Shadow Scale sample chapters, and a song

Random House Kids have posted the first few chapters of Shadow Scale at Scribd, and they’re available for free! I encourage you to go check ’em out. Of course, this little taste might merely be more frustrating than anything else. It’s still a bit of a wait until the book comes out.

To help pass the time, here’s one of the bands I went to see last night:

They even played this song, which is one of my favourites. It’s in Norwegian, but the band is actually from the Faroe Islands. Sometimes they sing in Faroese. Sometimes they even wear shirts. Well, a few of them do, anyway. It’s possible the band only owns a couple between them, and they have to share.

Edited to add: Hat tip and thanks to Ms. Carina Olson, who brought the sample pages to my attention yesterday, and who has written this very nice blog post after re-reading Seraphina. She also appears to be Norwegian — that’s apparently the theme for today!

    Huuugs. ❤ Thank you for including me and my blog post 😀 You are awesome. ❤ And this sampler was stunning. Though, yeah, my heart wants more 🙂 but I loved this peek at Shadow Scale. ❤ So good. Seraphina is just my favorite character. She's so brave and strong and awesome 🙂
    Love, Carina Olsen

    Is it wrong that I recognized his torso before his guitar?

    OHHHHHHH no you don’t.

    No way you’re enticing me to read a teensy chunk of the next book, just to leave me hanging for five months before I can continue.

    I’ll just grit my teeth and go without scratching that mental itch, thank you very much.

    Oooh, sample chapters! This has made my day. 🙂 I’ve been counting down for Shadow Scale ever since I read Seraphina.

    Ahhhh. I got to see Tyr playing in San Francisco and San Jose a few times. I absolutely love their music, and they are one of the few bands who I actually go out of the way to see live.

    Also, hooray for sample chapters! I can’t wait for more.
