Publisher's Summary

I won my first fight when I was 11 years old, and I've been throwing punches ever since. Fighting is the purest, truest, most elemental thing there is. Some people describe heaven as a sea of unending white, where choirs sing and loved ones await. But for me, heaven was something else. It sounded like the bell at the beginning of a round, and it tasted like adrenaline. For me, heaven was the octagon.

Until I met Millie, and heaven became something different. I became something different. I knew I loved her when I watched her stand perfectly still in the middle of a crowded room, people swarming, buzzing, slipping around her. No one seemed to see her at all except for the few who squeezed past her, tossing exasperated looks at her unsmiling face. When they realized she wasn't normal, they hurried away. Why was it that no one saw her, yet she was the first thing I saw?

If heaven was the octagon, then she was my angel at the center of it all, the girl with the power to take me down and lift me up again. The girl I wanted to fight for, the girl I wanted to claim. The girl who taught me that sometimes the biggest heroes go unsung, and the most important battles are the ones we don't think we can win.

OMG this book made me cry!!!

It’s a hard book to read. I love Millie’s brother. This book is definitely about fighting, fighting for the right to live, Millie fighting to be a part of his life, Millie being blind and fighting to just be a regular person without the “disability”. The fact that his friend Moses can see ghosts adds a unique feel. I thoroughly enjoyed it. But it made me cry and I don’t like crying.

Better than the first!

I enjoyed this story much more than Law of Moses. Maybe because the characters were more interesting? Amy Harmon is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She’s an incredible writer and her novels are so refreshing and uniquely written. Plus, Zachary Webber is a treat all on his own. If I only ever heard his voice for the rest of my life...that’d be okay.

good but soo much death. poetic but sad.

it found me at a very depressed time and reminded me that what matters most is having loved ones around, that and everything else is bound to be lost in life. but man, the entire series is about death and its heavy. love and death, and the struggle of life..

Not My Favorite! Spoilers*****

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. I do not enjoy books with dark subject matters. I kept reading and hoping that the circumstances of the characters would change.

What was most disappointing about Amy Harmon’s story?

I read/listen to books for enjoyment and good romance, and I wish authors would let the readers know when that would not be the case. I do not enjoy books with subject matters that focuses on a life-altering events. I was expecting a happily ever after - that did not happen. I couldn't get lost in the story without hurting.This was a sad sad tale of what would never be. There was no great miracle. Moses, the main character in the first installment, was the main character in this book (that annoyed me). The book reflected on Tag's life through Moses' POV, and Tag's POV up to a certain point in the book. The story did not share Tag's love interest POV (quite annoying). So if you enjoy stories that reflect on the events of the story, telling you what took place, as opposed to showing you, then this book is for you. It is also for you if you enjoy stories that deal with a terminal illness! This was not fo rme

Sad but wonderful story

I loved learning about David and Millie. Wish the ending was better but that’s ok. Loved seeing the world through blind eyes. I’ve been lucky to have the gift of sight yet unlucky in knowing I will lose the use of my legs soon. Hearing the strength and determination Millie uses all day every day gives me strength. It’s an inspiring story that I would definitely recommend to anyone going through hard times and just needs that little reminder to “keep on trucking “. Don’t give up.

5 The Song of David Stars

If you read The Law of Moses and had any thought as to what Tag is up to then you want to read this book.

I will say it’s good and we get Moses back and in his own voice! So that was a nice surprise.
The story of Tag and Millie is sweet and sad and wonderful. It is an Amy Harmon book so you know there is going to be some heart-wrenching parts.

Millie, I just enjoyed that she was so different from other “heroines” and that she stays the same person even when love finds her. I think that is what I loved best about this book.

I won’t say I hated the ending I think it was left up to us to interpret it however we wanted and that was different. For me, I would rather have the definitive answer versus our own interpretation but again that is just me.

Loved the narration, so glad they got J.D to come back and be Moses again that just added that little extra in my opinion.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

My expectation for this one was way too high...

I thought I would enjoy this, since I LOVED the first book in this series...I was wrong. It was pretty flat and I didn't enjoy even half as much. Ugh...a bit of a disappoint.

Not A Happy Ending

What would have made The Song of David better?

A Happy Ending.

What was most disappointing about Amy Harmon’s story?

The Ending.

Have you listened to any of JD Jackson and Zachary Webber ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I'm sure I have. The performance in this audio was perfect.

What character would you cut from The Song of David?

None.

Any additional comments?

Fix / Change the Ending!

Well.... hummm....

For the most part I have loved all of the books I have read thus far by Amy Harmon. I started out loving this one. However, as the story progressed Love changed to Like and later my Like changed to indifferent. It just falls short for me though Tag and Millie's story; while tragically beautiful, is left unfinished.

Honestly, it felt as if the author simply became tired of writing the story and ended it in the quickest and most generalized way possible. Like, she hit a deadline and rushed to finish it in order to turn it in on time. To give you an idea timing wise there was about 9 1/2 hours of an introduction and body with a 6 minute conclusion, that leaves many plot points unfinished.

That said, I did enjoy the tempo of this book in comparison to the 1st book. The story develops much quicker though it does eventually stall out. It's just one of those books thats not great but its not horrible either but certainly does not meet the standards this author typically achieves.

I did like how the story was told through the friendship POV of Tag and Moses. It's pleasantly different than the typically he said; she said, he felt; she felt POV. The narration was also good as is typical with Zachary Webber. Lastly, growing up in Utah and having moved away it was fun to know and revisit the familiar locations and be able to perfectly visualize the picturesque scenery known only to Utah.
