Sixteen-year old Anna Arden was once just the magically barren girl from an elite Luminate family. Now she has broken the Bindingand Praetheria, the creatures held captive by the spell, wreak havoc across Europe. Lower-class citizens have access to magic for the first time, while other Luminates lose theirs forever. Austria and Hungary are at odds once more.

Anna Arden did not know breaking the Binding would break the world.

Anna thought the Praetheria were on her side, content and grateful to be free from the Binding. She thought her cousin Matyas's blood sacrifice to the disarm the spell would bring peace, equality, justice. She thought her future looked like a society that would let her love a Romani boy, Gabor.

But with the Monarchy breathing down her neck and the Praetheria intimidating her at every turn, it seems the conspiracies have only just begun.


As threat of war sweeps the region, Anna quickly discovers she can't solve everything on her own. Now there's only one other person who might be able to save the country before war breaks out. The one person Anna was sure she'd never see again. A bandit. A fellow outlaw. A man known as the King of Crows. Matyas.

Now on to the playlist!

Book Playlist


Some notes on the playlist:

Like most of my book playlists, this one is eclectic: some of the songs convey a mood or theme, others help me establish the setting or characters.

To start with, “I of the Storm,” by Of Monsters and Men is Anna’s theme song, as she grapples with her shadows and demons in the aftermath of BLOOD ROSE REBELLION.
Coldplay’s “Spies” echoes in fun ways the conspiracies that run through the book (and the book’s title!)

Ruelle’s “Monsters” speaks to a recurring theme in LOST CROW CONSPIRACY: what is a monster? And how do we confront what is monstrous in ourselves?

The fourth song, Johann Strauss’s Zeitgeister is a waltz published just prior to the period of the novel and would have been a likely choice at any of the balls Anna attends in Vienna.

Goran Bregovićs haunting “Ederlezi” is a popular Romani folksong from the Balkan region. It’s not a song that Gábor or his contemporaries would have known, as it was written during World War II, but it has roots in the haunting Romani folksongs Gábor would have been familiar with. The title “Ederlezi” references a Romani celebration of St. George’s daythough in this case, the title carries dual weight, as St. Georges day (May 6th) was also the day a train carried cars of Romani prisoners from Sarajevo to German concentration camps.

Faure’s “Pavanne,” with its otherworldly melodies speaks to both the human and praetherian magic in the story.

The next couple of songs are for my second point of view: one of Anna’s cousins and one of my favorite voices to write. Scott Stapp’s “Dying to Live” will make sense in context of the story (I don’t want to spoil anything) and Motorhead’s “Ace of Spades.”

Passenger’s “Blooddstains” echoes the bittersweet arc of the romance in LOST CROWplus, the album is called Flight of the Crow, so how could I pass that up?

Both Hozier’s “Arsonist’s Lullaby” and Of Monsters and Men’s “Wolves Without 
Teeth” are for some of my praetheria, both dangerous and beautiful: Zhivka and Vasilisa.

The final two songsTwenty-one Pilot’s “Truce” and 2WEI’s “Survivor” capture the feeling at the end of this middle book in my trilogy: fighting to survive against daunting odds.


I had fun putting this togetherhopefully readers enjoy it too!





About Rosalyn:
Rosalyn Eves grew up in the Rocky Mountains, dividing

her time between reading books and bossing her 

siblings into performing her dramatic scripts. As an 

adult, the telling and reading of stories is still one of 

her  favorite things to do. When she’s not reading or 

writing,she enjoys spending time with her chemistry 

professor husband and three children, watching British 

period pieces, or hiking through the splendid landscape 

of southern Utah, where she lives. She dislikes 

housework on principle.

She has a PhD in English from Penn State, which means she also endeavors to

works.

  3. I loved Blood Rose Rebellion since I read an ARC for review and have been eagerly awaiting Lost Crow Conspiracy since I finished it. I always love reading authors playlists for their books. Creed(Scott Stapp) was actually my first concert in 2009. I later found out that my husband's band was on the last leg of that tour. It was exactly a year before we met. I can't wait to read Lost Crow Conspiracy while listening to Rosalyn's playlist!
