Many thanks to readers in Canada who reviewed Emissary. Here are excerpts from seven Canadian reviewers. Please click the title of each blog to read their full reviews.
“This is seriously one of the best books I have read in a long time. I swept up in this world and the characters.”
“From page one, I was captivated by Hyam and his story, as his status as orphan garnered my sympathy while the explosion of his powers onto the scene held me captive to the point I simply couldn’t put the book down.”
“There is all kinds of magic and wizardry in Thomas Locke’s story if that is something you have trouble with you may want to stay away but if you like a little historic sci-fi (can’t think of another good name for this genre) then dig in! You’re going to have trouble putting it down!”
“This is one series I can’t wait to get the rest of the books from as they come out. This first book was really well written and the plot was extremely captivating.”
“Emissary is mainstream fantasy fiction, in the classic reluctant hero’s journey style. It’s been called epic, but I wouldn’t go that far. It’s a fun read with plenty of action and struggle, enjoyable characters and a well-developed world and magic system, but epic fantasy has a weight to it. Emissary, for all the great danger Hyam faces, is a lighter read.”
“Emissary promises an epic journey and it fulfills. I was swept up in Hyam’s quest for his true heritage, that eventually leads him to a brewing battle of epic proportions between good v. evil.”
“It took me a while to understand what was happening in this novel but once I was immersed in the culture and world Locke created, I couldn’t put the book down.”
