They have cheated death.
Defied their people.
Changed beyond recognition.
Their love has survived the impossible.
But now they must learn to trust again:
the future of their worlds depends on it.
I’ve really loved this series and now it has drawn to a close with ” Dominion” I am actually quite distraught. It has been entirely brilliant start to finish, engaging, intense, amazing characters and a gorgeously imagined mythology. I can only hope that these two writers do more together. Oh if wishing made it so…
I’m not going to talk too much about plot because I’m sure that there are readers out there still to discover this series – but in basic terms we have an Earth run by alien conquerers, a rebellion, a trip around a few other planets, a bit of a love story, a LOT of adventure and some magical writing that just makes the whole thing beautifully addictive.
One thing that struck me about The Chronicles of the Invaders as a whole was the way John Connolly and Jennie Ridyard layered the plot, adding new levels and intrigue with every book, building the story in a quite superb way towards a tense, bang on satisfying conclusion. Dominion was pretty godarn perfect, even though things happened that made me want to throw shoes at the authors (its ok they have a suitable amount of distance and my aim is terrible) – this is also a series that I will return to and read again, because it is one of those where you will find added joy in seeing things unfold whilst knowing what is coming.
Overall it has been a fantastic reading experience. A very adult young adult series with thought provoking themes running throughout, some truly incredible world building and some unforgettable characters.
