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.
"GAME OVER MAN! GAME OVER!"
On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy. Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency.
"Sharp writing and a great story!"
The Rage launch the ultimate assault on the Human Sphere. Their greatest weapons are the most fearsome creatures in the galaxy - the Xenomorphs. Having fled centuries before, the Rage return to take revenge and claim the planet for their own. Now, through a deal struck with the unlikeliest of allies, the human race may rely on the Predators to ensure mankind's ultimate freedom.

"not to bad"
Predator ships stream into human space in unprecedented numbers. The Colonial Marines, controlled by Weyland-Yutani, respond to the incursion, thus entering the Rage War. This terrifying assault by the Yautja cannot go unchallenged, yet the cost of combat is high. Predators are master combatants, and each encounter yields a high body count. Then, when Lt. Johnny Mains and his marines - the VoidLarks - enter the fray, they discover an enemy deadlier than any could imagine.
"I was really wanted to like this book!!"

"A very good listen."
You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video-gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic.
"Multiple zombie genres - weak storytelling"
The army had said it was a training accident. But why had the coffin they sent home been sealed? So on a dark night, in a deserted field, Tom begins to unearth the mass grave where he hopes—and fears—that he will find his son's remains. He finds instead madness: corpses in chains and dead bodies that still move and grasp and clutch. And one little girl, dead and rotting, who promises to help Tom find what he's looking for, if only he will free her.

But now the unlikely pair are brought together for what will be their greatest - and perhaps final - journey.

Kel Boon was once an agent of the land's most secret organization, tracking, observing, and eliminating the Strangers as part of an elite Core team.

Trotz schwerer Verletzungen und eines herben Verlusts ist es der Crew gelungen, die rettende Ebene 4 zu erreichen, auf der die dringend benötigte Brennstoffzelle lagert. Und selbst Sneddon schöpft nun neue Hoffnung: Der Facehugger hat sich von ihrem Gesicht gelöst - und offenbar geht es ihr gut. Der Rückweg zur MARION kann also endlich beginnen. Doch Ripley weiß, dass es nur eine Frage der Zeit ist, bis ein Alien aus ihr herausplatzt.
Die gute Nachricht: Die Crew hat es tatsächlich zurück zu MARION geschafft! Und hier gilt es keine Zeit zu verlieren. Während Hooper die Brennstoffzelle in die NARCISSUS einbauen muss, sollen die anderen Lebensmittel und Medikamente einsammeln, um für die lange und beschwerliche Reise gewappnet zu sein. Doch nicht nur Ash will das Team davon abhalten, die MARION lebend zu verlassen - auch das letzte verbliebene Alien lauert irgendwo im Schiff noch immer auf frische Beute.
Ash arbeitet weiter unbemerkt an seiner Mission, die Crew mit den Aliens in Berührung zu bringen. Und es sieht ganz so aus, als würde er seinem Ziel immer näher kommen. Zwar konnte sich die Crew fürs Erste in einen kleinen Hohlraum retten, in Sicherheit sind sie dadurch aber nicht - im Gegenteil: Das Ganze wirkt wie eine tödliche Sackgasse. Doch während Hooper und die anderen verzweifelt nach einer Möglichkeit suchen, die Höhle wieder zu verlassen und den rettenden Fahrstuhl zu erreichen, macht Sneddon eine unglaubliche Entdeckung.
Der Versuch, die SAMSON von den Aliens zu säubern, ist grausam fehlgeschlagen - und eines der Monster streift nun frei und unkontrolliert durch die MARION. Während die Crew noch rätselt, wie das alles passieren und sich die Schleuse einfach öffnen konnte, steht für Ripley der Grund dafür fest: Es war Ash, der Android! Er muss sich auch Zugang zu den Systemen außerhalb der NARCISSUS verschafft haben. Doch niemand will ihr glauben.
