Read Song of Edmon (Fracture World #1) Online Free - 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.

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 me.
It took me almost 300 pages to realise there are parallels to The Count of Monte Cristo and only t...

3.5 stars, but I'm going to round up because it was so engaging and addictive.
Basically this is a mash up of The Count of Monte Cristo (the lead character is even named Edmon Leontes), The Matrix, a music theory class, The Hunger Games, and is set in a weird future on the planet of Tao. Take all...

I legitimately read the entire thing, possibly out of a weird need to punish myself. This book is bad. If amazon prime hadn't provided this book to me for free, I'd feel like the author owed me a refund.
I rarely come across books told in 1st person present tense, but this one takes the cake. Th...

Very good job. Plot well considered and executed. Characters fairly well developed with some depth. Dialogue sounds natural and nuanced. Well written, not just simple fantasy writing. Consider it a slightly more sophisticated Hunger Games or MazeRunner...coming of age through hard...

I did not enjoy this book. Let's find one more way to torture, debase and destroy the protagonist. And let's do so with absolutely no character development or little plot progression. I'm also disappointed in how the female characters were sallow, self-serving or throw-away. I'm not even sure how...

A thoroughly enjoyable story
I chose this as my kindle first selection and was surprised by how quickly the tale drew me in. I couldn't put it down. Edmon is a rich character both beautiful and flawed, as the best characters are. I highly recommend this book and eagerly await the next!

Eh. One of those where the (exceedingly few) female characters with die to further the protagonist's story or are bad guys.

Song of Edmon is a highly thought-provoking read with a myriad of modern-day issues soaked in a fantastical setting. I feel like there's so much shade in this book. There's just so much parallelism to the real world that I thought this book is just a backdrop to the author's political and ethical...

I chose Song of Edmon as my Kindle First choice for the month of August. I usually read mystery, suspense and thrillers. Typically detective novels. The options I had to choose from didn't sound very interesting, but I kept coming back to Song of Edmon. After reading some reviews, a th...

This book is a sufferfest
If you like depressing books then have at it. I guarantee the rest of the series will be just as depressing as the author continues to tease that something good might actually happen all to get you to buy the next book. The main character is super annoying and the rest of...
