Seven Point Eight
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.
