Malum: Part 2 (The Elite King’s Club book 5), a dark and emotional romance by Amo Jones is NOW LIVE!
5 SAVAGE CROWNS
Amo Jones has hit me with all the feels – outrage, intrigue, chemistry, steam, romance, and so much more. Each page was a revelation, each moment filled to the brim with emotion. I was enthralled from the beginning, and by the end I can’t even begin to explain what my brain was thinking and my heart was feeling.
Nate has so many sides to his personality. He is Malum – reckless, devoid of emotion and apathy, and as violent as they game. He is the playboy, manwhore who doesn’t know how to love. In Malum Part 2, though, he becomes so much more. He grapples with loss and grief, the conflict facing the Kings, and his heart belonging to Tillie, even when he doesn’t want it to. Like the rest of the Kings, he is a man with the world on his shoulders fighting for, with, and against his Queen, even when it doesn’t seem that way. If I thought Nate was my favorite King before or that I couldn’t love him more, I was DEAD wrong.
Tillie is SAVAGE, just straight up savage. She is truly equal to the kings in all ways that matter, and there is reason that she is allowed to run with them. She is smart and will take revenge with her own hands. She protects those who are more fragile, and she provides this missing piece to the group that truly makes the Kings a familial unit, in a way we have never seen them before. My most favorite moments are when this group comes together as a family, joking and laughing, and the love and respect they feel for each other emanates from these moments. She is the missing piece to their crew, and just like NATE, she is without a doubt my favorite Amo heroine.
This story, like all of her stories, has many plot lines running through it. Readers get the romance of Nate and Tillie, a chronicle of not just their love but of their grief and their hard journey back to each other, a bit bruised and altered, but still at the core, two people who possess each other equally. Then we have the running King plot line with Perdita and the inner workings and betrayal of the generations of kings and the rebels and the circle, as well as the introduction of a new generation. To top it all off, readers also get plot revelations that will break their hearts as well as blow their minds, and as with any Amo Jones book, we get so many answers and are left with just as many questions to be answered in the remaining books for Brantley and Bishop and Madison.
There is a reason that I devoured the Elite Kings book when I stumbled upon them two years ago. They are unique and dark, they shed light on the best and worst parts of humanity, they exemplify that everyone has the capacity to love in their own way, and they show that families can form in the most unlikely of places. Her stories are layered, complex, engaging, and completely original, and her twisted mind never fails to entertain me.
