Thomas Locke in his new book, “Merchant of Alyss book coverMerchant of Alyss” Book Two in the Legends of the Realm series published by Revell gives us another adventure with Hyam.

From the Back Cover:   Beneath the hills of a primeval city, a vanquished enemy is gathering power. As this new threat arises, can Hyam summon his true heritage and overcome the forces of evil?

When Hyam reluctantly returned to the Long Hall, he never imagined how his life would change. Latent powers were honed, chance encounters brought new wisdom, and even love found a way into his heart. With his wife, Joelle, he now makes a home in Falmouth Port.

Hyam is slowly recovering from his battles when a mysterious shipment of Milantian scrolls arrives. Soon he is haunted by dreams of mythic beasts and coming conflicts. When Joelle falls under a sorcerer’s spell, he must venture through the desolate lands to save her–and his community.

One particular scroll seems to hold the promise of new powers, but it also carries a hidden warning about an unfathomable threat. As Hyam sets out on another journey, he is keenly aware that he must rely on all his abilities–and his forbidden past–to succeed. His quest could bring deliverance . . . or devastation.

At the conclusion of “The Emissary”, Book One in this series, Hyam had lost his powers and the enemy was destroyed. Hyam has a new enemy, one that has put Hyam’s wife under a spell. To defeat him Hyman must go on a new journey, a journey that will tax him to the limit. This is an extremely exciting book with complex twists and turns that you probably will not see coming. This book will keep you 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.  It is clear that the final battle still has to be fought and I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
