The Inheritance Games - Jennifer Lynn Barnes review


She came from nothing. Avery has a plan: keep her head down, work hard for a better future.

Then an eccentric billionaire dies, leaving her almost his entire fortune. And no one, least of all Avery, knows why. They had everything. Now she must move into the mansion she's inherited. It's filled with secrets and codes, and the old man's surviving relatives - a family hell-bent on discovering why Avery got 'their' money.

Now there's only one rule: winner takes all. 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?

First of all, I must admit that this book looks more than gorgeous! It's an absolute eye catcher and I immediately fell for the cover when I saw it!

We are immediately drawn into the story from the beginning. It really asks for your attention from the beginning on and it keeps you there until the end of the story.

It starts off really mysterious and intriguing and it stays like that until the end of the book. We get more and more questions while we read, and it takes a while before they are being answered. This makes it so much more interesting and fascinating and it keeps you focused on the book.

I really liked the whole story and I think the whole legacy-thing is beyond genius. And I must admit that I didn't see that coming. It's not what I thought it would be, but it turned out so much better. It's one big mystery that gets more and more complicated.

I really liked the characters in the book and they each got their own specific role in the book. There were a lot of people introduced at the beginning of the book and I got a little lost with the names at first. But it got better after I wrote them all down on a sticky note. This made it a lot easier to keep track of all the characters and their role in the story.

I really liked the story and I really recommend it if you are into mysteries and solving them.
