The Black King:
Book Seven of The Fey
Kristine Kathryn Rusch
Thanks on this book go to Anne Lesley Groell for her tremendous work on this project; Paul Higginbotham, and Jerry & Kathy Oltion for their perceptive comments; my husband, Dean Wesley Smith, for loving the world of the Fey sometimes more than I do; and to all the readers who’ve been writing me letters and telling what they enjoy about this world, and why.
For my sister, Peg Hammer, who showed me that women can be strong, courageous, and feminine all at the same time.
