Thomas Locke in his new book, “emissary book coverEmissary” Book One in the Legends of the Realm series published by Revell takes us into the life of Hyam.

From the Back Cover:   With his twenty-first birthday, Hyam begins a journey that will lead him to his destiny–or his doom.

Hyam has always shown a remarkable ability to master languages, even those left unspoken for a thousand years. But now the shadow of suspicion that was cast upon him as a child prodigy at Long Hall is lengthening, and he must keep his identity hidden–or face annihilation.

As Hyam’s mother slips toward death, she implores him to return to Long Hall before he settles down to farm his land. This journey born from duty becomes an impassioned quest for the truth. War is coming swiftly, and Hyam must rely upon his newfound powers and the friends he meets along the way in order to unravel the puzzling past and ensure that he–and the realm–will have a future.  

The journey is on. Any time there is a journey involved bells go off that this is going to be a good story. And in the hands of a master craftsman like Thomas Locke, A.K.A. Davis Bunn, we are in for a great story. The journey has been a part of literature since forever and Mr. Locke takes it and runs with it to new heights. Hyam has to take the journey because it was the last wish of his dying mother even though he really does not want to. Along the way he is going to meet new friends, all kinds of adventure and begin to find a way to save everything he knows. This book will keep turning pages while leaving chores unattended and it is so worth it.  Mr. Locke is an excellent writer and makes all his characters believable and you care deeply for them as he deftly unfolds the plot before us.  I am so glad that this is just the beginning of his new series and that there will be more stories soon.
