Rise of the Seers (Book 1)

It’s time… for me to release this playlist into the Demiworld.

Below are 19 songs that served as background music while writing — and daydreaming about — Rise of the Seers. It’s more mood music than anything else.

Songs often resonate in ways that prose cannot. I think you’ll enjoy these tracks and I hope that they serve as a key that unlocks some of the more spiritual, psychological, and emotional themes of Ethan Eclaan’s story.

I could talk about what these songs mean for hours. But, you’d best give this a listen.

And don’t fall down the rabbit hole.

Or do.
