Don’t turn away from this one because it is published by Revell, a Christian Fiction publisher! Emissary is a fantastic fantasy well worth the read without any distracting insta-love or worse. It has every element a top fantasy needs to be a great read. The characters are very well developed and fleshed out, easy to connect with and root for. Locke handles each scene eloquently, giving a sense of forward flow even during dialogue. Just the right amount of information is provided just when it’s needed. This one is one to read if you even think you like fantasy. I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
