Emissary is the initial release from author Thomas Locke. If you enjoy reading The Hobbit or other fantasy fiction, you will definitely enjoy reading this work. It has all the elements that make for great fiction.
The readers are introduced to Hyam the central figure in the story on the first page and from there they join him on his journey of discovery. During the story he must deal with his past and the affect his past will have on his future. We discover a race thought to have been long dead. We find that the way forward is often to visit the ancient past.
Without giving the plot away, readers will enjoy traveling along this journey with Hyam. The characters that are introduced are believable and engaging. The action is enough to keep the reader engaged without being too intense for the young reader. The romance is well done and definitely tasteful for all ages.
If you are looking for a last minute gift book for readers of any age, then Emissary is a rare find. Young and old will find the story engaging and hard to put down. It’s the perfect book for the holiday travel season or to start off your 2015 reading plan. I highly recommend Thomas Locke’s initial offering and look forward to reading the next volume as soon as it is released. I think you will too!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
