The Shadow Soul Blog Tour - Playlist & Giveaway



Title: The Shadow Soul
Series: A Dance of Dragons #1
Author: Kaitlyn Davis
Release Date: February 20, 2014
GAME OF THRONES meets GRACELING in a new young adult fantasy by bestselling author Kaitlyn Davis. Told in alternating male and female perspectives, THE SHADOW SOUL has been hailed as "an amazing start to a new series that is going to have people of all ages wanting so much more." (Happy Tails & Tales Reviews)

When Jinji's home is destroyed, she is left with nowhere to run and no one to run to—until she meets Rhen, a prince chasing rumors that foreign enemies have landed on his shores. Masquerading as a boy, Jinji joins Rhen with vengeance in her heart. But traveling together doesn't mean trusting one another, and both are keeping a deep secret—magic. Jinji can weave the elements to create master illusions and Rhen can pull burning flames into his flesh.

But while they struggle to hide the truth, a shadow lurks in the night. An ancient evil has reawakened, and unbeknownst to them, these two unlikely companions hold the key to its defeat. Because their meeting was not coincidence—it was fate. And their story has played out before, in a long forgotten time, an age of myth that is about to be reborn…



Rhen’s Book Playlist

For some writers, music is a huge component of their craft. But I must confess, I’m the complete opposite! I write in total silence and I love it that way. However, my fans asked for a playlist, so I’m giving you a playlist! 

There’s just this one problem--I’m not much of a music aficionado. I’ll admit it—I’m addicted to country music! I listen to it almost exclusively! But that genre doesn’t work so well with my characters or my story. So, I branched out and literally spent days on youtube to gather these songs for you. 

This is the first of two posts—I have two main characters, so I thought I should have two playlists! First up, the playlist for The Shadow Soul through Rhen’s half of the novel. Rhen’s story is one of secrets—those he keeps from the world, those he wishes he had never learned, and those he seeks out with every fiber of his being. But living in the realm of secrets is a sacrifice, a charade, a lonely life. He believes it is his duty, the only method to protect the ones he loves, be he is starting to see that hiding might not be the answer.
