Publisher's Summary

Lorelli and Ovid Thornthwaite are not like most 13-year-old children. They live in a huge and creepy mansion; they don't go to school and are heirs to a vast fortune. But what makes the twins even more unusual is their determination to kill each other!
When their murderous sibling rivalry is called off it soon becomes clear that one of them can't stop trying to kill the other. But who is really causing the trouble and will they both survive to find out where the real danger lies?


What the Critics Say

"Blackly cosmic ...all the fun of taking sibling rivalry to a fantastical extreme." (TimesOnline)
"Unputdownable story with a cracking mixture of humour, menace and adventure." (Primary Times)

Gareth p. jones review (thhownthwaite inheritance)

Where does The Thornthwaite Inheritance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the first book on audible i've listened to, its fabulous. I extremely recommend this to readers and listeners.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lorelli is my favorite character because she has a cunning personality and i adore her features especially her jet black hair and emerald green eyes.

What does Karen Cass bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She brings expression and a different tone of voice to each and every character. I wouldnt change my tone of voice since i normally read inside my head and when i read out loud I dont use different tones of voice, most characters have the same tone.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

twins that kill!

I just loved it, if you haven't already read this book then you need to. The characters are so realistic and lovable that you get sucked into the story and want to become a part of it and solve the mystery of the thornwaite inheritance. The narrator was fine, she told the story well. When you listen to this you will feel like the story has come alive. Definitely recommend to all who love a good puzzle.
