Blood Song German cover

Blood Song in Hungarian is….

…’A Ver Enneke’. I know this thanks to the good folks at Fumax Kiado who are currently printing the Hungarian version with an excellent all new cover by artist Kira Santa. Very happy to see they chose one of my favourite scenes to illustrate. Also, many thanks to my Hungarian translator Kalman Matolcsy for all his hard work on this project.
