Summary

In Adam Burch's thrilling series debut, a young man must choose between violence and peace in a distant world divided between those who thrive in endless sunlight and those who survive in eternal darkness.

The isolated planet of Tao is a house divided: the peaceful Daysiders live in harmony while the pale Nightsiders pursue power and racial purity through the violent ritual of the Combat.

Edmon Leontes, the gentle son of a ruthless warrior noble and a proud Daysider, embodies Tao's split nature. The product of diametrically opposed races, Edmon hopes to live a quiet life pursuing the music of his mother's people, but his Nightsider father cruelly forces him to continue in his bloody footsteps to ensure his legacy.

Edmon's defiance will cost him everything...and spark a revolution that will shake the foundations of Tao. His choice - to embrace the light or surrender to the darkness - will shape his own fate and that of his divided world.

Amazing narriative, voice, story!

Thank you for an awesome story! I don’t think I have heard many people change their voice in so many ways other than Bill Murray and Eddie Murphy.

The story-line was top notch and kept me awake for too long i to the nights.

Thanks

Meh

In CS Lewis' "Mere Christianity" he points out how problematically overpowering our sex drive is. So why does every blasted book and TV show have to work to prove it. Fade to the morning and get back to the simplistic cartoon characters and, maybe, interesting plot.

Excellent performance!

The story was definitely not what I expected, and it was pretty heavy stuff. Lots of loss and heartache, flawed characters, and unexpected twists in the story, I was riveted from the very beginning. I listened to it all day and all night, and all day again, until it was finished.

I was a bit skeptical at first when I learned that this book was narrated by the author, but I was pleasantly surprised. As a narrator, Adam Burch is right up there with my favorites, Nick Podehl and Tim Gerard Reynolds. I hope that maybe he'd narrate other sci fi and fantasy books as well -- I am starting to run out of books to listen to in the genres and narrators I enjoy.

A Story of Sex and Sadness

Despite the very vivid sex scenes, I enjoyed the first half of the book. Then the second half started and it was like the main character through a pity party and everyone else was like, "what else can we do to this kid?" Character development does not always have to equal heartache and pain. The ending also bothered me, I stuck around through this whole brutal journey of pain for what? The book to end is what.

Excellent original story preformed brilliantly.

I'd never heard of the author-actor, Adam Burch before this audiobook. This is an excellent original story. Adam brought his story to life with narration as brilliant as the best of the hundreds of audiobooks I've enjoyed.

Not what I thought I was going to read

This was a well written book. That said, it was horrifically sad and awkwardly sexual with the underage homosexual themes. I understand the quirks that come with a coming of age story, but this was definitely not what I thought I was going to listen to by the synopsis.

Good story, but. . . .

Too much gratuitous sex. Did the author think it would make the book more sellable? I don’t know. I just know I probably won’t bother reading anything else he wrote. I’m not really into pornography.
