Emissary by Thomas Locke ~ Review

Emissary (Legends of the Realm, #1)My Review:

On his 21st birthday, Hyam receives powers far beyond anything he could have imagined. Suddenly he finds himself involved in a rising war, as his powers are tested and his destiny is revealed.

The beginning drew me in, but as the story progressed I lost interest and got kind of lost. I really wanted to love this book, and I tried hard, but in the end I felt as if I didn't really have much of  a connection with the characters, and I felt more like I was seeing them from a distance rather than being right there beside them.

The world building was well done and from the first few chapters I was able to get a rudimentary grip on the society.

Overall, a new fantasy series about a young man searching for his place in the world, as he fights the evils rising about them. I know a lot of people who really liked this book, and I know that it will delight many fantasy lovers :)

  1. Hi Faye,

    I was hoping to send this via email but can't see your contact info on your blog, so I hope you don't mind me leaving this in the comments.

    I was wondering if you'd be willing to review my novella, an inspirational romance on Amazon called A Chance for Moonlight:


    I would be willing to provide a complimentary review copy in exchange for an honest review (or, if you have kindle unlimited you can download it directly for free). Let me know if you're interested! The book blurb is below:

    Spring brings change, especially in bustling Manhattan. Downtown, a cheerful pastry cook charms the reticent soldier next door. Uptown, a young heiress with a complicated past weighs a courtship with a handsome baseball player. In Midtown, a married couple learns the sparks that come with building a life together. One city and three couples bind this sweet novella together.

    Thanks so much! If you do decide to read it, I can't wait to hear what you think!
