Essentially the Product Description for the Omnibus Edition, here, contains the outline for the first book. Under the first book In Her Name: Empire there is not quite so much of a description (which is a good thing) as if I were buying it as a standalone book then I would be a bit annoyed at having been given the whole story before buying it.
There are three distinct parts to the omnibus: Resa with the Kreela and setting up of the main characters; Resa and his life after the Kreela and meeting up with those from the first book; the resolution of the war between the Kreela and humans.
I found that within Book1 and as a story in itself, it hung together really well, and my reading 'sympathy' went always with Resa. However, his loyalties in the first book changed as he understood the way of the Kreela and lived among them for many years. But I had to question myself about how as an observer I felt about these changes of loyalty - while I agreed with them in the book; would I feel the same way to the race that had killed my parents?Read more ›
Reza life is turned upside down by the alien who destory his world. The only thing he know is that he has to survive. When he is giving to Esah-Zhurah as a slave he trys to prove that he is so much more that a mere animal.
Slow Esah-Zhurah is stunned by her animal and as they grow together and he opens upto her before he takes the challenge she discovers that she actually love him. To save him she risks her life....book one express how much they grow and learn to love each other.... Everthing ends when Reza informs the empress he can not destroy his fellow humans as he can not. As he is seperate from his soul mate he goes back to his own kind to be hated as a half breed.
I would have love to have read more about Esah-Zhurah feeling as she is torn away from the only person she has every loved.... Reza feeling for her never change and his seperation totally make you feel his pain.
I'm not going to comment in detail on the plot as that's covered elsewhere by other reviews, other than to say Part One is by far the best of the three books, with the third and final part being the weakest. But overall the set works well.
My main disappointment concerns the main character in the later novels... Despite having almost superhuman strength and cognitive powers, including the ability to 'feel' the presence of others around him and walk through solid walls, the 'hero' still manages to blunder into some fairly easy-to-avoid traps (such as failing to realise one of his intended targets is a hologram, for example) which would have tidied things up a lot sooner and would have prevented the deaths of a number of key characters.
Also - if you had an entire planet set aside for Marine Basic Training, would you really only run one cadre at a time in one camp? If casualties are running as high as we are led to believe, then several cadres at different camps running concurrently would be more likely, pushing out thousands of marines after each training-cycle, rather than the few hundred mentioned in the book.
Aside from minor niggles like that though, I was able to keep my disbelief cheerfully suspended.
I've also downloaded the next book in the series which goes back 10,000 years into the past to where it all began...
To be honest, for the price, it doesn't get much better.
