Riddle me this...
“I am neither dead, nor alive, and I’m not something little Madison can hide.
But you will be dead, by the time this is done...
the timer starts now, and the games have just begun…”

Madison Montgomery comes from money and power, but when someone close to her commits the ultimate crime, Madison must live with her tainted name for the rest of her life. When she begins Riverside Preparatory Academy, the private school her father has swept her into in The Hamptons, she hopes for a fresh start. What she wasn't hoping for was the pack of bad boys who run the school; ten, to be exact. When Madison gains the attention of their leader, Bishop Vincent Hayes, a whole new world that she didn't think existed is exposed to her. A whole world that starts and ends with The Elite Kings Club and these boys, are about to flip her world upside down. Secrets are overflowing and family lies are about to be exposed. Is there more to Madison Montgomery than even she knows?

About this book:
I need to admit something right now. The Silver Swan is f*cked. It might be the most insane story I've ever written with equally insane characters. Who knew? You know, when I started this book, it was supposed to be YA. I wanted to write a book that my sisters could read. A book that won't have people look at my mum like "damn... what sort of messed up shit happened to your kid?". The angst, the assholeness, the games, the f**kery, the WHAT THE F**KING F**K ARE YOU DOING???!!!...
I cannot even.... anyway, this is a warning (and the only one I'll give you). It's crazy. I don't compare my work to my others, but this book is f**ked. It will most likely stomp all the f**k over people's hard limits (and not give a sh*t while it's doing it) and will make you second guess all the morals you thought you had.
This most definitely is not looking like a love story right now... more like a..... I don't even....*shakes head* anyway, I apologise now. You asked for it..........

“Nate?” I whisper. “Maybe I took a wrong turn.”
“Nate!” I yell down the phone. “This isn’t funny.”
“I’m not laughing, sis. Keep going, we can see your headlights.” What am I doing? I’m basically relying on the fact that Nate and I had bonded a little and that both our parents are together. I’m not sure those facts are worth my life. No, he wouldn’t. I’m just being paranoid. The only time, except for school, where I didn’t bring my fucking pistol either. I sag in defeat. My dad will not be impressed with my not carrying, and my mom will no doubt be screaming at me from the other side about how these are the reasons why she and my dad educated me so much on firearms. I’ve failed as a fucking daughter. I shuffle up in my seat.
“Nate, I don’t fucking see anything up here but ja—OMG!” I slam on the breaks, all four tires locking up in a skid. I squeeze the steering wheel tightly, banging down the locks on the doors. “Nate!” I yell into the phone.
Slowly, I look up out the front windscreen, the thick dust from my tires interrupting the loose gravel still floating in the air and that’s when I see it again.
Ten men.
Ten dark hoodies covering their faces.
Ten—“Nate..” understanding sets in. Ten.
Slamming the gear into reverse, I’m just about to floor it backwards—to hell with anything or anyone behind me—when my driver’s window smashes into a million pieces, the tiny shards of glass falling onto my lap. I scream, my hands coming up to shield my face just as an arm slips inside and pops up the lock.
A deep menacing chuckle breathes over the back of my neck just as a leather gloved hand wraps around my mouth and pulls me out of the car. “Hello Madison. You don't know us, but we know you. We want to play a game. Here's what happens if you lose...”


I hate Amo Jones. 

That's probably not the best way to start a review, but now that I have your attention, let me tell you why... 

She is fucking brilliant. This book. THIS BOOK!!! Holy crap. It made me feel more alive than I have felt in a long time. Who needs skydiving, bungy-jumping, and other death-defying hobbies; become a reader and pick up this book. It will leave you gasping for breath. 

You know that feeling you get after downing one too many energy drinks. The jitters that follow once the high levels of caffeine replace the blood in your veins, that's the effect this book had on me. My heartbeat kicked up a notch in an adrenalin-spiked rush. There is no other way of explaining the physical reaction I had to this story. 

Fear, angst, excitement - These are just a few of the many emotions that swamped me as I read this book. I felt like I was in the story, right alongside Madi as she fought to understand what the hell was going on around her, even as she battled with losing her heart to a guy with a blackened soul. I hold onto hope that Bishop wasn't quite as wicked as he was made out to be, though, and the same goes for the rest of the Kings. After all, actions speak louder than words, and I saw the tenderness he showed toward Madi.

With its dark, twisted plot filled with deceit and lies, I was a mess by the end. And let me tell you, that ending! I swear Jones unleashed a demon in me when I read those words THE END. I need the next book in this series the way I need oxygen. My life will never be the same after reading this book, and if I don't get my hands on the next one soon, I may die from suspense. 

Well played, Amo. You're a master at your craft and I cannot wait for more.
