About the Narrator
Born in the eighties, her formative years in the nineties, Rebecca’s taste in music and fashion never really had a chance. Fortunately, you can’t tell these things from her writing or voice over work. Her first novel, Trespasser, is as dark as her neon is bright, and you’d never guess from hearing her that she’s narrating science fiction in nothing but unicorn pants.
Currently residing in London, Rebecca is passionate about travel, and has a good- albeit sometimes dubious- ear for accents. She graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama with a degree in something or other, has a background in musical theatre, a past career in burlesque, and is a classically trained opera singer. Oh, and she likes greyhounds. And wine.

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 of vicious raids, and 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. Their craft, the lives of their friends, the very existence of their realm are under threat unless they expose and oppose the evil.


“Cas Peace’s Artesans of Albia trilogy immediately sweeps you away:  the drama starts with King’s Envoy, continues unabated in King’s Champion, and climaxes in King’s Artesan, yet each volume is complete, satisfying.  The Artesan series  propels you 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 and societies worth knowing; with stories so organic and yet iconic you know you’ve found another home—in Albia. So start reading now. I, for one, can’t wait to find out what will happen next.x

I chose to listen to this audiobook after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

King’s Envoy draws you in from the first page with Taran, an Albian artesan, who believes that there is no one on Albia who can mentor him. He crosses into Andaryon in another realm seeking to find knowledge. Taran fails to accomplish his quest but he believes that he has caused raids on Albia from Andaryon. Taran, along with his friends Cal and Rienne, embark on a journey to try to find a way to help in any way they can. 

They go to the Manor where the army is based and meet Major Sullyan, Bulldog, and Robin, and Taran learns that they are all artesans and are willing to teach him! But he must learn quickly because they are all in danger.

Cas Peace has created a whole new universe of her own and has done a fine job of making it easy for readers to join Taran in his journey. The descriptions are excellent and the characters in King’s Envoy are well developed and interesting. The narrator did a great job with enunciation and timing. 

King’s Envoy is the first in a series and will make you want to read the next book immediately!
