Behind a Mask and Other Thrillers. A Modern Mephistopheles. Rose in Bloom,. Add to Bag. Was it when they moved to the same neighborhood? When their children, Kate and Peter, became friends? Or was it what came after, when a devastating incident of violence forces the two families apart and only the next generation can start to heal the wounds that came before? A triumphant novel about how individual people often are lost in the claustrophobia of family, and how the mistakes of the past can either condemn or liberate the next generation.
The Immortalists, by Chloe Benjamin When they were children, the Golds visited a psychic who claimed she could pinpoint the day they would die. After hearing the prophecies of their eventual demises, each of the children responds in differing extremes: Simon comes out as gay and finds love in San Francisco; Klara finds solace in magic and a family; Daniel joins the military; and Varya becomes a scientist determined to outsmart time itself.
The novel follows each child on their journey, wrestling with whether the fate they were given is one they deserve, one that was destined, or one they should have attempted to escape. Pre-Order: Add to Bag. Flowers in the Attic, by VC Andrews After a terrible tragedy, four children are locked in an attic, presumably for their own protection—and that of their inheritance. Money, secrets, scandal and romance combine in this classic start to the Dollanganger series. Ross Poldark , by Winston Graham Ok, fans of another TV show should be familiar with this one, but there are so many similar elements to Succession in Poldark that I had to include it!
Money is largely the enemy, because it is what enables the Warleggans, the primary villains, to enact their spite and hatred on the Poldark family. Lush descriptions infused with magical realism makes this one an intimidating selection for high schoolers which is when I read it the first time , but it deserves returning to again and again. The story begins, and is punctuated throughout, with violence: a man and his wife flee their home after a murder, and everything that happens after seems rooted in the haunting lack of justice for that original sin.

It is less of a sweeping an epic and more of an intimate drama, where every single line of dialogue and observation serves a purpose, leading to a fitting ending. I love how this story directly confronts not only how a single action can reverberate through the ages, but how a story itself can do the same. The Leavers , by Lisa Ko Another inter-generational story where a single action has a lifetime of consequences, this time about a Chinese American boy and his mother, Polly, who suddenly vanishes without a trace.
Deming is only eleven when this happens, and he spends the rest of his childhood and early adulthood in a state of looming and receding turmoil. The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood , by Rebecca Wells Succession is about the legacy of a domineering, abusive father on his two sons and daughter—but mothers leave an indelible imprint on their children as well, a dynamic explored in this by-now classic story of friendship, family, and how the fractures in those relationships can alter the future.
Leo Plumb was just released from rehab after a devastating tragedy when, under the influence, he caused an accident with an innocent passenger. Set in Chicago and its suburbs, this uniquely American saga spans almost fifty years and culminates when a long-buried secret shows up to unsettle their already trembling definition of family. Martin How could I not include the ultimate family succession drama on this list? Even if you take away the dragons and the blood magic though why would you want to?
Game of Thrones is about feuding families, plain and simple. Combine torrid love affairs, secret alliances, hidden heirs and surprise deaths, and the saga of Starks, Lannisters, Baratheons, and Targaryens could look like something ripped from the headlines. Queens of Innis Lear, by Tessa Gratton A fantasy inspired by King Lear puts his daughters center stage: the ruthless and strong Gaela, seductress and political manipulator Regan, and the sweet priestess Elia.
