A version of a book cover I did for the 2nd book in Jayden Wood's Sons of Mercia series, "Godric the Kingslayer".
"Godric is the bastard son of one of the greatest traitors in England's history, Eadric Streona. Outcast and orphaned at a young age, Godric finds protection in the arms of a Jomsviking named Thorkell the Tall. Godric trains among the Vikings and watches as his father's killer, Canute the Great, gains power beyond England and the Baltic Seas. Keeping his true identity a secret, Godric reenters the royal court and attempts to gain King Canute's trust. He serves his greatest enemy so that he may understand why his father died and avenge him to the fullest. But will King Canute's death be enough to fulfill him?"
