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.

Review quote

"Song of Edmon is a fantastic epic of personal transformation and struggle, within an imaginative, deftly drawn science-fiction and fantasy world." --Jim Uhls, screenwriter (Fight Club, Jumper) and producer

"A coming-of-age story in a brutal world where the only path to power is combat. Burch writes characters that steal your heart--and then break it. This is space opera done right." --Philip Eisner, screenwriter (Event Horizon)
