Empire (In Her Name)

Empire (In Her Name) by Michael R. Hicks

This is a best book ever!

A young Reza Gard is taken away from a planet for orphans by Kreelan worriers and forced to live on the alien's home planet. With everything he knows and loves stripped away from him, Reza has to prove that he is not an animal and is worthy of life among the alien race. He not only survives he is part of a prophesy - Reza rocks!

The story of Empire will make you wonder who are really the animals - humans or the Kreelans. This is a story of slavery, survival, and love. Nothing is over done here and the story is good to the last page.

Empire is told in a way that kept me turning pages. The editing is very good and should even please the edit police. Open this book and be prepared to be beamed to an alien planet, submerged into their culture and learn to live the way of a Kreelan worrier.

I downloaded Confederation ( book 2 of the trilogy) before I finished this book because, yeah it is that good. I can't wait to see what happens to Reza next.


EMPIRE is the coming-of-age story of Reza Gard, a young boy of the Human Confederation who is swept up in the century-long war with the alien Kreelan Empire. Nightmarish female warriors with blue skin, fangs, and razor sharp talons, the Kreelans have technology that is millennia beyond that of the Confederation, yet they seek out close combat with sword and claw, fighting and dying to honor their god-like Empress.

Captured and enslaved, Reza must live like his enemies in a grand experiment to see if humans have souls, and if one may be the key to unlocking an ages old curse upon the Kreelan race. Enduring the brutal conditions of Kreelan life, Reza and a young warrior named Esah-Zhurah find themselves bound together by fate and a prophecy foretold millennia before they were born.
