This cover image has an interesting history. It is for the cover of the third Endgames light novel series "Fire Fox" which once again follows the adventures of Komugiko's Endgames Avatar Sunay (a taller, longer haired and properly colored version of Mugi herself). Now, there is actually a scene in the book where the wolf spirit Rola (in the black bikini there) instigates the use of swimwear for herself and Sunay to distract soldiers on a beach raid. I joked with Thomas (the author) that if we were really terrible people I should do that scene as the cover of this next book in a completely shameless use of cover art to sell books. Given the nature of the scene, and the ridiculousness of the situation, i basically went [challenge accepted] and... this is the result. Oddly enough, its actually not bad at all, and might just work very well as the cover.
