Seven Point Eight: The First Chronicle kick starts a five part series offering a twist of sci-fi intrigue, which poses some interesting questions. If you had special abilities to travel out of body, where would you go? What would secret organisations 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, Seven Point Eight draws together quantum physics, psychic powers, alternate dimensions, time travel, past lives, ancient wisdom, drama, romance, and conspiracy in a soap opera for the soul.

It's the ideal read for lovers of science fiction, fantasy, the paranormal, big sweeping epics, metaphysics, 'Lost', 'Fringe', 'Touch' and Dan Brown books.

Praise for Seven Point Eight

The story is richly textured in its prose, and detailed in its explanations. The voice of the author comes across clearly in this well-written novel. Those who are interested or simply curious about astral projection, psychic abilities, and the advancement of science MUST READ this novel.

This book doesn't disappoint. There are plenty of elements in writing style to keep you asking questions. This is the kind of writing like. There are elements of spiritual, dimensional, and sci-fi to keep me interested. The characters are flawed and well developed.

If I were to liken this to experiences I am familiar with, I would deem it a mixture of Fringe meets Star Trek with a hint of Dr. Who.

This is a fabulous science fiction story! I struggled to put it down! I'm interested in science, and in all the big questions that everyone has asked for millennia. Are we alone, or is there life on other planets? Are there other dimensions? What are the other planets in the universe like? Do we have a soul? If we do, what happens to it when we die?

This book attempts to answer some, if not all these questions and more. Although it is a work of science fiction, there is a lot of science fact written into this most interesting story. The subjects mentioned in the book seem to have been thoroughly researched by the author, and can be a bit technical for the layman, but gives the story an authentic and original feel.

This book is Sci-fi meets Fantasy in this bar one night, got a little drunk and boom! nine months later....

The story starts of very much in the science part and stays there most of the way. The author cleverly includes fantasy into the narrative, giving things rooted in superstition some very "logical" explanation. I loved the way the story is told at different times, in a sort of parallel way. I never got tired, it kept me wanting ot go further each step.
