Looking good!  :) The colour band at the bottom really helps the title pop. I'd suggest shifting her and the background upwards a bit. Make use of the space so more of her can be seen. I'd also suggest a cleaner font for the series title. Since it's an unusual word, you want it to be as clean and legible as possible. Watch that you don't scale your fonts to an extreme. The word "Symbols" looks really squat compared to the other words. Keep going! You're nearly there.





There is only so far I can shift her without having to either remove the sword or figure out a way to give her a hand and particularly a hand that can hold a sword. I'm not up to the task of trying to blend skin colors and body parts!

I think even that little shift helps balance it out. :) How are you feeling about your cover now?

That's much better, I like the way the castle has been raised & the font is much better, everything is so easy to read now :)

My last suggestion would be to thin the outline around the text by maybe 50%. The outline is there for function mostly, not to call so much attention to itself.


Otherwise I think the cover really looks great!
