In the third book of the In Her Name: Redemption trilogy, Reza Gard 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 taken prisoner. Captured and sentenced to death, Reza 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 he can reach the Empress in time...
If you’re new to the In Her Name series, here is the author’s recommended reading order:
The Last War Trilogy
— First Contact
— Legend Of The Sword
— Dead Soul
The Redemption Trilogy
— Final Battle
The First Empress Trilogy
— From Chaos Born
— Forged In Flame
— Mistress Of The Ages
It’s disappointing that the author simply couldn’t resist including depictions of sexual assault, just for the sake of it. The series was solid up until this book, but apparently the author had some sick fantasies he wanted to work out with his characters.
Great story, this is one of theBEST space novels I have ever read in 60 years. Keep up the great work.
The Hidden Gem of Science Fiction
One of the best series I’ve read, and I’ve read this trilogy at least 5 times as well as the other 2 trilogy’s . I highly recommend this series, I have no idea how it does not have a larger following due to the quality of the writing and how immersed you get into the book.
