REVIEW - The Silver Swan & The Broken Puppet (The Elite Kings Club) by Amos Jones

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 apologize now. You asked for it..........

Hard Limits - Rough and Erotic Sex involving High School Seniors. Vanilla sex, drugs, alcohol, and rock n' roll, I can somewhat deal with but usually, I just stay away from the high schoolers. I know the author warned this booked was f*cked. I went there anyway. My price to pay.

This book is shroud in mystery and suspense by the half-truths and vague answers Madison receives once she entered the world of the "Elite Kings". She nor I knew what was going on. I clung to the task of finding out what is the real deal with the Kings and their legacy.

Although this book ends in a cliffhanger, I am curious to find out what's next for Madison, Tatum, Tillie, Bishop, Nate, and the other shady adult characters.

“I thought I knew who I was, but I was wrong.”

The Silver Swan
- 1. A girl who is tarnished. Tainted. One who does not fit into the confinement of legend.
The Silver Swan
-2. Madison Montgomery.

I was lied to.
I was cheated.
Resigned to pick up the scraps of empty memories and disarrayed thoughts, I left. After finally cutting the strings of manipulation, I resorted to do what I’ve done since I was a child, something my father drilled into my brain since I could handle my first rifle.
I’m a mere shadow of the girl they all knew.
Lies and deceit change you. They alter your entire outlook on life.
I’m Madison Montgomery, and I want to play a game.
Here’s what happens when I win.

Riddle me this, Mads.
What goes bump in the night,
but is something you can’t see with sight?
You may run, and you may hide.
If by happily ever after, you mean Bonnie & Clyde.

I still haven't come to terms with this book.

I CAN NOT Rate It. I just don't know how I feel about it.

Here is what I know:

Madison is one confused teenager with raging hormones.

Bishop, Nate, and Madison are so ridiculously OTT.

The book is still filled with mystery and suspense.

More secrets and lies.

It is original and a page-turner but it still hits one of my HARD LIMITS.
