  • (12 reviews)

    The Inheritance Games is a thrilling YA mystery by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, for readers 13+ and fans of One of Us is Lying and Knives Out.

    Described by the publisher as a “Cinderella story with deadly stakes”, it has been hugely popular with readers, and reviewers on TikTok. There are rumours of a The Inheritance Games movie or TV series on Amazon coming soon.

    The books follow Avery Grambs - a teenager working hard for a better future, whose fortunes change in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves her his fortune.

    The catch is that Avery has to move into Hawthorne House and live with Tobias’ disinherited family, including his grandson Grayson Hawthorne, the heir-apparent, and his three brothers. The four boys had everything and now are determined to solve the mystery as to why Avery has taken their inheritance from them. How far will they go to keep their fortune?

    The trilogy needs to be read in order, starting with book one The Inheritance Games.
