Chloe always dreamed of visiting the ocean, and now the ocean is the only place she has left to go. Trapped in the form of a mermaid and on the run from the Sylphaen, her best chance for safety lies in traveling with Zeke to his underwater home and staying under his protection there.
Leaving isn’t easy, however. Her best friend doesn’t know where she’s gone, and her family doesn’t either. She’s been forced to abandon Noah, the boy she’s liked for years and who she’s just discovered likes her too. She only hopes Zeke’s people will help her so she can return soon.
But when conspiracies follow her and people start to die, safety becomes harder to find than ever. The Sylphaen are coming. They’re more powerful than she could have imagined.
And they’re not through with Chloe yet.
I’m one of those writers who listens to music while they work. It doesn’t really matter what the song is; I’ll listen to slow, instrumental pieces while writing action scenes or fast-paced pop songs while writing romance scenes, or anything in between. Whatever works to let me focus on the words and not everything else, that’s what will be on my playlist for the day.
For Descend, here are just a few of the songs I enjoyed playing while I wrote (all links go to Spotify unless noted).
- Sail – AWOLNATION
- Radioactive – Imagine Dragons
- Hurricane – MS MR
- Pompeii – Bastille
- The Good Left Undone – Rise Against
- Poison & Wine – The Civil Wars
- Read My Mind – The Killers
- Uprising – Muse
- I Will Love You – Fisher
- Hans Zimmer’s Time (Instrumental) from Inception – Instrumental Core (link: ReverbNation)
- Below My Feet – Mumford and Sons
Born and raised in central Illinois, she hopes someday to travel the world – though in the meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is done. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.
Skye also writes YA urban fantasy as Megan Joel Peterson and is the author of The Children and the Blood trilogy.
