Overview

This trilogy collection contains the first three novels of the bestselling IN HER NAME science fiction & fantasy saga: EMPIRE, CONFEDERATION, and FINAL BATTLE...

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: This book was formerly titled "IN HER NAME (Omnibus Edition)".

EMPIRE

This 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.

CONFEDERATION

Banished from the Kreelan Empire, Reza is once again a stranger in a strange land as he returns to the human Confederation. Befriended by a marooned Confederation 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. 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.

FINAL BATTLE

Reza awakens in a hospital on Earth after having been in a coma for months. Charged with murder and high treason, he finds himself the scapegoat for a daring plot to assassinate the President of the Confederation. Escaping with the help of Jodi Mackenzie, who is now hunted for what she knows about the death of the president, Reza discovers that something is deeply wrong with the Empire: the warriors have lost their will to fight. Compelled to step into a trap set for him and Jodi, the two once again find themselves bound for Erlang. But this time it is to meet Tesh-Dar, who has been captured. When Reza and Jodi are taken prisoner and sentenced to death, they can only watch as a human armada gathers for a strike against the Kreelan homeworld. But the human fleet - and humanity itself - will be doomed to utter annihilation unless Reza can reach the Empress in time...

    Characters you can't forget.

    The author's gift is in creating SciFi worlds but grounding the story in the inter-dynamics of the characters. Hicks does such a good job in the characterizations of the main characters that they didn't leave me even when I wasn't reading the books. About midway through the series, the characters and story began to haunt me (in a good way). This is a very good series that I would recommend not only to SciFi junkies, but also to those who haven't read the genre before. It's well written with a very good pace. I read all three books within a week. Strongly recommended.

    Brilliant

    This book is well done excellent detail to the landscaping it takes my breath away just to imagine some of the scenes and places. And the characters are brilliantly done. When I read this series it makes me feel like I am right there next to them and I swear I can hear their voices, feel their emotions. I think this series is a must read for any science fiction collection. Also a brilliant tale of a coming of age hero where his actions have consequences. A must read for anyone.

    OK. I had determined in the first half of this book I
    really could not justify even a solid three star rating.
    It seemed repetitive and lacking in content. There was
    also profanity and I wasn't at all impressed with the
    writing..there was also a lot of typographical errors.
    This is a story of a cruel warring planet who is feared
    by confederations and all who dwell within.
    This is also a story about a young boy who repeatedly
    suffers because of this planet of cruel individuals.
    His life continues in chaos after being captured. He
    goes through much physical and emotional pain. He, also,
    evaluates and reevaluates his fate in life. He has to
    decide what course he should pursue.
    There is a scene with sexual content but doesn't become
    explicit.
    I, reluctantly, had to change my rating because the last
    half of the book was very profound and intense. It really
    left the reader hungry for the next book of the sequel.
    This novel is about survival, loyalty, honesty, honor,
    love, hate, friendship, wartime, fortitude and perseverance.
    This is primarily written for YA but I wouldn't recommend
    it for YA reading because of profanity and sexual content.

    Just finished the first 3 before this series and can hardly wait

    Just finished the first 3 before this series and can hardly wait to start the next 3 on my Nook, and it was so addictive! The flow of the writing just pulls you through the pages until you get to the end...way too soon! I've already recommended it to every one I know that enjoys this genre. Great job Mr. Hicks you have a true gift. Please, keep them coming!

    In Her Name: Empire by Michael R. Hicks was a real treat! I gobbled it up in two sittings and read until my eyes hurt. I was captured by the story within the first three pages and felt the struggle of the Protagonist as if it was my own. When I got to the end, I discovered I was angry. Angry that I hadn't purchased the next two books! It doesn't take rocket science to know what I'm going to read next. Great work Mr Hicks!!

    This tale started out slow and rapidly became difficult to put down! Fascinating story line. The idea of aliens has to be rethought after this!

    I have read this on the other popular e-reader, and here's my opinion. As far as the story goes, it just wasn't my cup of tea. I didn't fall in love with the characters and the storyline didn't draw me in. That said, it is very solidly written. Michael Hicks does an amazing job and I can understand all of the buzz this series gets. If you are into the military sci-fi scene, there is a good chance you will enjoy not only this books, but the entire series.

    Awesome

    I admit it. I was sucked into the story before Chapter One ended. The Good... Although the stakes never change (life or death every time) it feels like it does. It's not a matter of if Reza will survive; it's a matter of how and who will survive alongside him. Empire is rife with tension and conflict from beginning to end, forcing the reader to keep turning pages to see what happens next. The characters feel real and demand we pay attention to them. The Not-so-good... While the overall writing is captivating, there is quite a bit of head hopping to get used to. Even so, Hicks is able to pull it off with a minimum of jarring the reader. At times the descriptions of the Kreelan homeworld were more detailed than I like and I felt they dragged the story down. However, one expects a certain amount of world building in Science Fiction and Fantasy. I don't think the descriptions in Empire were excessive. The Overall... Loved this book. I highly recommend this for anyone remotely interested in Science Fiction.

    Really loved this book!

    Purchased the Omnibus as an ebook for my Samsung Epic and it was a great read for the price. I am soo happy that there are new Sci Fi writers like Michael Hicks out there. I am happily reading all his stuff. Had no trouble reading it on my Epic. I am a VERY fast reader so it did take a lot of flicks, but on my epic I was always able to take up where I stopped. Liked his writing soo much I have asked my local library to purchase the hard copy of his new book coming out!

    Don't buy the E-Book

    The digital book is horribly formated. Each paragraph requires a page flip (loading of a new subfile), no matter if it fills the screen or not (by the time I got frustated and gave up reading I had yet to have a paragraph fill more than 2/3 of my Droid screen and on the computer HA!). When the omnibus has over 6000 paragraphs and the flow of reading gets broken after each paragraph, I just could not finish the book. And what I read seemed really interesting.

    Currently in the process of converting the book to a different format. Even if it becomes readable I don't suggest purchase as it is to much trouble.
