Music

My playlists for this book were built from three types of sources:

  • Soundtracks to pulp adventure movies (e.g. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow)
  • Music from dragon-related things (e.g. How to Train Your Dragon, Bioware’s Dragon Age games)
  • music from the regions Isabella travels through, e.g. India and China

I have a long-standing habit of making soundtracks for my novels. The titles below are designed to minimize spoilers, but still, proceed at your own risk.
