You know that moment when you finish a movie and that first song in the credits rolls, and it’s just perfect?
Well, to me, these songs sum up each of these stories perfectly. They’re the songs I can imagine in the credits–if there were such a thing in a book. Many of them I found after I’d written the story, and it just resonated. Some I listened to while I was writing.
Forgive me for my eclectic taste in music. I’m not endorsing the artists or any of the shows, and I’m not affiliated or associated with them in any way—I just like the songs.
I originally linked to Spotify, but several people had trouble getting it to work, so now I just have a list, and you can look them up on your favorite music service.
The Riven Kingdoms
Because this book series is an ongoing story, I’ve decided to split the songs into couples instead of books.
Rhys & Amalia
Can You See My Heart—Heize
(This song was on my playlist while I was writing, and every time it came up, I knew it was their song. I looked up the English lyrics, and they fit surprisingly well!)
Cassia & Braeton
? & ?
I have their song, but I’m not going to ruin the surprise! You’ll find out in Dawn of Darkness!

You are the Reason—Calum Scott & Leona Lewis

I’ll Stand By You—Glee Cast
Weird choice, I know. But just listen to it and tell me it’s not Lucia and Avery—especially in Greybrow Serpent. I don’t have a song for each book for this series because this one was really in my head. I had it in my random listening playlist, and every time it came on it just clicked.
Pippa of Lauramore:
After You–Meghan Trainor
(This one is a lot newer than the book, but it just fits. I got goosebumps the first time I listened to it!)
Anwen of Primewood:

On a Night Like This–Dave Barnes
Audette of Brookraven
