Overview

The Conquest (Saucer Series #2) by Stephen Coonts

Someone is using top-secret information about saucer technology, information that comes from the mysterious top-secret region in Nevada known as Area 51. Meanwhile, Charley takes up flying space planes to the moon for the French lunar base project. There she discovers a madman and a world-threatening antigravity beam…

When Charley sees how high the stakes are, she needs the kind of help that only Rip can bring her—by prying his saucer out of the hands of the U.S. Government and hurtling it toward the moon...

A furious duel is in the offing between a megalomaniac bent on the conquest of Earth and a handful of runaway heroes. As a plot that reaches back 50 years explodes, a horrific weapon is trained on the Earth's cities; humankind is dragged to the brink and offered a fearsome choice: surrender or death...

There are two books in this series: Saucer and Saucer the Conquest. Steven is currently writing the third and probably final book of the series due out April 2014. I have found this book one of the most enjoyable I've ever read... Along with the original "Saucer" book. Make sure you read "Saucer" first before reading "The Conquest"... You'll be able to understand the characters better.

After the adventures in SAUCER, Rip Cantrell and his girlfriend Charley Pine donated the flying saucer to the Air and Space Museum. A bored Charley accepts Pierce Artois¿ offer to pilot a space plane to the moon to bring supplies to the station being built there. While she is on the space plane, Charley notices inside a locked compartment an object marked with a radioactive warning label; nothing on the manifest indicates that anything radioactive is on the ship......................... On the moon, Artois and his associates are building a mysterious machine that disturbs Charley. She soon learns that they are constructing an antigravity beam that will destroy anything in its path even from the distance to earth. Artois wants to be emperor of the world and he has a good chance of succeeding. Charley hijacks a space plane and returns to earth. She and Rip steal back the donated saucer so that they can try to destroy Artois¿ fleet leaving him stranded on Luna, rescue his abducted uncle, and ultimately obliterate the weapon of mass destruction......................... SAUCER: THE CONQUEST is a rip roaring space adventure novel filled with a dashing hero and a courageous female champion, vile villains ready to commit genocide for power, and numerous space battles that make Star Wars look like a romance. Rip is a modern day Flash Gordon leaping from one adventure into another while Charley is the only person who can out leap Rip yet keep him somewhat on an even keel. Gifted Stephen Coonts provides an innovative yet in some ways old fashioned space tale that will appeal to anyone who enjoys the Star war sagas........................ Harriet Klausner

The continuing story of the saucer enigma. The main characters bond together to eliminate a worldwide threat against humanity. Mr. Coonts was definitely reaching for this one! I purchased this second installment because I was somewhat impressed with the first. However, "Conquest" is a ridiculous story with totally unbelievable characters and events. I think the author was trying to write a James Bond scenario that fell way short of any timeline interpretations. Although it is an interesting read, it's value is subjective and relevant only to the continuation of the lives of the main characters and the ideology of the saucer technology.

I read this immediately after the first book and it was just as entertaining. I recommend it.

The first book in the series was entertaining. This book just became silly. The plot was all over the place and somewhat predictable. The "science" in the fiction was ridiculous from the physics to the biology. It did not leave me with any interest in reading the third book in the series.

Old yet fun topic on have aliens visited us a long, long time ago; and did they seed earth which is how we originated here, or is there intelligent life out there that looks like us? A fun and easy read.

Stephen Coonts is a favorite author but this book is a departure from his normal genre. He spins and weaves a good tapestry and his characters are believable. This is a reccommended read, it will not disappoint.

the first book was a light space opera romp, and i had hoped this would continue the story. unfortunately the secondary and tertiary characters in this sequel are as developed as a three year old and shallow as paint. they are cartoonish in their response and actions. i regret not stopping at the first book and will not be buying the third.

By chance, I came across Stephen Coonts' Saucer series and found Sauce and Saucer: The Conquest to be delightful reading. The story line is quite different from his other novel and yet very enjoyable. I would recommend this as a good read.  I am looking forward to reading the third and final book in this series. - Alison Sing, Lynnwood, WA
