This is curious and thanks to an eagle-eyed commenter on my blog who noted the similarities between the two.

I definitely like THE WINTER SEA better. Funny how just a few small changes can alter a photo.

Misfit, this could also be the model on Helen Hollick's Forever Queen, but taken full length? http://www.amazon.com/Forever-Queen-Som ... 225&sr=8-1

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

I like The Forever Queen the best. :p
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!

I got a bit excited there seeing a new Helen Hollick title for me, but then discovered it's a retitled The Hollow Crown.
