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.Read more ›
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.
As for as criticism, there are few things that could be improved. One is there are some misspellings and once the the wrong character's name appears in dialog, which is a very minor point and did not really detract from the book too much since the mistakes were few. In addition, the world seems a bit far fetched that their computing technology seems about the level of present day with talk of 'flash drives'. Nobody even has cellphones or other devices except Walter which seemed odd. The ship's computer has a keyboard. I also felt that there were a few places where pages that need to be shortened, like the wadi-thoughts parts. I tended to skim those to get onto the next part where something happens. I really didn't understand the point of Riggs except to add to the overall misery - maybe there will more about that later?
None of these criticisms mean that the book is not worth it - it certainly is and I've already purchased and downloaded the Fight for Peace and am looking forward to it. There are many series by very famous writers that I lost interest in, but no so with this one!
Unlike the first two in the series, this book was exceptionally gory, bloody, and disturbing. Normally, this doesn't really bother me, but it was so out of character from the first two books, I had a hard time believing that this was written by the same author.
Secondly, the plot line is so disjointed, even three quarters through the book the reader has no idea what the heck is going on. I like a bit of mystery as much as the next guy, but this book goes way beyond this. I honestly don't know if I will complete reading this book - I've had to take a break from it twice already to read something else. It's simply become too painful to claw my way through it.
I don't know who wrote this book, but it wasn't the same person who wrote the first two.....

A great series written like the old serials that used to run at the theaters on Saturdays. Each book leaves you with a cliffhanger so you anxiously await the next in the series. Read morePublished 3 months ago by logan knight
