Overview

For millennia before the bloody first encounter with humanity as told in FIRST CONTACT (In Her Name: The Last War, Book 1), the Kreelan race has been ruled by war. Countless civilizations have risen and fallen back into savagery, with total annihilation averted only by the warrior priests and priestesses of the ancient martial orders.

Near the end of the Fourth Age, a powerful warrior from a brooding fortress deep in the Great Wastelands began her bloody rise to power. Syr-Nagath, known as the Dark Queen, began a brutal war of conquest across the face of the Homeworld, secretly planning to destroy the martial orders and resurrect the dark ways of her race's apocalyptic past.

What the Dark Queen did not anticipate was the birth of Keel-Tath, a child unlike any other. A child foretold in an ancient prophecy, who was destined to wield the powers of the ancient orders and unite her race.

A child the Dark Queen must kill, no matter the cost...

A real good book

Having read both of the In Her Name trilogies, this prequil is somewhat of a let-down. The Empress is still a baby at the end, although we get her family history. More questions are asked than answered, but the story is compelling based on previous books so I will continue.

Another great start to another trilogy by Michael Hicks. It took me a few chapters to get into the book given the alien names but once the action starts you won't be able to put this down. Just like the two previous series, I bought the next book in the series and started it right away. Unfortunately the last volume isn't out yet. Hope we won't have to wait too long!
