I have a long-standing habit of making “soundtracks” for my novels (i.e. mixes of existing music) and The Mask of Mirrors is no exception. But now I can add something far cooler to that: a piece composed specifically for the Rook and Rose trilogy, courtesy of author, artist, and musician Yoon Ha Lee. You can listen to or buy the Rook and Rose theme on Bandcamp — and while you’re there, check out his other works! They include “Ninefox March,” a composition eight years in the making for his own Machineries of Empire series, and over time there will be more to come.
Alyc and I are so grateful to Yoon for this awesome gift!
