This eBook cover needs to look good as a thumbnail, in full colour and in B&W display as well. Example imagery from the novel you may like to avail yourselves of, chose what you feel is the strongest image, don't try to incorporate all of the below:
Battle at sea between Arthur+ his Knights and Gael raiders, on 5th century long-boats. Not Viking 8th century long-boats. There is a big difference.
A water-horse (Celtic mythological creature) that carries the Queen and Sorceress from Briton (Britain) to Gaul (France).
A Minotaur (Greek mythological beast) that holds the sword captive at the centre of his labyrinth.
Roman soldiers in a Gaulish village that nearly discover the hiding Queen and Sorceress. Remember 5th century clothing and village architecture. Iron Age not middle ages.
