Guest post from Sheenah!

I think music is critical to anything. It really helps set the tone and it’s something that everyone can relate to. I’ve compiled a playlist that I listened to while I was writing The Chosen and the music has to deal with the tone of a scene or I used it as a theme song of sorts for a character, a relationship, or how they might be feeling at a given time. And I think there might be a song or two that relates to something that happens in a future book, but I really enjoyed it and it helped me reach the end. This is part two of my playlist. Part one was posted JeanzBookReadNReview, earlier during my tour. Hope you enjoy!

Kaia’s entire life has erupted in flames after an assassin appears and burns her village down.

She’s rescued by a god from another planet who requests her help because she’s the descendant of their last savior.

Together with Reeze — the only other survivor from her village and her appointed guardian — they set off on a quest to find the treasures of the gods in hopes of preventing a dire prophesy.

Kaia and Reeze quickly meet the Tueors, a group of people many thought extinct, who are searching specifically for Kaia.

Their intention: to protect the truth. As Kaia discovers more about the truth and her family’s past, she also learns of the Tueors’ bloody secret.

Will Kaia be the savior the gods have been waiting for? Or will she let the
prophesy come true?
