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.

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?

MY REVIEW

I've just changed my review to 5 stars! Why you ask? Because my brain is still going on about this book. I am STILL thinking about it while reading another. Amo... honey child... you have once again created a winner!!

************************************************************

What was that???


No seriously. What the heck did I just read???


Even though I thought I had a pretty good idea of what to expect, I now realize I didn't know shit!! I'm beyond mindblown. I'm mind-obliterated!!


THE SILVER SWAN was a YA book that was absolutely NOT for young adults. I don't care what the author said, I'm not allowing my children or any other teenage children I know read this. Nope. Not til they're older. Nosiree Bob. It was a story about 17 year olds who acted and behaved way beyond their years. I did some crazy shit when I was 17-18, but these kids took it to a whole other level of cray. Was it because of the money? The lifestyle? Their upbringing? Who the heck knows, but it made for a truly captivating read.

Madison and her father have relocated and once again she's the new girl at school. But her past has followed her all the way to The Hamptons. She luckily finds a fast friend in Tatum, but catches the eyes of The Elite Kings Club, a group of bad boys at the school, one of which is her new step-brother. The leader of the pack, Bishop, can't seem to leave her alone and she finds herself equally obsessed with him. And so the games begin.


Madison was a little wannabe badass but I loved her snark and her attitude. However, she was a touch too naive when I consider how bright she seemed in many areas of her life. And she was gullible which made for some interesting times of me laughing at her (no, not with her) from the sidelines. It was Bishop who really kept me reading. He snagged me, hook, line and sinker. Despite his secrecy, his meanness, his crudeness and his utter disregard for anyone's feelings, I wanted more of him. Every time he did something to screw with Madison, I was busy trying (I'm still trying) to figure out his motives.

So here I am... at the end of this book... the story is unfinished... and I still have absolutely no clue what the heck was going on!! I still don't even know what this story was about. What I do know is that I WILL be looking forward to the next book because I need answers!!
