The male figure is okay.

Something about the female figure seems off. The smile is a big part of it. Not angst-y enough. Too posed.

The font doesn't hold up well in thumbnail for legibility.

Definitely not a YA title, from the blurb...

If there's humor/parody to this, I wonder if a more cartoony approach might be the way to go...

Yep, total spoof/comedy, and not a young-adult story, more of an older teen/adult story. I like the female, she looks Angelina Jolie-ish to me, but my problem is that there are no female vampires in the story, so it didn't exactly sit well for me when I saw it this morning. But I love her '

' face, it made me giggle, so I'm torn on it...
OK, good to know.

The cover may work then, but I'd still reconsider the font work...

I liked it. There's something vacuous about the girl's face that suggests she is not the main character. if your artist could make his hand on her arm pop more, it might be all you need for the naysayers. Definitely says humor and spoof to me. Reminds me a bit of all those "I Was a Teenage X" in the 50s and 60s (and reprised with humor in "I Was a Teenaged Werewolf" with Michael J. Fox in the 80s.
The Michael J. Fox thing was just called Teen Wolf, actually.

And a relaunch of Teen Wolf is currently airing on MTV or something like it...
