Ok Alien fans this is an awesome book that I recommend if you loved Alien, Aliens, Alien3 & Prometheus.

It starts out on LV-178 , it takes place right after Alien & man is it a rush non stop from beginning to end!

It has everything you want in a Alien movie you could want. I don't want spoil to much here but lets say Ripley was not the only survivor from Alien. It has a new alien race , miners and crazy heart stopping action.

so many aliens, facehuggers , and I don't want to say much more only that I highly recommend you read or listen to this book.

I am 100% sure you guys will live it!

Also add that the Engineers are not the only ones who have a backstory with the aliens. This book adds alot of new lore to alien species. So much so that it makes me wonder about Alien Covenant.

It also connects to Alien isolation as well.

It was interesting for sure. It sets up the Xeno genetic grudge.

Safe? Of course he isn't safe, but he's good!

so after looking things up about this book on line , I have come to find out it is indeed canon as stated by 20th Century Fox.

That made my day and my lore on the Aliens universe alot bigger.

The digital version is less than $5 on Amazon (the book; not the audio drama). If you sign up at Audible I think you get your first audio book free.

Will have to look into this.

Wonder if its close to a Story i working on over a year ago that i had basic Synopsis and ideas for but i then failed to finish as far as actually detailed book.

My book was going to be Alien: Unearthed or Alien: Ascension

Basically a World a group of W-Y employees about the time of Alien had gone to, in order to Mine for Minerals etc, they detect some kind of Material they have not discovered before, potentially a new Metal Element.

So they begin to set up shop and start to dig near a Volcano, then we have a incoming ship with more recruits to help and they get there just as the others lose contact with some workers.

They go in and find dead bodies, they go further in and find a cave system and the ceilings and walls have like Spores in them, kind of like a Honey Bee Hive as far as Holes in the Walls that contain Spore like Cocoons like Gremlins and some of these are then hanging from a like slime and a tendon...

One of these then falls and opens up to reveal a Octopus like Face Hugger,  They latter encounter Aliens that are different to in Alien and more like a bit like unused Newborn from Alien R crossed with similar to the Prometheus Fresco

They find also Engineer dead body, long dead.

They try to blow up this cave, and it then causes a Earth Quake and it reveals a Buried Derelict they explore it and awaken a Engineer who then kills some of them and a Alien and then he gets Face Hugged and we get a Alien thats similar to the Prometheus Fresco.

They then escape after trying to blow up the Derelict and it then causes a Volcanic Eruption once again burying the place.

It would have been ambiguous a bit to tease...

"i wonder if this is where they got Face Hugged by some organism that leads to the Frescos in Prometheus, and they then Re-weaponized and experimented on this.

So it was my attempt to maybe explain the Xeno origin but in  way that only teases a I WONDER IF and not to exactly say this is what came first.

It was left ambiguous to why the Engineers was there...

To collect the Organism?

To mine for Ore that they use in their Technology and found the Organism?

Oh it was not set on LV-426...  but a place far away.. i had not figured yet what the Worlds was called or how far away but i was thinking a good 200LY maybe more and it would be set between the years 2125 and 2145

I hope that the only AWAKENING we are in for is FOX/RS wake up and learn from their mistakes.

i just finished it. It's pretty good, but it's really hard for me to believe it takes place between "Alien" and "Aliens". The classic "memory wipe"...

You could see it coming a mile away, and what she forgets is a teensy bit too convenient, but at least the process was actually given a sensible context.

I am very happy we have more books to read, Alien Out Of The Shadows was great. I wish they made a movie out of it. To see those new aliens they talked about, that new ship as well. Just a lot of new information.

@Ali81, I dont have River of Pain but sounds like its a blast.

 

Mine are audibles though, I like to go jogging at least an hour daily and listen to the audible. Keeps me motivated and hooked!

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
