    1. Let me preface this first with the warning this may be edited in the next few days before I post a review on I want to get this right.Second, let me say that I normally prefer to review a book after I ve read it a second time as I find I m normally unable to think critically about a book after only one reading However, Mr Hicks seems like a good guy and since he asks his followers to please review his books and offers this one for free I felt obliged to give it some thought.The book is a solid 3 [...]

    2. nope 19% and I m saving myself the headache and quitting now This book is the CakeWrecks version of Warchild and as I have already read the better story, I don t feel like continuing However, for those considering this book, the first 19% has the following a boy whose parents get heroically killed but who himself is inexplicably spared by the aliens said boy saving an older girl from attempted rape the rapist trying again later in great detail both times it turns out the boy is the only kid in h [...]

    3. I wish I could give 1 2 stars, because this is a solid 3 1 2 star book I actually got it as a free download for my Kindle it s still free on at the the moment, by the way and read it as it was highly recommended I will say that it s one of the best free reads I ve encountered It isn t a bad book actually, but the first 1 3 is, well, veeerrry sloooow, so minus 1 star for that If you re thinking of reading it, stick around for at least 50 pages after he gets off Hallmark, it gets better This part [...]

    4. What this story is and what it s notLet s be clear I liked this story I read the free edition of the first book and the bought the omnibus edition, which includes the next two books I wish I could give this one 3.5 stars because I see promise but need a little Let s also be clear there s no science fiction here at least no than Star Wars or the John Carter stories The setting happens to be in the far future, on different planets, and involving a race of humanoid aliens Science fiction generall [...]

    5. This was a really good story, actually I recommend trying an unknown author now and then to anyone who truly loves to read At one point i started trying to make a list of the borrowed elements I found included in the book They included Romeo Juliet, Ender s Game, Enemy Mine, Avatar, John Carter of Mars, Les Miserable, Messianic prophesies, King David and even passing elements of eroticism And I m sure I ve forgotten some as well.So, as I said, the story was good, the writing was most of the time [...]

    6. This book actually gave me the adventure I was looking for More than that, it held my attention A pleasant and timely surprise after a recent run of bad science fiction reads However, it does have downsides.The book starts out slow There s plenty of action first thing but none of it fits together in a way that pulls the reader into a greater story Combined with unnerving switchbacks in point of view and no real sense of a main character, it s no surprise that I almost stopped reading without fin [...]

    7. So on one hand, this book covers some pretty well tread science fiction ground Young boy is orphaned twice , captured by aliens, learns about their culture, then becomes better at being an alien than any of the other aliens Sound familiar Oh, and they re all tall, blue, and have fangs, and are a primitive warrior race only not really If it weren t for the publication dates, I might have been suspicious There s also a prophecy about a super special chosen one, and a star crossed alien love affair [...]

    8. Empire In Her Name Redemption by Michael Hicks I received this book free and what a bargain This book reminded me of C.J Cherryh s Faded Sun series Mix that with James Clavell s Shogun I have only seen the mini series not read book And an eerie shades of William Golding s Lord of the Flies We first meet Reza as a seven year old whose parents are fighting a deadly battle against the Kreelan s The safe place where he had been was under attack and he came looking for his parents He arrives in time [...]

    9. Having just finished this book I can honestly say that it s well worth a second read just to absorb yourself in the world Hicks has created It s part Gladiator, part Dances With Wolves but it is space opera and it s perhaps unfortunate that Avatar had blue skinned aliens too but I think Hicks blue skinned ian aliens are way cooler and much exciting It starts with the main character Reza being orphaned and meeting the Kreelan high priestess He marks her with a knife and she responds with a corre [...]

    10. I haven t read from the sci fi genre since Star Wars first came out and I m not sure what led me to this one, but I downloaded it onto my kindle and gave it a try I was hooked from the first page and couldn t put the thing down Morning sure comes early when you ve been awake most of the night reading Normally I don t like books that have anything to do with war the alien Kreelans are at war with the human race and yet this book captured my imagination, flung me into a world that became quite rea [...]

    11. In progress The story starts out with a futuristic society as war with alien invaders always a popular theme It follows one young man to another world, and another society Still good science When he ends up on yet another world living among a people who live like primitives and live for warfare with swords, the story veers close enough to becoming fantasy that I was becoming concerned However, this story is one of the few that, though written in a fantasy style, I continue to enjoy And I have co [...]

    12. I have found my new Sci fi author If you enjoy books like Star Wars , Dune , or Anne McCaffrey s Dragons of Pern series, then you will absolutely LOVE Michael Hicks In Her Name Empire I was immediately sucked in from the first sentence and didn t want to put the book down to go to sleep Needless, to say, I was sad to reach the end of the book and have to surface to reality once The action fight scenes are realist and believable The plot did not drag or lose focus I can usually spot mistakes or [...]

    13. In the distant future, Reza Gard, an orphan of a horrific war with ruthless aliens, finds the courage to survive against desperate odds In doing so, he learns as much about his enemy, the Kreelans, as he does about inner strength Through trying circumstances, physical and mental stresses and the bitter loss of all he has ever known and loved, Reza grows from a child to a man As his understanding and abilities grow under the tutelage of the Kreelans who have captured him, he seems poised for a gr [...]

    14. I gave this book a chance and am left mind blown To say this story is epic is an understatement Reza s tale begins with the gripping battle his parents fight to defend their overrun city At only seven, he sees than any child should of brutality and loss He also faces the enemy with a bravery that is uncommon in adults We are taken through periods of his life and each grips you in a new way Everything he experiences is vivid and thus you cannot help but continue reading The decisions he must mak [...]

    15. I downloaded this book, Empire In Her Name free from BookBub With free e books, you take your chances on getting a good book This was surprisingly well written A cross between Star Wars and Avatar, the action starts on a dystopian planet of humans that is invaded by the Kreelans When Reza is taken as spoils of war to the planet of the Kreelans, he must learn their ways in order to survive The end was totally unexpected The book is part of a trilogy that I can t wait to finish Exciting, good char [...]

    16. This book is amazing, a definitely five star book.This is the first book in the In Her name series Most of the action of this book takes place in the Kreela Empire which is beautifully and very realistically described The story is very well written and it keeps you captivated all the time There is a lot of action plots in the book, but also it is touching and emotional What I really liked about Empire , is that you don t know where the story takes you, and what to expect on the next page.

    17. Fantastic world building, great characters, and a compelling story I wasn t sure, going into reading this one, how I would enjoy it and honestly, I m hooked The relationship between Reza and Esha isn t one you expect, especially seeing as her people see humanity as nothing than soulless animals The slow change of that viewpoint is one that Reza earns It s not given to him, it s not easy and not quick at all I m looking forward to reading the rest of the trilogy, which I already have loaded on m [...]

    18. I had a hard time reading this book, it is so bleak and terrible, I also must admit to being bore by the premise that sounds cookie cutter at best Hicks needs to get an editor to trimmed his sentences because this book has sentences in sentences I was also a little triggered by the child abuse, I understand it happens but can we not used words such as he grabbed her budding breast because that is just not right.

    19. 3.5 starsI thoroughly enjoyed this story The Kreelan story was incredibly interesting and Reza made for an entertaining lead I bought into the characters and the way of life It wasn t a really memorable story so I will keep the review brief I did read the sequels which really where not as good.

    20. Excellent read right up to the end after a slightly slow start Wonderful action adventure SciFi Fantasy tale of the clash of cultures human and alien Exciting, engaging and makes me want to read And so I shall since there is a sequel scheduled Read this on my new Kindle Fire and loved it.

    21. I m not really the Sword and Sorcery type of guy, but when you throw in spaces ships, a galactic war mixing it up with hard science fiction, I ll come along for the ride I really enjoyed, In her name empire I think I ll read the next two books in the trilogy I highly recommend this book.

    22. ExcellentThis is a well told story of the makings of a warrior.I could hardly wait for the next turn of events as the pages turned I loved this book and highly recommend it Its a joy to read.

    23. A real page turner I just couldn t put it down It grabbed me from the first chapter and kept me glued to it till I finally finished it.

    24. I stayed up late three nights to finish it on my tiny iPhone screen that being said, I m an insomniac due my in part to recent jet lag and tend to finish books movies I start after I get to a certain point I liked being taken to the kreelan world,how details were gradually unraveled, and enjoyed the unexpected development between Reza and the female warrior I was very invested in Reza s journey and want to read the next book to see how he copes, being torn between two worlds, wonder if he ll use [...]

    25. Overall, this was an enjoyable story that has non stop action, you can certainly relate to the main character but, even as someone who loves science fiction I had to scratch my head a little bit The rest of this review might be considered a slight spoiler, so if you are not so inclined I d recommend you stop reading now.One of the first things I called b.s on was you have this supposed super advanced civilization, yet on their home planet you see no signs at all of technology nor the promotion o [...]

    26. This book is way under recognized The storyline is flawless I mean, yes, it revolves around the effects of Stockholm Syndrome But, no one can deny the awesome marvellous plot around it A human in love with an Alien This should not only be in the sci fi section, but also the Romance section The novel shows alternate meaning of love The way the surroundings are described are beyond belief While reading, I felt as if I m watching a 3D movie, like the characters are going in and around me all the ti [...]

    27. Once againI review a book in the In Her Name series Once again I proclaim the whole series a masterpiece Empire is no exception This book explaining Her Way is one of the most exciting since the first book I shall not ruin it for you by telling what happens Know that Empire is a must read

    28. I wish I had your imagination.Your words made me feel I know the characters never existed but I wish they could have The only short coming was the lack of free will The story would have been captivating if the characters weren t forced to make all of their choices under threat of death.

    29. An excellent start to the second trilogy.Engaging from start to finish with twists and turns Despite the hints throughout the book as to what will happen next it is one of those books which you cannot put down Unpredictable and entertaining from a master of sci fi suspense.
