This is the lovely Karina (but don’t call her lovely, she won’t like it), the Lioness of the title. I actually found this image over a year ago, while I was still doing revisions. I liked it so much, I changed some book details to make it fit! So just between you, me and the other blog readers, Karina’s eyes used to be a darker blue, and her cloak used to be gray. But the expression–I knew that was pure Karina.
Stay tuned for a release date, coming soon!
