    One thought on “From Chaos Born”

    1. Despite the fact that Mr. Hicks says that you can go into this novel not having read any of the previous novels I have to sincerely disagree. Now, do you have to have read all of them? No. But I think having read In Her Name: Empire saved me from being completely confused. There are a lot of cultural references for the Kreela that if you have not read anything before might seem confusing, especially their almost brutal form of life in such an advanced race.For me this hurt the book none at all. [...]

    2. Rating 4.5 starsUnlike the other six books in the series I consider In Her Name: From Chaos Born a fantasy with some elements of sci-fi. The book is packed with action and keeps you hooked from the beginning to the end, but I would have liked to learn more about Kreelan culture (maybe in the next book). I really liked the fact that Kreelan race was capable of handling advanced technology but they prefer the simple life on the daily basis.

    3. It had been a long time since I read science fiction, but I decided to expand my reading to new genres and picked up Empire (In Her Name: Redemption, #1) by Michael R. Hicks. I found it to be a wonderful blend of epic fantasy and sci fi.So read it, loved it, and immediately bought Confederation, and Final Battle.Michael Hicks created the world of Earth after it had taken to space, having built far-flung, loose colonies that behaved similar to our own nations here on Earth - mistrusting, not nece [...]

    4. With this book, if it wasn't for the author's engaging style of writing, it would would have ended up on my abandoned pile. There were many things that really bugged me. For instance, here we have an alien race capable of interstellar travel, yet on their planet they travel around on the backs of animals without the use of the wheel (and every time these beasts are mentioned, they are being ridden to death). But what I hated most of all was that this book ended in such a way that you know there [...]

    5. 7th Time a WinnerHave been waiting a long time to start The First Empress Trilogy this was especially difficult considering how much I loved The Redemption Trilogy and The Last War Trilogy. These books rank up there with Tolkien's Lord of the Ring trilogy and Asimov's Robot series. Totally engrossing. I read this book in one sitting. So much for waiting. This is probably the best of the 7 books I have read so far. Can't wait to see how Keel-Tath evolves into the Empress that turns the Kreel into [...]

    6. Another great book from this author! Solid entry, exitement, battles, but not too much battles. For sci fi and fantasy - fans alike!

    7. Only in Norwegian so far - sorryJeg har ventet i spenning på Hicks' nye Sci-Fi/Fantasy bok i "In Her Name" serien, og glad ble jeg da jeg ble bedt om å editere "From Chaos Born". Boka er den syvende i serien, men i tid utspinner historien seg lenge før første boka "Empire" og veldig lenge før menneskene kom inn i bildet.Først litt om bokaKreelan rasen er i konstant og uendelig krig mot hverandre, noe annet liv kjenner de ikke til. Kampene går mellom konger og dronninger om landområder og [...]

    8. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three- [...]

    9. The In Her Name series continues with a new trilogy, the first book of which is "From Chaos Born". The story takes place thousands of generations in the past when the Kreelan people were still fragmented and their society living through cycles of death and rebirth as technology outpaced their social development.Without giving too much away the events in the book expand upon the histories of the Desh-Ka priesthood and the Kreelan Empress as told in the previous six novels and we begin in the time [...]

    10. From Chaos Born is the first book in the third trilogy that Michael R. Hicks has done in the In Her Name series and is a prequel that takes us back to the time of the first empress of the Kreelan civilization to observe the beginning of the changes to the Kreelan culture and honor system that will eventually lead them to human space far in the future. I really enjoyed it and it was interesting to see the societal struggles that this race faced as it was developing and reaching for the stars in a [...]

    11. I really enjoyed 'From Chaos Born'. It's dark, it's raw, and it's ruthless in its depiction of the beginnings of the Kreelan Empire. Its a precursor to Author Michael Hicks's other works, but released afterwards - so more like a prequel of sorts, or better yet a primer on what to expect in the other books. The characters are put together well, and not having read the other works, I felt the plot was engaging.As anyone that has read my reviews knows, I am a stickler for what I call 'polish' on a [...]

    12. From the first page until the last page, From Chaos Born (The First Empress, Book 1) (In Her Name 9) by Michael R. Hicks, grabbed me by the seat of my pants and would not let me go. This action packed, sci-fi book will take your breath away.The author did an excellent job of developing a storyline that was realistic and fast paced. It was full of plot twist and turns which kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next. I really liked the author's style of storytelling, it made the tale co [...]

    13. From Chaos Born is the first in the In Her Name: The First Empress Series by Michael R. Hicks. Written after the other books in the series, it describes the rise of the Dark Queen, Syr-Nagath. As she goes about conquering her Homeworld, Kunan-Lohr, a great warrior and master of the city Keel-A'ar asks for permission to go on leave from battle to return home for the birth of his child. Syr-Nagath only grants him permission if he agrees to mate with her.When his daughter, Keel-Tath is born, she is [...]

    14. "In Her Name: From Chaos Born" has proven to be another great read from Michael Hicks. I found the background information to the other books in the series to be flawless and meshed perfectly into the story line. Having the beginning of a story line presented towards the end of a series (just in case other books are written) seemed odd at first glance, however I found that the books I had already read made understanding this one much easier. If this had been presented at the first of the series i [...]

    15. Though I gave this five stars, I do have to say I didn't like this quite as much as the In Her Name Redemption series, but that could just be because after being blown away by Redemption, my expectations were REALLY high. But not to fear, this first book in The First Empress delivers. I love that he explores the different key times in his worlds history, each series has such a different feel, yet it is all tied together by an overlying story. All the characters are amazing, be they Kreelan or Hu [...]

    16. Im reading these books too fast! Im very pleased with how he continues to evolve the story and im much happier on the alien world as opposed to the human one. The story is much like his first book and is a breath of fresh air. Ill be deeply saddened when the series comes to an end for me. I wish there was one more trilogy about the Kreelans to dive into. The In Her Name books are the only ive read by this author so perhaps ill give some of his other works a try after this, you wont regret gettin [...]

    17. Got the first book free from , and after I finished, I immediately bought the second. A (non-human) warrior race that thrives on war and destruction has defined a "Way," that they may pursue the lusts that drive them and not accomplish their extinction as species. But then something happens that changes everything!Bhahaha. Anyways, if you enjoy sci-fi or fantasy, read this. The author is so sure you'll like it he offers the first book of each of his series for free. (If you can't find it, check [...]

    18. Another winner! Once again Michael Hicks has transported me to the Kreelan world and created characters that I understood and cared about, and enemies that I wanted to throttle. This is book seven, of the In Her Name series but takes us back thousands of years to a time before Kreelans and humans interacted. The story chronicles the birth of Keel-Tath, a child of prophecy and destined to be a powerful ruler of her world, and of those who want her destroyed. I read this in two days and I highly r [...]

    19. After finishing the previous trilogy, I didn't think I had any interest in reading this last trilogy. However, the book was free and I figured I had nothing to lose by reading it (other than time). I'm happy to say that I'm glad I did read it. Like all of the others, the name game can be challenging, but the story is well written. I found it difficult to put down, there's always something going on to keep you attentive and wanting more. I'm really looking forward to finishing the series.

    20. Michael R. Hicks continues to develop his Kreelan back story, this time delving into the beginning of new timeline in which women are the only functioning members of society. This traces back to the birth of Keel-Tath and the uprising of the Dark Queen, whose only apparent desire is the destruction and reconstruction of her race. The key figure is a one-armed priest who follows his own advice despite the consequences. Definite must-read for the In Her Name fan.

    21. Another great book from Mr Hicks, the seventh book in the "In her name" series, the story jumps back a few thousand years to tell the story of Keel-Tath and the founding of the Kreelan Empire, this book is more fantasy than Sci-Fi, but still a great read, for anyone who likes Science fiction this is a must.The book can be read as a stand alone, but i'd recommend reading the rest of the books first, one of the best stories I've read.

    22. The start of the THIRD Trilogy about the Kreelan civilazation and Mr. Hicks continues to give the 1st book of each series for free hoping you'll buy the followons in the e-book world. I certainly have! While it's good for you to read the books in order they do work alone. My ONLY complaint is the strange naming convention he uses making it TOUGH to keep up with who is who! Another good read and an excellent young author. Enjoy!

    23. I resent switching to e-readers, but since being disabled with more time than money on my hands, I read a lot of free books through bookpub. I am a sci fi fan who tends to stick to hard science. Michael Hicks From Chaos Born and his other Book Ones in the Kreelan/Empress series opened my mind. I read the first in each series, bought a Kindle, joined his email list, and bought the nest two books in the First Empress set and will be buying the other two series soon.

    24. Another triumph in the In Her Name series from Mr. Hicks. From Chaos Born keeps the reader engaged and on the virtual edge of his or her seat from the outset. World war, intrigue, betrayal, love, and honor are all explored within the pages of this exciting continuation of the saga.Anxiously awaiting the next installment, Michael. Hope you're hard at work.

    25. I started this book last night about 8:30, and then just kept on reading until I finished. Loved it! Michael Hicks had a wonderful ability to suck you right into the story, to where you just keep turning the pages to find out what will happen next.I can't wait for the next book in this series to be released!

    26. I have read almost all of Michael Hicks other books, but have not yet felt compelled to move on beyond the first element of this series. Perhaps I have had enough of the Kreelan Empire. Perhaps I think I already know where this story is going and where it is going to end. Perhaps it will be really hard to outdo the "In Her Name" trilogy, especially while casting more stories in the same universe.

    27. I did not think I would be interested in this "prequel" to the previous series but I loved it and started reading the next, Forged in Her Name, right away. Usually, with series, I give it some time before reading the next. Not this one.

    28. Wonderful story & actually individual & unique! Loved it. I've now read the whole series & couldn't wait to find out what happened to all the characters, especially the one alien that follows through the whole series. Wonderful.

    29. Another fantastic hit by Michael R Hicks! Really love the In Her Name series. Every book has been a joy to read. Such wonderful characters and always a fantastic story.Thank you for sharing them with us!

    30. I just enjoy the Michael Hicks series. This 'prequel' to the other books in the series explains how the Kreela developed into the warrior culture and how they became cursed. If you like this type of writing -science fiction/fantasy -, you will like this book.
