Playlist for An Ember in the Ashes: Villains, Troublemakers and Redheads

It’s the final playlist! If you’ve stuck with me so far, THANK YOU. If this is the first playlist you’re seeing, then here’s the deal:  Without music, I could never have written EMBER. And without playlists, I could never have accessed my characters’ psyches. So far I have put up playlists for Laia, Elias and Helene. The last playlist includes baddies like The Commandant, Marcus and the Nightbringer, as well as other characters like Keenan and Cook.

I hope you guys enjoyed the playlists! You can find the others on my tumblr, or on my web site:
