    3.5 stars would probably be more accurate, but I don't know how

    3.5 stars would probably be more accurate, but I don't know how to do half stars. Solomon's Throne is the story of an ancient letter and treasure hidden and kept secret down through the generations, from the beginnings of the Catholic Church to the present day. After the letter and a journal containing clues as to the whereabouts of King Solomon's throne are stolen, Rei and Gideon Quinn are hired to recover the artifacts and locate the throne. The couple must follow clues left by a long dead Jesuit priest while avoiding monks who are tracking them in an attempt to keep the church's secret and recover the stolen letter as well.
    All in all a pretty good plot and characters. I did find the suspense was a little lacking and I was unclear as to how the monks kept finding the Quinns across various continents. It was a fun read, and quick, but I felt there could have been more detail and build-up to the final resolution. I think this would be a good book for an early teen reader as there is no sex and very little violence.

    This book was a bit like a married Indiana Jones minus the snake

    This book was a bit like a married Indiana Jones minus the snakes, booby traps, and melting people.

    Action and adventure. Exotic locations and historical facts. Chases and mysterious clues. And some very strange dudes dressed in black. What more could you ask for?

    This book features some historical tidbits from little known locations. I had never heard of the Portuguese Spice Route or the Stone Houses before. The locations and history mentioned are sending me on a search for more information, I'd really like to learn more about these fascinating places.

    This will sound a bit strange, but the thing I liked best about Solomon's Throne was the author's writing style. She wrote more like a man, much like the famous Montana author Dorothy M. Johnson. Some women can't write action/adventure and some can and Jennings Wright is a woman who can.

    Solomon's Throne was a very enjoyable adventure and I am looking forward to reading the next book.

    Note: This book did have some language issues in a few spots.

    An entertaining adventure

    I enjoyed this book, the character relationships, and the exoctic settings where the story took place. But most of all I enjoyed the mystery, courage and adventure that Jennings portrayed through the pages. Solomons Throne has what it takes to be a good mystery. Don't miss it!
    Now, on to its sequel.

    Adventure

    Very much like the Indiana Jones series. More oriented to young readers. Would make for good movie.

    Silly ending

    The first half was very interesting. The second half became ludicrous and impractical, with an ending that was pie in the sky fairy tale "and they all lived happy in the everafter even though they took none of the treasure for themselves and the bad guys decided to become good guys...the end."
