Cas Peace’s KING’S CHAMPION, the second book in the Artesans of Albia, is a must-read for fantasy fans.

With the help of her friends, Major Sullyan escapes the brutal torture from Lord Rykan’s hands. But trapped in Andaryon and slowly dying, she finds her purpose to help the Hierarch and become the King’s Champion in a battle against her foe. But to save two worlds, it might cost her more than she knows.

KING’S CHAMPION picks up the storyline right after KING’S ENVOY, which I read a year ago. Peac

King's Envoy is a great novel, and its first sequel King's Champion is better still. Picking up amid the tension and excitement, where book one left off, Cas Peace's world instantly ensnares the reader once more. Major Sullyan, an extremely important character from the first novel and my favorite one, now takes center stage. Justly wanting revenge on the malignant and vile Duke Rykan, she must prove herself to the sexist Andaryon military before the opportunity can be set before her. The truth o ...more

Sullyan takes centre stage.
Starts and ends with intensity. Interesting history about Sullyan is revealed, opening up new possibilities. Some great new characters are added to the cast. Another cliff-hanger ... bring on Book 3.

King’s Champion – Cas Peace

This is the second book in the Artesans of Albia trilogy and I must say is by no means lacking for action. The book starts off with a horse chase through the darkened woods in a brave attempt at a rescue.

I admit, I have yet to read book one in this trilogy, but it did not hinder my experience reading book two. I was drawn in immediately and connected with the characters with ease. The authors prose perfectly describes the scen

Having voraciously chewed through Peace's first book, [[ASIN:1936850133 King's Envoy: Artesans of Albia]], I realised with horror as I reached its conclusion I had made a horrible horrible mistake. I had binge-read, and I was left with the nauseating hangover of realisation that there was no book left, and plenty of story waiting to be told.

This book carries straight on from part 1 of the Artesans of Albia series, King's Envoy and as such you need to read King's Envoy first to really appreciate what is going on.

We start with the companions in a mad chase away from the dungeons where Major Sullyan has been held captive and during the healing process the Major needs it is found that she will be unable to cross the veils and return to her home realm of Albia.

She makes the decision to offer her help to The Heirarch, the ruler of the re

After devouring King's Envoy and ploughing into this one, I wasn't disappointed.

Cas Peace has a talent for keeping a reader hooked to the last death-defying minute.

Poor Sullyan was in such deep trouble at the beginning of the book and I had to wait till the end before I discovered how much this wonderful strong, brave, woman could handle!

And this is where I discovered that she is still in deep trouble!

And this is where I made my first mistake. I should have strung it out until I could get the ne

Great book. I love how you get to know every character even if you haven't read the first one yet. I can not wait for the third book to come out.

The King’s Champion had some sections that were amazing and wonderful to read. I really enjoyed the last 75 pages or so as the plot really picked up, but most of the book was drawn out a bit much for me. The plot overall was good and the characters continue to be enjoyable from the first book in the series, but I was not into this book as much as I had anticipated. I had a difficult time remembering that the characters are attempting to move forward despite trying circumstances because those cir ...more

Wow! I found this utterly gripping from start to finish. Warning, this is NOT a light read, but I am sure fantasy fans will 'enjoy' it hugely. The author must have a military background, or have done a wealth of research, as the fighting and battle planning carry such a feel of 'real' with them. I quickly felt an attachment to the characters, which made it a very tense read, for sure. When I have 'recovered' I intend to read the third in the series: The King's Artesan. And am looking forward to ...more

Beautifully written and sprinkled with just the right amount of magic, King's Champion is the perfect fantasy! I love tales with a strong leading character & Cas Peace does not disappoint. Betrayal, adventure & passion wrap neatly around each other to deliver a beautiful continuation of King's Envoy, Artesans of Albia.
If you enjoy being whisked away to the realm of fantasy, I strongly suggest this unique, special read! Hands down, one of the best fantasy series I have ever read!
