Irish novelist, creator of the Charlie Parker series of novels, John Connolly has, at various points in his life, worked as a journalist, a barman, a local government official, a waiter and a dogsbody at Harrods department store in London. He studied English in Trinity College, Dublin and journalism at Dublin City University, subsequently spending five years working as a freelance journalist for The Irish Times newspaper, to which he continues to contribute.

Jennifer Ridyard was born in England and grew up in South Africa, where she worked as a journalist for many years. Conquest is her first novel.

"Earth is no longer ours. . . .

It is ruled by the Illyri, a beautiful, civilized, 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. "

'Conquest is a beautiful book, the first in a series, and one that should not be missed!' — The Guardian

'The writing is excellent, as I would expect . . . It's the little details, such as the young Illyri girls enjoying a cup of tea and a hobnob with the young resistance lads, and the fact that the Illyri appreciate Earth art and culture, that make this book such a delight to read.' — British Fantasy Society

'Densely plotted and decidedly grown-up, this is YA fiction for readers who are bored of fluff and sparkles.' — SFX Magazine — Irish Times

407 pages.
