    Seven Point Eight: The Second Chronicle by Marie Harbon is the s

    Seven Point Eight: The Second Chronicle by Marie Harbon is the second installment in the Seven Point Eight series. Although this book can be read as a stand-alone because the first few chapters allude to the first novel, readers may be less confused about what they are getting into if they start with The First Chronicle.

    The story is about three main characters—Paul, Max, and Tahra—who have begun a project in 1967 having to do with astral projection and other dimensions. Each person has his or her own agenda, some good, others not as noble. This installment begins after the seeming failure of the project, as twelve psychics’ souls are trapped in a multitude of different worlds. Tahra, who was guiding them on their journey, must now search the ether, bringing each person back, each one changed by their experience. Tahra must also deal with the repercussions to her own psyche, as she discovers powers and instincts previously unfamiliar to her.

    This futuristic pilgrimage is juxtaposed with Ava and Sam’s journey in 1994. Ava knows nothing of her past, only that she suffers from hallucinations and appears to have advanced healing powers. Twenty-seven years after the OOBE project, what does Ava’s DNA have to do with anything? And why does she feel drawn to Sam?

    From the front cover to the very last page, Harbon takes the reader on an intricate journey across universes. The cover itself sets the stage with dramatic colors and a science fiction feel. The editing and formatting aid the reader in understanding the plot. There are so many different characters and worlds and timelines, that italics and scene breaks are crucial to knowing who is talking when and in what reality it is happening.

    Do not begin this tale without the desire to be swept away for hours. The in-depth characterization, intricate plot, detailed worlds, and mysterious intrigue require complete attention. One moment the reader will find herself on a world with mechanical elves and in the next moment mapping genomes in the twentieth century.

    Seven Point Eight is an exciting and fast-paced


    Seven Point Eight is an exciting and fast-paced novel that took me a while to get into but ultimately had me hooked. Paul is a physicist who creates a project using several talented psychics and people who can travel to other realms. Funding the project is Max, a mysterious and enigmatic man who is in love with one of the more talented psychics, Tahra. It just so happens that Paul also loves her. Between the love triangle and the experiment itself, the book is incredibly entertaining. It moved back and forth between character view-points effortlessly and the author uses a format that is used for writing TV series and it works very well for this particular story. The editing is also done to perfection. The characters are very well written and I found myself becoming invested in what happened to them. The twists and turns, especially near the end, were surprising and made it all well worth the read. Although it is part of a series, it can be read on its own with no problem. I can’t say that the cover caught my eye. It does draw attention to the involvement of the pyramids in the story but for me it didn’t particularly grab my eye. I loved the story and can’t wait to read the next book in the series as well as the first one that I missed so I can see how it all started.

    The origin story in the Chronicle series, Harbon sets up a tanta

    The origin story in the Chronicle series, Harbon sets up a tantalizing tale of psychic intrigue that follows a family who may have interacted across several lifetimes. It begins with an attempt to kidnap a young mother and her daughter, and flashes back across Tahra Mamoun’s life as a psychic in the 60’s recruited by an Institute with mildly nefarious purposes, and follows her life as she falls in love with one man and thwarts another who seeks to turn her affections at all costs. She has children and their lifes in the 90’s are also described as they seek their true identity while trying to sort out their feelings towards each other, without full revelation of their true relationship.

    Seven Point Eight is a fascinating account of psychic travels to other dimensions while still not fully understanding or navigating our own. The love triangle between Tahra, Paul and Max is disturbing yet oddly understandable, particularly in the context of the centuries and Tahra’s psychic connections to other worlds. The character development is subtle but well played and somehow you always know the relationship between Sam and Ava, but can’t quite pinpoint when you pick up on it, Usual Suspect style. This is a hallmark of good storytelling in my book and I look forward to seeing how the rest of the story unfolds.

    I found Seven Point Eight The Second Chronicle by Marie Harbon t

    I found Seven Point Eight The Second Chronicle by Marie Harbon to be a fantastic read. It is the second of a series, however I feel like it could be read as a standalone. I did not feel lost or like I was really missing important information from not reading the first book. I now want to read the whole series. 




    If you like science fiction, action, and drama, this is the book for you. The reader gets to discover new and hidden worlds and learn about their third eye. There are several characters in this story, but the main three will stay with you even after you are finished with the book.




    Are our destinies really predetermined? It is one of the answers that gets answered (sort of ) in this story. You may get confused when it seems like there are two different stories happening at the same time. Keep at it. You will not be disappointed. I could not put this book down and found myself making exclamations out loud while reading.




    This story gets 5 stars from me. It was able to hold my attention without getting me bored.  This book has a lot of pages, but I did not find of fluff or filler put in there.

    ¿Seven Point Eight: The Second Chronicle¿ starts off ominously¿a

    “Seven Point Eight: The Second Chronicle” starts off ominously—a van filled with armed men drives through a peaceful country scene, and once it reaches its destination they kidnap a woman and child. Though seemingly unrelated to what happens next, it all ties together to result in a satisfying, fast-paced science fiction/fantasy novel.
     
    Though I didn’t read the first in the series, I didn’t have any trouble following this one—the author does a good job of weaving in backstory so that you’re not confused. The story switches back and forth between scenes of Ava, who has a super human immunity, and the trials of Paul and Tahra, who are trying to save the twelve volunteers who were sucked into other dimensions as a result of Project OOBE. Tahra must travel into those dimensions to save them, and what she sees, experiences, and even brings back with her have lasting repercussions.
     
    I will admit I was originally intimidated by the size of this—but I was pleasantly surprised at how the storyline maintains its suspense and held my interest all the way through. The other dimensions are creative and imaginative (the realm of torture is especially horrific, and the realm of the machine elves disturbing in its own way), and I liked how the author ties it the story into Egyptian mythology and across decades of time. How everything eventually flows together fits perfectly and was unexpected (at least to me)—it results in a lot of “ah ha!” moments in thinking back over the book. I also enjoyed how distinct the characters’ personalities were—Ava is driven but fragile, afraid her hallucinations will take over, while Paul and Tahra have a strength of devotion to each other that remains strong even in the face of betrayal. And Max, though sinister and a force of evil in the book, manages to not be entirely unsympathetic, given his motivations. I would recommend this novel to readers who like complex, action-driven fantasy sci fi that plays out in an epic fashion over the course of a series.

    Seven Point Eight delivers a sweeping tale of Science and Spirit

    Seven Point Eight delivers a sweeping tale of Science and Spirituality that is unique, epic and mesmerizing on an epic scale. Many of the characters from the first book come into play once again an they each transform this work into a well-written novel that will truly last the test of time. 
    This is a very long masterpiece that blends many different genres together in a wild caldron of Fiction, Fantasy, Action, Thriller, Spirituality and Romance each with their own uniqueness and spectacular appeal. In all honesty what else can you ask for in a book of this quality and above all magnitude? 
    The best parts for me I found to be the experiments of time/dimensional travel that I felt were extremely well written and absolutely brilliant. I cannot think of another book that I have read lately that develops its characters in this profound way. It is almost as if you become engulfed personally with of the characters.
    Author Marie Harbon is extremely descriptive in the worlds that she has created and thought of. When reading her words I found myself picturing and taking in every bit of scenery, almost as if I was there in person. I was truly sad when the last pages came and went. The biggest question for me is what to read next that will come close to reaching the high level of perfection in which Seven Point Eight is written.
    In closing this is truly a great novel that has hit a home run in my book. I give it 5 stars and can’t wait to read more.
