Product Description

Product Description

As Earth and the other worlds of the Confederation bind their wounds after the disastrous first battle with the alien Kreelan Empire, Ichiro Sato finds himself in command of the heavy cruiser Yura. His ship is one of many in the task force sailing for the renegade planet of Saint Petersburg, which Confederation intelligence sources believe has not only secretly built a fleet of warships to attack the Confederation, but has armed its ships with nuclear weapons, which have been outlawed in the human sphere for centuries.

Drawn into a deadly trap, the Confederation fleet and its Marines are fighting for their lives when Kreelan warships, led by the enigmatic warrior priestess Tesh-Dar, materialize out of hyperspace. As Tesh-Dar and her warriors wreak havoc on the humans, Ichiro, former Legionnaire Roland Mills, and a Confederation spy known as Scarlet, are faced with desperate choices from which they learn the true meaning of sacrifice.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first one 29 Aug 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have now read all of the "In her name" books to date the next one "Dead Soul" should be coming out soon. I thought that the first "Empire" was the best with the others just not quite as good however this latest one "Legend of the Sword" is every bit as good as Empire. It is I think because there is a better balance between the Kreelans and humans with more interaction than just battles, because of this there was more time to develop characters and interrelationships, particularly between Vallentina/Scarlet & Dmitri and between Mills & Tesh-Dar. In keeping with the others this book finishes in "to be continued" mode which is a slight annoyance with the whole series, although obviously intended to be read in sequence as they are a serial rather than series and do not stand well alone this could have been helped immensely had the author included an introduction, which did not need to be long, bringing the reader up to speed if they had not read the previous one in the series.
Despite my criticism I think this is one of the best science fiction /fantasy series that I have read in a long time and look forward to reading the next one and finding more about Tesh-Dar in "Dead Soul" which I hope will not be the last book.

5.0 out of 5 stars something different. 8 July 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole "In Her Name" series, and having just finished the last one I feel I might have to read them again from the begining.
I must praise the author's method of giving the first book of each series away free, as a means of allowing readers the chance to get a feel of the style and substance of the stories without commitment. Worked for me. I bought the lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Legend of the sword. 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A cracking read that is informative about all the character's past and a constant bringing in of New ones that pushes the story allowing at a cracking have not only a connection with the humans but all so with the aliens who tend to remind you of several types of human warrior classes of the past all mixed into one.Can't wait for the next book..
