    Default King Finnbheara?

    in Beyond the Highland Mist it mentioned a king. I remembered reading about him and didnt know if he was the Unseelie king (i was assuming no) or just another powerful seelie hanging out in fae. Am i overthinking a character of little importance?

    I don't know who King Finnbheara is. I suppose even though the Seelie is a matriarchical court, there is still a king--but a king who has no real power to do anything that the queen does. Yours is the first post I've come across this. If it's the UK, I can imagine it--only because by the 5th book in the Fever series, the UK has parts of himself split and visiting characters of interest. He keeps tabs on those who will be useful to him in the future. That's my POV. I'm sure there are a million others with variations to this <grinning>

    I was reading that book too a couple of times over and noticed that he wasn't mentioned in any of the other Highlander books. I asked about it and a couple of the other Maniacs said that he was just a minor character that ended up disappearing the way that some do. Don't know if that helps or not

    I believe if I remember correctly he was just her consort and was called "king" but no he is not THE king (UK) I know I've seen it mentioned a few times and that is what we always came up with.

    The first question i have for you is- Are we going to see any more of the Seelie King from Beyond The Highland Mist?
