    2. What's it about?Taran Elijah's quest for knowledge uncovers a plot that threatens the world. In Albia, the fourth realm, the precious Artesan gift is dying. Although born to the craft, Taran is struggling to achieve his potential. Against his friends' advice, he embarks on a foolhardy plan to acquire the teaching he craves. Alone, he crosses into Andaryon, the fifth realm, but instead of finding a mentor, he stumbles upon a treacherous plot. In the wake of Taran's actions, Albia suffers a series [...]

    3. Cas Peace's King's Envoy weaves a magical tale that's a supremely masterful fantasy. Taran Elijah will do anything for knowledge and to rise above his Journeyman rank. When he crosses into the fifth realm, his quest goes terribly wrong. He flees to his own realm, but he returns with a powerful magical object. Now he, his apprentice, and a healer must journey to the Manor to speak with Major Sullyan. The fifth realm is attacking Albia, but the complexities of politics and war might be too much. T [...]

    4. This book, the first in a series, is the fiction debut of Cas Peace but you wouldn't know that - the writing and descriptive ability of Ms. Peace are those of an accomplished author. The story is set in a land of 5 realms, all different and all seperate but the main setting here are the 4th and 5th realms of Albia and Andaryon. At the start we meet Journeyman Artesan Taran Elijah. In an effort to increase his knowledge and further his Artesan abilities he crosses over from Albia to Andaryon but [...]

    5. My two favorite aspects of an enjoyable novel is that it has mystery and action -- King's Envoy has both. Splendidly written in a wonderful voice, King's Envoy drew me in immediately. Ms. Peace's imagination alone gets 5 stars. The world she creates is unique and intriguing. She has a wonderful talent for bringing to life scenes with such vividness that I felt as if I were truly walking in the shoes of Taran Elijah, an Artesan who lives in Albia, the fourth realm. Born into the craft, he struggl [...]

    6. I was never a fan of fantasy until I read this book. From the beginning Cas Peace's fabulous characters became my friends and I couldn't put the book down as they went through terrifying adventures.Sullyan is, of course, the woman all women want to be, or know they are deep inside. Brave, strong and capable of coping with anything while also being beautiful and desirable. And Taran, who is faced with trying to become really good at his Artesan skills, leads us through his journey to finding a ma [...]

    7. A great start of a fantasy series which is in part predictable but that does not matter when you follow loveable characters full of emotions. An adventure in a world with magic. A good mix of action, dialogue and inner thoughts.I look forward to read the next book after the cliffhanger ending of book one.What shall I say. Are you looking for a fantasy series which is compelling, powerful, fresh and fragile and nevertheless easy to read then you get both my thumbs up for King's Envoy by Cas Peace [...]

    8. This is the first novel in the Artesans of Albia fantasy series, a major new series for readers aged 15 and over.The discovery of a mysterious and terrible weapon threatens the existence of every Artesan in every realm. Who could have created such a dreadful thing, and why? Taran Elijah has stumbled upon a dark and treacherous force moving through the realms, and has no choice but to turn to Major Sullyan of the High King’s forces for help. The Artesan craft, the lives of their friends, even t [...]

    9. Warning: This is a gateway book. You may become hooked.Over the past couple of years I have read this whole, nine-book series and reviewed several of the novels so I come back to the first book with a new perspective. Re-reading it, I was even more impressed at how well it introduces the total work.Albia, as you would expect in the Epic Fantasy genre, is a carefully thought out and intricately detailed setting. The land, society, politics and magical nature of the several realms involved are tru [...]

    10. Taran Elijah and his apprentice, Cal, are Artesans. Unfortunately, Artesans - with their powerful ability to travel between realms, use their psyche for metaphysical strength/healing, and manipulate the four elements - aren't accepted in Albia, the fourth realm, where Taran, Cal, and Cal's lover, Rienne, live. There, Artesans are seen as little more than witches. In fact, if not for Rienne's status as a popular healer and Taran's close relationship with the innkeeper, Taran and Cal would probabl [...]

    11. Beautiful typography and cover art complete this engaging fantasy that draws the reader into a well-fleshed-out other-worldly realm. Or I should say "realms," as there are five. The book begins innocently enough, with Taran, a young, inexperienced artesan trying to learn his craft, desperate to reach the next level in his training, and willing to do almost anything to achieve his goal. Unfortunately, his efforts nearly kill him and don't do his friends much good, either. He enters another realm [...]

    12. Taran Elijah is an Artesan and like most Artesans, he has a thirst for knowledge and a drive to develop his abilities. His father has passed away and the Artesan gift in Albia is dying. This leads him to crossing the realms to Andaryon. Instead of finding a mentor, he stumbles upon a treacherous plot. In the wake of Taran’s foolhardy actions, Albia suffers vicious raids from Andaryon “demons”.Major Sullyan of the High King’s forces is sent to oppose them and instead finds that there’s [...]

    13. Although the story line and abilities of the characters are interesting, I had a difficult time getting into this book. The fantasy world that exists within the pages of this book includes people who have varying degrees of power. The main character has a desire to gain more power and understanding of his abilities and goes to a different realm in search of someone who can teach him. He comes upon some trouble and ends up killing a man of some import as well as escaping with a powerful and dange [...]

    14. King's Envoy has a striking cover and well-architectured (yes, that's now a word) blurb. So with high hopes, I took some tentative steps in to "King's Envoy"I'm not a reviewer of spoilers and plot-repetition so suffice it to say the plot is clear and well-structured, and the action moves at a pace that quite simply made me want to keep on turning the pages until the book was done. It's been a long time since a novel made me pull a late-night stint to get it finished however I quite simply did no [...]

    15. I remember when King's Envoy by Cas Peace was originally released. The cover etched into my mind. Maybe it was the colors used, which are very pleasing, or the beast, Tangwyr (hopefully I got that right). The cover captured a great early scene from the book. I was delighted that the writing was even better than the cover it was bound in. It is written in a clean, concise style that's easy to follow. Cas Peace does a great job building characters (especially Taran) and makes it easy for you to st [...]

    16. This one took a little while for me to get into. It takes place in a complex, multidimensional fantasy world and the reader is plunged into it without any background. Normally I like not too much back story, but I think a little here could have eased me into the world better. It was well into chapter 3 at least before I even understood anything that was happening or who anyone was. Once I started to get a handle on the characters, the actual story was interesting. Even so, there is a lot more to [...]

    17. Readers will love this fantasy world carefully crafted by Cas Pearce. The difference between the "fourth realm" and the "fifth realm" is both intriguing and disturbing-the reader will get to visit both. Taran, the main character, acts as the reader's guide. He is slightly reckless, caring, and strong-willed. He is mostly a likable character; he is flawed, but his flaws add to the story. The reader will get to know Taran very well during the novel to the point of guessing his next decision/action [...]

    18. Taran Elijah is possessed of ‘the Artesan’s craft’ but has not yet reached his full potential. When treachery and danger threaten he sets off into the fifth realm to defend his homeland. The future of Albia lies in his hands but will he be strong enough to vanquish the evil forces?King’s Envoy is a fantasy, which is not my usual choice of genre, but the author approaches it with such confidence that I was soon sucked into this other realm and found myself really enjoying it.The character [...]

    19. King's Envoy is an excellent start to a new series. A cast of interesting village characters eventually lead to a more intriguing heroine, the apparent heart of the series. I look forward to seeing how the characters evolve and interact in later books.I'll admit to a bit of uncertainty as to whether Artesan student Taran Elijah, our initial guide, or Major Sullyan, the charismatic leader whom he eventually meets, was the main focus of the book, but both were worth getting to know and I'm sure it [...]

    20. King's Envoy is the wonderful opening of what is sure to be a great series. Taran Elijah, the main character, was easy for me to relate to. He's not the confident hero. He's very human and has many misgivings, but he wants to expand his knowledge. This has been hard for him as he's been gifted with Artesan talent and he lives in Albia, a Realm where his abilities are reviled. Many other wonderful characters come into the story, and it's easy to feel at home with them too, for different reasons. [...]

    21. King's Envoy is the first of the Artesans of Albia series. There are many unique aspects explored in this book and each of them very well thought out, plotted and explained, especially in relation to the five realms and each of the races which live within them. Also explored in fine detail are the 'magical' abilities (called metaforce) which the Artesans work on improving through different stages and levels. There are a host of well developed characters, all of who have their strengths and fault [...]

    22. Taran craves the knowledge to advance his magic, but that knowledge isn't to be found in his realm. He will have to risk a foolhardy crossing into another realm to find a teacher. But that crossing only shows his ignorance and reveals a sinister plot to destroy his entire realm. Taran flees his hometown and soon discovers that the very teachers he craved are mere miles from his home. Soon, he's learning more than he ever thought possible. But with his new associations come new dangers, dangers f [...]

    23. An enchanting world, designed by a talented woman who has created kingdoms of engaging characters who must use their lives fighting formidable evil. Yet, these people have lives of their own to live and kingdoms to sacrifice themselves for, and children to birth and raise, love to find and hold, and dear friends to bury when their time has come.After spending time in Albia with the artesans, it is not easy to forget Taran, Bull, and Sully, and their deep friendship and love for each other. Cas P [...]

    24. A really gripping read and great start to the trilogy.The characters are complex and interesting. Sullyan is a superb lead character and, Robin is an excellent “leading man” whose character is more complex than merely that of the “love interest”. Bull is also very credible as the old soldier/sergeant major with the gruff exterior and the heart of gold. The 'black' characters are also more than just 'evil'. A number of plots and sub-plot twists and you are left waiting for book 2. An exce [...]

    25. This was my first paranormal fantasy read by Cas Peace. This is book one in a three book series. This story has a cool plot. I liked this heart pounding adventure. I was pulled into other realms with Teran, Major Sullyan, Robin and Bull. It seems people want more power.I only wish they would have put the glossary in the front of the book instead of the back.I am wishing I had some magical powers. Very fun read that leaves you wanting more. I even think my daughter would enjoy this read. This is [...]

    26. This is one of the best fantasy books I've ever read. The balance between background story and action is just perfect. Cas Peace won't make you read pages and pages of world-building details. Instead, the setting is laid out nicely as the plot progresses. Another thing I thought fabulous, was how well developed the villains are; not caricatured or one-dimensional. I'm very glad I found this author. I received this book as a courtesy for an honest review and all opinions are my own.

    27. Discovering a new author is amazing, especially when you have so much to catch up on! This was by first book by Cas Peace and it was a great place to start. I'm not sure if it would be appropriate to call this Heroic Fantasy, but it certainly has those elements woven through the narrative and embodied in Taran Elijah as he pursues his quest. Avery enjoyable read, I could thinking of giving it less than 5 stars.

    28. Fabulous fantasy.The story and characters sparkled from the first page. Plenty of mystery, drawing the reader into the tale. Great world building with the five realms and look forward to seeing some of these other regions revealed in future books. Engaging characters with interesting interactions. Ended with suspense – just as well there’s more! Fantasy lovers will enjoy this series.

    29. Artisans of Albia, a first novel by British author Cas peace, is an exciting addition to the world of fantasy. An epic saga of ambition, conquest, battle and romance, it takes the reader on a long and bumpy journey into lands much different to our own, yet strikingly familiar. It will surely one day make a blockbuster movie. One of a series, I eagerly await the next installment.

    30. I have not really been reading books like this. I am more of a romance reader. This book is wonderfully written. If you are looking for a new author please check Cas out. You will not be disappointed. I really enjoyed this book for something different.
