A Dark Inheritance
H. F. Askwith
The Great Gatsby meets The Inheritance Games in this gloriously twisty thriller, perfect for fans of #DarkAcademia and Leigh Bardugo’s Ninth House
Once I had four brothers. Three of them are dead. I am next.
Felix Ashe is sure of only one thing. In thirty days, on his eighteenth birthday, he will die. He might be the only one convinced of this, but the gruesome deaths of his three brothers before him seem to point to only one thing: a curse, one doomed to stop anyone inheriting his family’s incredible fortune.
Felix doesn’t care about money, or himself, particularly. It’s hard to have a stake in the future when you know you haven’t got one. But he does care about his little brother Nick, very much. And when an opportunity to break the curse appears to present itself, it’s impossible not to heed its dark call.
Soon long-buried secrets will take Felix to the darkest underbelly of Jazz-Age New York, to the far-flung wilds of the Yorkshire moors and back again. And bound to everything is a deadly secret society who will either be Felix’s downfall . . . or his one chance at redemption.
