Malum: Part 1 (Elite Kings Club #4) by Amo Jones
“Love is savage, love is blind, love is something they may not find…”
Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived in a battered trailer, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks.
One day, she fell down The Elite Kings’ rabbit hole. Sucked into a dark vortex of lies, hate, and deceit, and spat out by money, glitz, and power.
There were things this little girl didn’t know, things she was about to find out and secrets that have been kept from her. Those secrets were guarded by the boys that were about to smash her world open and tear it all apart…
He may be a Malum, but she is a Stuprum, born into this world but neglected by the choice of her mother. Her eyes may not glisten with stars, but they roar with fire, and when she finally reaches her peak, it’s that same fire that will burn.
My name is Tillie Stuprum, and my story is not like the rest.
Everything she thought she knew is a fabricated version of the truth. I’m Nate Riverside-Malum, the one your girl whispers about to her friends and whose initials are scratched down your back. Her story is not like the rest of them, because her story is dead.
I don’t even know how to review this book. I didn’t even know my own name when I finished this it fucked me up so much.
And you know what I say about books that fuck me up… “Wow, that fucked me up.”
With that said, I’ve read a lot of books. I’ve edited a few. I’ve reviewed others. In my experience, I have not come across another author that is quite on the same plane as author Amo Jones. She is definitely in a league of her own, and Malum is just another perfect example of that playing field she has created.
Amo Jones writes the characters I love to hate, the plots I want to change but never would, and keeps me dancing on my toes with surprises when I hate dancing and hate surprises even more.
Keep it coming.
