Merchant of Alyss is a fantasy book set in Falmouth. Hyam and Joelle are happy to be together, even though Hyam has lost his magical abilities. This is a time of turmoil for him as he grieves for his skills yet he wonders if he would have been better off if he never had them. Finding the Milantian scroll gives him power at his touch, however the text foretells war. While trying to find answers to his dilemma he does not know that he is being sought by the merchant of Alyss.
I had not read the first book of the series, however it did not take me long to become lost in this book. The characters in the book feel so real. The main character keeps driving the story. I am now going to move backwards and read the first book, Embassy, as I want to find the complete story of what brought these characters to this point.
I was given this book by NetGalley and Revell in exchange for my honest review.
