Another head-scratcher, which makes me wonder why I took on this crazy challenge. I listened to music all through writing these books, but my mind struggles when it comes to thinking of specific songs. Legends of Windemere: The Compass Key is a big turning point in the story. It’s where the prophecy truly kicks off and the action is turned up a lot because of everything going on. Well, here we go.
Finally found a point where giving a shout out to my villains made sense. The Lich was a vile creature since the beginning and Queen Trinity had been causing some trouble. Yet, this is when the most horrific of the villains really debuted. Stephen Kernaghan always made me feel like I needed a shower after I wrote a scene. Took all I had not to wipe him out immediately because I despised everything he stood for.
This is ‘Eye of the Storm’ by Watt White, which I first found when I was looking for One Piece AMVs. I play it a lot when I have a battle where it feels like one character is standing in the midst of chaos. That was a big set piece for this book with the opening army clashes, facing the Lich, the chaos elf invasion of Gaia, and then the big push into the Island of Pallice.
Maybe I’m missing the mark on a few of these. That or the point. So much happens in these books and I was listening to so much music, so things meld together at this point. I kept coming back to this video game theme because it’s a very Sari-like song and she has a big evolution here. There’s a sense of a new adventure beginning in this song as well, but that might just be me. Almost like they’re about to set out for their destiny, which is what happened.
