Full Disclosure: I received a free copy from the author for review

Sticking with just the story first:

I admit that when I first read the blurb for the book my initial thought was "seems a bit cliché, but could have promise". After reading the book my general summation is "is a bit cliché, but is definitely readable".

Especially for the first 3/4 of the book, getting past the various typos and things (of which there were a fair few), I thought the writing was well-done. (Ok, after the prologue beca
My Thoughts: ( I give this book 4 Stars )

Okay, so let me first start out and say I did not think this book would be this awesome of a read. I was not sure what to except when I started to read Chronicles of Fire. I was blown away by how much I really enjoyed this book. The story-line was exciting and the flow of the story was so perfect. I sometimes feel like a author can rush different parts of the book to hurry along the plot, but not this book. It was flawless and always keep me wondering wha
Well... where do I start. After reading the synopsis of this book I was pretty intrigued, I mean you don't read many books where the popular guy is the captain of the fencing team and not the football team. Also, the addition of some sci fi elements sounded cool, a kid who can control fire?! This sounded awesome!

After getting about 50 pages in I started to become wary of the story. There are a lot of grammatical errors. Now, I'm pretty biased when it comes to grammar, because I'm a total grammar
This was a very good YA fantasy book. Jake was just an ordinary guy in high school with a girlfriend until he discovers he has a gift, he's an elemental. The characters were well thought out, and I liked the fact that he had adults in his life to care for him including one parent. I'm getting sick and tired of kids who's parents died some horrible way and the world is against them, sort of thing so this was refreshing. I enjoyed reading it and will continue with the series.

Loved your book! I liked that that Ben and Jake were fencers - a sport often overlooked. I'm eager to read about their next adventure.
