Emissary (Legends of the Realm #1)

Emissary by Thomas Locke is a beautiful fantasy novel - and the first in a (hopefully long, long) series.

Hyam of the Three Valleys is a likable young man who will make a great farmer someday. His plot of land in the forest is more than enough to feel him and his mom with left over to sell. But as his mother is on her death bed, she begs him to return to the Long Hall where he studied for five years as a boy.

Hyam's mastery of language was go great that it made people at the Long Hall suspicious. Humans usually spend a lifetime mastering the languages of the other creatures (Ashanta and Elves) and none can read more than a few words of Milantian. But Hyam mastered them all before he left the hated magic school.

Now, while delivering his mother message, the Mistress of the Long Hall gives him a startling revelation that will send Hyam on a path to his destiny.

Locke has created a novel that epitomizes great fantasy. It is rich in description and world with a hero's journey, a strong allies, and an evil foe. Fans of the genre or fans of great adventures will love this book!
