Timothy Zahn, Hugo Award-winning author of The New York Times best-selling Star Wars trilogy, blazes a spectacular new path across the sky in an epic original novel of star-spanning action adventure, mystery and intrigue.  A long era of peace and prosperity in the interstellar Commonwealth has suddenly come to an end.  Four alien starships of unknown origin have attacked, without provocation, an eight-ship Peacemaker task force, utterly destroying it in six savage minutes.  The authorities claim there were no survivors.  But Lord Stewart Cavanaugh, a former member of Parliament, has learned through back channels that one man may have survived to be captured by the aliens:  his son, Commander Pheylan Cavanaugh.  A large-scale invasion appears imminent, and the strictest security measures are in effect . . . measures that Lord Cavanaugh has no choice but to defy.  He recruits Adam Quinn, who once flew with the elite Copperheads—fighter pilots whose minds are literally one with their machines—to rescue his son.  Quinn assembles a crack force of Copperheads to steal out of the Commonwealth security zone and snatch Pheylan Cavanaugh from the conquerors.  Depending on the outcome, Quinn and his men will retum home as heroes or as the galaxy's most despised traitors—if they come home at all.

Space opera with a soft underbelly. Still a decent read but doesn't compare in ideas, world-building or complexity to the space opera masters of the last decade.

This is one of my favorite trilogies by one of my favorite authors. The story catches your attention right from the start and never lets go. The writing is phenomenal and the characters are very well developed. I would recommend this to anyone, even my friends who are not into the sci-fy/fantasy side of writing enjoyed this. Give Zahn a chance and you won't regret it.

The Conquerer's series is one of the best series I have read. If you like Star Wars you'll like this fast paced novel told from both the humans and alien perspective. I LOVED IT!

It is a really great book and I suggest you read it but not buy it unless you are collecting.

I LOVED how Zahn wrote such detailed people (especially the Copperbacks).
