Descripción del libro
The story is written in second person, so the reader becomes the main character. Main plot points are that they get stuck in another world by going into a dark forest that is controlled by an evil Gamekeeper. He is described as Tall and thin as well as creepy evil.(Think Loki from the Thor movie) The kids must battle their way through crows, rock lizards, half decayed hell hounds, scorpion creatures, Giant worms and sand hags to reach the Gamekeeper's castle and save your sister. Along the way you are helped by large, white wolf. A sword, blue light, and Runes also play a large part of the plot.

Diseño de inspiración
I love the circular trees and the light as a main focal point.
Love the glow of the sword, but not thrilled by swords design.
I like the idea of the swirling crows in the background and then a few more detailed around the edges since they are the first thing you battle in the book.
Love this wolf. White wolf is protector in the story and very prominent, also a small hawk, a bear, and a ram, but they are less prominent.
This is sort of what the flesh hounds look like in the book, but a little more decay and less bone.
This is what the skeleton warriors would look like.
These are the Nordic runes I have featured in the book that offer protection, but they glow in blue around a cave entrance where weapons and help are given.
Otros requisitos relativos al color
I love a darker color like blue or green for the background, but I don't want it to be too dark. Maybe the sword and other features lighter to bring in some yellows to give it more eye appeal.

Necesidades de diseño
I want this book cover to draw in lovers of fantasy. I would like the main features to be a magical portal surrounded by dark creepy forest with the crows. A sword, glowing blue light, and Runes also play a large part of the plot. I don't want the children on the front cover because depending on the reader they would change. What I'm looking for is a portal that looks dark, but magical, in a creepy wood, the white wolf( can be a silhouette) and a sword. I would like it mostly blacks and blues, but incorporating golds and yellows and maybe green to give it more pop. The Gamekeeper and some Runes would also be fine to include. The game is also played with two dice so that could be a part of it. I have included some other book covers I like that I believe appeal to the same readers. I love the fonts they use as well.
Lo que debe evitarse
I don't want it to look too dark since it is for children, but not to cutesy either. I need it to have some brightness so that it stands out. I want it to say inside is an adventure and you can be part of it. You can be a hero.
