5.0 out of 5 stars More of the Kreelan story unfolds in this well crafted prequel - Again Outstanding, 16 Mar 2011
This review is from: Legend Of The Sword (The Last War Trilogy, Book 2) (In Her Name) (Kindle Edition)
The story of the clash of two cultures continues apace. In another well crafted and delivered story, we view the continuing lives and struggles of the main characters from the first in the series, and a few new ones. However, the main character in this story is the Kreelan priestess.

In In Her Name: First Contact the story starts to show us parts of the priestess; in this book we are treated to a concentration on her past that had its fair share of ups and downs - that we then see mirrored in In Her Name (Omnibus Edition) with Esah-Zhurah and her life.

I congratulate the author in being able to move my sympathies to be active on 'both sides' of the battle; simply because we get to understand where the Kreelans are coming from (that does not imply that I condone their actions). I found myself in several places having to sop reading to avoid any tears (I was reading at work in my lunch-break) and thinking what it would be like if I or my family were involved.

The introduction of Scarlet was interesting, however, I was expecting a confrontation from her with Tesh-Dar given the amount of training that she had gone through - maybe next time!

If you have read and enjoyed any of the author's other books, then this one will not disappoint you (it would be best though to read the In Her Name books in order).

Apparently there is to be another book to come after this one - it was due at the end of 2010, so hopefully it will be out soon.
