About the Author

Born and raised in Rockledge, Florida, Jennings spent her early years reading anything she could get her hands on, when she wasn't spending time in and on the water. She won a prize in the 6th grade for her writing. Jennings attended the University of Tampa, graduating with a B.A. in Political Science, and almost enough credits for B.A.s in both English and History. She spent time over the years doing various kinds of script doctoring, business writing, editing, and teaching writing, but mostly having and raising her family, homeschooling her children, owning and running a business with her husband, and starting a non-profit to Uganda. Thanks to a crazy idea called NaNoWriMo, Jennings got back into creative writing in 2011 and hasn't stopped since. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband, a political writer, and two children, and travels extensively.

This was a free download for me and I found it an easy, enjoyable read. The standard 'follow the clues' treasure hunt plot was improved by interesting main characters.

I would probably tag this as a 'cozy' action/adventure novel as the storyline is all about the origin of the clues to find the treasure or the 'follow the clues' instituted by the modern day couple. A bit more travelogue than action. A combination of 'backstory' about the original artifacts and the person who is the foundation of the treasure clues and the couple who undertake to track down the clues and find the treasure keeps this from being dull.

Overall, entertaining but rather leisurely.

This is a great book for people who are into adventure. As well, it offered a great escape into places many of us would never dream of being able to go. The writer transports the reader to these places and offers a flavor of each culture. While I normally do not like books which go back and forth in time, this approach made perfect sense for this type of story. I can see how this could be made into a screenplay with added challenges and surprises. All in all, a good read.

Being a minister this book was very interesting to me. But be it as it may the book was an engrossing book that keeps you on the edge all the way thru.

Author Jennings Wright has wrote an out standing book here within the pages of SOLOMON'S THRONE. The synopsis above says it better than any other words. Except I will add the characters are awesome, the writing style is action packed, loaded with suspense, clean reading, and "a treasure hunt" that makes you keep reading till the very last word. And then you want to scream for more.

I absolutely loved this book and the details that author Jennings Wright put into it. I felt as if I was on the hunt for the mystery of the journal and along with Rei and Gideon, had to make sure that every thing that could be was uncovered.

As you all must know by now though is I try not to give any thing away with my reviews. I mostly try to just keep it to where either I let you know how much I like the book. Well make sure to put SOLOMON'S THRONE on your 2013 book list as a Must Read!

So due to the above, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of:

Five Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: I did receive this book for my honest opinion and review. But the opinions are my own and yours may differ.

I really enjoyed Solomon's Throne, written by one of my high school classmates! Not only are readers treated to a treasure hunt, we are also the beneficiaries of thorough research about life in, for us, ancient times. The writer has written a story for all audiences to enjoy. As the characters were embarking on a journey for treasure, so was I, as thrilled as they were with each success along their journey. I enjoyed the characters of Rei, Gideon, and Mac, and hope to see them in future endeavors!

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.

Hidden coded letters to a possible offspring sometime in the future ? Really ?
This book had two stories going at the same time. Information that could topple the Roman Catholic church as it is today but at the same time it becomes a treasure hunt.
The bad guys aren't really that bad after all cause they're just trying to save the church with blind allegiance to their order. No one ever questioned their reason for being. Really ?
The hero's find ways to outwit the bad guys and travel all over East Africa and Iraq searching for clues and digging up historic sites and no one ever sees them doing it. Must be lucky I guess.
Then there's the treasure. No rhyme or reason why it's found where it is and how did it get there. A brief off hand remark about perhaps another point of egress existed at some time on the past. Really ?
I think that the author had a good idea and just did not know how to flesh it out very well.
The book had a lot of typos too. Someone needed to do a good proof read before making it available.
