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.” Silence. “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. Silence. 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...”
The Silver Swan, by Amo Jones, is the first installment of The Elite King's Club Series. This was my first time reading a book by this author. Many of my book sisters told me amazing things about Amo Jones and I could not wait to start my reading journey. TSS was an intense and intriguing reading escape. I was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out where all the pieces of this captivating puzzle would fit. Madison Montgomery is ready for a new beginning. Her first day at Riverside Preparatory Academy is a blank canvas and she's determined to turn the page on her tainted past. What she did not expect is to catch the attention of The Elite King's Club. They are dangerous and mesmerizing. Madison is intrigued by them. They have a captivating, dark and intense vibe that pulls her in. Danger is lurking around Madison and with each day that passes, she's determined to find out what The Elite King's Club is hiding. Will she be able to handle the truth? I really enjoyed my reading journey. The connection between all the characters in this story was great. It was interesting to follow Madison's journey. This book is filled with secrets that will turn Madison's world upside down. No matter how many times I was coming up with theories, Amo Jones always added a new detail that would make me erase those theories and begin thinking of new ones. The Elite King’s crew is intriguing. Each of these characters have a je-ne-sais-quoi that made the story even more interesting. They are all keeping secrets and I can’t wait to find out what those secrets are. Bishop and Nate were the two male characters that got the most scenes with Madison, but all the other members of this crew left me wanting more. It took me a few chapters to find my connection with Bishop. He was an enigma from beginning to end. I never knew which Bishop would show up. I loved Madison’s POV and her friendship with Tate and Tillie. These girls are great heroines and I loved learning about them. I think that they each deserve a book, but only time will tell if they get a story of their own.
I give, The Silver Swan, by Amo Jones, 4 captivating, edge of your seat, action-filled stars!
