The epic adventure, begun by author Thomas Locke with The Emissary, continues. But for Hyam . . . this time, it’s personal.
He’s been having trouble sleeping, his dreams troubled by a great dragon who is desperate to communicate with him. Or is it a dream? Before he can discover the meaning, he and his companions are forced once again into daring and doing the impossible. Along the way, they will each face their personal demons as they grow together from a group of individuals to a mighty army.
The Merchant Of Alyss follows the same formula that garnered praise for Thomas Locke in the first installment of The Legends Of The Realm. The reader will be swept away on a literary journey fraught with peril, filled with challenges, and tinged by sorrow. New friends will be made, new enemies will be met, and new obstacles will be overcome. And yet through it all, there are the never-ending, ever-enduring themes of loyalty, courage, honor . . . and love.
To reveal more in this review would be to spoil the adventure. If you’ve never read The Emissary, that might be a good place to start. While The Merchant Of Alyss can be read as a stand-alone book, there are enough allusions to the first book to make this somewhat tedious.
