April 9, 2016: Cold Coffee Press Book Review For milijun by Clayton Graham *****
Mankind has always had a fascination with extraterrestrials which dates fromice-age cave walls, ancient Egyptian carvings all the way to milijun byClayton Graham. This well written novel explores our deepest darkestfears that as a planet we are not ready for an alien incursion, in factwe pretend our intellect can save us. However, in Australia 2179 AD main character Laura Sinclair is faced with the unimaginable when she andher son Jason witness aliens descending to earth. I invite you to theAustralia outback where things are not as you might imagine.

May 24, 2016: Reviewed By Charity Tober for Readers' Favorite *****
Milijun by Clayton Graham involves an alien invasion, the Australian Outback,and a reluctant but more than capable female lead...what's not to like? I really enjoyed Milijun and thought it was a unique and refreshing takeon the alien invasion story line. The author quickly sets up the worldand the plot takes off, taking readers on a highly suspenseful andentertaining ride. . The aliens were well done and the author was verydescriptive regarding them, so I could really picture in my mind howthey looked and sounded. I recommend Milijun by Clayton Graham to allfans of the science fiction genre.

30 Aug 2016: Hungry Monster ****
Graham's book "Milijun" is, at its core, the story of a mother trying to keep safe a son who is increasingly thrown in danger, first by others, but later at his own behest and for noble intentions. The expanse of space and the futuristic Australia are both described in wonderful detail, revealing great personal knowledge with both environments. The humanity and motives of every character are questioned, both for their personal interests in the new alien species and the possibility they are being possessed by that invading species. There are themes throughout of motherhood, the moral stakes in scientific exploration, the nature of the afterlife, and the existence of souls - all used to great effect. The ending, which was oddly ambiguous in its instantaneous, unexpected nature, nevertheless intrigues me, especially with many plot threads still left open-ended, and I'm excited to see where the surviving characters go in subsequent works. Hungry Monster.

May 19 2016: Jenna *****
"Milijun" is an excellent novel that captured my interest from the beginning, pulled me in, and never once let go! Clayton Graham is a hugely talented writer who knows how to grab and keep our attention! I felt like I was genuinely inside the characters' hearts and heads (especially Laura, who I LOVED) experiencing the world through their eyes, for better or worse. I would love to read more from this author in the future. He has a natural gift for creating a well-thought out story and developing deeply memorable characters with a strong, mysterious plot that keeps you guessing and invested throughout, and the world he has created here is unlike anything I've ever read before. Indie Book Reviewers.

May 9 2016: Twisted Book Curmidgeon *****
Page after page flew by and I found myself drawn more and more into the story. The world building is amazing. The story fast paced and well-defined. Although I didn't finish the book in one sitting as I normally do when I fall in love with a story, Milijun is something that needed to be pondered. Stepping away from it helped me figure out a few crucial things only to find myself diving back into the story for more. Lilac Reviews.

Tracy Terry: April 19 2016 ****
Milijun is very readable. Hugely compelling. Just what are these aliens and just what do they want? Are mother and son, Laura and Jason (the 'First Seen'), able to trust Major General Ord of the Australian Defence Force or the mysterious Uriel, enigmatic head of Milijun, a reclusive research facility in the outback?
A well written 'extraterrestrial' novel and yet at its heart is the very human story of a mother whose strength and resolve is tested time and time again as not only the future of her son but indeed everything she knows is turned on its head.
Initially alternating between several different threads, the characters and their stories eventually entwine, coming together to reveal all in a wonderfully thought provoking ending that doesn't disappoint.

From the Author

Milijun actually started as a short story. The birth of the alien RNasia occurred in the short story, and when they decided to wing their way to Earth I knew it could not end there. They seemed to want their universal journey to be worth something; they wanted their mission fulfilled. So I decided to oblige them.


The book is about more than an alien incursion into the Australian outback. It asks questions about our place in the universe, or multiverses (as we are now led to believe may be a possibility).


The novel explores the relationship between a mother and son. How far can it be stretched before the links break? How far would a mother go to save her son? Would she be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice, or undertake actions she would never have deemed possible prior to the alien incursion?


Above all, Milijun explores the question what would mankind do when faced with an intelligence it cannot understand? It's a good question, for it may happen someday. We are not currently prepared, of course. We are light years away from understanding how we should behave in such a circumstance. Milijun challenges our mindsets through the eyes of a mother and son, and as such is perhaps more powerful and meaningful than if that challenge was through the eyes of the United Nations or the President of the United States.


In the end, Milijun probably asks more questions than it answers. But it does raise the questions. We cannot relax on Earth forever, ignorant of our cosmic surroundings, idling our time away, creating a mirage of prosperity, which appears to create an equally ferocious misery.


Writing Milijun was a labour of love. It was not easy, but neither was it hard. Science Fiction is a love of mine, has been since I was a teenager, escaping to new worlds in the back streets of Stockport, England, where I grew up as a child. Halcyon days, when education and school milk were free, and summers were real summers. We didn't have much, but we had enough.


Milijun is my debut novel, and for me the realisation of a dream.
