My name is Dove Hendry.

I was captured by darkness.

They groomed me for Midnight Mayhem. Like a trained possession, weak against their control.

But Midnight Mayhem was the stained glass that concealed a very dark culture.

The Brothers of Kiznitch come in fours, and they’re not happy about me being hustled into their acts.

But there’s something uglier that has been haunting me for years upon years. So ugly that I have never seen it’s face. I never had to. I’d hear his whispers through my internal screams, feel his shadow brush against my nightmares. He was my the monster that tormented me.

When I started Midnight Mayhem, his presence faded.
His whispers were silenced.
His shadow dissolving without a trace.
I wondered why that was.

Review of In Peace Lies Havoc by Amo Jones
In Peace Lies Havoc was a fantastic start to a thrilling new series by Amo Jones. I enjoyed the mystery that shrouded Dove’s character and enjoyed the twists and turns as more of her memories began to resurface. Dove began the story as a frightened, confused, young woman who is dragged from the gritty, dark life she built for herself and thrust into an even darker, more wicked world complete with drool-worthy young men with a penchant for risk-taking, a mysterious show that ensnares the imagination and flaunts your forbidden desires, and powerful families with secrets entwined with destiny and tragedy. I was immediately ensnared within the first chapter and was swept away with the mystery surrounding “the shadow” (the mysterious man who had been following Dove for years), the purpose of Midnight Mayhem, and the memories that began plaguing Dove.
Kingston intrigued me nearly as much as Dove had- he was broody (though not in an “Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer” way), intense, mysterious, and dark. Kingston was shrouded in danger and strength- a perfect contrast for Dove. In fact, he was perfect for Dove’s character development- we saw her shift from a frightened, confused victim to a powerful and confident heroine. As for Kingston and Dove’s interactions…I definitely felt the chemistry pulsating between the two of them. While I had been confused by Kingston’s initial distaste for Dove, it started to make sense the more her memory returned. I will say, despite the unorthodox initial interactions between the two characters in the beginning (you will understand once you read it), the story was beautifully done. I adored both Kingston and Dove (as well as their Midnight Mayhem family), I loved the passion and steaminess prevalent throughout, and was swept away by the mystery unfolding throughout the story (there’s nothing I enjoy more than an unexpected plot twist!).
So, if you are looking to begin a series that is dark, mysterious, steamy, and seemingly filled with magic without actually having any magic in it at all, then try the Midnight Mayhem series by Amo Jones. You can find it on Amazon for Kindle for $3.99

Can something that burns so rapidly calm the whispering chaos of your cries? Or is this all just an illusion. The perfect hypnosis. Like the humming of a sweet melody to your frantic brain. Drip. Blood trickled over the curve of Millie's collarbone. Drip. Slithering over her shoulder. Drip. Sliding off and into the mass puddle of death surrounding her. The last petal has fallen, a queen is born, and the disarray of her world is about to shatter under her very throne. Raze "She knows too much..."
WARNING: There may be some themes in this novel that are sensitive or triggering for some readers.
Razing Grace: Part One is a dark romance written by international bestselling author Amo Jones. The story follows Millie Hart- a devoted nun who is kidnapped by dangerous, masked men operating on orders from a nefarious and immoral man. Leading these men is Raze, also known as Tripp, who is not only a part of a secret organization known as The Army, but is also the person overseeing the darker dealings in his city. As Tripp plots revenge on the leader of The Army, he finds himself being drawn to his prisoner and a casualty in his dark schemes. Millie and Tripp become inexplicably attached to one another during her time locked in a cell, which works in her favor when Tripp makes a risky maneuver that places Millie in his protection.
Outside the Army’s compound and cell, Millie finds herself still a prisoner but in the care of Tripp and his household- including his fun and enigmatic best friend, Miles. During her “stay” at Tripp’s home, Millie begins to recover from the trauma she faced while in the cell, and manages to bury a lot of her emotions while developing another facet of herself- a new character development that results in the nickname “Puddin’” (a reference to Harley Quinn and the Joker’s relationship- if you’re familiar with them). Basically, Millie’s experiences have made her somewhat hardened, distant, and a tad “unhinged”- rightfully so. Interestingly enough, Tripp tries to help (in his own way) Millie come to terms with this new version of herself all while trying to help her heal. Personally, I was a fan of the way that Millie handled herself- rather than crumple into despair over her experiences, she grew stronger and began taking charge of her life and actions.
Tripp…I was unsure how I would feel about him considering his and Millie’s introduction. However, he redeemed himself by the way he orchestrated Millie’s release from the cell, his time spent with her in his home, and the way he did not prevent her from executing some of her actions later in the story. Tripp’s character development was an interesting one for me- he started off cold, deadly, and insensitive to the feelings of others, however, his experiences with Millie triggered a completely different side to him. This feeling deepened during their first “real” conversation standing outside his car, gazing at the sprawling site beyond that ledge, all while sharing chicken nuggets (I still can’t eat a chicken nugget without thinking of these two!).
Razing Grace was dark, twisted, startling, and fraught with danger, passion, and situations that left you wanting to both devour the words on the pages or toss the novel with how hot it was getting!…don’t toss it. Read it.
