Murder, abductions, and forbidden romance abound in this thrilling sequel to Sara B. Larson's acclaimed YA debut, DEFY.

Alexa remains by the newly crowned King Damian’s side as his guard, ever committed to helping him rebuild Antion and reclaim the hope of Antion's people, despite continuing to harbor a secret love for him. However, when another threat to Damian and his kingdom emerges, and blame is cast on their newly forged allies from Blevon, Alexa knows things are not what they seem. With the fate of her nation hanging in the balance once again, will Alexa be able to protect her king and uncover the true enemy -- before it's too late?

Now on to the post! 


I listen to music all the time when I’m writing, so naturally I have playlists for each of my books, and IGNITE is no different! A lot of what I listen to is instrumental, and I love original scores from movies in particular. Probably because I imagine my books as movies in my mind as I write them. One of my biggest dreams is to have my book made into a movie, mostly so I can hear the musical score! But I do have other artists whose music inspires me as well. So here is the playlist for IGNITE!

My Kind of Love - Emeli Sandé

Atlas – Catching Fire Soundtrack  - Coldplay

Human – Christina Perri

Breath of Life - Florence + the Machine

Overjoyed – Bastille

I can’t tell you how excited I get when a new movie releases with gorgeous music, or when I hear a new song that I just adore. It makes me so excited to go write! Music is honestly one of the biggest parts of my creative process. Thank you for having me today to talk about the music that inspired me while writing IGNITE!

Thanks for sharing Sara!!! I love this playlist!!!!

About Sara:

Sara loves writing, reading, and dessert--but the order varies by the day. She wrote her first book in second grade about a woman who had a premature baby, complete with a "to scale" drawing of the baby's size--while her mom was pregnant. To say she was a bit precocious is putting it lightly. Now that she’s an adult, she writes books for teens that have magic and romance and kick-butt girls (and very few premature babies). She lives in Utah with her husband, two young sons and baby girl. She writes during naptime and the hours when most people are sleeping. Her husband claims that she should have a degree in "the art of multitasking." On occasion you will find her hiding in a bubble bath with a book and some Swedish Fish. she is represented by Josh Adams of Adams Literary and her YA debut DEFY is coming January '14 from Scholastic!
