Genre: Adult Science Fiction
Book Description: What would you do if you held infinite power in the palm of your hand?
Part One of the thrilling Order of the Seers trilogy will take you on a journey 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.

My thoughts: Order of the Seers takes place in a world where seers are hunted and shunned. They are hunted by an organization that has spread incorrect propaganda.
The story begins with Lilli and Liam. Their life is violently ripped from them when the organization comes for Lilli. They are thrown into a truth of terror and running.
The story alternates between members of the organization and seers who escape or are drawn to a remote compound seeking refuge. Their refuge is not complete, as the organization wants the seers to maintain power.
This book is very interesting. Cerece Rennie Murphy has really set up a society in great detail. She does a great job of keeping the voice and setting consistent.
The book has moments of violence and sexual content. There is also frequent use of the 'f' bomb.
