I’m not mad on book trailers (though I have made one of my own for an Ether Books competition), but this is hypnotic – and makes me want to read the story.
Have book trailers turned a corner? They are still a nascent medium, but this certainly sets the bar pretty high…

“Hypnotic”, is right. Very effective piece of marketing.
It’s the first book trailer I’ve seen that’s made me want to read the book. Be interesting to see how they continue to develop over the next few years…
I think it’s doable, as long as developers don’t try to do TOO much. Reading is meant to take place in the imagination, after all.
I found your post because I was doing a little studying in the creation of my own… Just posted it on my blog. Guess we’ll see how it goes.
I like it – especially the combination of music. Good luck with the book!
