EQUILIBRIUM (Portal Chronicles Book Two)

I am so pleased to announce that my new book is up on Amazon!! EQUILIBRIUM. It's book two of the Portal Chronicles (Book One):



Book Description

It's not every day you see a naked body slumped by the side of the road...



This ominous sight is just the beginning of a mystery that will span two dimensions
.


When California teen Arizona Darley and her siblings go missing, their mother, Dr. Olivia Darley, discovers that the time-travel portal she invented has been hijacked.

Is the hijacker responsible for the disappearance of her children? Have the children been transported to another dimension? If so, the police and FBI will never be able to find them, and Olivia must find a way to rescue her children on her own.

How will she do this without access to the portal?

EQUILIBRIUM is book two of the Portal Chronicles.

Advance copy reviews:

Love the story and it is great having the character grow so much more in the plot of the sequel....

If you loved Portal by Imogen Rose, the story of tomboy Arizona Stevens who hates her little sister and whose parents are divorced, waking up one day in the back of a van and into an alternative universe where she becomes Arizona Darely, a blond cheerleading who loves her little sister and whose parents love each other even more….you will love this book.

The story Equilibrium addresses some of the nagging questions the reader might have had from the first book, and dives more into the life of Arizona's mother, Olivia Stevens. The reader will learn more about Olivia's colleagues too, as well as their children and lives which have been altered dramatically by the 'portal'.

The reader will re-discover the passion Arizona and Kellan shared from the first book, falling in love with their union all over again. A healthy mix of science fiction and romance, this story is not cliche, nor sappy and it doesn't drown the reader in science fiction either.

I enjoyed it more than the first book!

A great read for those who love the Sookie Stackhouse Series and the passion of Twilight, fans of Portal will not be disappointed in this sequel entitled Equilibrium.
-Ami Blackwelder(Hot Gossip Hot Reviews)


Just finished Equilibrium!! AMAZING! I am ready for Quantum and everything else that comes after. You feel the emotions of each of the characters so much in this book, it was just simply amazing!

The story answered questions from Portal and opened some new questions as well, yet left you wanting more more more. The last page completely blew me away, my heart is still pounding!

Awesome Job Imogen!
-Angela Crisp-Borchardt

New Review on Amazon:

Did you read Portal? Then you are definitely going to want to read this and find out more about the complications of the Darley-Stevens
family, especially Teen Arizona Darley or is it Stevens? If you didn't read Portal you will want to read Equilibrium anyway. The book will have you turning the
pages as secret after secret is revealed. Young love and turmoil in an unbelievable situation. The ending will blow your mind.
Author Imogen Rose is bringing it on!

Thank you, GraceKrispy!

Here is another nice review from Amazon:

It has been a couple of months since I read Portal (the first of the series), so I wasn't sure how easily I'd pick up the story and remember the characters in Equilibrium. But as soon as I started I was immediately back in Arizona Darley's world. I really enjoyed Portal but I think Equilibrium is even better. It has a bit more of a fast-moving "thriller/crime" feel to it, and there is much more information on the time travel aspects of the story. I've not read many time travel books but enjoyed "classics" like "The Time Machine" and the Terminator series. This is a totally different type of story but the whole time travel concept gets you thinking. I liked the fact that many of the questions raised in Portal are answered in Equilibrium. But like Portal, the most enjoyable part of this book is that you feel fascinated by the characters and the plot, and can't wait to turn the next page to find out what happens next. And of course, Imogen Rose keeps you wanting more with a great ending.

Review by Vine Voice:

A sequel. Part two. Book two. Two little words that make me cringe. As a rule, I try to avoid series (although it seems that is all I'm reading these days, go figure). It's not that I have anything against them. I like the character development that can happen across multiple books. I like following story lines and threads through to the bitter end. I don't like BOOK TWO though. That usually means that, well, it's going to suck. What is it with "book two"? Do authors set out to make them bad or does it just happen that way?

I read the first book of this series and got to the end where I realized there will be a book two. I really wanted to cry. It meant that a story I liked would likely be slaughtered. But I powered through and I bought Equilibrium just the same. Man, am I glad that I did! Imogen Rose has done a fantastic job of continuing the story while introducing us to new elements. There wasn't a sucky story line in the bunch. Kudos to her! Well edited, well executed and just downright fun.

The thing that I think I like about these books is that they are not heavy. It's pretty light scifi time travel, which is right up my alley. There's a young adult element to it, but unlike other popular YA, I don't feel the need to have a friend hold down Arizona while I beat the living snot out of her. She's a likable character with very realistic teenage angst. It just happens that her mom built a time portal and she remembers her life from another dimension. Yup, pretty normal, alright!

Seriously though. This book is very well done. The author is definitely one to watch. Her writing style is perfect for this sub-genre of YA and I hope she sticks with it. Her writing was great in the first book and she doesn't disappoint in the second. I'm told the third book will be out in the Fall 2010. Let's hope! The ending left me on edge, ahhh!, cliffhangers!

I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could. It loses a half star because there's a few time where the... I'm not sure of the phrase for it, but who's "speaking" change. It goes from being narrated to first person (Arizona) a few times without really giving us a heads up as to what's going on. For instance, it went from telling us what Rupert was doing and a few paragraphs later it read "I laughed". Um, the narrator laughed? SO very minor and not something I would noticed usually. And yes, there was a ---- break to show a change of scene. It's my own personal niggle. I'm weird like that, folks!

Very highly recommended. A light read that will leave you smiling. Trust me, just buy it.

Dellaster ( a member here) is no longer doing SW conversions (he did the one for PORTAL for me), so I doubt that I will, unless I find someone else who can.
