I would recomend this to anyone, but if you can read Annihilation books 1-3 first.
Cosmic Nerd
Also entering the fray are some of Marvels classic cosmic characters assembled by the Kree to stave off the Phalanx invasion.
Grant
This book has half the story, but with this many characters, creators and stories the results are inconsistent.

Annihilation Conquest is, in my opinion, even better than the first Annihilation Saga. Marvel has assembled a grand collection of previously defunct, Bronze Age cosmic characters to battle a new threat of cosmic proportions.

In the wake of devastation caused by the "Annihilation Wave", the galaxy is in turmoil and easy prey for another attack. And the evil techno race known as The Phalanx are more than happy to oblige. On one front is Moondragon and Phyla-Vell, daughter of Captain Mar-Vell and the new Quasar.

Also entering the fray are some of Marvels classic cosmic characters assembled by the Kree to stave off the Phalanx invasion. This eclectic group of Bronze Age cosmic veterans includes Starlord, Mantis, Rocket Raccoon, Captain Universe, the Space Knights and Groot, the giant talking tree from Planet X. Also turning up after a long absence is Adam Warlock. Together they take on the Phalanx and those the Phalanx now control, including an army of near indestructible "Sentries" and The Super Adaptoid.

The "Starlord" segment by Keith Giffen is one of the coolest stories I have read in some thirty years of reading comics. Regardless of how familiar one is with the characters is irrelevant. This is a very entertaining read. However, if you, like me have been reading comics since the early 70s, you'll be very happy to see these characters again and the story will be even more rewarding.
Forget Civil War, forget World War Hulk, forget Secret Invasion and forget the death of Captain America. Marvels cosmic epics are where the real action is. A lot of fun. Highly recommended.

Note: I actually read the hardcover edition of this story, but everything in this TPB is the same. The only difference is the soft cover and smaller price!

Picking up where the last Annihilation event left off, this book keeps the focus on Marvel's stable of galactic heroes and villains. For sci-fi fans, it's likely to be the best you're going to get from Marvel. Luckily, it's pretty good. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning continue to steer Marvel's galactic characters to places they've never gone before, and it turns out to be a pretty good ride. Back from the first Annihilation event are Nova, Ronan, Ravenous, Kl'rt the Super Skrull, the Supreme Intelligence, Drax and Moondragon. New central players include Starlord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Bug, the new Quasar - Phyla-Vell, Mantis, the Phalanx empire, and Wraith - a brand new character who's very interesting and very powerful in his own right.

Book 1 focuses on Quasar and Starlord and the conquest of the Kree Empire by the techno-organic race, the Phalanx. Marvel's cosmic scene has really changed a lot in the past few years.

Dan abnett is a writing genius. The only terrible story in this entire series is Quasar. Her story focuses way way too much on homosexual love and less about her main story. Other then that Starlord's story is incredible and i love the rag tag group of heroes that join up against the phalanx.

This is a must have book series for anyone and a great starting point for anyone who wants to get into the Guardians of the Galaxy.

The next book in Marvel's epic cosmic adventures is really good. The art overall is solid but not spectacular. The cover art is spectacular. The plot of the Conquest is a good one and the next book in the series looks really good and this has whetted my appetite for it. The Starlord centered half of the book was my favorite because it a great collection of characters that will turn into the Guardians of the Galaxy. Rocket Raccoon is somehow cool. Groot was hilarious and Mantis was better here than in any Avenger story. The Quasar back half was not as good but still entertaining. Fun stuff!
