"Cas Peace's Artesans of Albia trilogy immediately sweeps you away: thedrama starts with King's Envoy, continues unabated in King's Champion, andclimaxes in King's Artesan, yet each volume is complete, satisfying. TheArtesans 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 finelydrawn characters, heroes and villains, and societies worth knowing; withstories so organic and yet iconic you know you've found another home--in Albia." ~Janet Morris: author of The SacredBand of Stepsons; the Dreamdancerseries; I, the Sun; Outpassage.
