“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 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 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 is an escape hatch… to hell. I devoured it in one sitting; I just couldn’t put the book down. I love Amo Jones, her unique style of writing is just enthralling.
The Silver Swan takes twisted to another level with the story of Madison Montgomery and The Elite Kings Club. On the outside, you’ll see fast cars, luxurious houses, designer clothes, personnel to take care of everything and all the money to provide for the privileged lifestyle. Under the surface, there’s darkness beyond imagination, a long history of elite’s traditions and secrets that are worth killing for.
Reading this book was exhausting for me. There were so much of everything; cruelty, pain and just plain sick things. There was also violent passion, fierce loyalty, and heart-wrenching events. Amo has succeeded again in writing complex characters with personalities that are just everything between sweet and psycho.
The one thing I missed in this book was the connection to the characters. Usually no matter the storyline or events, there is usually something that ables me to relate to the characters, at least to one of them. This time, it just wasn’t there. I didn’t fall for any of the hot guys oozing sex appeal, whatever Madison went through evoked no emotions… I have books to proof that Amo knows her stuff and how to wreck minds with words. This time the magic just didn’t happen for me.
The Silver Swan is guaranteed Amo Jones quality. Reading The Silver Swan is like taking a bungee jump with a rope an inch too long – the crash inevitable. I enjoyed my jump enough to read the next book in the series, The Broken Puppet. There were too many questions left unanswered; I need to find out the truth about the mystery of Elite Kings Club and the Silver Swans.
Oh those hellhounds? Yeah, those are mine.
