The Crescent Re-Launch Tour: Guest Post with Jordan Deen

The music you listened to while writing the books; what songs were significant and why?

Playlists are very important!

For The Crescent: I found myself listening to a lot of Blink 182, Framing Hanley, and Breaking Benjamin. I wanted to have the feelings of being fired up and at the same time, feeling betrayed and lost.

For Half Moon: I found myself listening to a lot of indie-rock bands and Linkin Park.

For Full Moon: I find that “Waiting for the End” (Linkin Park) has become my anthem. It has not only been a very important song for my personal life, but it signifies a lot of what Lacey is going through and how she sees her life. She is in a precarious situation in dealing with being a hybrid and not being able to transform- she just wants things to be resolved and to have whatever ‘normalcy’ she can in her everyday life, but it just doesn’t seem to be happening.

Here are my reviews for The Crescent and Half Moon.
