The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
The Inheritance Games is one amazing book. I had so many questions as I was reading that I could barely put it down wanting to figure things out and the chapters being so short made it way too easy to read “just one more chapter.” There were so many twists and turns and intersecting storylines that I was honestly surprised when they were all (for the most part) completely wrapped up by the end. As I watched the number of pages I had left to read get lower and lower I really had my doubts that the puzzles would be figured out before the end. One thing I was very hopeful for, but doubted would turn out to be true, ended up exactly how I hoped so that was pretty awesome. I felt like The Inheritance Games was a more grown up version of one of my favorite childhood books, The Westing Game. I was absolutely delighted to discover there is a second book in the series and, of course, I immediately bought it. I recommend this book to teens and adults who enjoy a good puzzle and a mystery and thriller all rolled into one.
