With the fate of the world at stake, Syl and Paul battle the sinister forces of the Nairene Sisterhood in this second thrilling Chronicles of the Invaders novel from New York Times bestselling author John Connolly and Jennifer Ridyard that “should not be missed” (The Guardian).

The Illyri have conquered and occupied the Earth. The Resistance are nothing more than an annoyance to the alien race of superior technology and military strength. When caught, young rebels are forced to join the Brigades, sent to the edges of the growing Illyri Empire.

Paul Kerr is one such soldier—torn from his home and from his beloved Syl Hellais. She is the first alien child born on Earth, a creature possessed of unimaginable powers. Now Paul and Syl must endure the terrible exile that her race has deemed just punishment for their love. But the conquest of Earth is not all it seems. There is another species involved—the Others—and the Illyri will kill to keep its existence secret.

Light years from Earth and millions of miles apart, Paul and Syl must find a way to reveal the horrifying truth behind the Empire and save all that they hold dear from the hunger of the Others. Even at the cost of their own lives.
