How gorgeous is that inside Misfit, why didn't they choose that for the cover instead :rolleyes: Purchased off ABE for not a lot, 'The man who sank Titanic' by Sally Nilsson, and 'The Romanovs - the final chapter' by Robert K Massie :)

Just ordered To Defy a King by Elizabeth Chadwick.
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!

Yep you're right but I don't think that one was included in the special offer that the others were. It doesn't seem as popular for some reason.
