Author Michael R. Hicks, In Her Name Trilogy

download free

In the first book of an epic futuristic fantasy trilogy, this is the 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.

 

FROM THE AUTHOR: I want you to download and read a copy of my novel In Her Name: Empire (Book 1 of the In Her Name series) – for free.

Yes, you read that right. For free, with absolutely no strings attached. And it’s not a crap read, either, but you don’t have to take my word for it: just take a look at the reader reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes. http://authormichaelhicks.com/free-novel/

Why is doing this? Just giving away an entire novel to as many people as I can? Because he wants to give you a real chance to see if you like my work beyond the short samples you might typically get from an online store or by thumbing through a paperback in a bookstore.

He is confident that by the time you get through Empire, you’re going to want to read the rest of the books in the series and, I hope, you check out all of Michael R. Hicks other books, like Season Of The Harvest.

Perhaps most importantly, if you like Empire, I’m hoping you’ll tell your friends about it, because an author’s best “advertising” is word of mouth, from reader to reader.

From Linda: This is such a great idea I think I may do this for my first book in the Gifts of Dawn … post a comment and tell me how you feel about this. Over the years I have been given many first books I think of everyone as a gift.

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. But nothing could prepare them for what fate has in store. For they have entered the domain of the Kreelan Empire, which has waited thousands of years to find another spacefaring race against which to wage war to honor their Empress.

With all but one of the crew killed in bloody close combat, the aliens send Aurora home bearing the sole survivor: the Messenger, a young crewman who carries with him an alien artifact that is humanity’s only sign of how much time remains until they are plunged into an interstellar war

In the second book of the In Her Name trilogy, Reza Gard has been banished from the Kreelan Empire and is once again a stranger in a strange land as he returns to the human Confederation.Befriended by a marooned naval officer leading a desperate fight against the Kreelans on a distant colony world, she reunites Reza with Nicole Carré. With their help, he fulfills his childhood dream of becoming a Confederation Marine as he befriends Eustus Camden, who becomes his best friend and ally.

Reza will need all the help he can get, for dark forces are at work at the heart of the Confederation, and Reza becomes a pawn in a lethal power struggle that leads him back to the planet Erlang.

There, a heartbreaking reunion awaits him, along with the discovery of an ages-old power that the Kreelan Empire will stop at nothing to control.
