A dramatic piece. Winter is a time for peace and celebration. It is always sad when people are away from home and fighting to save others. Judging by the cover, it must be a good book. Nicely done.

Amazing pic. Love the way the colors blend from the birds and forest to the mountain backdrop. Especially love that someone understands the concept that strong female characters in the fantasy genre DO NOY wear armor as a seduction technique...but as actual armor. All in all, a great piece.

When you do a book cover like this, do you read the whole book first, or just with the indications of the author?
