Overview

Six months after the alien Kreelan Empire launched its invasion of human space, the Confederation of Humanity, a coalition of human worlds banding together for self defense, is rapidly growing.

Unfortunately, not all human worlds want to join the Confederation. Some, like Saint Petersburg, don't believe the tales of alien invaders, and think that the formation of the Confederation is nothing more than a veil over Earth's expansionist ambitions. With a powerful navy built in secret and armed with nuclear weapons, Saint Petersburg is preparing to launch their own offensive against Earth before the Confederation becomes too powerful.

Commander Ichiro Sato, captain of the Confederation heavy cruiser Yura, is part of the fleet the Confederation sends to preempt Saint Petersburg's attack. Drawn into a deadly trap, the Confederation fleet and its Marines are fighting for their lives when Kreelan warships, led by the enigmatic warrior priestess Tesh-Dar, materialize out of hyperspace.

As Tesh-Dar and her warriors wreak havoc on the two human fleets and Saint Petersburg itself, Ichiro, Roland Mills, and a Confederation spy known as SCARLET are faced with desperate choices from which they learn the true meaning of sacrifice.

I started this series at the beginning and bought every book after (2 were free). The series and especially this book lead you around every which way, hanging on every word to find out what happens next. The only thing I dislike about the series is that some of the grammer and words are out of sync. You learn to read "around" it, but as I've discovered with a lot of self published or nook books in general, there isn't a ton of grammer checking before it gets to the masses. A good read, a wonderful series, and I'm waiting for the next product from this author.

A true page-turner and we find out more about the Kreelans. There are still more questions unanswered but looking for the in Dead Soul. This is a great trilogy well worth the time and money!

A great second volume in the Last War series that sets the stage for the final resolution to the century-long war of survival between humans and the Kreela

I have read the Trilogy The Last War and enjoyed it very much. I just started on the first book in the next (or first) trilogy of In Her Name, "Redemption". The author makes the characters very likable and the story compelling. I am enjoying the read very much.

The books are long but the pages turn quickly as you get wrapped up in the adventure of man's survival against the Kreelans. Three different series that are best read in order but you can keep the thread if you read one before the other. Enjoy!
