The Follow Me Through Darkness tour is stopping by the blog today with the book’s playlist along with a giveaway! I haven’t read this one yet, but it sounds like a really interesting dystopian book that sounds right up my alley! Here’s some info on the book if it’s new to you:
The truth won't always set you free.
Less than a year ago, Neely Ambrose’s biggest worry was having the freedom to follow a path that wasn't chosen for her.
Less than a year ago, she believed she could trust the Elders who said they had everyone’s best interest at heart and who said they were keeping them safe from the outside.
Sixty days ago, she discovered what they had planned for everyone she loved—and that all of it centered around her.
Now she’s on the run through a dangerous wasteland full of killing machines, secret organizations, and people who want to sell her back to the Elders for their own safety. The whole world outside the Compound is living proof that everything in Neely’s life was a lie manufactured by the Elders, which may even include the boy she loves.
All Neely wants is the truth, but each new piece of it drives her further from what she thought she knew. With only forty days until everyone she loves falls under the Elders’ mind control, Neely must decipher who to trust, what questions to ask, and how to get one step ahead of the Elders, who will do anything to keep their secrets buried.
Follow Me Through Darkness Playlist by Danielle Ellison
I spent four years between first draft and the release of Follow Me Through Darkness. Music was instrumental in setting the mood, in keeping me in the zone, and in creating the tension that I wanted to build in the novel. This is a longer playlist, because it’s four years of music! I found that I kept adding to the songs I already had, and none of this includes the Pandora playlist I created! (I’ve even added some notes that I made where I used particular songs during specific scenes.)

About the Author
Danielle Ellison spent of her childhood reading instead of learning math. It’s probably the reason she can’t divide without a calculator and has spent her life seeking the next adventure. It’s also probably the reason she’s had so many different zip codes and jobs.
When she’s not writing, Danielle is usually drinking coffee, fighting her nomadic urges, watching too much TV, or dreaming of the day when she can be British. Danielle is also the author of SALT and STORM, a series about a snarky witch without magic. She has settled in Northern Virginia, for now, but you can always find her on twitter @DanielleEWrites.
