The music machine

With only nine days to go until The Song Rising, I think it's high time I released my soundtrack for the book. As always with a Bone Season installment, some real songs and pieces of music are mentioned on the page. While The Song Rising isn't anywhere near as musical as the first two books in the series, given that Paige is on the move so much and has no conveniently-placed gramophone to hand, the featured songs are some of my favourites, and one in particular has a large role to play.
