It’s not every day that something happens for the FIRST TIME EVER on my blog, but today is different.
Since I can’t give her to you, I’m giving you the next best thing. My treat for you today is as close to that as I can get.
We had a conversation. It took lots of convincing. When I said to her, “Beth, the magic happens outside of your comfort zone,” she finally agreed.
For the first time, you get to hear her and see her, and she’s reading an excerpt from her book. To you.
Listen, ingest the words. Like little blue pills, they will affect you.
Meet, the one and only (drum roll) Beth Teliho.
Applause. Applause. Applause.
If you still need more convincing, don’t take Beth’s word for it, take mine. Here’s my review of The Order of Seven:
Rich in description, this book takes your imagination on a sensual journey allowing you to see, taste, hear, and feel the plot. It’s hard to believe this is Beth Teliho’s FIRST novel. When I came to the line in the introduction: “But there’s another reason we want to explore our roots: our paranormal abilities,” I was hooked. I sat leaning over my kindle devouring each enticing word from this talented new writer. Normally a book with such detail would become mundane and boring, but the writing drew me in and didn’t let me stop until the very last word, and when I read that word, I sighed because I didn’t want it to end.
She gave me history, archaeology, fantasy, romance, suspense, and wonder all wrapped in a beautifully told story that spans across Texas, Oklahoma, Peru, and Africa (with sprinkles of other cultures as well). The intense research that must have gone into this novel along with the real and believable characters kept me hungry for more, and the ending…well, no spoilers.
Devi is a strong lead female character who’s still strikingly delicate. Sometimes she is angry and hostile but other times, she shows such endearing empathy. I liked her because she is real and natural, and I found myself cheering in her corner more than once. Plus, she has a little feisty in her. Who doesn’t love a girl who says what she thinks sometimes?
Then there’s Baron, just another book boyfriend to add to my list. Tall, dark, handsome…and not at all in the cliche way. He’s kind and warm but bold and sexy, with tattoos and a beard. Hold on while I wipe up my drool. Oh, and he’s basically a superhero…no big deal.
The remaining characters are alive and believable and come to life on the page. As I escaped into this luscious story, I felt like I was one of them.
If it were possible, I would rate this SEVEN GIANT STARS, a great read that spans across multiple genres. One click this. You won’t be disappointed
So….Are you as pissed at Beth as I am that she looks eighteen? Have you bought the book yet? What are you waiting for? Go. Buy it now!!! And read it, and come tell me how much you love it, too!
