Overview

What would you do if you held infinite power in the palm of your hand? Order of the Seers poses this question within a story that fuses action, mystery, romance, and adventure in a science fiction novel that keeps you at the edge of your seat.

Order of the Seers begins with the journey of Liam and Lilith Knight, a brother and sister who are hunted by The Guild, a ruthless world organization that seeks to capture and exploit Lilith's unique ability as a Seer to envision the future. Soon after they are forced to leave their home, Lilith and Liam discover that she is not alone. Other Seers like Lilith are routinely kidnapped and enslaved by the Guild for the purpose of consolidating wealth and power around the world.

But from within the organization, Marcus Akida, a captured Seer with powerful visioning capabilities, quietly plots his daring escape with the help of a beautiful and tortured Seer named Alessandra. When the escaped Seers are drawn to the same remote commune in Iowa as Liam and Lilith, they each find a place where they can rebuild their lives and rediscover their passion for life and love. As the Guild's efforts to find them intensifies, the Seers ban together with outlaws from the commune to fight back against the organization that threatens their lives - setting off a chain of events that will unleash the full power of the Seers and change everything we know about the true potential that lies dormant in each of us.

I was asked to read and review Order of the Seers and chose to upgrade to audiobook. For some reason, I had it in my head that this was a young adult book; most likely my interpretation of the cover. It’s not. Some of the characters may start off young, but due to their tragic circumstances, they grow up fast. They story spans over several years, following the lives of several characters. The story is extremely well developed, and has vivid descriptions. I was never lost through the frenetic plot, and was hungry for what came next. All of the characters were well developed, especially the main players, and it’s incredibly easy to get caught up in the story of worldwide domination of Seers, in order to further all worldwide Government’s goals, without a care for the people they hurt and destroy. Order of the Seers is the ultimate David and Goliath story. Yet this time, David packs more of a punch than just a rock. It was extremely enjoyable and I look forward to book two, Order of the Seers: The Red Order. I just hope it comes in audio. I really enjoyed listening to the first one! My only criticism on the audiobook would be the pausing. It was in middle of sentences and disrupted the flow and pace of the story...Sara

Liam and Lilith Knight, are brother and sister who are hunted by The Guild. They are an organization that wants to capture and exploit Lilith s ability as a Seer. She is not the first. They have been kidnapping  other seer's and using them to build their organization.  Inside the organization though there is a powerful seer named Marcus Akida. With the help of Alessandra they are able to escape and are drawn to a commune Iowa where the siblings are. As the Guild gets closer to finding them, the seers and the other outcasts work together to fight back. It was an easy read. It was so quick moving that it was done before I knew what was going on. I loved it! I cant wait for more.

We begin this story with Liam and Lilli Knight living a relatively normal life with their mother but during a trip to a local Fair things start to change. After the death of their mother, Liam and Lilli are on the run from The Guild who want to use Lilli's gift for their own gain and they will destroy anyone who gets in their way. Lilli is a seer, her ability to see the future is both a help and a hindrance in their hiding. Circumstances bring them to a small remote commune where they begin to relax. Lilli isn't alone in her gift, many seers exist although most are hunted and captured by The Guild. The Guild has convinced the general public that they are the good guys but they actively hunt and kill Seers families to bring them under their thumb where they are kept isolated and drugged in order to perform the duties asked of them. All is not well inside The Guild an some Seers are beginning to test the strength of their bonds and defy their captors. When a small group manage to escape and join forces with Lilli and Liam well hidden secrets start to come to light and bonds of family and friendship are tested to the extreme. I found Order of the Seers to be an engaging read, the characters displayed unique attributes and gifts and I am curious as to how the story will develop. The second half of the book was a faster read as the action really heated up and the pace quickened. I'm looking forward to reading the next one!

REVIEW:  ORDER OF THE SEERS is the first storyline in Cerece Rennie Murphy’s new series of the same name.  Written in a mixture of several different genres including sci-fi and urban fantasy, Order of the Seers follows the life and struggle of Liam and Lilli Knight-a brother and sister duo who have seen too much pain and sorrow in their lifetimes.   With Lilli’s Seer abilities, Liam and his sister are on the run for years following the murder of their father and the sacrificial death of their mother.  Finding a commune who was willing to take them in, Lilli and Liam learn what it is to belong to a group but still managing to keep their secrets to themselves until the day another group of Seers, with the tell-tale signs of torture and drug induced control side-effects walk into the commune and announce to everyone the hell they have had to endure at the hands of Guild.   The reader is taken on a journey of self-discovery as Liam and his sister Lilli learn to love-not just each other.  With their powers and abilities, the new Seers integrate the others in their efforts to rescue those in direct conflict with the Guild, and along the way their will learn to combine their collective Seer abilities for power beyond what anyone had ever suspected. There will be losses of friends and family, as well as the realization that one can never go home again.  We watch as a young teen grows into a man who believes his heart had been hardened by too many deaths and yet is capable of loving the woman who has seen their future many times in her dreams.  And we will mourn with a compound when three of their own sacrifice their lives to save the others. Order of the Seer is an interesting tale of discrimination, love, retribution and the madness of power and greed.  As the introductory storyline there is plenty of detail and background information, but I did not feel overwhelmed-there was just the right amount of detail.   The storyline is definitely not written for young adults, but perhaps under the latest ‘new adult’ category.  The reasons I hesitate is that much of the storyline focuses on the teen years as Lilli and Liam struggle to survive.   There are sexual encounters we are witness to that cannot be considered YA suitable as well as the mindset of an adult male wanting the younger girls and boys for himself.  Although there is no erotic or graphic description, there is definitely sex to be had and a love story that will break your heart.    I had a few issues of clarity or continuity.  Perhaps it was the text version I was reading, but in several spots there were no scene breaks-we would read about the happenings in the compound and in the next paragraph we were watching as the Guild members considered their next options.  It was confusing at times as I had to go back to ensure that I hadn’t missed anything.   If you are a fan of Susan Kaye Quinn’s MINDJACK Trilogy, Order of the Seer is very familiar.  Many of the storyline premises is reminiscent of Susan’s series, but with an adult content. see all of my reviews at : thereadingcafe(dot)com

I am a long time fantasy, sci fi reader. Anne Rice, Stephen King etc. the Order of the Seers was a well written story that caught my attention and held it. The characters were very well developed and their special gifts described in a way that made them acceptable not outrageous. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and bonded with the characters. I am looking forward to Cerece Murphy's next book.

Order of the Seers is an amazing read that will captivate readers from the first page. The story is well written and well thought out and the attention to detail is what makes this a 5 star book. Cerece Rennie Murphy has created a world filled with amazing characters who you will want to cheer for and a villain so evil he rivals some of the vilest characters ever written in literature. I cannot wait for the next installment to come out and I know this is a book I will read again.
