*** Competition: WIN one of 15 proof copies of Conquest by John Connolly and Jennifer Ridyard

If you like YA or adult science fiction then this may be the competition for you. Thanks to the lovely people at Headline I have fifteen (yes, you read that right 15) copies of the proof of Conquest, a fab new book by John Connolly (yes, he of the Charlie Parker series and the Samuel Johnson vs the Devil trilogy) and Jennifer Ridyard.

Here's the blurb:

CONQUEST is the first instalment in the Chronicles of the Invaders series, an epic new science fiction series for teenagers written with by Sunday Times bestselling author John Connolly and his partner, Jennifer Ridyard.

Described by Connolly as “an adventure novel, with an extended chase scene at its heart”, it is inspired by the novels of John Wyndham, as well as classic science fiction films including John Carpenter’s The Thing, Ridley Scott’s Blade
Runner and Alien and Invasion of the Body Snatchers. With a strong female and male protagonist, the series will appeal to both a male and female teenager readership as well as adult fans of crossover fiction and science fiction.

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...

  1. UK residents only :( (Able to make an exception for the Commonwealth? Haha!) Nah. It's okay. I saw this in the catalogue from publisher at work and really want to read this. A good mix of The Fifth Wave and The Lorien Legacies which sounds amazing!
