    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.
