#MusicMonday: Fantasy Realms

Music Monday Fantasy Realms new 2

Journey with us this week to faraway fantasy lands, where magic fills the air and danger lurks around every corner. Whether you’re rescuing a prince-in-distress or slaying evil monsters in your manuscript (or in real life), these songs will help transport you to a world of beauty and wonder, where anything is possible.

 

MEREDITH:

Warbringers: Jaina from World of Warcraft

I stumbled across this (thank you Spotify shuffle) and I was immediately entranced. The woman’s mesmerizing voice, the eerie lyrics, the sea-shanty style chorus, the incredible animation?? I love every bit of this, and although I know nothing about World of Warcraft (I’m so sorry), this makes me want to dive into this world and raise a ship from the depths.

 

NICOLE:

Versus YouTube Playlist

I wrote my first three fantasy books listening to nothing but this playlist set from the Versus YouTube channel. They recently just uploaded a new one for the first time in what feels like forever and it immediately made me want to start writing, I was so excited! Highly recommend if you want nothing but epic music to score your journey as you explore new worlds.

 

JOYCE:

Flower Dance, by DJ Okawari

In Alwyn Hamilton’s debut novel, Rebel of the Sands (THE best book of 2016, imho), Jin spoke of his homeland Xicha, a paradise in the East, and it was the part of the book that came most alive to me. I love it when characters describe their homelands, often with much wistfulness. I was listening to this piece by DJ Okawari when I read that part, and it will forever remind me of the fabled land of Xicha. ❤️
