The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Rating: 5/5 stars
Review: I was hooked from the first chapter of this book! Avery needs to survive High School but that changes when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves his fortune to Avery but she doesn't know who he is. In order to get her inheritance, she must stay at the house where all games, puzzles, and riddles were played and not by herself but with the Hawthorne family including 4 boys. Avery needs to play the game with the family in order to survive.
When I read the summary of this one, I knew I had to get this book in my hands and read it because it sounded that good. And guess what? It didn't disappoint. The author brought everything she promised into the book. I loved Jennifer's writing and the story plotline. It's very unique and something I have never read before. I read 50% of the book in one day so you know that it's good! This mystery book didn't have a disappointing mystery behind it and kept me on my feet to know all the secrets in the Hawthorne house also how Avery might have known Tobias.
The characters I enjoyed a lot in this book. Avery is a strong and brave character who tries to survive in Hawthorne House when everyone pretty much wants to kill her. I enjoyed her development throughout the book and didn't give up on the mystery. She also has an older half-sister who she tries to protect and falls in love with. The romance in this book was a love triangle trope. Usually, I don't enjoy love triangles because I get stuck on who to ship but for this book, I enjoyed it even though I was shipping Avery with different boys. I loved the Hawthorne boys especially Grayson. Kind of fell in love with him but let us just say that you are most likely to fall in love with one of them. I hope to see them more in the second book.
This book was really enjoyable with a great plot story, page-turners, characters, and mystery. I can see why this is being turned into a movie or tv show (can't remember which). I will most likely be reading the second book when it comes out. This book is recommended to those who love mystery, thrillers, and fans of One of Us is Lying.
