I’m a professional songwriter and wrote this song after reading Magic Breaks. Inspired by Kate meeting Semiramis in Mishmar, the song is written from a Matriarch’s pov and tells the story of a mother’s love for her son, his eventual betrayal, and her promised vengeance.
I hope that you enjoy it even half as much as I’ve enjoyed obsessing over your works. Xo
This is amazing! Wow. I’d love to buy this track.

I love fanart of any kind!
Carmela Stotts says
This article reminded me of Sermiramis.
Awesome article! Thanks for sharing it!
What she said.
holy wow, awesome music and fascinating article.
To repeat from others….WOW! Very cool track!
Pat Crouch says
Sign me up for notice when it’s released. I would love to have it. Wow!
Wow. Just wow.
A couple of weeks ago you showed artwork someone drew of Nevada and Rogan’s first meeting, and now a song inspired by a Kate novel. That has got to be the coolest feeling knowing that your art inspired other artists.
I wonder if an author has ever set up a storefront to be a clearing house for fan-inspired art? Probably too much effort, but it would be cool. I’d buy that Nevada/Rogan picture and this song.
I missed the Nevada and Rogan artwork. Do you know what the post was titled? I’ve tried searching the blog for it and haven’t had any luck.
Hmmm. That might have been on Facebook or Twitter. I don’t have accounts for either, but their author pages are open to everyone, so you can read without having accounts. I might have seen the art on one of those two locations. I’ll try to look for it tonight and post a link to it.
Sorry, couldn’t find it. Perhaps Ilona can post the link or picture.
Of course. Just what Ilona wants to do with BayBay’s issues, car repairs, a trip very soon and her usual release day emotional storm.
It is cleverly hidden on Hidden Legacy website. 🙂 Top menu: Books, Hidden Legacy, Extras.
Look under Characters. 🙂
That wasn’t the one I was thinking of. It was an artist’s rendering of Nevada and Rogan when Rogan kidnapped her and was questioning her in the magic circle. That’s the fan art I was speaking of.
I think you are referring to this review of Burn for Me: https://busybubblebee.wordpress.com/2015/07/01/ilona-andrews-burn-for-me-book-review-with-illustrations/
Yes! I don’t remember it being in a book review, but the third picture down of Rogan and Nevada is the one I was thinking of.
Thanks for looking. No luck for me on Nevada and Rogan but I did find fan art of Adam and Augustine on the FB page!
Korinne, look at the comment above yours. 🙂
Thank you so much! My page just hadn’t refreshed to show your comment 🙂
Wow. Definitely adding that to my YouTube playlist!
Very nice. What a tribute to your work!
Ilona, what’s the proper pronunciation for Semiramis? Is it suh-MEER-a-mis or semi-RAH-mis? Or maybe something else. Renee pronounces it the first way in #7 and the second way in #9. Inquiring minds want to know! 🙂
According to the OED it’s pronounced si-miramis with the accent on the first syllabul. Per Dictionary.com
it’s pronounced su MIR amis.
Good question! I was just wondering about that, too. 🙂
Amazing song. Just beautiful!
Nice! Almost trance music. Thanks for sharing.
That is totally awesome!
Patricia Schlorke says
What a gorgeous tribute. I agree with the wows. Thanks for sharing. 😀
Freaking awesome!! Kate’s first time meeting her grandmother is in my top ten favorite KD scenes. This is a nice underscore for Roland’s clash with Semiramis on Mishmar’s bridge.
Beautiful. Just beautiful.
Yea! It posted immediately! Woo hoo! Happy dance!
Wow! That’s awesome!
That reminds me, will we ever hear more about Siroun and Adam?
That did it, heading back to reread the series again. I will be hearing that song when Kate hits Mishmar.
Your stuff has become my favorite escape.
Katie K says
Wow! So talented. I am impressed.
How very cool. need to look this up for playlist.
Ange in Oz says
This is just beautiful. Thank you to spaceparkmusic.
This is great! Is there a link to purchase?
Rebecca C says
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing it.
Barbara M. says
Haunting! It’s elemental, reaching out to touch your soul.
Wow! Beautiful song!
Love this – REALLY GOOD ❤
BlondieB (Kathy from Aus) says
Loved it very evocative thanks for sharing your work
now I want music for each character! The song is beautiful; thank you!
Gorgeous song, what a tribute! It brings to mind a song by Sevdaliza https://youtu.be/9t7SclAXoQw
Added bonus: i think Kate would look like her. Tall, long dark hair, striking looks but not “pretty”. If I recall correctly Sevdaliza is Persian, but I could be wrong so don’t hold that against me.
This music video makes me think of the matches, but obviously Kate wouldn’t be out belly dancing for an audience without a damned good reason. And Kate doesn’t have hooves…
wow thank you for mentioning/linking Sevdaliza, I am now hooked!!
Lovely song, and lovely video.
Mesmerising and beautiful ? A lovely tribute to what is a great scene in the book ?
Anne H says
Mesmerising. I too would buy the track
“I’m awake” Power words capturing the horror and focus of a woman who conquered her “fears” held a child she loved and saw him clearly despite his gifts of towers. Incredible song. Incredible piece of art. I am still trembling from the notes, the words and the feelings both arose in me.
Omg WOW – I just saw this!!! Thank you so much for sharing the song on your blog!!! And a huge thank you to everyone for the kind comments – I’m truly touched.
We normally write music for other artists and don’t actually release many songs ourselves (we put together that video as an easy way to share the song with you), but will post the iTunes link as soon as I have it… It can take a few days.
(Ilona and Andrew, I will email you the mp3)
Thank you again!!
Sorry, I meant Gordon, not Andrew… Need more coffee in me lol)
How beautiful and haunting!
Now I really want to go back and read Magic Breaks.
MJ Genualdi says
That was awesome!
It’s so beautiful!!! Amazing!
Donna Austin says
Beautiful music and words. Truly amazing. I, too, will now go back and reread the book.
I love it!
woow… i really like it. since i’ve recently read the books again, i remember the scene very clearly and i think the song fits very well 🙂 great job 🙂
That was fantastic!!!
