Beth Teliho’s Order of Seven is a paranormal mystery for young adults. Devi Bennett is an eighteen-year-old, highly strung girl who yearns to know who her birth parents are. She and her albino brother, Nodin, know they are different from most people and possess special powers. Devi has constant dreams of African tribal ceremonies that she feels are connected to her, and gets energy and visions from a special tree. When Nodin’s friends, Ben and Baron, visit, the four realize how different their powers are and wonder why they are being brought together by an unknown entity. Devi is warned not to stay close to Baron because their combined powers can be harmful, while a stranger attempts to unblock her thoughts.
Order of Seven is a thrilling story that brings together a group of young people who have special paranormal gifts that bond them together. It is very suspenseful, has a continuous flow of engaging banter, especially from Devi who has a sharp tongue, and is an exciting adventure steeped in spirituality with a bit of romance. Beth Teliho writes in a skillful manner, developing a wonderful story that includes a set of diverse characters with distinctive traits. Order of Seven is a bit more creative than a few paranormal stories that I have read and I liked it a lot. It also has a nice ending that suggests there could be another adventure for the group. Young adults will find Beth Teliho’s book interesting and it is highly recommended.
