Now we’re here, with carnage and despair, and the only questions left to answer, are the ones that do not appear...

Image and video hosting by TinyPicTACET A MORTUIS : Is the third full length New Adult novel in Amo Jones ‘Elite Kings Club’ series.

That ending in ‘The Broken Puppet’ had me reeling, scratching my head trying to unravel the words I’d just read. Everything I thought I knew just like Madi was a lie. The only thing I can say with this series is keep your wits about you and expect the unexpected because no body knows what this author is going to throw at you, and that’s what made this one such a thrilling ride!!

Um....So this book is...Yeah, I don't even know. It's been almost two days since I finished Tacet a Mortuis and I still haven't been able to come up with any words that I can put into sentences that actually describe this book. Honestly though that's pretty much how I've felt since the beginning of this series. And the weird part is I somehow like that these books can confuse me so much.

What I can say about the story is that it was extremely captivating. I

Ever heard of the term Mind Blow? This book is it.

If you haven't read the other two books, you need to read it before you start this or else you'll be so confused.
If you've read this series before, I'd still say this " the first 30% of this book is a cluster f***". In the best possible way, of course. You will go from " I am so overwhelmed!" To "what the hell is happening?". But have no fear...the information overload is gratifying. Now that the confusion has been clarified...can we Please talk

My god this book was a disaster of epic proportions.

*this review contains spoilers and is long and full of bitching*

I read Silver Swan shortly after it came out and was not impressed. I chose to read the Broken Puppet and was mildly pleased, Tacet was meant to be a conclusion for the main couple and I forced myself to at least finish this up.

The author needs to look up the definition of the word.

Tacet is long drawn out scenes that were often confusing for me as a reader. Sce

I really really really wanted to love book 3. I found myself getting a bit lost while reading each chapter. I had to go back and figure out who's POV I was reading. And yes I found spelling issues but Author has already been told and apology accepted. I felt like the Author was rushing to the finish line. So much information was provided in one chapter. I love books 1 and 2. I'm still a fan of this author she is a wonderful writer.

What in the hell did Amo Jones rain down on me? If I thought she had messed with my brain before with the two preceding books of the series, I hadn’t seen anything yet. Tacet a Mortuis pummeled me with its raw, gritty, and almost abrasive doses of harsh non-reality.

Throughout this story, I was confused, frustrated, at peace, and then aggravated all over again. While I got a lot of answers to my unasked questions, in the end I’m left with so many new questions. So imagine how happy I was when I

"Tacet A Mortuis" What can I say about this mind-altering piece of fiction.
I actually felt like I had entered an alternate reality here; so great was my confusion at times.
But despite this, I still loved this book like so so much.
I felt like I had been waiting for this story and answers for like absolute forever.
So my first item on the agenda was to re-skim book two "The Broken Puppet" to reacquaint myself on the whole silver Swan enigma.

Holy shit she did it. Amo Jones dropped the mic and no one saw THAT coming. What can I say about an Amo Jones book that hasn't been said already? Tacit a Mortuis was EPIC and straight out phenomenal. Similar to The Silver Swan and The Broken Puppet it followed the same path and was nothing short of magnificent and mindblowingly shocking. This story was dark, sexy and filled to the brim with angst, mystery, sensuality and secrets. Because in typical fashion, this author answered all of my questio ...more

Okay. Wow. That shit was intense! We should all bow to the Queen of Mindfuckery, Amo Jones. Tacet de Mortuis is an epic conclusion(ish) to Bishop and Madison’s story. I mean, shit is hitting. the. fan.
Throughout all the craziness, I was absolutely loving the loyalty between Bishop and Madison. Bishop is incredible in this book. So worth all his pain-in-the-ass ways. And Madi... oh Madi. She is stealing the show! I love kickass heroines and

Wow. What a ride! This book had me feeling a myriad of emotions- nervousness, excitement, frustration, longing, and more. Amo Jones certainly can write a dark and gritty love story that will send prickles down her readers spine as they swoon. I absolutely loved Bishop and Madison together- the sexual tension is off the charts! They are two peas in a dark pod that's for sure. What I noticed about this book in comparison t

What a surprise to find out that what I thought was a trilogy was, in fact, going to be a 13 books series! 

TACET A MORTUIS  is the last book told from Bishop and Madison's point of view and it opens the plot for more of the other characters. 

Just like in the first two books, we get answers but we are left with so many more questions! How frustrating, right?

That's what I actually regret, but at the same time it is also a part of this intricate and crazy storyline. It's how he story is built and t

Omggggg! I’m positively GIDDY! These books just keep getting better and better. I did it again—I started a book that I only wanted to read a few pages on. Well a few pages turned to several and before I knew it, I was done. Then there’s this bonus deleted scene at the end of the book that has me feeling all kinds of love and fucked up. Because it was hot as SHIT!

Anyways, before my whole review becomes just me talking about that deleted scene... I’ll talk to you a bit about the book. Tacet a Mort
Im still having the same problem as I had with the previous one.
I really like the story, the plot and the setup.
Its interesting and different, dark and twisted, but...
Im not buying the age thing. It would have worked alot better for me if the characters were older, Im just not buying this story with everything thats going on that they are 17 and 18 years old...nope, sorry. But the story is good and for that Ill stick to 3 stars.

So I can't locate my old account anywhere, which is kinda odd considering it was there the first time I reviewed this book.

With that, my new page is now private and I will continue reviewing how I see fit and with my own opinion.

So, before I begin WARNING If you're a hardcore fan of this author or have jumped on the bandwagon...I advise you not read this review.

Well I almost broke another kindle, almost. I refrained from throwing another one against the wall while reading Tacet a Mortuis so Ms. Jones you don’t need to replace another one just yet. Now I need therapy, a cigarette (I’ll point out I quit ten years ago but holy shit I needed one or twenty while I was reading) and lots and lots of wine. Wait; add in multiple changes of panties because Bishop is well you all

This time I'm a little bit disappointed. She has a gazillion reviews stating they loved it and that's great! I'm super excited that her book is living up to everyone's expectations. I just wasn't feeling it.....

"It had always been messy. It used to be beautiful, but no it's more chaotic. It's a storm that won't stop and a tsunami that keeps rolling, but I'm addicted. I'm chasing the storm, regardless of danger."

Bishop is the single most infuriating, intense, heart-stopping mass of alpha hotness and I so look forward to he and Madison's sparring each and every time. He just oozes every kind of wrong to the point where he has you in his powerful clutches, has you panting like a maniac, and then won't let

Words. Words just evade me right now. This book closes the story of Madison and Bishop but opens the world to so much more. So. Much. More. Like the previous books in the series, I was held utterly captivated from the minute I cracked up this book, and I couldn't put it down.

Bishop Hayes is seriously my favorite type of bad boy, and I don't care how outlandish it might seem that a young man (boy) would be capable of such acts or runn

"Blood means nothing, loyalty means everything."

So Amo Jones killed me with this book! I blew through this so quick I didn't even realize I wasn't pacing myself. I have no idea what I'm going to do until the next book is released.

There were so many moments between Bishop and Madison that I could quote, but then it would turn this review into a 4 page documentary of my love for this book. So I'll just give you one.

This isn't a fairytale with a happily ever after. There's no prince charming and no damsel in distress. This isn't some childhood fantasy, this is the real thing. With several Kings, assholes, mystery, angst & a whole lotta sass. Forget what you thought you knew. Welcome to the story of your nightmares!


Tacet a Mortuis by Amo Jones is the third instalment of The Elite Kings Club series and is a story that can't be placed under just one category. It's a story that transcends all expectations.

This book fucked me so good. Unf.

Firstly, it was sexy.

Secondly, it was everything a #madship could ever want. If you were in love with Bishop before, brace yourself.


Thirdly, the suspenseful part of the society was beautifully arced. Some questions are cleared up, and then more new stuff is revealed to make you question things all over again, and then some new branches begin and end with another delicious cliffhanger.

And lastly, that deleted scene. I'm happy as fuck you included it for our read

Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.

“I’ve felt loss. I’ve suffered and lived through what felt like my heart being ripped from my chest. Death was a brutal thing. Its behavior could be unrestrainedly ferocious, and at times, radiated toward the people who didn’t deserve to be at the receiving end of its wrath. It tore your heart into two by taking your loved one and replacing them with nothing but the sweet whispers of their memories. Those memories will become the shoulders you cry on.” – Amo Jones” 3 likes
