When I learned that my dear friend Beth Teliho had a book coming out, I was excited to read it because I've been a huge fan of her writing since I first stumbled across her blog, Writer B is Me, last year. She has written an amazing YA novel, and even though normally I don't read that genre, Beth had me hooked after reading the first page. The book is THAT GOOD. Here's a little background info on the novel, followed by my review:
Eighteen-year-old Devi Bennett is surrounded by mysteries: her unknown heritage, a recurring dream about an African tribal ceremony, an inexplicable attachment to a certain tree and a psychic ability she’ll never understand—unless she finds her biological parents. Things take a shocking turn when she meets Baron, an intense and alluring energy healer who receives prophetic dreams which all seem connected to her. Devi must rely on an empath, a seer, and Baron to help research her roots to discover who she is and what she is capable of. But when Baron’s visions lead to an ancient legend which may link to her birthright, Devi learns her gift is more imperative than she thought imaginable. Equal parts suspenseful and sexy, philosophical and adventurous, Order of Seven delivers a story that will leave you questioning everything you thought you knew about the hands that carry fate.
"Beth Teliho's SEVEN is a compelling YA novel filled with mystery, suspense and intrigue. The distinctive characters she has created in the book are gifted with paranormal abilities that quickly pull the reader deep into her imaginative world during Devi and Baron's unpredictable journey of self-discovery. Beth Teliho provides a detailed history along with rich imagery and a suspenseful plot line that keeps the reader engaged page after page. The sensual tension between between Devi and Baron is palpable and alluring, which adds to the mystique during the journey they share while tracing Devi's heritage. SEVEN is the perfect balance of suspense, romance and adventure. This beautifully written book is a must read for followers of YA novels."
