How do you fight an enemy who has a million eyes?
What if we’re living in an alternate timeline? What if the car crash that killed Princess Diana, the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower, and the shooting of King William II weren’t supposed to happen?
Ex-history teacher Gregory Ferro finds evidence that a cabal of time travellers is responsible for several key events in our history. These events all seem to hinge on a dry textbook published in 1995, referenced in a history book written in 1977 and mentioned in a letter to Edward III in 1348.
Ferro teams up with down-on-her-luck graduate Jennifer Larson to get to the truth and discover the relevance of a book that seems to defy the arrow of time. But the time travellers are watching closely. Soon the duo are targeted by assassins willing to rewrite history to bury them.
Million Eyes is a fast-paced conspiracy thriller about power, corruption and destiny.
MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW:
This is a great book. Is it a Scifi /conspiracy thriller with time travel thrown in? It is a book that straddles genres and drags the reader through a myriad of adventures. Whilst it is hard to fit into a genre one niche it can fit in is” Superb quality fiction!”
This is the first book in a proposed trilogy and introduces us to the key jargons of the Scify/ conspiracy crossover thriller. It is a fast paced read and invites the reader to suspend their disbelief; and it rewards the reader in doing so. A book that spans 900 years of recorded history and more besides. This first book in the proposed trilogy sets up the premise for a superb series.
The narrative is full of well rounded characters and with not a wasted word in what is a piece of superb fiction. I would urge you to grab a copy and dive into the adventure. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!
C.R. Berry is a writer to watch!
Author Bio –
C.R. Berry caught the writing bug at the tender age of four and has never recovered. His earliest stories were filled with witches, monsters, evil headteachers, Disney characters and the occasional Dalek. He realised pretty quickly that his favourite characters were usually the villains. He wonders if that’s what led him to become a criminal lawyer. It’s certainly why he’s taken to writing conspiracy thrillers, where the baddies are numerous and everywhere.
After a few years getting a more rounded view of human nature’s darker side, he quit lawyering and turned to writing full-time. He now works as a freelance copywriter and novelist and blogs about conspiracy theories, time travel and otherworldly weirdness.
He was shortlisted in the 2018 Grindstone Literary International Novel Competition and has been published in numerous magazines and anthologies, including Storgy, Dark Tales, Theme of Absence and Suspense Magazine. He was also shortlisted in the Aeon Award Contest, highly commended by Writers’ Forum, and won second prize in the inaugural To Hull and Back Humorous Short Story Competition.
He grew up in Farnborough, Hampshire, a town he says has as much character as a broccoli. He’s since moved to the “much more interesting and charming” Haslemere in Surrey.
