The song

SYNOPSIS

This is David ‘Tag’ Taggert’s book, a supporting character introduced in The Law of Moses. This is a stand-alone story, but it is highly recommended that The Law of Moses be read first to avoid spoilers.

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.

“Do I make you feel more alive?”

Sometimes we come across a book that we don’t just read, we inhale where every word feels like poetry as our brain translates the story to us. When the characters seep there way into our souls, you can almost taste and touch along side them, and their emotions squeeze around your heart giving it a physical ache. That’s how I felt with The Song of David by Amy Harmon.

The Song of David is the story of Tag an MMA fighter who had a big role in The Law of Moses, and if you haven’t read that book, then try and read that first because I promise you, you will love it. Tag was a tortured young man with lots of severe problems, but I am so glad he got to tell his story as his character, although troubled, was one of great strength. Moses and Tag were an unlikely match to form such an amazing bond but through circumstance they became like brothers. Moses has a significant role in this story and the bond between them is purely magical.

“I love you Millie. And it’s the most amazing feeling, the most incredible thing I’ve ever felt. I can’t hold it in my chest, that feeling .So it spills out of me whenever you’re around. It spills out of my mouth and my eyes and ears. It spills out of my fingertips and makes me walk faster and talk louder and feel more alive. Do you feel that, Millie? Do I make you feel more alive?”

This story is one of the most beautiful heart felt tales to date. A young man, a natural born fighter having to use his fighting skills in a whole new light. Along the way he meets Millie who has her own set of difficulties to deal with, and together they find out just how much their struggles are irrelevant to the bigger picture. There are so many lessons to be learnt from this book and I’m sure each and every one who reads it will find their own message in the story line.

I don’t cry very often in books but after I finished I was left drained mentally but felt rewarded at the same time with the beautiful experience this has given me and one I can’t recommend highly enough.
