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.

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

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

A Happy Ending.

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

None.

Any additional comments?

Amazing Story!!

What an amazing work of JD Jackson and Zachary Webber wow!!!.. they made me feel the story so strongly and definitely made me feel each characters... really love their work and i'm looking forward to listen more of them.. is only my second book with JD and I can call myself a fan already.. great job!!

I found Amy's books not long ago, i had them on my wishlist for a while and i'm not sure why i waited so long..

her stories are very beautiful, they have so much soul and emotions.. is like every single thing the characters explain, you can feel it deep .. it is very magical and very raw and that's exactly what makes you feel like if you were part of the story...

This is the story of Tag (David) and Millie.. Tag is Moses best friend, he had a very difficult life when he was just a kid.. he became friends with Moses in the strangest circumstances .. their friendship is strong and very solid.. Tag has been fighting for a while, he is a professional fighter.. he owns a gym and a bar and has a lot of scary friends who help and work for him.. he wanted to make his life easy so he didn't have any attachment, he was used to go out with diffrent girls but always treat them with respect... he was a gentleman and a flirt but always had a nice word to say.. until he met her a beautiful special girl..

Millie has been living a complicated life taking care of herself and her brother.. she dances because she loves to feel free but at the same time she needs the money.. nobody knew her secret or just a few of them.. Her life revolve around her brother and her job, until she meets him... everything changed after him.. a handsome protective man, who likes taking care of whom he loves.. he is a rescuer .. but this time seems like he is the one who is about to get recued ..

what i love about the story, is how Tag and Millie fight their own demons and beliefs to be with each other.. you can see how Tag has to fight with himself, solving past and present issues.. but when the story start, you think Tag is going to be the rescuer and you think he is going to be the strongest one solving everything around him.. but then the story surprises you by showing you how Millie is the strongest one.. she is the one lifting and balancing the love, the friendship, the feelings.. she is like a grounding force to Tag and Her brother.. Millie show us how someone with a disability can be stronger than we could ever imagine..

We also get see Moses and Georgia and a lot of other great characters that helped to build this amazing world.. still find Moses and Georgia to be a great couple and friends.. they were helping Tag and Millie whenever they need them..

One of the most moving part of the story, definitely is the Friendship of Tag and Moses... specially on chapter 24 when Tag says to Moses he loves him...

looking forward to read more books By Amy..

5 Silly Millie stars!

Oh my heart. This book is everything. I adored the concept of the cassette chapters and listening to Tag and Millie meet. Henry is adorable, I want to squeeze him and love him. How he communicated was beyond precious. I loved seeing how Moses and Georgia’s life unfolded. I can’t say enough good about this book. It tore at my heart, then mended it back together, only to rip it open yet again.

This is only the second book I’ve read by Amy Harmon, but she’s very quickly becoming one of my favorites — I need all the books!

The audio was excellent. The narrators did a phenomenal job. I highly recommend listening to Law of Moses and this book!

A beautiful story

What made the experience of listening to The Song of David the most enjoyable?

It was just the way the story unfolded.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Song of David?

The ending, it leaves you guessing.

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

I don't think so.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

So many of them, but mostly the end.

Any additional comments?

It was just another beautifully told story. This book was simply wonderful. I enjoyed it as much as all of the author's other books. I definitely recommend this book, this series and this author. Another must read.

Listening just once is not enough

Just like the Law of Moses, The Song of David had my heat in my throat. Awe inspiring, year jerkingly beautiful. There are not enough stars to rate these books. I felt I was right through the audio books. Thank you.

10 STARS MUST READ LISTEN

Not overpowering on the fight scenarios, which for me was good - I don't really want to know the intricate details of fight manoeuvres, but still gave me a good feel for the MMA background.
I love how Amy writes, they way she develops characters and feelings is incredible. I really respect how she broaches love stories that encompass disability be it physical, mental or psychological and still makes the characters strong.
For me this book was more about the love of two unlikely friends than that between man and woman, although this was integral to the story.
I cannot truely convey in words how profound the two books in this story affected me, but they have. I did prefer the Law of Moses story, but I think that was perhaps because I could relate to the characters more readily.
The plot was tight although intricate and I can usually find a flaw in most books. An extremely well executed story and narrated beautifully.

Beautiful story, perfect narration

Wow I'm lost for words. I read some reviews posted here and was bracing myself for a really depressing storyline. But quite the contrary I'm actually feeling really elated and hopeful by the time the story ended. Like David and Millie said, it was devastating at times but it's the devastation that made it so beautiful and heart wrenching. But Amy Harmon is one who tells stories of faith and she doesn't leave her readers in a state of devastations but opens our eyes to see hope and beauty even in a journey full of adversaries.

And that ending was just so perfect. I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

Both narrators have done a really good job as Moses and David/Tag, and as usual Zachary Webber = perfection. He doesn't just have a voice I can listen to all day but he's a great voice actor. His female voice doesn't sound ridiculous like in most cases where a male narrator has to do a woman's voice. And he's got a very authentic way of interpreting emotions that makes you feel what is intended by the words. So here we have a great story that's further enhanced by 2 wonderful narrators. A 5-star listening experience.
