Sintesi dell'editore

The official prequel leading into the upcoming Aliens cooperative third-person survival shooter video game, Aliens: Fireteam, from Cold Iron Studios.

Dr. Timothy Hoenikker arrives on Pala Station, a Weyland-Yutani facility. Lured there by the promise of alien artifacts, instead he finds a warped bureaucracy and staff of misfits testing the effects of Xenomorph bio-materials on living creatures. Unbeknownst to the personnel, however, there is an infiltrator among them whose actions could spell disaster.

Also on staff is Victor Rawlings, a former marine who gathers together other veterans to prepare for the worst. As the personnel receive a delivery of alien eggs, the experiments spin out of control, and only the former Colonial Marines can stand between the humans and certain death.

Good story, but narration needs work.

Bronson Pinchot is- very slowly- getting out of his annoying habit of reading the Alien books like an ASMR artist.

Really good story

Amazing story! Probably one of the best books in this series. One complaint though… There better be a sequel and it better talk about the end of this book because it was pretty abrupt leaving us all on a cliffhanger.

Why am I not surprised everybody died.

I am so sick and tired of these writers that write for this genre.. Everybody dies the xenomorphs are insurmountable no one ever has the number for the xenomorphs the xenomorphs have everybody else's number. It's the same old story battle of attrition last man standing last 2 standing blah blah blah. Start coming up with some good stuff how about there is something in the universe that's the answer to the Xenos and I'm not just talking about the predators or better known as Yatuja. There is no such thing as something that's completely top dog even Tigers if they run into lions can't get hurt and vice versa. Where is the tiger for the lion that is a xenomorph? Create all these wonderful characters make us love them then kill them you guys suck! Do some better work or I'm gonna give up on this franchise altogether. I won't even watch a new alien movie ever. It's the same old garbage.

Intriguing possibility….

Spoilers ahead!

I think the latest outpouring of Alien books have been really enjoyable for fans of the creature and the genre. I wasn’t expecting high art or much more than rehashes with some spins, but “The Cold Forge” was an absolute rockstar entry that might very well be the next trilogy, if not movies, then in some format other than books.

It was apparent the way this ends on a cliffhanger, that *something interesting* was definitely happening on the other, unknown parts of the ship(s), but the concept of an albino Alien somehow being…”extra,” by virtue of the “black goo,” had me enthused about how the species might evolve to become even more challenging, and by that extension, even scarier.

“Alien 3” tickled that, but never really hit it out of the park, the same way “Alien: Resurrection” had some really great ideas, but the tone was kind of all over the place (but, it was certainly pretty to look at).

This book holds that kind of frustration for me. I would have given it 4 stars or more, if the albino had a payoff, but it doesn’t, not after building it up with such an intriguing possibility. Of course, the cloaking capability of the other was equally fascinating, but again, neither build up to a payoff where their unique abilities mean anything.

These stories are parables about how humankind thinks it has everything under control, until it doesn’t. They’re also parables about greed. However, one can only keep (ironically) milking the same idea (think: Jaws), before one-upping whatever came before, just pushes them into absurdity, and they lose meaning, credibility, and therefore, the ability to frighten.

Which is why this book and “Aliens: Into Charybdis” (the sequel to “Aliens: “The Cold Forge”), are so frustrating. They’re on the right path, slowly evolving the mythos into something larger and weaving in something new, fresh, and that makes the creature of collective nightmares that much more impossibly frightening.

But instead of going for that brass ring, perhaps the studio heads or whomever really holds the rights to this IP, throttle it from changing too much.

I don’t know if it’s because we’re supposed to anticipate Ridley Scott completing this film series as his magnum opus (he’s not got that much time), or what, but it’s not difficult to figure out what happens with David and the crew of “Alien: Covenant.”

Maybe the sequel to this will redeem it, but that should not be necessary, because there were already 2-3 great ideas here already.

Either wrap that old canon up, or let some new blood come in and complete a new vision of what might frighten us in the cold darkness.

Average.

A lack of tension, with generally unlikable characters makes for a overall boring listening experience. Bronson Pinchot is a fine voice to carry the story, and I enjoyed him. Story had some interesting ideas, which I'd like to have seen worked out, but I suspect that whoever holds the authors leash wouldn't want to ruin future cash grabs by committing to any satisfying answers. Also, on a related note, this is a video game tie in, so it feels like that at times. Maybe we'll see someone with passion for the Franchise like Andrew Gaska offer up a better story in the future.

Extremely disappointing

I know the Alien books aren't exactly literary master pieces, but a lot of them are fun and entertaining reads. This is the only one I've actively disliked. The story and characters are beyond generic. The main character is inconsistent and simply unlikeable. The pacing is poor. Worst of all is the dialogue which falls between cheesy and cringey. There's no sense of horror or terror, it all comes off as flat. I will add the narrator did a good job with what he had. Avoid this and grab the cold forge or phalanx instead.

another great Aliens story

I really enjoyed the story and another excellent narration by Pinchot, he was excellent with phalanx and didn't disappoint here either.

Further expansion into the Aliens Universe.

I always enjoy venturing into the Aliens Universe with a new story and meeting new characters and Xenomorphs. Weyland Yutani experimenting on Xenomorphs, what could possibly go wrong??? The build up towards it all going inevitably wrong was a little slow but this didn't bother me. A good prequel story before the release of Aliens: Fireteam.

needs a second part!

The story leaves it open, this is due to it laying the foundations for a new game. I hope in time, as what happened with Alien isolation, a story based on the game will happen.

Bizarre voices, disappointing

Story is fine, worth listening to, the narration is fine but the voices are awful! There are 3 voices
1-space redneck
2-scared cliche soft spoken woman or 3-1940’s movie Frenchman
Sometimes the inflection sounds like the word to text or random generation. It really took away from the enjoyment. If the narrator just used his regular voice I would have been fine with it. Audiobooks are not cheap and I think this is fair criticism. I slogged my way thru it to get the story done but it wasn’t enjoyable.

Aliens Fireteam Elite player here…

As a player of the game book this is the prequel to I think it does a nice job of giving us background on exactly what happened and how the events in the game came to be. The narrator done a fantastic job I must say, if anything could’ve used maybe a little more suspense.

Alien fun

Took a while for the aliens to get free and kill everyone but as usual they did. Was good, will get the next in the series.
