Publisher's Summary

This is a story about love, but not the kind of love you think. You’ll see…

In the lush and magical Pacific Northwest live two best friends who grew up like sisters: charismatic, mercurial, and beautiful Aurora, and the devoted, watchful narrator. Each of them is incomplete without the other.

But their unbreakable bond is challenged when a mysterious and gifted musician named Jack comes between them.

His music is like nothing I have ever heard. It is like the ocean surging, the wind that blows across the open water, the far call of gulls.

Suddenly, each girl must decide what matters most: friendship, or love. What both girls don’t know is that the stakes are even higher than either of them could have imagined. They’re not the only ones who have noticed Jack’s gift; his music has awakened an ancient evil - and a world both above and below which may not be mythical at all. We have paved over the ancient world but that does not mean we have erased it. The real and the mystical; the romantic and the heartbreaking all begin to swirl together in All Our Pretty Songs, Sarah McCarry's brilliant debut, carrying the twoon journey that is both enthralling and terrifying. And it’s up to the narrator to protect the people she loves - if she can.

What the Critics Say

"McCarry's beautifully rich narrative is smooth and seductive...effortlessy dropping references to authors from Rousseau to Block.... Goths and romantics both will eagerly await the second installment of this suspenseful planned trilogy." (Booklist)

"[A] lush, spooky contemporary fairy tale...the characters and landscapes come to life through careful detail and precise, poetic language. Haunting, otherworldly and heartbreaking.” (Kirkus Reviews)

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, great narration and beautiful story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is both beautiful and dangerous. The supernatural elements of the book are woven throughout making you unsure whether it is really happening or if it is in the narrators imagination.

    I found it interesting that you never learn the name of the narrator. We follow her, love with her, and are scared with her but we never learn her name, making her an enigma. I loved that she was mysterious, yet I felt like I knew her.


    What does Renata Friedman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration gave this story life. I'm currently reading the third book of this series and I am hearing Renata's voice for some of the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Deal with the Devil
