Emissary is a well written fantasy book. The story shows Hyam was born with a special gift...the ability to conquer languages, even the languages that have been dead for centuries. He now has to keep his gift and his identity a secret due to suspicion being placed on him a a prodigy. His mother asks him to go back to Long Hall, where he was taught, before settling down. To do this he must face many dangers.
I did like the development of Hyam, however his antagonist seemed to be a bit predictable as did the ending. I did enjoy this book, though, as I enjoy fantasy books. This would be a nice quick read for anyone else that enjoys this genre of writing.
I was given this book by Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
