First Contact (In Her Name, Book 1)

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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.

Worth your time

A very entertaining tale that both spurs your imagination while at times tugging your heart strings. The author weaves a tale of a first contact that is not E.T. and I found it difficult to stop myself from reading the complete book in a single setting.

You won't be sorry selecting this sifi thriller, enjoy!

First Contact (In Her Name: The Last War, Book 1)

Great science fiction. There is a lot of fantasy to read and very little good science fiction. I bonded with the characters and could not believe that some of them died. I cried for them.
