The last shall smite the first again.

This story portrays how life might change after a disaster and we no longer have technology. It shows how humans can adapt and find real personal relationships instead of cyber relationships. It holds the readers attention and is suitable for all ages.

Song of the Morning: ABSOLUTE MUST READ!!!! FANTASTIC WRITING!!!! BRILLIANT STORY!!!! Song of the Morning is set in a mythical land that evokes ancient China. Song Wei is embarrassed by what he considers an ill-fitting name, which means “Great One.” He is bullied by the other boys, forced by his Grandfather to listen to ancient tales, and prevented from learning what he really wants to know. Why he is an orphan, and what befell the community twelve years ago when he was born? His only friend, Karina is a gentle girl, who is also an outcast due facial scars. The mystery of his past is revealed to be an ancient terror  that threatens not only the people he loves, but all of humanity. Only by living up to his name can Song save everyone.   This story was spot on in every way. The writing is flawless. The characters are richly detailed and endearing. The pace is perfect. The plot is engaging. This is a book that shows the true value of an independent author. This book has all the quality of a book published in the mainstream and more. A great middle-grade read for those who like fantasy, but I enjoyed it as much as anything I’ve read in a long time.

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Song of the Mountain: The Mountain Trilogy: Book One by Michelle Isenhoff revolves around a thirteen-year-old orphan boy, Wei Song, who lives with his grandfather. Set against the backdrop of ancient oriental myths and legends, the story is filled with adventure, emotions, friendship, and other important lessons for readers to understand and get motivated. Song was not liked by anyone in his village, except Karina and his grandfather. There are a lot of things about himself and his past that Song wants to find out, but everything is a secret and is hidden from him by his grandfather telling him that it is being done for his protection. Will his past destroy his future or will Song be able to save himself from his past? The story is filled with fantasy, adventure, intrigue, and suspense and the Chinese flavor to the theme gives it an exotic vibe and takes readers to another place and time. The narration is descriptive and detailed, making readers see the amazing visuals the author has painted. The story has some good messages for readers, along with some interesting twists and turns. The main character, Song, has been well portrayed, making him memorable. The rest of the characters in the story have also been sketched effectively and they complement the plot and the main character beautifully. The book makes an excellent bedtime story and the author’s fluidity in expression gives the story a good pace and movement. Like me, readers will be waiting in great anticipation for the next volume!
