3.5/5

As far as YA fantasy novels go, this is pretty great. Bisexual heroines ftw forever, obviously.

4.5 but heartily and happily rounding up! "The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina" is a deeply unique story that very truly has no equal. Córdova tells a magical, multigenerational tale that just begs the reader to keep going deeper into the strangeness and wonder of the Montoya family. I read this over a couple weeks to savor it, but part of me just wanted to rush through the whole thing to find out what was happening!

The biggest weakness is that the climax/final explanations happen very very quickly and at the 11th hour, however that doesn't take away from the beauty of the rest of the book. Lastly, there is a HUGE sort of infodump near the beginning where the reader is introduced to the extended family very quickly and it's admittedly a bit overwhelming. I would say just check the family tree at the start of the book if you're not sure who is who at first, but honestly (like with any other large cast book) it gets easier as the book progresses.

If you're a fan of magic realism, multiple POVs, family stories, and a tad of otherworldliness, this should be your next read!

Too many characters, I just wanted a story not eight different stories. Maybe another time I could read this.

The book started strong, and I liked Orquidea's character, particularly in the flashbacks. It felt like it started to lose cohesion in its world and story, particularly the last 3rd. SciFi elements?
