Note: I received an eARC copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I was not paid to write this.
Inherit Midnight by Kate Kae Myers was quite the adventure. It was an Amazing Race like competition, but Avery’s competitors were her family members and the prize was the ultimate inheritance. Oh and of course a ticket out of a horrible boarding school. It was a story about discovering who you are as an individual and that you’re not always defined by your family members or other’s thoughts of you.
The beginning was a bit slow to be honest. Once the competition started rolling, however, I found that things got interesting fast. Avery grew on me, and I felt for her. She was the unwanted, illegitimate child that everyone openly hated. If there’s one thing that irks me, it’s definitely when a family treats someone wrong for no reason. It definitely fueled my desire for Avery to one up them all and win the competition.
Riley was a nice addition to the story. I think it was nice that Avery had someone on her side. I also thought the romance was really sweet between the two. Their romance was probably a bit rushed, but it really wasn’t a major part of the story per say. So it didn’t bother me.
The competition of itself was really interesting. Avery’s family had quite the complex history. All I know about mine is that I come from a family of rice farmers. I think it would have been interesting to go on the type of adventure that Avery had, even simply for the historical reasons. Regardless of what you think about your family, it’s nice to know where you come from. There was also a lot of unexpected twists. Kate Kae Myers definitely kept me on my toes.
I’d highly recommend giving Inherit Midnight by Kate Kae Myers a try. I adored watching Avery grow out of the shadow of just the unwanted, illegitimate family member. All in all, it was quite the exciting story mixed with adventure, mystery, and even a bit of history. Inherit Midnight is definitely one of my favorite YA reads thus far. Try it and go on an adventure!
