Edgar Award Nominee, Best Young Adult Mystery

Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, and New York Public LibraryBest YA Book of the Year

“Barnes is a master of puzzles and plot twists.
The Inheritance Games was the most fun I’ve had all year.”―E. Lockhart, bestselling author of We Were Liars and Again Again

"A thrilling blend of family secrets, illicit romance and high-stakes treasure hunt, set in the mysterious world of Texas billionaires. The nonstop twists kept me guessing until the very last page!"―
Katharine McGee, New York Times bestselling author of American Royals

"Impossible to put down."―
Buzzfeed

* "this strong,
Knives Out-esque series opener...provides ample enjoyment."―Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Barnes's meticulously crafted novel is like the film
Knives Out for the YA world, perfect for any reader seeking suspense, romance, and glamour. ...Barnes crafts high-stakes tension, a swoony love triangle, and a large but memorable cast of characters. Fun and fast-paced, fans of Karen M. McManus's One of Us is Lying and Maureen Johnson's Truly Devious will find a new home at Hawthorne House."―SLJ

* "Part
The Westing Game, part We Were Liars, completely entertaining."―Kirkus, starred review

"[A] well-characterized mystery that's packed to the brim with twists and tricks. Hand immediately to teen fans of
Knives Out or readers who love Maureen Johnson's Truly Devious series."―Booklist

"Prickly, witty, and stubborn as a mule, Avery is an eminently likable protagonist, and her savvy ability to manage the obnoxiously privileged people she suddenly finds herself surrounded by is admirable, helped plenty by her quippy one-liners that level even the snobbiest among them."―
BCCB

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good.
By jessica ford on October 26, 2022
3.5 stars

This book series is getting lots of attention. The covers are gorgeous and I love stories with lots of clues and mystery. This book has that. However, I wasn't blown away by this game. I am interested enough to read book 2, the Hawthorne Legacy. So that's saying something. But I wouldn't say that I loved it. I also wouldn't say that I hated it. It's good. I'd say that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect escapism!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on September 27, 2022
The Inheritance Games is the first book in a trilogy following Avery Grambs who has inherited a billion dollar fortune of a man she has never even met before. Averys life is turned upside down and inside out from the life she is used to living. After her mother's death, Avery has been living between her car and her sisters apartment due to not getting along with her sisters boyfriend. When she gets told she's needed to attend the reading of the will, her and her sister Libby fly to Texas and its revealed she's now the heiress of a multi billion dollar inheritance. The catch is she's to live in the sprawling mansion for 12 months constantly and must allow the family of the late Tobias Hawthorne to reside there too. The house itself is ginormous with secret passageways, different wings, a bowling alley, theatre, library's etc and Avery can't believe its all been left to her by someone she's never met. The reading of the will leaves her and the four grandsons of Tobias Hawthorne with a letter from Tobias with a cryptic message. Can they solve his final puzzle to them and who can Avery trust? This was such a good read that I bought book two and three to read back to back. This is the oerfect escapism for me right now and Ice enjoyed the puzzles the secrets and especially the house in this book.
