I love Young Adult books. There is something about how quickly it gets in to the story, and how emotionally invested the characters are, that grabs me.
Order of Seven by Beth Teliho is no exception.
I cracked this book open (ok turned on my Kindle) about 9pm on a Tuesday night. At 2am I was still wide awake, and still reading.
From the first word, I was sucked into the dream of Devi, she and her brother Nodin are the center of what became the story that sucked me in and haunted my days.
Beth wastes no time getting into the story, she weaves the history of this brother and sister into the present day story, seamlessly. By the time you reach Chapter 2 you feel like you know Devi and Nodin, but it is only the beginning, and you have no idea what’s coming!
It is so hard to tell you why this story is so gripping without giving it all away…what can I say….okay, you learn right away that Nodin has paranormal abilities and was sent to a special center to learn how to deal with his intuitive gift of empathy.
You also learn that he has two very good friends he met there that are coming to visit for a very special reason….
And then there’s the tree. Devi has a tree that she is so connected to, it calls her. But what happens when she goes to her tree is beyond understanding.
Can you just trust me and read this book? The story unfolds into an amazing tale that is so unpredictable it feels wrong to share anymore of it with you here.
Go buy it on Amazon, because you need to read this book. Calling it a page-turner is an understatement. It is a keep you up all night, make you think about it for days after you finish, gripping, completely unique, imaginative tale.
Order of Seven is available at Amazon in paperback or on Kindle, go get it.
