I am a book lover. One might even say books are my side piece. Which is why, when my friend Beth Teliho announced that her book is up for pre-order, I NEARLY JUMPED OUT OF MY SKIN. Because the only thing better than holding an actual book in hand is knowing I can secure its transit to my hand before it’s even been released.
If you are also a book lover, you will adore Beth’s work. She is an amazing writer with great talent, and the story sounds fascinating. Here’s a sneak peek:
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.
This pretty much sums up all the things that intrigue me about the mind (I was a psychology minor in college for 3.9 seconds before learning I would have to do math and switching over to history. Yes, math scares me that much.) and, as a self-identified empath, I am excited to learn what the main character’s encounter with one is like, not to mention how this leads Devi to discover her mysteriously critical gift.
Even better? I am always looking for contemporary literature to incorporate in my senior English classroom, and this sounds like it would be a perfect fit for literature circles. (I can’t help but always think with my teacher brain when it comes to stuff like this. It’s a blessing and a curse.)
How do you get your copy? Well, you can enter the Goodreads giveaway running through March 23, or you can pre-order your copy from Amazon and be first in line to read her work. You can also get a taste of Beth’s talent by visiting her on her website, on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Goodreads.
I can’t wait to dig into this. Join me! And happy reading!
