The Broken Puppet (The Kings Elite #2) By Amo Jones

“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 received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

When I read the first book, The Silver Swan, I couldn't stop raving about it for weeks. I kept having theories over what was happening and who was who. And this book ended no differently. 

In my last review, I'm pretty sure I mentioned thinking it was supernatural, because of their reference to 'PUPS' and 'alpha' and so on, it made me believe they were a pack of wolves. And hey, they've been called that a time or two from some of the female characters. So, my theory is still out there on that one LOL I'm not going to drop it. 
My latest theory is that they are a cult. Which would clearly explain the virgin sacrifices etc. Or they're just really crappy mafia people. It could either way LOL They could just be sick assholes.

I have to mention also, that this book is darker than the other one. It has little glimpses into Sam's past and it's not pretty. It's dark, it's rough and it's sickening. 
But something inside her switched on after seeing what she did in the last book and she's started to remember little bits and pieces.

The ONE and ONLY thing that annoys me with this book is Sammy. I feel like we could stab her in the chest and she'd still question if you were good or bad or if she can trust you or not. SAMMY, THEY ARE ALL UNTRUSTWORTHY. 
But each and every time she walks right into it. Literally. I have to roll my eyes because it's been slapped in her face so many times, I don't even know why she goes along with them. I don't get it. I really don't. It just makes her character look really dumb and stupid when in the rest of the parts, she's actually pretty level headed and nice. 
It's the only part that doesn't fit the story. She's got her wits about her the rest of the time but when it comes to the 'pack of wolves' she's a blonde bimbo with the age capacity of a five-year old.

The thing I love the most about the series. The suspense. It gets to me every time and the not knowing. I feel like I have twenty-million more questions. And I've already written down my predictions on the ending of this one. Only time will tell if I'm right or wrong. 

Even with that characteristic trait dilemma, I still loved the story. I have to make something up in my head when she does something stupid. Like they forced her or she didn't just say that after they just did the worst possible thing. 
And hey, why doesn't she PHONE THE BLOODY POLICE. 

Can you tell how worked up I get over the book???? LOL

Amo Jones is an amazing writer. This story is intense, it's dark and compelling. I can't wait for the third in the series. The last one. *squeal*

The Silver Swan By Amo Jones

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?

I can't believe it's taken me until now to review this book. 
I do have an excuse. 
First, my computer broke.
Then my blog was down and wouldn't let me post anything. 
Then my wifi got hacked and had a virus on. 
And then... My computer blooming broke, again, twice...

So here I am, catching up on reviews. 

BUT THIS BOOK!!! I'll never forget it. 
Even Charlotte (My Book Whore) couldn't put it down once I recommended it to her. She said it had her completely hooked and by the time we were finished, we had our own theories. For some reason, we can see this book going in a paranormal direction even though there isn't anything to say that it is. It's just a feeling. 

Silver Swan gave me all the feels. 
It kind of reminded me a little of Rachel Van Dyken's Elite Series, Tijan's, Fallen Crest and The Royals series. 

I'm not going to give anything away, but know, this book is brilliant. Book two is releasing soon and I CANNOT wait for it to be released. 

My only hang up was Madison's reaction to the boys in the book. I think she kissed everyone of them, even one's that had been an asshole to her. Well, they all were, but not as bad as some. 
She seemed kind of naive. I hope in book two we get to see a backbone on her.
