Blurb/Synopsis: No one knows the secrets he keeps.

No one knows of the worlds that exist right alongside ours.

Benton is human, but he walks the line between two worlds: the mundane and the supernatural; the commonplace and the extraordinary. As a rare Fire Elemental Warlock, he finds himself in trouble more often than he cares to admit. It doesn’t help that his sister is a Faery Queen of the Summer Seelie Court.

This is Benton’s story as he makes his way between the mortal world and a world where magic reigns. Do you dare follow? Do you dare see what lurks just beyond the edge of perception?

“This is yours.” She removed the same sword he’d been entranced with and held it out to him. It looked light enough for Jade to wield it without difficulty. Too light.

“A sword?”

“Not just any sword,” Jade’s eyes twinkled as it slowly lit up when her fingers touched the blade. “It’s an Empyreal blade. Only fire elementals can wield it, and that is only temporary unless you were born to use it.” She held it out to him and encouraged him to take it. “Come on, it won’t burn you.”

“It looks a bit…thin.”

Jade laughed and her smile made him feel foolish for underestimating the power of this slender blade. “It does. But it’s made of the strongest metal ever forged by magic. It will never break, bend or fail you. It is tied to our family by blood. Anyone may use it, but we must return it to the Pyren before each full moon, unless it’s true owner uses it, then he may keep it on his person wherever he goes, until he dies.”

Benton furrowed his brow as he took the blade into his hands. It was light, but felt substantial enough he could swing it about and not feel like it would fly out of his fingers. The grip was cool under his skin and he could feel its energy rumbling through it as it turned into an extension of his own fire power. It was so unexpected to feel it fuse to his aura, he dropped it from the shock it sent him when it latched on and stared at his hands, expecting to see his skin melting off.

It was intact, and not any warmer than before.

My Rant: History of Fire was captivating. I really enjoyed Alexia's Purdy writing style.  Her story flows smoothly and it was easy to follow. Her imagination is vivid, colorful and dark. Her characters are easy to understand and connect with even though there struggles are dark and emotional. I love Brenton's character , being human keeps him grounded but being able to move into the magic world makes this story seem to jump off the pages and entrap you. Brenton is definitely a force to be reckoned with and his character is so unique you begin be intrigued by his life and decisions to do the things he does. What I also enjoy about this book is that you are so connected you actually love and hate characters with such a passion. Especially when Brenton has to go after Unseelie in the human world. LOL the human world. You get the best of both world's which are full of adventure and action and the mystery. I love warlocks and fairies now and i completely enjoyed Alexia's work that I am interested in following this series. I am so glad Anna recommend this through her tour company,I had a blast reading History of Fire and I am placing this book on my 2014 favs list.

My Recommendation: 

I rated this book 5 out of 5 Purple Rant Hearts and I would Recommend this book to YA readers.
