Book Description

Seven Point Eight

The most powerful number in the universe

The number that connects everything.

It is time to wake up....

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 5 part epic which follows the spiritual and emotional journey of five people; their quest to understand the universe and our place within it.

Quantum physics meets spirituality in a tale which begins in the 1940s, unfolds during the 1960s; an era of social and spiritual transformation and reaches its conclusion in the modern age.

It interweaves the human dramas of love, betrayal, bitterness and above all, courage in a world where everyone must face their own dark shadow.

For fans of the paranormal, big sweeping epics, metaphysics, science fiction, Lost,  Fringe, contemporary fantasy, alternate realities and new age/spirituality.

It's also highly suited to Young Adult readers, who like sci-fi along with their paranormal, or those who like a more challenging read.

Content guidance: Suitable for readers aged 15 and over. Sexual scenes are suggestive as opposed to explicit. Some references to psychedelic drugs.

Book Review:

            This book has a lot of technical scientific information combined with mystical ideas.  It is a unique mix of technology and fantasy.  The story is somewhat difficult to follow as it is told from the point of view of different people, but it is not always easy to tell who is talking. 
            I am still unsure of my reaction to this book.  It certainly made me think.  At times I was uncomfortable; and at other times I was profoundly intrigued.  I think this is a book that I will have to re-read to fully process.
            I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
