When a rogue band of the dreaded Sorak attacks his village, twelve-year-old Beynn Firehand escapes into the darkness of BlackMyst Forest to find help. During his quest, Beynn discovers his own powerful magic abilities.
The price of his newfound powers, however, may be higher than he ever imagined.
And now an Excerpt from ‘Eyes of the Enemy’-
Hidden deep inside a meandering ravine, nestled beneath the darkoak trees of BlackMyst, the village of Veiled Gorge was a secret gem, revealed only to those curious and brave enough to follow the meager road that wound deep into the forested gully. Some twenty-five quaint and simple homes stood sheltered within the ravine, hidden beneath the forest’s mighty branches. Tucked away along the eastern border of Delvengard, Veiled Gorge was often forgotten or ignored by the outside world, and this suited the villagers just fine. Originally established as a commune for peace-loving peasants looking to escape the atrocities of the war-torn kingdom, Veiled Gorge remained a safe and secluded community.
The village had evolved over the years from a mishmash of people with a common dream of peaceful living into a colony of talented woodworkers, fabricating fine works of art and furniture from the wood of the surrounding trees. The villagers worked in harmony as a collaborative team to create pieces to be sold or bartered to traveling merchants who frequently visited Veiled Gorge.

This is an interesting exercise. I love music but have never considered what songs would work with my story. I guess something obscure with a mysterious flair to it. A few that I can come up with are:
I’ve always been a big fan of The Police, and the tracks, Behind My Camel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6bZAErXVSQ4 and Voices Inside My Head https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV9JM7vMv6M are ones that come to mind.
Also Cake’s Arco Arena might work.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfBLJdq_sm8
Then fill it with a mix of songs about Eyes:
In Your Eyes – Peter Gabriel
Eye Of The Tiger – Survivor
Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You – Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
Angry Eyes – Loggins & Messina
Eyes Without A Face – Billy Idol
