You know how sometimes you read a book and from the very first few pages you fall in love and can't really say why And every time you pick it up something magical happens That was this book for meIt took me almost 300 pages to realise there are parallels to The Count of Monte Cristo and only then did it hit me that Edmon Leontes the main characters name is pretty damn close to Edmond Dantès And you know what That discovery made me giddy because damn do I love The Count of Monte Cristo And no you don't need to have read Monte Cristo to enjoy this book it was just a nice tidbitIt's a dark book and I know as a writer you're supposed to torture your main character and make things worse for them but for Edmon it just does not get any better EVER Throughout the book until the very end I thought oh my MORE Leave the poor boy alone It does not help that Edmon just can't keep his mouth shut when necessary he keeps pushingThe book is told in first person present tense which I often dislike but I highly enjoyed Burch's prose and writingThe world is exciting and I loved the idea of a planet that no longer spins and thus has a side on which it's eternally night while on the other side it's always dayEdmon is a well developed character who loves music and I really liked that he was so much into art and so opposed to fightingI can't really talk about the female characters in this novel without spoiling the plot Let's just say that's the one bit that bothered me somewhatI highly recommend Song of Edmon to Science Fantasy fansPS Can I just hijack my own review to say if you're into anime and love The Count of Monte Cristo as much as me and are not opposed to have it set in space and the Count be some sort of space vampire please please please check out the absolutely underrated Gankutsuou

Notes of InterestI got this book because it was an First Read offering with Prime I used to be an avid science fiction fan and originally wanted to write science fiction But I got discouraged when I realized not everyone is cut out to be an Isaac Asimov and turned my attention toward my other literary love fantasy I’ve been in a life long romance with it ever since But on occasion I miss sci fi stories and will reach for one So I went into this with no expectations or skepticism pretty neutral ground for escapism literatureWhat could have made it better for meThere were a number of technical errors that drew me out of the story especially in the beginning These were mostly grammar related missing commas to be exact But either those faded or the story absorbed me toward the middle and end It wasn’t a big distraction the further I went inThe other thing that kind of lowered my enthusiasm at one point may be debatable in terms of whether it could be done better or not There is a period of darkness in that transition between Edmon being a peace maker and a killer that stretches on for several chapters And I noticed that my mood was sinking with his mood The good thing about this is it means those sections of the story were effective in conveying his spiral down But the fact that I almost made me lose interest in the story isn’t good Perhaps it could have been shorter Or perhaps I just wasn’t enjoying reading such a depressing passage Either way I definitely wanted him to get out of the dungeon and be a nice guy again — SOON But it’s understandable why he became hard and cold the way he did after enduring those kinds of experiences for so longWhat I liked about itLooking through my notes on this book I’ve realized that most of my favourite points were uotes This is unusual for me because while I love a good pearl of wisdom when I read fiction I’m usually about the adventure and so is the book Adventures don’t often drop a lot of pearls of wisdom that make you think deeply while you’re along for the wild ride But this one had than average Here are some examples“Humanity’s savageness is what makes it civilized” he answers Do all people from Meridian think this way I wonder “Technology trade computers space travel” he goes on “All are products of competition and conflict”“Meditate to master the self” he says “You can master nothing until that’s mastered So that’s the only end worth anything”“Without apology or tenderness he tells me that knowing my limits is important than pushing them”“Wars are petty things They rob men of dignity turn them into meat and guts”And “Religious fervor often brings out the violence in the human soul”There are but I appreciate when fictional stories meant for escapism can also give me something deep to roil around in my head on many levels So I considered this a big plus for the book’s depth There is also the fact that the plot itself tackles some pretty tough topics within the human experience like racism and supremacy “might is right” philosophies and what becomes of a civilization that is built on the backs of exploitation of others Dividing the planet into a day side and night side reminded me a little of HG Wells’s Time Machine in which humanity had divided devolved over the ages into two distinctly separate kinds of society — the childlike prey vs the monstrous predators — since they were incapable of co existing without the strong taking advantage of the weak The difference in this book is that it’s not too late and sets the stage for a revolution which I’m almost certain is coming in a later bookAnother thing I liked about it was the base concept presented so far with the world building in terms of putting humanity into space on other planets Not much is said about this but I have a feeling exploration of the concepts will take place in the other books in the series It’s off to a good start at leastThe cast of characters is diverse which is a plus And I love the mingling of the various “past” earth cultures into something new I tend to love stories that explore that kind of thing guessing at how culture might continue to evolve and blend in the future or in alternate time lines compared to our past and present I have trouble deciding whether this is a character driven story or a plot driven story because it is told in first person present through Edmon’s eyes and is a dynamic character but the plot is heavier in terms of who is doing the pushing This book almost feels like a preuel with something bigger comingFinally I love the way the author pulled the themes together regarding music Music as a warrior theme doesn’t usually happen At All So to have a main character who is a music lover and charismatic artist rejecting martial arts only to be drawn into the area time and time again against his choice to the point where his “freedom song” ends up being a tragedy which I will say nothing about because spoilers is uniue And then to package such a story with each chapter falling back to the theme of musical terminology that is appropriate to the movement of the plot I’ve just never seen anything done like that before and thought it was very well executed binding the whole work together as one whole “concert” of sortsRecommendationI really enjoyed this book overall I have not read the rest of the series yet but would definitely be open to it It was a nice escape from my fantasy back into sci fi And for it to touch on social issues the way it did is in my opinion the best kind of sci fi reminiscent of works like Star Trek which put real social issues under a distant lens to help us step back and take another look from a objective point of view If you like speculative fiction with a layer of depth on social issues or if you enjoy epic science fiction you might enjoy this book too
