This COULD be too busy, but it really isn’t. The illustration is stylized, simple, and gives some intriguing hints about the story. A pen, a padlock, a key, a knife, a panther, a woman with a gun. Frankly, I’m impressed at how they got all these details into the cover. The font works lovely with the genre and time period, a fan fiction based on the Jekyll and Hyde story mixed with Sherlock Holmes. Again, I’m not a fan of stickers obscuring the lovely cover art. My only quibble is that the author’s name is difficult to differentiate from the background design. It might pop out more with a bit of shadowing like the title has, or making the color slightly brighter.
