Conquest by John Connolly and Jennifer Ridyard

Earth is no longer ours.  It is ruled by the Illyri, a beautiful, civilised yet ruthless alien species.  But humankind has not given up the fight, and Paul Kerr is one of a new generation of young Resistance leaders waging war on the invaders.

Syl Hellais is the first of the Illyri to be born on Earth.  Trapped inside the walls of her father’s stronghold, hated by the humans, she longs to escape.

But on her sixteenth birthday, Syl’s life is about to change forever.  She will become an outcast, an enemy of her people, for daring to save the life of one human: Paul Kerr.  Only together do they have a chance of saving each other, and the planet they both call home.

For there is a greater darkness behind the Illyri conquest of Earth, and the real invasion has not yet even begun…

For fans of The 5th Wave, the start of an epic new series set on an Earth ruled by an alien race.

Peer & Press Reviews

A striking novel, devoid of the usual Young Adult conventions and far better for it: from the choice of location to the complex and involving plot that defies the expectations of its target market, this is a novel that does not fear to take the reader to darker places than others of its ilk.  The strong characterisation of Steven, Peter and our heroine Syl make their extraordinary adventure all the more believable, and bring an often imagined future for humanity very much to life.  A brilliant beginning to what will no doubt become an epic series.

Dean Crawford, author of the Warner & Lopez series

Densely plotted and decidedly grown-up, this is YA fiction for readers who are bored of fluff and sparkles.

SFX Magazine

I love science fiction, I love solid, real characters, I love adventure, and I love to be continually surprised.  Conquest has all of this and more.  Feeling fresh from beginning to end, and written with a torrential, captivating pace, I highly recommend this book!

James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner
