[quote=""Susan""]Thanks for the heads up. I just purchased it. Now I have three Helen Hollick books awaiting me on my Kindle, but I think I might be hung up on the Outlander series for a while.[/quote]

You wouldn't be the first one with that problem. Those books ruled my life until I finished.

I shudder to think what I would have gone through if I hadn't discovered these after most of them were written.

This is the same book as Harold the King, correct?

Yes. It is my understanding there's been some editing down but it is basically the same story. I really didn't notice any difference between the two.

So far I only have The Forever Queen. I know the other book in that series got re-issued under a different name.
Is it just the two books, or are there more?
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 like the title of Harold the King better. In the series, it is only The Hollow Crown/ The Forever Queen, and Harold the King/ I Am the Chosen King, yes? I want to make sure I'm not forgetting anything else that went under a different title.
