Amazon has started requiring you to be an Amazon Associate in order to 
use the API. The next release of Tellico will have a better info dialog 
for that error.

If you don't enter an API key in the data source config, Tellico will 
still do the search and show results. With the API key entered, Google 
returns additional information. But, the search should work fine without 
a key. The ISBN example you listed worked for me.
