Description

In the first book of the In Her Name: The Last War trilogy, the Terran survey ship Aurora makes a startling discovery in an uncharted star system: two planets inhabited by an advanced, and decidedly unfriendly, non-human civilization. Disabled by gigantic alien warships before it can escape, the Aurora is boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs who slaughter the crew in ritual combat using primitive weapons. The sole survivor, Midshipman Ichiro Sato, is returned to Earth as a messenger bearing a device that warns of an impending attack.

For that is the way of the Kreelan Empire, which has waged war against civilizations across the stars in its quest for a savior, one not of their own blood, foretold in an ages-old prophecy. With only a few generations left before their ancient species faces extinction, the Kreelans will wage their last war against humanity, hoping against hope for redemption of sins long past.

First Contact

A thrill ride from start to finish. This book was excellent and kept the reader engaged from the beginning to the end. I thoroughly loved this book.

Once you start you can’t stop

I loved the “In Her Name” series and was hooked from the first book. What to do when humanity meets a race so similar but so different. The aliens are so alien in concepts that humans don’t understand. Masterfully written, beautifully orchestrated in a compelling saga that keeps you turning pages. This is a must for anyone who likes action packed space operas!

A great read !

Thank you Michael Hicks for writing this series of novels! I’m now on book 6 and have enjoyed the universe created within its pages. For those wondering if the book is worth the time, just read it, you’ll be hooked. Great characters, concept, and plot. It will be hard to put these books down.

May thy Way be long and glorious.
