Million Eyes is a exciting time travel thriller that had me intrigued and kept me on my toes the entire time. It makes readers think and wonder, what if time travel were real? What if historical events didn't happen the way we'd always been told? What if...?
The story follows Gregory Ferro, an ex-history teacher, and Jennifer Larson, a college graduate with a degree in history, as they work to uncover the truth behind the strange, new details they've discovered about key historical events. Did

Million Eyesis quite a novel. It is an historical fiction, thriller that jumps through several points of British history. It did keep me on the edge of my seat while each historical event and subsequent mystery/thriller unfolded. I couldn’t turn the page fast enough.

C.R. Berrymanages to pull together a cast of famous figures and make them into real people. That is when you know you have a strong historical fiction on your hands. The characters you know from the history books are suddenly brought

A delicious fusion of conspiracy, crime, history and time-travel science fiction.

Science fiction is not a genre I read, but this story focuses on an intriguing conspiracy theory. It is easy to understand, and if you open your mind to the fantasy, plausible enough to hold your interest. A quirky duo of historical detectives takes on a menacing ominous power that is at war with human history.

The historical connections and flashbacks, give the story its depth and kept me reading. The dynamic

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

I loved this book so much more than I expected! I will be completely honest with you as I always am, I’ve never read time travel before so I had really low expectations going into this book as I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy it. Oh boy was I wrong!! There was so much going on that I struggled putting the book down. We travel through time ourselves seeing major historical events such as the Black Death and the terror caused by Jack the Ripper. This story is so complex and the author did an amazing ...more

How does a dry textbook, published in 1995, end up being mentioned in historical papers hundreds of years old and in another book published nearly twenty years before it was even written?

When ex-history teacher, Gregory Ferro, finds impossible evidence of an incredibly boring book, The History of Computer-Aided Timetabling for Railway Systems by Jeremy Jennings, in some old documents from 1348, he becomes convinced that time travellers have been manipulating history.

He soon persuades

Although Million Eyes is a conspiracy thriller which explores just how far technology is able to not just monitor but also change our lives, it opens in 1100 as William II and his servant discuss a mysterious book. It's unclear what is so important about the book but its title alone - 'The History of Computer-Aided Timetabling for Railway Systems' means it's immediately obvious that it shouldn't exist in the 12th century. I've seen the Rufus Stone in the New Forest where Richard was supposedly ...more

Yes, Million Eyes has all of the above which is what made me fairly sure I would enjoy it. In fact I loved it and found it hard to put down, reading it within the space of a day.

The concept of the story is that tragic royal events weren't actually meant to happen and that they all came about because time travellers went back in time and made them happen, all in the pursuit of a rather oddly named textbook. What always

It's good to know that this is the first book in a series, because I could read CR Berry's stories over and over again. The mix of history, conspiracy theories and time travel works sublimely, and the storytelling is so very clever.

The "fun" begins with Gregory Ferro and his blog, in which his seven readers are privy to his "findings" on the death of William II, the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower, the Black Death, and the death of Princess Diana, all of which are connected by this

I'm a fan of Elsewhen Press; they've gained a reputation for publishing high quality speculative fiction. I'm also a fan of time travel novels, so had high expectations of this book, their latest release. I wasn't disappointed! Million Eyes is a fast paced time travel adventure coupled with a fantastic conspiracy theory. The novel addresses some of history's greatest mysteries such as: How did William II die? What happened to the princes in the tower? And what was the truth about Princess ...more

I was offered this one as part of a blog tour, and I am very pleased I took it.
'Million Eyes' is the first of Berry's SF time travel / conspiracy theory trilogy, and which introduces us to some of the key concepts, jargon, characters and mechanics which will infuse the next two novels.
I love a bit of time travel shenanigans, and Berry doesn't disappoint - he obviously has a pretty hefty interest in it, himself - the setting up / planting of consequences and paradoxes was very strong. The pace is

As someone who found not only the death of princess Diana tragic, but also fishy this book really piqued my interest straight away. Conspiracy theories make for great stories and this is no exception. I simply couldn’t fault this book. The author who it’s clear has a keen interest in time travel has taken that and run with it and produced a story that is It fast paced, action packed, historically well researched, the flow is seem less and every character is believable.
