Smashwords book reviews by Anthony Gillis

  • Empire (In Her Name: Redemption, Book 1) on June 07, 2012

    An amazing read! The hero, Reza Gard, comes of age in the midst of an interstellar war between humanity and the warlike Kreelan Empire. It takes some surprising turns which I will leave to the reader to discover, but will say that the Kreelans are simultaneously very alien and yet comprehensible, even sympathetic. This one grabbed my attention immediately and kept it. I look forward to reading the next two books in the trilogy!
