Haven't heard of  THE SHADOW PRINCE ? Check it out!

Author: Bree Despain
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Pages: 496 
Pub. Date: March 11, 2014
Haden Lord, the disgraced prince of the Underrealm, has been sent to the mortal world to entice a girl into returning with him to the land of the dead. Posing as a student at Olympus Hills High—a haven for children of the rich and famous—Haden must single out the one girl rumored to be able to restore immortality to his race.

Daphne Raines has dreams much bigger than her tiny southern Utah town, so when her rock star dad suddenly reappears, offering her full tuition to Olympus Hills High’s prestigious music program, she sees an opportunity to catch the break she needs to make it as a singer. But upon moving into her estranged father’s mansion in California, and attending her glamorous new school, Daphne soon realizes she isn’t the only student in Olympus who doesn’t quite belong.

Haden and Daphne—destined for each other—know nothing of the true stakes their fated courtship entails. As war between the gods brews, the teenagers’ lives collide. But Daphne won’t be wooed easily and when it seems their prophesied link could happen, Haden realizes something he never intended—he’s fallen in love. Now to save themselves, Haden and Daphne must rewrite their destinies. But as their destinies change, so do the fates of both their worlds.

Now on to the playlist! I'll add vids for the ones I like for the others click on the links to listen.

Music plays a huge role in THE SHADOW PRINCE. Daphne is the daughter of a rock star and wants to be a great musician herself. To Daphne, music is essential to life, while Haden comes from a world where music has been forbidden. However, in order to get close to Daphne, he must immerse himself in her musical world—and open himself up to the repressed emotions that it invokes.

While I’m not completely obsessed like Daphne, I love music, and find it very important to my writing process. I thought it would be fun to share my Shadow Prince writing playlist with you (including links to where you can listen to the songs). Some of these songs are featured in the book, some served as inspiration, and others I just like listening to while I write.


1.       I Will Follow You Into theDark” by Deathcab for Cutie. (This song was inspiration for the book—hence the similarity in the series title.) 

2.       Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. (This song is featured in the book when Haden and Daphne have to perform a duet in front of the whole town.) 

3.     Requiem for Dying Mothers,Part One” by Stars of the Lid. (This song is also featured in THE SHADOW PRINCE as part of the musical education that Daphne puts together for Haden. It sounds like the embodiment of grief to me.)  

4.     Fall in Love” by Phantogram. 

5.    The Crooked Kind” by Radical Face. (I love this band so much!) 

6.     Sorry” by The Moth and the Flame. 

     7.    The Walker” by Fitz and The Tantrums. 

8.     More Than Life” by Whitley. (I can’t get enough of this song.) 

9.    This Head I Hold” by Electric Guest. 

10.     Unbelievers” by Vampire Weekend. (One of my favorite bands!) 

11. Divisionary” (Do the Right Thing) by Ages and Ages. 

12.    Demons” by The National. (The lead singer of this band was a tiny bit of inspiration for Daphne’s dad.)  

13.  About Today” by The National. 

14.  Clair De Lune” by Claude Debussy. (Not specifically mentioned in the book, but this would have been the first song that Daphne played for Haden in his musical education.) 

Thank you Alexandra! Awesome songs love the Mundian to Bach Ke it's so fitting for the scenes in Mumbai!
