Inhaltsangabe

As a child Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man.

When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating - and waiting for suitable prey. Hoop and his associates uncover a nest of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on a new meaning. Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviors....

Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.

Nice story!

I'd love to get my hands (or ears maybe ;)) on the next two books.

Not recommended

While I appreciate the idea of trying to do an Alien novel for me this one failed spectacularly. The plot doesn't hold any big surpises (which is not necessarily a problem) but on top of that not even the narrative is presentent in a competent way. For one the book suffers from an overuse of common phrases and expressions - there's no creativity nor serious attempt to do something that has a live of its own here. Most of the characters are your standard rough and tough spacefaring blue collar workers - which would be fine if that hadn't been done in most of the iterations of the Alien franchise. Throw all of those protagonists into a blender, take out some of the mashed up characteristics and there you go, you've got your crew here. Neither Ripley's words nor actions line up with what you'd expect from her movie character (at least from Alien and Aliens) for most of the time. When they do the narrators impression of her will take you out of the story since, well, females done by him just sound like the most superficial sorority girls you can imagine. That does not help. At all. As I've said, I appreciate the attempt but I can't say anything good about this story.
