Blog Tour, Book Review

-| Blog Tour… Million Eyes III |-

A big thank you to C R Berry for reaching out to provide me with a copy of the final book in this trilogy to read and review. As always you know that my thoughts are my own. You can catch up on my reviews for the first two books here and here.

Let’s jump right in…

The final book in the Million Eyes trilogy. Time is the ultimate deceiver. On a cold morning in 2219, Cara Montgomery and her husband, Jackson, have a frightening encounter on the beach. An encounter that leads to a war with a depraved and relentless alien race, the Shapeless, changing their lives forever. Three hundred years earlier, Harriet Turner travels to the future to learn the shocking secret behind Victorian London’s most notorious serial killer, Jack the Ripper. A mysterious barber, Fred, goes with her, but Fred has a shocking secret of his own. Hunted by the ruthless Miss Morgan and plagued by visions of a snake eating its own tail, Harriet discovers that the all-powerful Million Eyes isn’t the only one with an agenda. Time itself has one too.

As this is the last book in the trilogy I’m not going to go into detail with the plot but wow, what a finale. If you have been with this blog for a while you will know that time travel is not my usual jam. However the first book in this trilogy grabbed my attention and I just had to keep reading.

This third instalment focused less on the past and more on the future which was really interesting and definitely set it apart from the other two. I love the character development we have, I just wish I could go into more detail. People really need to stop sleeping on this series and pick it up even if it’s not your usual genre like me, it might just surprise you.

These books are so complex it’s pretty impressive that the author was able to keep weaving all the different threads throughout the series that I couldn’t give this finale anything other than 5 stars.

I will definitely be reading the short story collection spin offs as I just love Berrys writing and character work.

So who is C.R Berry?

C.R. Berry started out in police stations and courtrooms—ahem, as a lawyer, not a defendant—before taking up writing full-time. He’s currently head of content for a software developer and writes fiction about conspiracies and time travel. (Note: he’s not a tin foil hat wearer, doesn’t believe 9/11 was an inside job, and thinks that anyone who believes the Earth is flat or the Royal Family are alien lizards needs to have their heads examined.)
Berry was published in Best of British Science Fiction 2020 from Newcon Press with a Million Eyes short story. He’s also been published in magazines and anthologies such as Storgy and Dark Tales, and in 2018 was shortlisted in the Grindstone Literary International Novel Competition.
In 2021, he bought his first house with his girlfriend, Katherine, in Clanfield, Hampshire, discovering whole new levels of stress renovating it (not helped by a rogue builder running off with most of their budget). The couple are now in the fun stage, going full-on nerd and theming all the rooms—their bedroom is a spaceship, their kitchen a 50s diner.
Now that the dust is settling, Berry is refocusing on the final book in the Million Eyes trilogy and getting back to writing his first collaborative novel with Katherine: a space-set adventure with aliens, terrorists, a mysterious wall that surrounds the universe and—of course—conspiracies.
