Jennifer Lynn Barnes: The Inheritance Games


“The Inheritance Games” is the first book of the Inheritance Games  Series by Jennifer Lynn Barnes which contains three books (2. The Hawthorne Legacy, 3. The Final Gambit).  The book follows Avery Grambs, a young poor girl with the plan to work hard and get into a good college to let her frustrating life behind her forever. But then something unbelievable happens, the billionaire Tobias Hawthorne, of which she had never heard before, leaves her his fortune. But to get the money she has to fulfil some odd requirements. One being that Avery must spend at least one year in Hawthorne house, the family manor, and that she must allow Tobias' disinherited family to live there with her. Soon she is caught in a deadly game that everyone in this strange family is playing. But just how far will they go to keep their fortune?

When I started reading “The Inheritance Games” I was tied up from the very first moment. Jennifer Lynn Barnes´ writing style is amazing and the storyline mesmerizing, although it is complex. It is remarkable that with so many different characters, you don't lose track, and in addition to that the story doesn’t lose tension right up to the last page

So, if you are looking for a fun and fast-paced YA-Mystery, with many twists, as well as intriguing and suspicious characters, you should definitely give this one a try!
