A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Some chess puzzle-solving strategies.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Final Gambit is the final installment in the popular Inheritance Games series about a high-schooler who inherits unimaginable wealth from someone she's never heard of. The story picks up soon after the events of the previous book. The main plot involves a kidnapping, but the only violence directly narrated are a few scuffles, threats with a gun, and mention of bruises and blood. One character saves a puppy from being poked with a stick by a group of drunk people. Strong language includes "bulls--t" and "asshole." A few kisses aren't described in detail, but it's implied that several couples have sex. There are a couple of mentions of champagne and past drinking.
Is It Any Good?
This final installment in the mystery series keeps the puzzles and intrigue coming along with a compelling mystery to keep the pages turning. The Final Gambit is as full of twists and turns as the first two books. Romance continues adding to the suspense, too. Readers will enjoy immersing themselves in the world of the immensely rich as much as in the mystery and intrigue, and they can admire the way Avery uses her new-found resources to help others. Favorite characters return, and colorful, well-realized new ones are introduced, too. Plus, a puppy! The ending's satisfying, but leaves room for fans to imagine further adventures for themselves.
