She said I was like a song. Her favorite song. A song isn’t something you can see. It’s something you feel, something you move to, something that disappears after the last note is played.
I won my first fight when I was eleven 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, it tasted like adrenaline, it burned like sweat in my eyes and fire in my belly. It looked like the blur of screaming crowds and an opponent who wanted my blood.
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, her straight dancer’s posture unyielding, her chin high, her hands loose at her sides. 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.
**This is David ‘Tag’ Taggert's book, a supporting character introduced in The Law of Moses. This is a stand-alone story.
I admit I always find it hard to write a review for Amy Harmon’s books. It’s hard to convey in words the how and why, I love I enjoy her books so much. Her books are always full of true emotion, depth, and brilliant writing.
The Song Of David is undoubtedly a love story but told in a very different way. When we met Tag in The Law Of Moses, he was depressed, suicidal, and coping in all the wrong ways. Tag has grown and changed so much since then. He’s been successful, fallen in love, but he still has his own issues to bear. Now things have changed and everything that he has worked hard for, Tag has now left behind.
Millie and Tag’s story is told in the alternating POV’s of Moses and Millie. It was a unique way for the story to be told. Throughout the story we hear Tag’s voice through a series of tapes he’s left behind for Millie. Tag and Millie’s story was beautiful, sweet, and emotionally heartbreaking. At times I was nervous to see what would come next, I was scared for the outcome but it was a beautiful story. It showcased love, strength, and friendship and everything in between. There is so much more I could say but it’s definitely a must read.
