The Broken Puppet by Amo Jones
Publication Date: July 18th, 2017
“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.
WARNING: This review has a lot of cursing in it!
There is so much for me to process about this book. I’ve been trying to collect my thoughts and I still don’t know what to think. The only thing I do know is that my heart really hurts for Madison. I feel so incredibly bad for her and everything she has gone through so far. The kings are putting her through hell and I don’t know how she deals with them. Especially Bishop. And as much as I really despise each of them, I really am starting to love them too.
“You steal parts of me, so when you do put me back, I’m all crooked, cracked, and still visibly broken.”
One of the main reasons why I love reading books by Amo Jones is because one it’s dark romance. And with dark romance I think all the normal “rules” for romance go out of the window. Anything is game. And that’s exactly what Amo Jones does. She fucks with your mind and heart. These kids, yes KIDS, have no chill and do WHATEVER they want. I kept forgetting I was reading about high school seniors.
I don’t know how she does it and I should just stop questioning it, but everytime I read a book by Amo, she somehow gets me sucked right into the story and all of the characters. Since this book has many side characters, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with what’s going on. But so far I’m really enjoy meeting and learning more about all of them. They are so interesting in their own fucked up way. Amo Jones just has these magical powers over my mind. I guess I just love reallllllly fucked up characters.
Overall, I am obsessed with this book and series so far. I honestly thought that it couldn’t get any more crazy, and after reading this book, my mind is blown. It’s like I keep getting whiplash. Do I think this book is perfect and has no flaws in it, no absolutely not. This book and series is so flawed and is very unrealistic, but that’s what I love about it and I just can’t seem to get enough. It’s a solid read to get lost into a crazy world, with crazy kids and a fucked up story.
You must read The Silver Swan by Amo Jones first before reading this book.
About the Author:
Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
