Five years ago, Fiona was just a kid. But everything changed the night the Pit Viper came to town. Sure, he rid the quiet, idyllic suburb of Hamm of its darkest problems. But Fiona witnessed something much, much worse from Hamm’s adults when they drove him away.

And now, the Pit Viper is back.

Fiona’s not just a kid anymore. She can handle the darkness she sees in the Pit Viper, a DJ whose wicked tattoos, quiet anger, and hypnotic music seem to speak to every teen in town…except her. She can handle watching as each of her friends seems to be overcome, nearly possessed by the music. She can even handle her unnerving suspicion that the DJ is hell-bent on revenge.

But she’s not sure she can handle falling in love with him.

Playlist of Songs That Inspired This Book

This book has two distinct musical faces to it. The first is that of Fiona Jones, our protagonist, a hard rock guitarist who loves big riffs, galloping drums, and choruses and kicking ass. The second is that of the Pit Viper, our love interest and antagonist, a shadowy DJ who uses electronica to channel his hidden power. So to research this book, I listened to large amounts of both heavy metal and EDM music.

Here’s a playlist with some of my favorite tracks from both sides of the coin, as well as a few that straddle the line between the two genres. Enjoy.
