Summary: 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.


Emissary was a fun read. Thomas Locke did a great job writing it. I was held captive the whole time. Not stopping until I had finished it. The characters are realistic, and the plot line exciting. In Emissary you get to explore a new land, culture, and history. Taken on a journey were there is magic, friendship, a forbidden past, and danger. 
  You meet Hyam, a newly turned adult of 21. He has lived his life as a farmer until his parents die, only to find out they were not his biological parents. He then begins to search for truth, and to fight the enemy that is lurking in the shadows. 
Joelle is a girl that has been alone ever since her parents died. Coming close to death, she recovers, but is exiled to one of the Long Halls, where she secretly teaches herself and prepares to one day escape. But when terrifying dreams start trotting her sleep, she may find that her dreamed escape may be full of more adventure than she thought.
Along with other characters like Brynn, Trace, Meda, Adler and more. You'll have quite the adventure.
A great book if you love fantasy fiction, adventure, and excitement.

I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars
