Emissary by Thomas Locke

When you open the pages of Emissary by Thomas Locke, you enter a world quite different from our own. Magic is practised, but only in certain places and ways. There are legends and myths of what happened thousands of years ago. And a dark, evil force is slowly threatening the peace this world has known for the last thousand years.

And the one person who may have the answer to it all is an unlikely hero named Hyam. As a child, Hyam studied in the Long Hall with the magicians who know and practice magic. His gift was to be able to learn languages with an astounding speed. Yet, he was dismissed from the hall and only returned when his mother begged him too on her death bed. Hyam soon discovers he has powers beyond the mastery of language and understand the the fate and future of this world rests in his hands. Along the way, he teams up with Trace, an older magician who leaves his post as Master of a Long Hall to assist Hyam. He also frees a woman named Joelle and their friendship quickly grows. But on the horizon, destruction is coming with the arrival of “The Crimson One” who is seeking to destroy Hyam and take over the kingdom. Hyam knows he must fight him and it could cost him everything.

This is seriously one of the best books I have read in a long time. I swept up in this world and the characters. It was a little bit of Lord of the Rings, but where the majority of the characters can do magic. I am really disappointed to see that I have to wait until 2016 for the next book in the series. I can't wait to explore this world and the characters more.

Set the Stars Alight by Amanda Dykes

In an aged brick cottage in London, the magic of the past comes alive each night for the family of a humble watchmaker. In her father's fireside stories, Lucy Claremont's fascination with the high seas begins, leading her to devote her life's work to discovering the whereabouts of a legendary lost ship. But when tragedy strikes, it's childhood friend Dashel and his knowledge of the stars that may help her solve the puzzle. Two hundred years earlier, three young lives are altered forever when a shepherd rescues the privileged son of a powerful admiral. As the children grow, war leads to unthinkable heartbreak, deep love, and a story of betrayal, sacrifice, and redemption that fades into obscurity as centuries pass.

This is the sophomore release from Amanda Dykes and

Grandpa and Grandma Visit

My parents were out for a visit last week. Since Joash had school and the weather was a bit cool and rainy, we didn't do much. But they had a lot of fun playing with their grand kids and I got a few extra things done around the house too. We think these boys look a lot a like. Thanks for coming for a visit Grandpa and Grandma. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
