Descripción del libro
What if you could see the angelic or demonic manifestations of people's characters in mirrors? And what if, in your world, this gift was fatal? . . . Since early childhood, Lexi has repressed a rare ability to See. For most of her life, and from most people who know her, this is a well-kept secret. Raised by a family of mirror-makers, glass-blowers, and wolves, Lexi trains herself to See selectively, plagued by her otherness. She comes of age when the nation's leader bans man-made reflective surfaces, plunging the nation into a dystopia where government agencies annihilate families like Lexi's and redraw the lines of normalcy, tradition, and trust. As her family breaks apart, Lexi falls for a man whose secrets run even deeper than hers. Betrayal and deceit ignite dangerous consequences in a world of blurring realities. When the big bad wolves come calling, Lexi must choose between the safety of compliance and the lethal truth that could rouse her world from darkness.

Necesidades de diseño
This is a second edition of the book; the first cover was lovely, but I'd like to try out something different that pays more tribute to the fairy-tale reference in the book and is simpler in design. I'm looking for a modern fairy tale vibe for adults, but the story is much more than just a fairy tale retelling. I can envision an abstract cover that hints at the dark elements of the Red Riding Hood story (my protagonist wears her mother's red hooded coat, her mentor is her grandfather, and her family "owns" two wolves -- one white and one black -- which throughout the book are symbolic of the Cherokee legend (good vs evil: which wolf wins? the one you feed)). The wolves themselves aren't evil but they can help represent it (in the book, some humans are proven to be more beastly than the wolves). I'd like the back cover to be a continuation of the front somehow.
Lo que debe evitarse
From the cover, the reader should realize that this is NOT a book about werewolves, bestiality, horror, or shape-shifters. Please note it's also not a children's book. It's paranormal dark fantasy that echoes the "be careful who you trust" and "you must unmask evil to defeat it" themes of Red Riding Hood.
