She was everything that I wanted.
He was everything that I despised.
Until she wasn’t.
Until he wasn’t.
Killian Cornellii was a walking calamity. He reached inside of me and touched every single inch of my ruined soul, but he didn’t just touch it. He caressed, petted, and captivated it. He tailored me to fit into the palm of his hands. The same hands that possess so much cruelty, were the very same that comforted me.
I thought I knew him.
He thought he knew me.
This isn’t a fairy tale, or some achingly beautiful story about two soul mates who instantly fall irrevocably in love with each other.
This is a story about a love so painful, so rich, that it destroys everything and everyone around it.
Midnight Mayhem is the platform to which Killian performs his tricks on, but the greatest trick wouldn’t come from him.
It would come from me.
Tricksters don’t have hearts.
They just pretend that they do.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.
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.
New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

In Fury Lies Mischief
“What, so the two villains in each other’s story won’t get a happily ever after?” I joke, winking down at her.
She smiles softly. “I guess the story is still being written.”
To say I was excited for Killian’s story is the understatement of the century. And Killian… delivered. Our trickster is quite the…. dark, swoony, LOVE OF MY LIFE. Honestly Kill is perfection *chef’s kiss*.
And Saskia is amazing. I love the fact that Amo writes such feirce, badass strong female leads that literally have me praising the ground they walk on *metaphorically of course cause they’re fictional*.
I also loved how we get to see a bit of the side characters and their development even if we don’t get their point of views. I think the author did a really great job of weaving it into the plot. Overall, I think Amo truly knows dramatic and dark. She knows how to bring it.
BUT and there’s a big but because as much as I enjoyed my time reading this and definitely enjoyed Kill and Sass’s story more than IPLH, I couldn’t help but be frustrated at the similarities plot wise. And usually, I get it, it needs to be done to lead to a bigger picture but….. it just didn’t work for me at first. I couldn’t get behind the comparisons. It really made it drag for me and had me rolling my eyes multiple times. Honestly at about 65% I nearly DNF’d because I was so aggravated. But I’m glad I didn’t.
Because it took a twist I wasn’t expecting and I was so FREAKING AMAZED and in shock how well Amo intwined together the plot lines and delivered a plot twist unlike any other. I also was able to see the reasoning for the similar plot line because IFLM takes after the events of IPLH and we still have a common villain (although we don’t know all the details). She connected them really well and overall it added more depth to a captivating and twisted tale you can’t get enough of. I can’t wait to see more of Midnight Mayhem and where it leads us.
