Darker Shade Playlist

A Darker Shade of Magic is less a dance than a race, a breathless chase through winding streets and strange worlds. Some of the songs on this list trail my magician, others keep pace with my thief, and here and there, a moment’s pause as one ducks into shadow, and another holds their breath. By following this soundtrack, you can follow the chase at the heart of the book, from first crossed paths to final showdowns.
