"Densely plotted and decidedly grown-up, this is YA fiction for readers who are bored of fluff and sparkles." (SFX Magazine (UK))
“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, NYT bestselling author of THE MAZE RUNNER)
"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 COVENANT and IMMORTAL)
"This novel is entertaining and addictive science fiction!” (RisingShadows.net)
“Conquest is over-flowing with originality, adventure and damn fine writing – fans and newcomers alike should be clamoring for it.” (BOLO Books)
“I wish everything in the science fiction genre was like The Chronicles.” (Bookreporter.com)

The story moves at a furious pace and makes i difficult to put down the book. The book moves around between places and characters but the way it does that is masterful, with focus shifts that don't ruin the immersion.
The book is pretty lean and, at times, it feels like there could have been more to it. It leaves you wanting more but that just speaks to how good it was.
Connoly's Charlie Parker series, although a different genre, also top notch
