Major Sullyan of the High King's forces is sent to oppose them. But a dark and treacherous force is moving through the realms and both Taran and Sullyan will feel its power.

About the Author:

Cas Peace was born in Hampshire UK, in 1957, and has lived there most of her life. Her first career was as a horse-riding instructor, and horses remain very close to her heart. She then spent 13 years working for the British Civil Service before leaving the UK to live in Italy for three years, 1991-1994. She speaks passable but by no means perfect Italian, and loves to return to Italy whenever she can. Her other great loves are anything to do with animals, especially dogs and horses,(she supports many animal charities) and also singing. Cas loves folk songs and along with her husband, who plays guitar, has performed in many a Southern England folk club. Sometimes they even asked her back! She writes folk songs to accompany her fantasy novels, and offers them as free downloads from her website, www.caspeace.com.

Review:

KING'S ENVOY  Awarded the HarperCollins Authonomy GOLD STAR in 2008! "Cas Peace's Artesans of Albia trilogy immediately sweeps you away into a world so deftly written that you see, feel, touch, and even smell each twist and turn. These nesting novels are evocative, hauntingly real. Smart. Powerful. Compelling. The trilogy teems with finely drawn characters, heroes and villains; with stories so organic and yet iconic you know you've found another home--in Albia." Janet Morris: author of The Sacred Band of Stepsons; the Dreamdancer series; I, the Sun; Outpassage.

 
"Cas Peace weaves her story with the skill of the most accomplished Artesan. If imagination were an element, she'd be a Master-elite."
Steven D Jackson: author of Shifter.
 

"A sequel that more than justifies this author's reputation. Peace's prose pulls you along at a pace that wants you to keep turning the page. No scene is wasted, there is no action without cause. I await its successor with barely restrained patience."
