Review: History of Fire (A Dark Faerie Tale #5) (A Dark Faerie Tale #5) by Alexia Purdy
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?
Can be read as a stand alone novel.

I received an ARC copy to give an honest review.
Like what it says in the blurb you can totally read this book as a stand alone but if you want back story on other characters or just the lay of the Faerie land than you should read the others.
This is all about Benton and we get to see what he does and who he is exactly. Benton rather stay in the human world than be in the faerie world. In a way I don't blame him, especially with the food that the faerie's eat. Burgers sound so much more delish along with a soda! Benton learns some new spells, he also meets someone that has the sight but he doesn't realize that someone else is looking for her as well. With all this he is still doing the job of helping his sister Shade clean up the mess that the Unseelies seemed to have made with the human world. Benton is a strong male character who you just have to like! But at the same time you want to smack him in the back of the head for ogling females lol. With a History of Fire you not only get Benton's story but his family's as well, Benton learns more about his family as he reads the grimores left for him to read.
Alexia has a way with drawing you into the world of magic and almost holding you hostage as you don't want to live it. I guess that could be the faerie magic woven within the story?
With the way the ending came I do want to see what more adventures will Benton go on. And what is going to happen with Anna Benton's sister?
