Lee, Sharon / Miller, Steve  
Liaden: Necessity's Child
Publisher's signed edition with signature page tipped in; signed by both authors. The kompani sees none as enemy, and yet few as friend, existing in many places, living quietly in the shadows, thriving off the bounty that others have no wit to secure, nor skill to defend. Their private history is unwritten; their recall rooted in dance and dream. Clan Korval is in many ways the opposite: wealthy in enemies, fortunate in friends, protecting itself with vigor, and teaching even its youngest children the art of war. When representatives of Clan Korval arrive on the planet Surebleak where the kompani has lived secret and aloof, it seems to the kompani that they are borne by the very winds of change, and their plans may bring catastrophe, changing the culture, and the kompani, forever. There, the lives of three people intersect: Kezzi, apprentice to the kompani's grandmother; Syl Vor, Clan Korval's youngest warrior; and Rys, a man without a world, or a past.
