin down a lawyer, did you?

What do you think is up between her and Jagger?
Oh, goodness! Something for sure. I can sense it in my blood.

Are you coming back to school next year, during Faustine’s Integration year?
Yes! But as staff.
