Music of Legends of Windemere: Path of the Traitors

Cover Art by Jason Pedersen

The penultimate post and volume!  Legends of Windemere: Path of the Traitors was a slight deviation.  I don’t know how people came to it because things were cooling off in general around this time.  Instead of following the champions after the horrors of their previous adventure, this focused on Queen Trinity and other former villains.  The goal is to help the champions and it sets up where many of them end up for the final book.  Prior to creating this volume, I didn’t think of that and they just appeared when needed.  That wasn’t good.  So, I made this book about determination and working for redemption.

This song made me think of Trinity.  The mention of darkness and isolation connects to how she grew up.  Speaking of someone taking everything from a person is Baron Kernaghan and what he did to the chaos elves.  Trinity standing up to the monster who has enslaved and controlled her people for centuries made this one a no-brainer.

This is another one that I can imagine a character rocking out to.  Can’t fully explain why this makes me think of Trinity, but it’s probably because it deals with being free.  There’s a bluntness to the song too.  Thinking about it, other characters show that they are trapped and work towards freedom in this story too.  It comes in different forms, so not everyone sees freedom the same way.

This is a song I’ve loved since high school.  It was one that I went to and tried to think of where I could fit it in.  It landed here because of Trinity’s journey throughout the entire series.  I can’t really put into words how this song makes me feel and the images that it conjures.  Though, I should probably listen to it more often because they’re definitely on the positive side of things.

    So many songs fit Trinity, because she is such a complex character.
