I haven't seen the other incarnations, but I like it. looks YA Romance, maybe paranormal.
One suggestion, I'd make the title larger, I think it will be hard to read in thumbnail size.
The current one is in my sig line. This is the second attempt to make it look more YA. :D

Good thought about the title.

Much better. The current book cover will get you reviewed in SF circles as being a heavy SF book (especially since the blurb did not come across as YA romance at all). This works significantly better.

Can you brighten the background a little?  Otherwise, I like it.

One other thing I can suggest if you want to make it look more like your existing cover (which you don't need to do -- only if that is a goal) is to put solid spot-color boxes behind the name and title at the top the way you did in the first cover in the middle. (Don't place it the same way, though -- leave it at the top.)

Again, I don't think the design needs it (although it might help that small title stand out a bit more if it were in a black or dark blue solid band), I'm just saying it might make this book look more like your first.

Muuuuuch better! Suggests a whole new set of connotations for the title, too.
Ha! I didn't think of that...but it works! ;D

Thanks guys, I'm glad it fits the genre better. I'm also glad I ordered 36 paperbacks of the first cover. Now they're going to be rare! ;)

I did try to create one that looked like my first cover, but it sucked rocks no matter what I did. Here's one VERY lame attempt:



Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!

Ha! I like it but it's way too close to your other and anyway still has more a thriller vibe to it. I like the silhouette of the kissing teens from the last one but could you perhaps find a space-themed background?
