Love the Arrow covers! I'm trying to get as many as I can in those rather than the Three Rivers ones :) .

Thanks for the link Boswell.

I think those are the covers that are available in the UK too. Interesting to see one of her books is called The Sun in Splendour.

The Arrow covers are much more attractive and interesting! I like the one that had the wolfhound on it, lovely creatures they are.

That sounds interesting, I want to read now.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
