Descripción del libro
A City of Shadows is a YA Fantasy centered around a dark, gothic retelling of classic European folklore and story tropes. It is told from multiple points of view. Here is the summary:
Tretterdam: a core of dirt and depravity where anything -- and anyone -- can be had for the right price. When notorious thief Dorian Rhys is hired by the weakened country’s king to find his missing daughter in exchange for being rewarded beyond his wildest dreams, he accepts.
Dragged through a nation torn apart by war and the disappearance of magic, he must navigate a dark maze of revenge, passion, and an addiction to a drug that will almost surely kill him. Meanwhile a deeper, ancient evil awaits, lurking in every passing shadow. As Dorian races against the clock and comes face-to-face with his own demons and other, very real monsters, he will have to take a path that will define both his own fate, and that of many others in a game he has no choice but to play…
Six unwitting fates will intersect and cross with:
A thief whose only loyalty is to money
A hunter with a dark history
A prince willing to do anything to save his country
A princess who must rise to become the leader her people need
An assassin who finds herself in a strange and dangerous land
A monster that has no name and no past, only a master

The theme of the book is dark and urban, set in a fantasy steampunk environment. Bonus points for creative, dark coloring and silhouettes, especially of cities, towers, and crows. Fancy fonts and themes of luxury are great as well. In terms of color, blacks, greys, reds, purples, and golds are great, but feel free to experiment with the colors! I've included several examples of what I like in .JPG files.
Also, it will be distributed in hardcover with a jacket, not as a paperback, so please take that into account.
Lo que debe evitarse
Please don't include a facial portrait of a character on the front, be it male or female. Also, minimalist styles are a no for me.
