Seven Point Eight Blog Tour: Guest Post with Author Marie Harbon

Be prepared for a journey, an expedition that draws together fringe science, psychic powers, alternate dimensions, time travel, past lives, miracles, folklore, consciousness, conspiracy and nostalgia, in a soap opera for the soul.  Welcome to the new paranormal/science fiction series entitled ‘Seven Point Eight’.

Crossing genres and gender appeal, it blends character driven plot with an intriguing story line, full of geeky science underpinning a thrilling and clever plot.

‘Seven Point Eight is a twist of scifi confusion that asks some interesting questions. If one had special abilities to travel out of body, what would one do with them? What would the government do with it if they could? How far could one go?’
Kindle Book Review

‘every page is chock-a-block full of quantum theory, wildly idiosyncratic characters, out-of-body experiences, weird occurrences, and loose ends, all of which are tied together with a fanciful yet plausible conception of the grand unifying theory underlying the world around us. Oh yeah, and there's some sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll thrown in for kicks’.
Written in the style of a TV series, ‘Seven Point Eight’ interweaves the human dramas of love, betrayal, bitterness and above all, courage in a world where everyone must face their own dark shadow. Plus, it asks some pretty existential questions regarding the meaning of our lives and destiny, our karma and dharma, and last but not least, God and the universe.

This plays out through the lives of five key characters:
·         Tahra – the smart, provocative and psychically talented new recruit.
·         Paul - the boundary-breaking physicist.
·         Max - the enigmatic businessman with military connections.
·         Ava - the intelligent geneticist, bewildered by her surreal experiences.
·         Sam - the bitter artist/musician who, together with Ava, seeks answers to a shrouded past.

‘Seven Point Eight: The First Chronicle’ lays the groundwork, and sweeps through the 40s, 50s and 60s to modern day in a wild nostalgic, scientific, paranormal ride.  The physicist, Paul, begins a quest to measure the soul but soon founds himself swept into Max’s world, where research is sold to the military at the highest bid.  When the talented psychic, Tahra, walks into his life, they soon embark on a ground-breaking project designed to stretch the frontiers of exploration, only to make a reality shattering discovery….

"Captivating and intelligently written - definitely could appeal to fans of Star Trek, Star Wars, Dan Brown books, fans of the Jodie Foster film 'Contact' and anyone who loves X-Men"

  1. Wonderful review! My post for Seven Point Eight is going up tomorrow, so I'm happy to see how someone else reviewed it. :)

  2. I'm not sure how I feel about this book. It's a little off putting. I like sci-fi and I like paranormal things, but I'm worried if the book may be trying to do too much? I will give it a try, maybe, I did like the movie, Contact even if the movie was a bit long, I love X Men, and I enjoy sci-fi. I'm just not sure about this. I may read some opinions before I buy or read.
