    Rated 4.5 Stars

    The Orchid Throne is the first in a fantasy trilogy steeped in political intrigue, magic, adventure, action and romance. I thoroughly enjoyed it, the interesting and intriguing world, the characters and plot. I am eagerly anticipating the release of the next book in the series. I highly recommend it.

    Interesting read, interesting world

    It took me a bit to get into this story, but I enjoyed the dynamics between Lia and Conri. Her strength and his determination brought a lot to their relationship. Through Ms. Kennedy's words, I could see the world around them, the good, the bad, the beautiful. This was a good story overall, and I look forward to the next installment. I received an ARC of this story through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

    Fantasy Trilogy book 1

    The Orchid Throne by Jeffe Kennedy Forgotten Empires #1 At first I was bored...but...after awhile I became interested and by the end I was eager to read book two in this trilogy. Why was I bored? I found the introduction long and windy without seeming to tell me anything. A bit like the opening words to a Star Wars movie perhaps but without knowing the plot or players I was lost. I began reading and did not connect with either Lia, Queen of Calanthe or Conri, former crown prince of Oriel. Conri spent most of his time bashing people a bit like a Berzerker and Lia seemed a painted doll living in a gorgeous garden that was there to please her and those living on the island paradise. So...I skimmed and read and then finally I hit the part where Con and Lia meet. She was still cold and calculating and he was a bit of a loose cannon. And I waited and read and wondered. I wondered how the two would eventually be bound together and why and what kind of relationship they could possibly have. And...I think we find that out in book two. Why do I want to read book two if it took so long to actually get to know and care about the characters? I am not sure. I believe it is because the story grew on me and I want to see how the couple will move forward. I want to find out what will happen to Ambrose the wizard and Sondra the warrior. I want to find out if Con and Lia will find common ground other than providing an heir and taking down the tyrant Anure. And I want to find out that there is more to Con than the oafish warrior he seems at first and if there is warmth in the cold painted doll that Lia seems to be. Did I enjoy this book? Eventually Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    Slow start but great story

    This started slow but built into a powerful story. Warning: this is the first in a trilogy. Although it doesn't end on a cliff-hanger, neither does it end on an intermediate resolution. Interesting world and characters.

    Enjoyable, but slow to get going

    I found the first several chapters rather slow going, and just wanted the action to start! Once it did I loved it.
