More About the Author

Hugh Howey is the author of the award-winning Molly Fyde Saga and the New York Times and USA Today bestselling WOOL series. The WOOL OMNIBUS won Kindle Book Review's 2012 Indie Book of the Year Award -- it has been as high as #1 in the Kindle store -- and 17 countries have picked up the work for translation. Look for WOOL in hardback in 2013 from Random House UK and keep your fingers crossed that Ridley Scott and Steve Zaillian will do something exciting with the film rights!

Hugh lives in Jupiter, FL with his wife Amber and their dog Bella. When he isn't writing, he's reading or taking a photograph.

Good character development and story.

I read them back to back and could hardly get anything else done until I'd finished reading.

This book had me on the edge of my seat or as close as one can come without falling off.

I'd like to begin a review on a very positive note. I'm very happy that I've discovered Hugh Howey. He is truly a very good writer. I think I like this author because of how easy his prose is. I'm not a native English speaker so for me reading sometimes doesn't come easy. And as I'm a fan of hard sci-fi, with those books I have to concentrate really hard to grasp everything, and sometimes because the story is so captivating it is very frustrating for me that I can't read it fast enough. This is not the case with Hugh Howey's writing. Most of his books are very fast and light reads. And I enjoy them immensely.

Blood of the Millions is the first book where Molly and Cole are not together. They each have their own story line. Molly is still on the planet Lok where Bern invasion has started. She is searching for her parents' friends who supposed to help her find special fusion fuel that will make it possible for her to jump to hyperspace and find Cole and her father. Cole is in hyperspace where he has to escape brutal captors and for the first time meets Mortimer, Molly's father. There is also a third story line involving Anlyn and Edison, who have adventure of their own and inadvertently become part of the Bern fleet.

I've reviewed previous two books in the series Parasona Rescue and Land Of Light. I rated them 5 stars. Unfortunately for this one I'll have to go with 4 stars. Over all it's still a great and exciting read. However there were three points that were very different from previous two books and just to be fair I had to lower my rating.

First off, in previous books the actions would start right off the bat. In Blood of the Millions however it didn't start up until a third into the book.

Like many others, I read Mr. Howey's Wool books, and cast about for other things he had written while waiting for the next installment. And found Molly Fyde.

I believe these books we actually written for a slightly younger audience, but that didn't really detract from my enjoyment of them. They feature a young brave heroine, a love interest, a quest, and space flight, thereby meeting all of the requirements for a good classic space opera.

I really enjoyed this series, though it is very different than Wool, and am very happy to see that Mr. Howey's style of writing is just as entertaining and interesting outside of the silos.

This is a good series of books and Howey is a great author. I enjoyed the first two. For some reason this book contains many graphically described scenes of gore, torture and violence. As you are reading them it all feels gratuitous. They are not required to push the plot forward dropping his literature to the standards of a bad movie. Hugh Howey is better than this. It would be nice if this book was revised to keep it more in line with the tone set earlier in the series.

Up until now I've loved everything I've read by this author, but I must confess this one has been harder for me to get into. I've really gotten bogged down in the book, and finally set it aside. I'm sure I'll go back and finish, as I really want to see what happens to Molly, but the story was really dragging for me, and it was becoming a labor to keep going.

I'm not sure exactly why I am having such a hard time with this one. It might just be the pacing. All of the characters are split up, and we're jumping between them frequently. As soon as I start to get into what one person is doing, it skips to a different character. It makes it hard to get invested in their struggles. The characters are also having abuse constantly being heaped upon them through the whole thing. While I often enjoy the "give the hero a really really bad day, and see how they overcome their hardships" type of story, there needs to be at least some positive and triumph. So far it's just more and more crap being dumped on them, with no positive or humor to lighten it up. It gets depressing after a time. When the characters are all with each other, I think they can give each other, and thus me, a bit of levity and positive lift. Without that, it becomes overwhelmingly negative.

All of that said, I have hopes that things will get better. People will get back together, and the story will pick up again. I'll put the book down for a bit longer, and then come back and pick up the story. I do really like Molly, and want to see how she resolves the situation.

The first two books were good but I am having trouble finishing this book. It pretty much puts me right to sleep. If you read ther first two chances are you are going to read this one too, but be warned.

While I was a bit dis-tracted by the formating issues others have point-ed out, I enjoyed this book immensely. The concepts introduced are mind blowing, fun, twisted, and fascinating. There are a lot of plot-lines going on at once, but I think the author does a nice job of keeping them tied together. His characters are endearing and it's I like that we're never sure who the bad guys really are. I would caution parents that this probably isn't for young readers. The violence and gore are pretty intense.
