I like these! Although the second one looks like it's a set, it doesn't seem to go with the building and looks a bit like she's just been slid into place with the roses and the frame! Lovely colours though.

That's also my Here Be Dragons cover. I can't find a hi-res image anywhere so here's a photo.

(Sorry for squintness, my phone always does that for some reason.)

Thanks, I knew I'd seen it somewhere else before.

Oh, it's a UK cover too. Didn't really look at those.
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!

The second one is the original illuminated image.

Interesting, I don't think it comes across that well on screen but it is lovely.

We've seen several versions of the cover on the left. The one on the right, same jacket, different photo shoot?

It could be the same guy, going by the eyebrows. He looks a lot less like a vampire in the right-hand cover though.
