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.

well I have, actually, but only because of Stephen Hawking's comment in the past in terms of should there be aliens advanced enough to visit our world would we actually be safe? Or would we be better to 'keep our heads down'? Of course, Professor Hawking's dry wit lends itself to whimsy but it does present a reality where caution is paramount to survival.

In this book's predecessor, the first book of the trilogy, First Contact, Michael Hicks presents a scenario of humans encountering an alien race and the utter destruction this event leads to for humanity. In this second book, the story continues with the aliens, the Kreelans, continuing their conquest of human space. It continues to present the complete horror of the Kreelan race and their values and develops the characters we were introduced to in the first book. The Kreelans are bound by an honour to glorify their Empress, which is marked by how they engage the human forces who come to do battle with them. The Kreelans have an ancient civilization and are cultured and also superior in attitude to other races and completely and utterly dangerous.

This book is science fiction/fantasy genres yet presents credible accounts of military strategy of a future human race that has colonized the galaxy. It is fear provoking and moving and not for those who do not wish to imagine blood and gore, because there is plenty of this. On the other hand, it describes amazing heroics on both the opposing sides of the war and in this instance it is heart warming. Very strong female characters, in addition, who fight alongside the men in the various military disciplines facing the Kreelans.

It takes a lot for me to change my reading habits. I buy books for the kindle and without fail read them in the order they were downloaded, probably some form of OCD.

So having read the first book in the series, I broke with established tradition, and immediately started to read this the second book in the series.

The story continues the story of the Kreelan invasion of human occupied space, and spends quite a lot of time looking at the Warrior Priestess Tesh Da.

It's another great book to read, the story of the Kreelans is expanded upon, and with both books you get the sense that you know them just a bit better, it still does not explain why they are blood crazed maniacs, but it's helps bring a powerful story together.

The human side of things is also in good view with great stories for Sato and Marine Mills, and their strange links to the Kreelan mind. And a great character in the form of special agent Scarlet.

So book 2 of the series finished, and yes I have already started to read book three. That will end the first series, but the first book of the follow on series is already downloaded.

It's really unusual for me to read like this, but the books do grip you and I find that I just want to read more and get into the later books.

Well done to the author for bringing together a compelling story, and judging by the reviews, for providing compulsive reading for us fans.

This is one of the main reasons I like the Kindle, it's opened my reading up no end, authors I would never have heard of from browsing the bookshops are providing me with hours of enjoyment, and I thank them for it.

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.

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 pace.you 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..
