About the Book

...Are bands really worth more dead than alive?

Only One Survives by Hannah Mary McKinnon Cover

All drummer Vienna Taylor ever wanted was to make music. If that came with fame, she’d take it—as long as her best friend, guitarist Madison Pierce, was sharing the spotlight and singing lead. And with their new all-female pop rock band gaining traction, soon everyone would hear their songs…

Except, on the way to an event, the Bittersweet’s van careened off an icy mountain road during a blizzard—leaving one member dead and another severely injured.

In order to survive the frigid night, the rest took shelter in a nearby abandoned cabin. But Vienna’s dreams devolved into a terrifying nightmare as, one by one, her fellow band members met a gruesome end…and Madison simply vanished in the night.

What really happened to the Bittersweet? Did Vienna’s closest friend finally decide to take center stage on her own terms?

She doesn’t want to believe it.

But guilty people run.

Meet the bandmates of

The Bittersweet (@Only One Survives by Hannah Mary McKinnon)

Vienna: Drummer, Vocals, Songwriter
Madison: Electric Guitar, Vocals, Songwriter
Evelina: Electric Guitar, Backing Vocals
Gabi: Rhythm Guitar, Keyboard, Backing Vocals
Isabel: Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals

"I’ve said this before and it merits repeating, it was time another all-female pop-rock group hit the scene. The Bittersweet, aka Vienna Taylor, Madison Pierce, Isabel Riotto, and sisters Gabi and Evelina Sevillano, were the perfect blend of powerful women who sang, played instruments, and wrote their own tracks. In short: they were kick-ass.

They once told me their sound was influenced by Blondie, The Bangles, Lenny Kravitz, Elastica, Lush, Oasis, P!nk, Prince, The Go-Go’s, and the more recent band The Beaches, but trust me when I say they were on their way to becoming legends in their own right."
