Crowned by Hate Crowned by Hate by Amo Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Crazy & Unique!

There are not many books that leave me questioning what I’ve just read but Crowned by Hate was definitely part of that outlandish group. The ending was so unusual and completely unexpected I had to re-read the last few chapters in case I’d inadvertently been transported into an alternate reality without my knowledge.

As expected by the author, this, as with her other books, really does leave you wondering which way is up. What starts out as a romance, albeit stemming from an unusual set of circumstances, it quickly becomes apparent that past exploits are feeding present-day reality. Forget the whole President’s daughter falls in love with a wealthy and powerful businessman expectation. This story has depth beyond depth as you slowly but surely unpeel and reveal the many layers that lead you towards some semblance of understanding Isa’s life.

Whilst clearly created by a wrongdoing, Isa and Bryant’s relationship is strangely heartwarming. Despite his hatred of Isa, Bryant is also weirdly protective of her. I really liked Bryant’s character and whilst at first, you think you understand why he wants to marry Isa, by the end of the story you are left questioning just why he’s determined to have her in his life. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of Bryant’s sister, Jessica, into the storyline and I can’t wait to witness more of her antics. Devon starts out as the sweet friend but in the ends morphs into something inexplicable which I guess we'll have to wait to see who or what he really is.

As others have mentioned, this story does end of a cliff-hanger and I suspect a re-read will be in order before tackling the next instalment. There’s only so much insanity my brain can retain!
