“Mare, I am very afraid for you. Things have been done to you, things no person should suffer. You’ve seen horrible things, done horrible things, and they will change you. I’m so afraid for what you could be, if given the wrong chance.”
– Victoria Aveyard, Glass Sword
Victoria Aveyard’s Glass Sword is dark, tragic, and nothing is black and white. In this playlist I wanted to create something that embodied Mare Barrow’s character as she struggled to be the good leader that everyone wanted her to be… even when there was just no way for her to do so. War is war, and I wanted a playlist that was tied to the story of her trying to do what she thinks is best in the situation she was dealt, and to show her journey through music as she came to terms with what happened to her in Red Queen, and her and Cal trying to cope with the betrayal of someone they once loved.
What do you think of the playlist? Have any other songs you’d include on a Glass Sword playlist? Share them with me in the comments!
