Product Description

Hyam is a likeable lad who will make a fine farmer someday. But he carries a burden few can fathom. As his mother slips toward death, she implores him to return to Long Hall, where he spent five years as an apprentice. It was there that Hyam's extraordinary capacity for mastering languages came to light--and soon cast him into the shadows of suspicion. How could any human learn the forbidden tongues with such ease? When Hyam dares to seek out the Mistress of the Sorceries, her revelation tears his world asunder.

He has no choice but to set out on the foreboding path--which beckons him to either his destiny or his doom. An encounter with an enchanting stranger reminds him that he is part hero and part captive. As Hyam struggles to interpret the omens and symbols, he is swept up by a great current of possibilities--and dangers.

With lyrical prose that unveils a richly imaginative world, Thomas Locke takes readers on a journey into the Realm. There he invites them to awaken their sense of wonder. This cracking adventure moves like a contemporary thriller but harkens back to the enduring genre of classic fantasy.

    I found this series to be excruciatingly boring and ridiculous. The writing is bad. The author apparently has an intense aversion to commas. I've read other Davis Bunn books and don't recall disliking them so much.

    I cannot say that the books are biblically inaccurate, but only because they're not biblical at all--there is nothing in them related to the Christian walk--so I can only give my opinion regarding the story. I found myself simply skipping large sections at a time in both books just to finish. I definitely don't recommend this series.

    Great story, but "Christian"...?

    I love the story. It is a great story of self-discovery, and, in the end, self-sacrifice for the good of others.

    Yet there is no reference to Jesus, either literally or allegorically. The book is full of what the Bible describes as witchcraft, and may even (unintentionally) encourage people to seek out the power of witchcraft. The source of Hyam's power has more in common with "the force" in Star Wars than it does with the Cross. [I AM a Star Wars follower, but recognize "the Force" is not the Holy Spirit, but something from Hinduism.] Because of this, I wonder why CBD offers it, and why a Christian writing guild would give it high praise....?

    BUT the morals are CLEAN, and there are certainly Christian values reflected. For those who enjoy fantasy, this is a great book. If you are looking for something that clearly is pointing the reader to Jesus, this is not the book (or series, for that matter).

    I would caution allowing your teenagers to read these books unless they are very firmly rooted and grounded in their faith and solidly devoted to Jesus, lest they perhaps drift away toward New Age thinking.

    An incredible good versus evil fantasy novel!

    Joelle and Hyam are misfits. They dont know where they fit in or who their ancestors are. As such they are very confused and struggling to figure out where they belong and what they should be doing with their lives. They are very well written and their confusion is almost palpable. As bits and pieces are revealed more questions arise with the new information.

    I was drawn into the story from very early on. I wanted to find out what Hyams destiny was as well as his heritage. I couldnt put the book down until the very end.

    I admit that I usually dont care for magic or wizardry in my books. This book is very clearly a story of good versus evil and that is the only way that these aspects are included. This became very evident very early on in the story and I needed to see how it turned out.
