I enjoyed this way than I thought I would It fits in nicely to the main storyline in the films and has some teasers in there also.

Alien (Canonical Alien trilogy, #1) By Tim Lebbon

This was a full cast production offered for free at Audible and I enjoyed it You do need to set aside every movie in this series after the original and that puts some constraints on the author who has to work within those guidelines I m not sure this would have worked as well for me in book form as ...

Alien (Canonical Alien trilogy, #1) By Tim Lebbon

Alien Out of the Shadows was a fast paced and action filled book I love the movies rewatched Alien yesterday and I was really looked forward to reading the book I wasn t sure how they would, or even if they would explain how Ripley could be in this story since it takes place between Alien and Aliens...

I wanted to like this.Supposedly taking place between the two films, Ellen Ripley is taken out of cryosleep sooner than what was revealed in Aliens 2 We go on another Alien adventure.I place a great store in originality in the books I like and while I knew that this was a series, or tie in, or whate...

4 stars for the story, 5 for the Audible production The performance was excellent, including all the sound effects, particularly the bleeps, the sweeps, and the creeps.

Alien (Canonical Alien trilogy, #1) By Tim Lebbon

Okay, wow Where to begin This is going to be wordy.I m first to admit I read some trashy Fantasy Sci Fi I m a sucker for a good sword, spell or space ship I normally steer far far away from Franchise stuff though, because its usually spitting distance away from fan fiction on the internet I m an una...
