In Her Name: Empire is the first book in the In Her Name Series that I downloaded for free. I am glad I did. Michael R. Hicks first introduces the hero, Reza Gard at the age of seven. His courage in the face of the enemy results in his survival and sets him on a life-altering course. He is principled, courageous, a born leader. We watch his development as an orphan in a work camp, as a “human” experiment on the extraterrestrial planet Kreela, as a warrior in training in the Kreelan Empire. Reza’s story is compelling, grabbing my attention and taking me along for the ride. Will he succeed in battle? Will he leave his human heritage and fully adopt the Kreelan Way? Will he gain respect from his tresh, his captor-trainer-partner and from the priestess and Empress? The story is fast paced, a real page-turner. It is an excellent read and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
