I listen to music a lot while writing, and pretty much every book gets its own playlist. But it’s not just books. For some of my leads I sometimes hit a song that, at least to me, nails the character perfectly. It’s usually a mix of mood and lyrics and the tune itself. So today I wanted to share the songs for three of the characters from the Dragons Reborn series.

Yksi Ewwell 

Empire by Shakira

Morea Erregina

Empire by Alpines

Funny enough this was first suggested to me as Yksi’s song. And there is a lot of overlap, but at the end of the day it is the mother who wants to build a new world. And the daughter just wants to find love…

Hellena Ara

A Horse With No Name by America

She walks alone, just with a horse made of stones as a companion. This song really feels appropriate given the mood and self-sacrificial tendencies of this character.
