Music of Legends of Windemere: Charms of the Feykin

Cover Art by Jason Pedersen

Did I say an earlier book was driving me crazy with finding music?  Well, this one really took the crown.  Legends of Windemere: Charms of the Feykin was a fun story to write.  Yet, it was the hardest to really put through this wringer.  I can’t explain why.  The funny thing is that I was inspired by more music for this book than others, but I can’t really remember the tunes.  I just know that I was listening to a lot while doing the outlines.

This one actually came to my mind first and then I was stumped.  It really made me think of the Delvin/Nyx relationship that gets a spotlight here.  Just can’t figure out which one of them would be singing.  I find that I write a lot of relationships where the people involved get hope and strength from it.  Maybe that’s all relationships?  At least the healthy ones.  I’ve read many stories where they’re just kind of there.

This one came to me when I was just going through really old YouTube viewings.  Makes me think of cults and a brewing war, which is part of the story.  There’s the Feykin-hunting cult and the Feykin themselves who are preparing to attack.  In some ways, they act like their leaders can walk on water and carry them to victory through divine actions.  Of course, this results in some utter disasters.

This might be a cop out, but I couldn’t think of anything else.  Long ago, I was thinking of a design for Delvin’s temple area.  This music video and song guided me through that.  I even had a flying whale at some point, but removed that out of it being too close to what I was looking at.  So, I probably wouldn’t have had Binhadar Falls and the plateau.

    Wooo! You were on a roll with these songs! The Juice WRLD and Marshmello song is very compelling. And Linkin Park songs usually seem fitting for your series. For some reason I thought of Lindsey Stirling’s music too for some reason.
