An Ember in the Ashes Series Playlist

"You will spark and burn, ravage and destroy."          

      It should come as no surprise that this is an “An Ember in the Ashes” post. The series is all I talk about, cry about, and dream about. Since “A Torch Against the Night” has released (review coming soon, still processing my feels) quite a very few people have asked me about an Ember/Torch Playlist!

I've been thinking about this for a while. I always add songs to my iTunes playlist and try to overanalyze the lyrics and match them up with what's going on in the books. I think at this point I have found my top songs that work for each character. I haven't thought of scene songs, unfortunately. But I've put together one song for each character plus a little OTP song for some ships.

(Even for those I don't ship. See? I can be mature. ELAIA 4EVR!!!)

So here’s my tiny playlist plus some photo sets that I’ve put together. If you follow my twitter, you may have seen them before! I’ll include a YouTube link with each song so you can check them out if you’re interested, PLUS standout lyrics that made me choose that particular song. Let me know what you all think about it! I’d LOVE to hear your thoughts!

Elias- Devil May Cry x The Weeknd (click here to listen)

“The story you birth will be ageless, just learn to love pain and be patient”

"It won't be in vain, To swallow all your pain. And learn to love what burns, And gather courage to return"

Laia- Thousand Eyes x Of Monsters and Men(click here to listen)
“I’ll be the calm, I will be the quiet. Stripped to the bone, I wait.”

“No, I’ll be a stone, I’ll be the hunter. A tower that casts a shade.”

Helene- Goddess x Banks (listen here)

“Finally surfaced above the downs, feeling her boldest, she came around, Cause she’s a goddess, you never got this."
"Now you've gotta deal with this glitch on your shoulder,
f***ing with a Goddess and you get a little colder."

Helene & Elias- Never Gonna Change x Broods (listen here)

“And I hate that I can’t say your name, without feeling like I’m part of the blame
And it’s never gonna feel quite the same, but it’s never gonna change.”
“Had me feeling like you were the one.”
“All of the heroes are dead.”

Laia & Elias- Sacrifice x Zella Day (listen here)

“I don’t wanna be touched by the fear in your eyes, I don’t want to be left for my demons to find.”
“Tell me you, will hold me in the golden afterlife. You don’t have to die alone tonight
I will find you in a burning sky, where the ashes rain in your mind. I’ll sacrifice.”
“Be a dose of protection through the blood and the tears”

Laia & Keenan- Towards the Sun x Rihanna (listen here)
“Lost in the rock and roll, got lost in a love I’ve never known. Shadows chase me far from home, I remember when my heart was filled with gold.”
“Don’t look back, just carry on and the shadows will never find you.”
