The Inheritance Games: #bookreview

The Inheritance Games

Imagine being relatively poor and struggling to get ahead in life and in the next breath you’ve inherited a sizeable fortune from the Rockefeller family.

One day Avery Grambs was living with her sister, Libby, and the sister’s abusive boyfriend, Drake. Then practically the next day, Avery has inherited a palatial estate and the fortune of Tobias Hawthorne, who is a stranger to her. The only stipulation is that she has to live in the mansion for one year. Of course, Avery will be sharing the house with all of the people that did not get what the fortune that they wanted. All of them are the enemy for the next year.

Avery is very bright but unaccustomed to having wealth or the whole world following her every move. She doesn’t have that many people in her life that are trustworthy.

The most interesting character, Emily, is already deceased by the time Avery moves to the Hawthorne estate. She was dating two of the Hawthorne grandsons and was a bit of a risk-taker. We don’t know if Emily was killed or died of natural causes until the end.

Avery spends a lot of time trying to figure out the mysteries of Hawthorne House. How does Tobias Hawthorne know her? Why did he leave her an interitance?

I thought that this book would be predictable. However, there’s enough mystery and a puzzle around every corner to keep it interesting.

If you like mystery, drama, and puzzles then you will probably enjoy The Inheritance Games.

If you would rather read a boring book about boring people, then this might not be the book for you.

Venators: #bookreview

Venators: Magic Unleashed on Amazon

Most of Venators by Devri walls is set in an alternate dimension called Eon. Every supernatural being that you can think of exists in Eon.

Rune, her brother, Ryker, and classmate, Grey, begin their day on Earth as usual. Rune and Grey are saved from supernatural hunters by Tate, who takes them to Eon through a portal.

Some would say that Grey is obsessed with the supernatural. He’s a bit of an outcast on Earth. Ryker has made life even more difficult for Grey but by the end of the book, his reason will make a little more sense.

Rune is usually the mediator between Ryker and Grey. She also has an interest in the supernatural but she keeps it a closely guarded secret.

Tate tells Rune and Grey that they are Venators, which are sentries between Eon and Earth. There’s more to being a Venator than being a gatekeeper.

If you are interested in the supernatural and alternate dimensions, then this could be the book for you. Personally, Venators has been my favorite book so far this year. I would go through the portal to Eon if it was possible.

If you are firm non-believer of vampires, werewolves or shapeshifters, then this book might not be what you’re looking for yet. I would recommend giving the book a chance even if you are not a fan of the supernatural.
