The Final Gambit
The Final Gambit | Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Don't miss the thrilling and unmissable conclusion to the international bestselling, 'impossible to put down' (Buzzfeed), BookTok sensation, Inheritance Games trilogy - where Knives Out meets One of Us is Lying. 'Barnes is a master of puzzles and plot twists.' E. Lockhart, bestselling author of We Were Liars Avery's fortune, life, and loves are on the line in the game that everyone will be talking about. To inherit billions, all Avery Kylie Grambs has to do is survive a few more weeks living in Hawthorne House. The paparazzi are dogging her every step. Financial pressures are building. Danger is a fact of life. And the only thing getting Avery through it all is the Hawthorne brothers. Her life is intertwined with theirs. She knows their secrets, and they know her. But as the clock ticks down to the moment when Avery will become the richest teenager on the planet, trouble arrives in the form of a visitor who needs her help-and whose presence in Hawthorne House could change everything. It soon becomes clear that there is one last puzzle to solve, and Avery and the Hawthorne brothers are drawn into a dangerous game against an unknown and powerful player. Secrets upon secrets. Riddles upon riddles. In this game, there are hearts and lives at stake-and there is nothing more Hawthorne than winning.

I love this series! Barnes does an amazing job of summarizing the past books enough so I don‘t feel lost reading it after a year long gap. I already preordered the next one today. The only thing I didn‘t like was that romance between Nash and Libby. The age gap was gross and weird, but I loved everything else! 5🌟

Also, I would totally reread this series from Xander‘s perspective:

As usual, the games/riddles/puzzles driving the story were fun and outrageous. My goal wasn't deciding if I was on Team Grayson or Team Jameson (neither) as it was just getting closure in this series; Barnes left some loose ends, probably for the next book to solve. I was hoping for more character-driven moments but in the end it felt like a hollow conclusion to the first book in this series.

I can't say if I liked some character more than another because they all felt somehow so flat. There also were a way too many of them.

This wasn't really thrilling nor intriguing, more like boring and confusing. But the setting was awesome and I think I have liked it most in this series.

The ending was good and gave a really satisfying closure.

My daughter tells me this YA series is very popular on BookTok & I totally get it. Girl inherits billions from a man she‘s never met & has to live in the family mansion with the man‘s disgruntled family—including his 4 grandsons (3 of whom are around her age)—to get it…& the games begin. It‘s every bit as fun & over the top as the premise sounds with plenty of games & riddles & twists & turns to keep you guessing until the end. Super fun story.

This book was a big mixed bag. I felt like I was sort of rereading the previous two books, but I did love parts of the Eve storyline, the Queen's Gambit storyline, and the ending. But like I said it was SOO similar to the previous books, it felt a bit like lazy writing. I so wanted to love this book, but it was just good, not great. It was so like the others I had to double check I hadn't read it before, which I definitely didn't!

3½⭐ Pick-ish
JLB writes these stories with such intricate plots…and while I don‘t always care for characters or their actions necessarily, I do like her ingenious plots. Although, this third book in the series took the games/riddles to a whole new level. So much so, that I may have lost my way a little. All in all, this was a proper end to the series. If you loved the first two books in the series, then you should love this one too.

My sister recently got hooked on this series and, as someone who often struggles with trilogies, I was happy to be able to report that the end was satisfying. The love triangle was eye roll inducing but the puzzles and mysteries were still fresh and fun.

Sometimes I think series just aren‘t for me. They tend to drag on too long and I‘m always disappointed by the last book.

I think this series would have been better as a dulogy or a standalone. And it didn‘t need the love triangle, or the many times the main character thought of her love interests using their full names. But it did break me out of a slump and I finished a series.

A solid end to a fun YA mystery adventure. Though is definitely YA (down to some very standard YA tropes ugh love triangle), the mystery and puzzles are a lot of fun. These are not standalones, you definitely have to read in order, but the journey is fun and they are quick reads. 4⭐️

Just as fast paced, tightly plotted, and intriguing as the first two, Avery and the Hawthornes continue to crack the codes in this high risk and high stake thriller! The perfect conclusion to an awesome, smart trilogy! It's unfortunate that it had to end, but at least the end is satisfying!

Read4life I agree 💯. Loved this trilogy so much. My daughter and I read it together. 4mo
BookDragonNotWorm @Read4life Everything I've read by her has been SO good! Have you read her The Naturals series? If not, you and your daughter might like it. 4mo
Read4life I agree. Yes, we‘ve read the Natural series and The Fixer books. All great! 4mo

This was a satisfying end to an entertaining trilogy. I love every Hawthorne brother, and Avery fits right in to their quirky, eccentric family. Forget about the billions of dollars; I think the brothers are the real inheritance! Like the previous two books, this one is a mix of mystery, thriller, and comedy. Max, Libby, Rebecca and Thea balance out the guys. I loved every second of it and almost wish it read slower, but it is fast and fun!
