The Law of Moses

If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know it’s coming, and it will hurt. But you’ll be able to prepare.
Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten o’clock news – the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start. It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager. And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didn’t stay away.

The Song of David

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.

I was finally able to indulge in The Law of Moses series by Amy Harmon after having it on my TBR for years. It definitely didn’t disappoint and was actually just what I needed to reinvigorate my mind, heart, and soul. Amy is one of my go to authors and I am so greatful that she shares her gift as a storyteller, romantic, and philospher with the rest of us. Reading an Amy Harmon book always leaves me with a feeling similar to eating one of the best meals of my life. Not only does it taste amazing, but I feel completely nourished and satisfied. You can’t beat that!

Let me share my five “greats” about Amy Harmon’s The Law of Moses series: the ability to grab hold of your attention and transport you into the story, authentic characters that aren’t perfect but are fighting to be better, relationships that will run your emotions the full gamut, philosophical nuggets on life, love, relationships and such, and having her words come alive by the amazing cast of Tavia Gilbert, JD Jackson, and Zachary Webber which totally elevated the experience to another level.

The Law of Moses and The Song of David can be read as stand alones but why would you miss out on the full experience that comes from reading them together. Both are contemporary romances, each with a different vibe, but the shared experiences of Moses and Tag (David) tie their lives together and help them discover a love in Georgia and Amelia that was the perfect fit for them. The paranormal aspect is also a fascinating enhancement that gives their relationships as well as life in general a different perspective, reinforcing the idea that death doesn’t change the essence of who we are even if we are physically altered. I have to be honest, it will take me a bit till I’m able to read another Amy Harmon book as this story and these characters will be ruminating in my head and in my heart for weeks to come, just like all of her writings have done!
