Excerpt
Excerpt #1
“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 Review: 



This story is a spin-off The Dark Faerie Tales and can be read without ever reading the other books.  This book is about Benton and is place in the faerie world.  His sister Shade is now queen and he is struggling to fit in, in either the human or faerie world.  See Benton isn't half human-half faerie like his sister he is full blooded human and is a fire warlock (totally cool!).

I absolutely loved this story of Benton, he is such a great character and it was awesome learning more about him and how he feels about things.  Alexia is a great author and does well telling the characters stories.  I am a huge fan of The Dark Faerie Tales and I can see that this series is going to be just as amazing!!
