Retaliation Blog Tour

Retaliation by Imogen Rose
Bonfire Chronicles ~ Book #3
Publication Date: March 15, 2015

Ever since Bloody Fall, humans have lived in fear. 

Even though the apparently senseless massacres have ended, President Elizabeth Ryan's administration has been under a cloud of disapproval for failing to bring the terrorists to justice. 

She braces herself as a new spate of carnage is unleashed. 

Cordelia and Faustine are recruited back into action as the supernatural agencies go on high alert. Has their nemesis re-emerged?

Her best yet!, March 30, 2015
With each new adventure I fall deeper in love with these characters. Each one reminding me why I love them so. Cordelia & Jagger are still my favorites, but I always enjoy Faustine & the others as well. Watching them grow up & mature is fascinating (& sometimes infuriating). I simply can not get enough of this fantastically complex world Imogen has created. And sheesh does she know how to leave us begging for more!?! This is definitely the best yet, & I can't wait for the next journey!

I kneeled down for a better look. Whatever it was, it was clearly alive, and it shirked away, obviously frightened out of its wits. Could it be one of those pets humans liked to keep around? I transformed back to my human state so the poor little thing wouldn’t have a heart attack. “Here,” I whispered gently. “I’m not going to hurt you. Come on out.” 
“Demon?” a little voice whispered. It was clearly something supernatural. 

“Yep, you?” 


Troll? I’d never met a timid one before. “What are you doing here?” 

“I sorta live here.” 

“Can you come out?” 

The troll scurried from behind the vent, crawled out of the fireplace, and stood up beside the couch. It couldn’t have been more than eight inches tall. I’d never seen one so small before. It was clearly female, with a pink bow attached to her unkempt blond Afro. She was rather grubby, I guessed from her journey through the fireplace. She wore little green dungarees bedazzled with pink rhinestones. And she had the most enormous green eyes that seemed to glow. “What’s your name?” 

“I don’t have one.” Now that she wasn’t whispering, her voice sounded like a bee trying to speak human. “None of the underground trolls do,” she continued. “I guess we’re not important enough.” She lowered her eyelash-devoid eyelids, her lips trembling. 

I touched her hand gently with my finger. “What would you like to be called, if you could choose your own name?” 


“Yes, anything at all.” 

“Humm. That’s hard. It’s hard to commit to a name. What’s yours?” 


“Huh? That’s kind of old-fashioned. Where did that come from?” 

Old-fashioned? That troll cheekiness didn’t take long to surface. “Cordelia is a family name; I’m named after my grandmamma. I like it, and wouldn’t want to be called anything else.” 

“None of my family have ever had names,” she said, her lower lip trembling again. “Each subterranean troll family has a number, assigned by the Don. Then each family member gets given a letter. I am 4695h.” 

“That doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Tell you what. Pick a name you want me to call you, and if you don’t like it, you can change it as many times as you want until you find one that’s ‘you.’” 

“Humm.” She looked confused. “I can’t think of any nice names. Can you pick one for me?” 

“Sure. How about…” I tried to think of a simple one, since she was unfamiliar with names. “Lucy?” 

She nodded slowly. “I can… maybe… do that… Lucy.” 

“Well, Lucy. What are you doing here?” 

“Like I said, I live here. When I don’t live at home, that is. Do you want to see the room I sleep in when the demons are not around? It’s the same one that Dorian uses.” 

“Sure, in a moment. Which demons are you talking about?” 

“Dorian and his soap buddies mostly. And his son, Luke. I like Luke. He’s kinda hot.” 

“When was the last time they were here?” 

“Dorian was here a couple of hours ago.” She started fidgeting, lowering her eyelids and shifting from leg to leg. 

“Do you know where he went?” 

She shook her head. Then she pursed her lips. 

“What is it?” 

She stared at her feet. 


She smiled. “I like that.” 

“Focus, Lucy. Tell me everything. What’s with the odd expression?” 

“Well,” she whispered, her voice so low that I had to bend down to hear her, “something bad happened.” 


She raised her hands. “I don’t know.” 

“Come on, Lucy! How do you know something bad happened, then?” 

She suddenly crawled under the couch like a bug, and just as I was about to grab her tiny ankles and haul her out, she slithered back toward me—dragging something heavy. 

I couldn’t get a good look at it. “What is that?” 

“It’s Dorian’s arm,” she puffed, as I grabbed it, pulling it out—a bloody, shredded demon limb.

The Portal Chronicles Soundtrack Single!
About a year ago, when Imogen Rose, author of the cult bestselling series, the Portal Chronicles, was surfing YouTube she stumbled upon a song, “If We Fall” by SHE SAID SAVE ME, and instantly fell in love with both the lyrics and the male vocal. She put the song on her writing playlist and looked up the Toronto-based band on Facebook… and liked their page. A while later, Imogen received a PM from Joe Vercillo, saying that if her books were ever adapted for film or TV she should feel free to use his music. She had no idea who he was, but looked him up. Imagine her fan girl sqee moment when she discovered that he was the lead vocalist for SHE SAID SAVE ME! Imogen and Joe have been Facebook friends ever since.

The Portal Chronicles starts off with a serendipitous meeting in a London pub, which propels the lives of the characters into a time warp of what-ifs. During the prologue, which is the key to the story, Rupert is humming a song in that London pub where Olivia and he seal their fate. Imogen Rose always wondered what he was singing. Until late one night, when she closed her eyes and “heard” it. Imogen wrote the lyrics and SHE SAID SAVE ME put it to music.

What better day than Valentine’s Day to release this song that defines the romance that is PORTAL?
