Revised Book Cover – thoughts?

I need your help…

A few weeks ago I posted a book cover, and the feedback wasn’t too great.

First of all, thank you for all the support and honest opinions. Without that, I wouldn’t have known to go in a totally different direction.
Bless you all.

Are there any other writers out there that have been through the same? I would love to hear how you handled it. Did you follow your vision or listen to those around you?

Well I listened.

I drafted an entirely new design, with hopes that the dystopia vibe really shines through. The title should be legible now, and it should generally make you want to buy it.
So here goes…

This will hopefully get better feedback.

Let me know your thoughts!
