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.

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.

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..

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 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.*

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!

The sequel is better than the original

Great sequel to The Law of Moses. Tag was a minor but intriguing character in the first book who got his own book. It is not often that the sequel is better than the original, but I thought that was the case here. I enjoyed the way the story was told by Tag through his tape-recordings. I really liked the characters of Millie and Henry. I thought the author did a good job of detailing and humanizing both of their disabilities. Good narration too.

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.
