Conquest

Publisher: Headline Book Publishing

Review

Earth has been ruled by the beautiful, ruthless Illyri for 16 years. When Syl, the teenage daughter of the governor of Europe, chooses to celebrate her birthday by wandering the streets disguised as a human she finds herself caught up in the aftermath of an act of terrorism.

Later, the two human resistance fighters who saved her are condemned to death and she must risk her own life to try and save theirs. But with dark forces at work, it is possible that no-one will survive.

After a slow start, this futuristic fantasy blossoms into a multi-layered, nerve-jangling explosion of intrigue, deception and chilling ambition. Conquest is the first in the Chronicles of the Invaders series.
