Crow is a blacksmith apprentice without a master.
A chance meeting on the side of the road leads Crow to Jek, the royal blacksmith, and everything changes. For the first time in a long time, Crow has a place to belong, and a friend in the form of Crown Prince Alexander. The two make an unlikely pair, a man destined for the throne and a slim youth happy to work with fire.
There are secrets that Crow is hiding though, including a shadowed past that the world has forgotten, an affinity for the mysterious sword fighting style from the East, and the fact that while Crow might look like a boy, he is a woman, hiding her gender in an unkind world.
The Crow and the King is a tale of adventure and friendship, of learning to reconcile with the shadows of the past, and of finding love in the most unexpected of places.
