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.
