Music Monday with Abigail Owen

Confession time, when I decided to share a playlist for my upper YA fantasy romance, The Liar’s Crown, I didn’t actually put it together myself. *gasp*

It’s true, but I have a good reason. A great reason actually. Shannon at @the_reel_bookery on Instagram is an awesome reader, bookstagrammer, and a fan of this book and series. Shannon took the time and effort to make a playlist for the book herself and shared it with me…and I absolutely love what she picked!

If you haven’t discovered the first book of the Dominions trilogy yet, The Liar’s Crown is a dark fantasy romance. I’m talking heavy on the romance, heavy on the fantasy and world building, and the darkness is literal with both the villain and the hero being Shadowraiths who are made of and wield shadows. So of course, any playlist for this book needs to have a haunting, shadowy, luscious kind of feel to it, and that’s exactly what Shannon put together!

In fact, I listened to this playlist a lot while I worked on book two, The Stolen Throne, which releases May 2nd. And I’m listening to it again as I now work on the third and final book. I am particularly fond of the Elvis remake!

So…without further ado, here is Shannon’s playlist for The Liar’s Crown. It is fan-freaking-tastic!

Some shadows protect you…others will kill you in this dazzling new fantasy series from award-winning author Abigail Owen.

Everything about my life is a lie. As a hidden twin princess, born second, I have only one purpose—to sacrifice my life for my sister if death comes for her. I’ve been living under the guise of a poor, obscure girl of no standing, slipping into the palace and into the role of the true princess when danger is present.

Now the queen is dead and the ageless King Eidolon has sent my sister a gift—an eerily familiar gift—and a proposal to wed. I don’t trust him, so I do what I was born to do and secretly take her place on the eve of the coronation. Which is why, when a figure made of shadow kidnaps the new queen, he gets me by mistake.

As I try to escape, all the lies start to unravel. And not just my lies. The Shadowraith who took me has secrets of his own. He struggles to contain the shadows he wields—other faces, identities that threaten my very life.

Winter is at the walls. Darkness is looming. And the only way to save my sister and our dominion is to kill Eidolon…and the Shadowraith who has stolen my heart.
