Out of Body to Out of Universe

Seven Point Eight is a twist of sci-fi confusion that asks some interesting questions. If you had special abilities to travel out of body, what would you do with them? Where would you go? What would secret agencies do with these abilities? And how far could you go?

A physicist begins a quest to measure the soul but soon finds himself drawn into the world of the enigmatic Max Richardson, where research is sold to the military at the highest bid. However, he soon discovers another purpose when an extremely talented young psychic enters his life. He devises a project and builds a team to stretch the frontiers of exploration, only to make a reality-shattering discovery...

Written in the style of a TV series, The First Chronicle is the beginning of a five part epic which follows the quest of five people: to understand the universe and our place within it. This sci-fi/paranormal drama interweaves the human dramas of love, betrayal, bitterness and above all, courage in a world where everyone must face their own dark shadow. The tale begins in the 1940s, unfolds during the 1960s and reaches its conclusion in the modern age. (Goodreads)

~Why I'm Crushing~

I actually first laid eyes on this cover right here on the Masq Crew site. I think it's great. It's futuristic, intricate, and downright beautiful. I chose it for my crush this week the second I saw it. Sci-fi is definitely not a genre that I normally read, but this cover makes me want to give the genre another go, that's for sure.

What do you think?
