I commissioned musician, writer, and poet Yoon Ha Lee to compose a theme song for the Onyx Court. The song is free to share; just make sure to credit Yoon Ha Lee as the composer and artist, and my series as the inspiration.


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. A playlist containing many of these tracks is available on Spotify.
