*This book is a spin-off of The Law of Moses, featuring David 'Tag' Taggert, a supporting character in The Law of Moses. It is recommended that The Law of Moses be read first to avoid spoilers.*

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.

    Amazing book

    I read this after THE LAW OF MOSES which was the first Amy Harmon book I've read. I'm so happy I found this author. Best books I've read in a couple of years. THE SONG OF DAVID had me blubbering at the end but it wasn't an unhappy ending. It was amazing - like these two books. You gotta read them!

    Brilliant! Un-put-down-able! Beautifully written

    Brilliant! Un-put-down-able! Beautifully written and an emotional roller-coaster ride. Ms Harmon is my new favourite author - I loved Law of Moses and The Song of David is just as unforgettable. Ms Harmon brings the characters to life in such a way that I feel that I know them personally and I felt their emotional journey with them. I can't recommend this book highly enough!
