Music of Legends of Windemere: Curse of the Dark Wind

Cover Art by Jason Pedersen

Today we have the three songs that I connect Legends of Windemere: Curse of the Dark Wind.  Without any spoilers, there is a curse that involves a dark wind.  I know, totally shocking.  I found these a little easier to do that the previous two because it went back to Luke Callindor, who I noticed has a more direct evolution when it comes to books that focus on him.  Enjoy.

This is from the anime called ‘Rising of the Shield Hero’, which I wanted this year and really liked.  The song has this sense of determination and becoming the hero that one is meant to be, which fits with Luke Callindor.  He is pushed to his limits and has to make a choice as to what kind of hero he will be.  Perfect choice in my opinion.

Couldn’t get this one out of my head when I was thinking of songs.  The dark wind curse is very much something in the air and has a forebodingness to it.  There are also events that connect with the ancient prophecy, so the song touches on both of these factors.

I know this isn’t the original, but I really like this version.  While it came out after I published this book, there was something that made me think of the story when I listened.  It wasn’t the words, but the mood.  I think a lot Curse of the Dark Wind involves the overall mood.  There is a sense of despair along with hope and friendship because it is a very difficult challenge that the heroes face.  I can easily imagine them facing the dark wind curse while this is playing.

    Good ones! All of Phil Collins’s songs are earworms for me.

    Didn’t you pick Sound Of Silence for another one of your books, a few months ago?
