Présentation de l'éditeur

The Last War is a trilogy collection of the bestselling In Her Name series, and includes the complete text of the standalone novels First Contact, Legend Of The Sword, and Dead Soul.

First Contact

Led by Commander Owen McClaren, the TNS Aurora is embarked on an extended survey mission, searching for new worlds that could support human life. Drawn to an uncharted star system by the discovery of potentially habitable planets, the crew of the Aurora discovers something entirely unexpected: the planets are already inhabited, but not by humans. Approached by gigantic alien starships, Aurora's crew makes ready for humanity's very first contact with another sentient race.

Legend Of The Sword

Six months have passed since the destruction of the human colony on Keran by the alien Kreelan Empire. Earth and other human worlds band together to form the Confederation of Humanity to provide a mutual defense against the alien invaders.

Unfortunately, not all human worlds want to join the Confederation. Some, like Saint Petersburg, would rather see it destroyed. With a powerful navy built in secret and armed with nuclear weapons, Saint Petersburg is preparing their own offensive against the Confederation when the Kreelans attack.

Dead Soul

Three years after the brutal first contact encounter with the alien Kreelan Empire, the human Confederation is desperate for a victory. With over a dozen worlds under siege by legions of Kreelan warriors, President McKenna orders the Confederation military to deliver a victory to give humanity hope.

Roland Mills, Valentina Sikorsky, Ichiro Sato and his wife Steph, along with the irrepressible General James Sparks are once again at the sharp end of the spear in a mission to take back the colony of Alger's World from the alien invaders before it's too late.

I have just completed the six books in the first two-thirds of Michael Hicks's "In Her Name" series. Although I have a couple of the single editions, I am basing these comments on the two omnibus editions: "The Last War" and "Redemption". "The Last War" consists of "First Contact", "Legend of the Sword", and "Dead Soul". "Redemption" consists of "Empire", Confederation", and "Final Battle".

I love the fact that just about anyone can publish an ebook these days. Anyone with a story to tell has the opportunity to get it out there for the general public to read. As an avid reader, I have come across some very intelligent and well thought out tales! I have also come across some terrible ones. The problems come in when the writer lacks either the talent or the discipline to tell the tale coherently and in a way that captivates the reader. Some of the stories I have come across recently were interesting but written so poorly that getting through the initial novel was a chore...and you can imagine how much I wanted to continue following the story after such an experience. One of the current ways authors get new readers is to give the first novel in a series away for free. I will usually pick up any free book offered and read them once I get around to it. Such was the case with Mr Hicks's "First Contact" and "Empire". I had downloaded both and they had been sitting around waiting for me to get to them for months...I am kind of sorry I waited so long.

OK, before I go any further, let me state upfront that these books are a good read and well worth the very reasonable price being asked for them. Out of five stars, I give them a solid four. With that said, there are some flaws that (armchair QuarterBack that I am) I will point out. For the record, it is fear of jerks like me picking apart the hard work of respectable authors like Mr Hicks that has kept me from publishing my first novel...go figure. :-)

I read the books in chronological order rather that the order in which they were published. I generally recommend that books be read in the order of publication, as reading a "prequel" (where the author usually provides better, more developed information about events and concepts) sometimes makes the story harder to follow. Such was this case with these books. I did not follow my own advice this time simply because I was not clear on what the actual order was... I wish that I had started with "Redemption", it would have made for a better experience.

"Redemption" was an good read, but you could tell that it was an earlier work. As far as a plot goes, think Hubbard's "Battlefield Earth" and you will have the general idea. A resourceful and highly intelligent human is raised and taught by a highly advanced and war like alien race. Human eventually becomes the baddest being alive and saves friends and world......been there done that. However, to call this a clone of "Battlefield Earth" would be wrong. There is a lot of original thought in this story and for the most part, not as predictable as you might expect. One of the things that bothered me while reading this was that it was obvious that the sections were written at different times (i.e. the flow just wasn't always there). I saw this in things like the way certain events were described at different times. Often they would differ slightly...even when presented by the characters who were involved in the original incident. While the differences were always minor, they would give just a hint of discord in the flow of the story....kind of like picking up a splinter when running your hand down a wooden railing. The other thing that bothered me were the inconsistencies that kept popping up throughout the book. For example the claw colors for the alien Kreelan warriors kept flip-flopping. At one point a certain character would have black claws and later they would be silver...then later again black. Maddening. Another example can be seen in the military ranks...at one point one of the secondary characters was described as a Marine First Sergeant. In latter descriptions he was a Gunnery Sergeant. In the modern military, a First Sergeant is pay grade E8 while a Gunnery Sergeant is pay grade E6. Granted that there may have been a different rank structure in the authors world, but I didn't get that from reading the story. In fact, at times it seemed that the author didn't really understand much more than the basics about military culture and how ranks interact. Interactions between ranks often felt forced and artificial.
The last third of the book "Final Battle" was by far the worst part of the story. From the vary first it seemed rushed and less well thought out than the rest of the books. Too many things happened too quickly and conveniently for my tastes...it was clear the author had an agenda and nothing was going to derail it! I have to admit he did get there in the end....

"The Last War" was a much smoother ride of the two trilogies, and by far my favorite. In this book, we get the story about how the Kreelan war started in the first place. Mr. Hicks did a great job of painting a picture of humanities' first contact with an advanced sentient species. He also did a much better job of keeping things flowing and development of the characters was first rate. I could identify with the charaters and often found myself either cheering them on or sympathizing with them...no mean feat! Unfortunately, the inconsistencies, although much reduced, showed up here as well. (The claws again, dammit!) It was interesting to see how much Mr. Hicks's writing style (and ability?) had matured in this set of books.

To date I have read one other of Mr.Hicks's works..."Season of the Harvest". In this one the author takes on one of the most overused themes in SciFi...Alien invasion (the other is Zombies!). Surprisingly he does it in a very readable and interesting fashion. I am unsure where this book falls in terms of when it was written, but judging by how well it was done, I would guess after the "Redemption" books.

Overall, I can only recommend Mr. Hicks's work...while there are some minor flaws, the overall story and the intelligent way they are presented are very good indeed. I found my copies in the Kindle store on Amazon.com, but I think they are in the iTunes bookstore as well.

Michael Hicks is one of the many excellent authors I have "discovered" through the magic of my Kindle. This trilogy was well written, fast moving and marvelously creative. I especially like Hicks' use of portraying key events through
different character's perspective. I am anxious to start his Empire Trilogy and I hope it is as entertaining and thought provoking as "The Last War". I proclaim this book a "Value Read". You will not be disappointed.

This book is a great read. Will keep you going to the end. I would recommend reading this before reading the Empire trilogy, just for a time sense and mystery. The characters are well established and everything has enough believability and background info to keep the readers interested.

Normally I'm not a big fan of a "prequel" type series but this one kicked some major butt. I read First Contact before coming across this collection of all 3 books together and at first I was a little disappointed about the extra money I had already spent but let me just say it was well worth it and then some. It was nice to get some background on the war between the Kreela and mankind and I found myself spending hours at a time absorbing every word on the page. The books were full of characters that were easy to care about and I often found myself on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next.

I highly recommend this series as well as the first series which picks up after this one. Good stuff, you won't be disappointed!
