Publisher's Summary

A dramatic new Alien novel, as Weyland-Yutani seeks to recover from the failure of Hadley's Hope and successfully weaponize the Xenomorphs

With the failure of Hadley's Hope, Weyland-Yutani has suffered a devastating setback - the loss of the Aliens they aggressively sought to exploit. Yet there's a reason the Company has risen to the top of the food chain. True to form, they have a redundancy already in place...the facility known as "The Cold Forge".

Remote station RB-232 has become their greatest asset in weaponizing the Xenomorphs. However, when Dorian Sudler is sent to RB-232 to assess their progress, he discovers that there's a spy aboard - someone who doesn't necessarily act in the company's best interests. For Dorian, this is the most unforgivable of sins. When found, the perpetrator will be eliminated with extreme prejudice. If unmasked, though, this person may be forced to destroy the entire station...and everyone on board. That is, if the Xenomorphs don't do the job first.

Great SciFi

This was an excellent listen. You don’t have to be a die hard alien fan to enjoy Cold Forge. The science was well thought out and the story was fast paced. Michael Braun delivers a pitch perfect performance.

Hard to finish.

Unfortunately this book was hard to finish. The storyline was overly repetitive and way too much about the director. also the aliens were almost nonexistent in the book and didn't follow any of the normal habits of aliens in the canon.

Movie Worthy

What can I say, great story, great narration. Visceral action and suspense combined with smooth storytelling. This book put me into the universe and didn't let go. This is what Alien Resurrection should have been instead of casting a weak story about a Ripley clone. Alex White hit a home run!

The best Alien novel ever written, bar none.

The Cold Forge is the best Alien novel yet written. It is even superior to Steel Egg, and is good enough to stand on its own even without its association with the Aliens mythos. I recommend it without hesitation. Kudos to Michael Braun for his superb narration, including female voices (which have been a problem for male narrators in the past, who too often make the mistake of actually attempting to imitate a woman's voice rather than focusing on conveying the character's intent in their dialogue). I must also give author Alex White credit for successfully incorporating elements of the new Prometheus/Covenant mythos regarding alien biology (specifically the black goo) into the larger Aliens franchise without compromising its established lifecycle.

listen closely

A good story which CV h requires attention by the listener. I had to play it back several times but not because of the narration but because of me. I tend to listen to my Audio books while engaging in other activities. My fault not theirs. Ultimate review is that I would gladly purchase this again. Pove it and I hope there is a sequel.

Why can’t the movies be this good?

Absolutely brilliant story from the Alien universe. A creepy and intriguing tale that builds and builds, delivering tense thrills, suspense and action with characters you actually care about.

Superb book.

Do yourself a favour and go out and pick up a copy of Alien: The Cold Forge. From Aaron Percival here at Alien vs. Predator Galaxy, I award Alex White’s Alien: The Cold Forge a 10 out of 10.

 Rating: 10/10
