In the first book of the In Her Name: The Last War trilogy, the Terran survey ship Aurora makes a startling discovery in an uncharted star system: two planets inhabited by an advanced, and decidedly unfriendly, non-human civilization. Disabled by gigantic alien warships before it can escape, the Aurora is boarded by nightmarish blue-skinned warriors with claws and fangs who slaughter the crew in ritual combat using primitive weapons. The sole survivor, Midshipman Ichiro Sato, is returned to Earth as a messenger bearing a device that warns of an impending attack.

For that is the way of the Kreelan Empire, which has waged war against civilizations across the stars in its quest for a savior, one not of their own blood, foretold in an ages-old prophecy. With only a few generations left before their ancient species faces extinction, the Kreelans will wage their last war against humanity, hoping against hope for redemption of sins long past.

    The story took me back to the old days of science fiction and the adventure of it all. I thoroughly enjoyed it and could not put it down!
  • Awesome - simply awesome!

    From Par2012
    Intelligent and captivating! I sat on the edge of my seat for most of the book! Kept rocking the reader to get the ships to move faster to get out of the enemy's way! Hicks is a born storyteller. You want to hug the heroes and kill the seriously disturbing aliens. Now I'm on to book 2 to find out what happens next! I'm going to so enjoy the next few months as I read this series! Thrill!
