In the case of Invasion, references have been made to it, but as far as I know (something tells me someone may prove me wrong), no references have been made to Millennium, nor did it reference anything else.
I can't think of a reference to Millennium in the larger Lit-verse, and I don't believe it referenced anything. If I remember correctly, Marco's view on Millennium was the same as his view on A Stitch In Time; the books weren't part of the DS9 relaunch proper but they were as valid a part of the relaunch universe as the television series itself.
Millennium was mentioned in passing in the first DTI book, while Grigari have been mentioned as antagonists in the mirror universe as well as in the main universe.

Sounds like these Grigari would make a good new antagonist for the Lit-verse, either as common foe or new member of the Typhon/Taurus Pacts.

Yeah, Christopher has Dulmur or Lucsly mention off-hand that the crew of DS9 did a very good job during a crisis involving Red Orbs (possibly named specifically as Red Orbs of Jalbador).

One of the Cold Equations books, I think it was Silent Weapons, name-dropped the Grigari (I believe in the same sentence as the "Fesarian Federation," which made me pretty darn happy!).

Also, in defense of the paucity of references to Millenium: the way the story is written, you'd sorta expect the characters not to reference it too much, especially since the entire 2nd book was experienced by only about 50 people who remain in the Prime (or Mirror) timelines.

The Persistence of Memory mentioned the Grigari as potential candidates for the Galen IV raids, while in Silent Weapons the Fesarian Federation was a polity within range of ... well.

Well I guess I was proved wrong, but I figured I would be so...

And now I realize I knew the DTI book referenced Millennium, so that was probably why subconsciously I knew I'd be proven wrong.

It's been forever since I read Millenium, but didn't they end with the memories fading away like a dream, or somesuch BS?

Not that I recall. They had to erase the memories of Quark, Odo, and Garak on the Day of Withdrawal, but everyone from 2374 retained theirs.
