Unmortal

The inhuman condition.

All things have souls.
Humankind made them slaves...
...Now they're breaking their chains.

The sua: spirits from another realm, summoned and infused into objects since time immemorial. Once they were subjects of worship; now, they toil for humanity’s sake. But not for much longer, as the human race finds new technologies to replace them and the sua themselves clamor for liberation.

Jahya, a bodyguard-for-hire, knew too well about both sides of that struggle. She and her partner Teşkul, a sua sword, can barely make a living. Then comes an assignment that changes everything: Protect a woman fleeing the last remaining institution of sua summoning and control.

Because it’s not just the human masters of sua who want her. It’s the rebels as well, who’ve set in motion plans that could finally give the sua a place on earth to call their own.

Assuming it doesn’t destroy them all first!

Unmortal: Behind The Scenes With 'Unmortal', Pt. 8: The Soundtrack

The soundtrack for my new novel "Unmortal".

In the time leading up to the release of my new novel Unmortal, I'll be making a series of posts to serve as an extended introduction to the book — its origins, its influences, its themes, its setting and characters. Enjoy.

(See all entries in this series here.)

With each book I write, there's almost always a soundtrack of some kind to go with it — music to match the mood and tempo of each scene. That said, I find I almost never listen to the music in question when writing or editing the scene in question, as I find that too distracting; there's other music I have specifically for the writing process.

Odds are you can find most, if not all, of these by way of your friendly neighborhood music streaming service.

Note that the scene descriptions may contain spoilers!

Last time I posted in this series, I introduced a few of the main characters: Jahya and Teşkul, the sua-wielder and her sword partner; Othei and Runak, an ex-officer of the authority that brings sua into the world, and the sua codex she's stolen from them; and Fioka and Azual, the sua revolutionaries who each have very different plans about how to bring liberation to their people.

Along the way, they encounter a slew of other important folks:

The final, and I do hope I mean final, proof copy for Unmortal landed on my doorstep late today. It's more of a formality than anything else; all the really heavy lifting on that book is finished. I still plan to give it a breeze-through before signing off on it, though.
