The protagonist of the second volume, The King's Damosel (1976), is Lynette, a tomboy raised as a fighter but raped at thirteen and unwillingly wed to a brutal man; she even- tually becomes the king's messenger. The hero of late 19th-century London is on the cusp between the Renaissance Man and the Corporation—a transformation best exemplified by Thomas Alva Edison and his Menlo Park laboratories.
