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.
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.
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.
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.
