It kinda looks like the same girl.
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"

The columns look similar, with a slightly different position.

We have seen this pair before. Nice to see Wolf's Born of the Sun on Kindle. That was THE book that got me hooked on HF.

I'd been at histfic for a few years before I found Born of the Sun, I think in college, and I did love it (*). Parke Godwin's A Memory of Lions, though, is my bone-deep favorite. That's how I want to write.

* It took me until THIS YEAR to get a bead on how to pronounce Ceawlin's name, though. That drove me batty more than half my life!!

A Memory of Lions is very good.

We've seen them before, and the horse too, although wth happened to the guy's head in the Joan Wolf one? I haven't read it, is it because the male lead is described as blonde?

Been awhile, but I'm pretty sure the hero in Born of the Sun was blonde, being a Saxon and all.
