Publisher's Summary

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. Yet even the combined might of the two races may not be enough.

The fate of the Earth may rest with a single android - Liliya of the Rage.

Fun SyFy

I was watching a cheezy SyFy movie in my mind, and loved it. You will too.

a great end for a very thrilling series

Most of the story was awesome. I found one fault with the story. On Karen station when the Xenomorphs exploded in space their blood should have froze and floated away versus splashing on the hull of Karen station and eating its way through. Everything freezes in space especially liquids. And everything floats especially liquids. Other than that a great story.

the extended universe is still Canon to me

when you look at the recent works of Ridley Scott's and whoever else is thrown in their two cents you realize how far they have deviated from the science fiction and Space Opera of the original trilogy and subsequent expanded universe established by Dark Horse Comics and the writers of the 80s 90s and early 2000s. this story is the last book in a satisfying trilogy. an aerator has done a great job and the writer I feel is sitting upon Solid ground with his continuity. while the story arcs and overall coincidence provided within the storyline to wrap up the neat little package it's still quite an interesting read. well it's superficially skims the psyche of megalomania and the corruption of intention on the part of the antagonist in the story some of the mutual protagonists storylines feel disjointed or possibly even shoehorned in. also the method of emphasis on the aliens being little more than just tools effectively defangs them. in addition the fact that they add in predators to the mix makes the whole thing kind of feel like the same sort of story could have been written with Killer Robots instead of the Xenomorphs and had the same effect. as an audiobook it was entertaining but when reflecting on the contents and overall construction you realize that a lot of the story is a cookie-cutter Space Opera with the franchise painted over a lot of basic tropes. in the very end it lacks what the newest audio dramas from the same franchise Lack which is the body horror and frightening Cosmic horror even though they did try to incorporate some sort of space god that modifies and improves technology I think that the storytellers did not understand the insipid nature of incorporating Horror in action thriller writing.

A misleading title, it's not what you would think

it was an okay story but I was expecting something else. there's not so much Alien versus Predator as it is human versus alien with a little Predator help. I think it was titled this way so it can sell more copies and that's just insulting.

Very Entertaining, action dense

There is a lot of action in this. And if you're craving anything from this franchise then you won't be too disappointed. There were a few new things I liked such as the descriptions of a few new alien world beings and life forms.
Loved most of the characters and hated one appropriately.

I only wish a few things:
1) he had been a little more imaginative with the story and that it didn't hold so many things in common with Mass Effect.
2) Wish he had come up with more elaborate language for the technology and sought a scientific adviser for new terms. That would have raised the level of this sci-fi to Classic level. The repetition of all the acid splashes got a little old. Like, 'yeah, ok, we are the lowest forms of advanced sentient space-faring beings and we burn easy. Got it.' But really, he kind of took one idea and beat it to death in present day language with only one or two new phrases.
Generally, his is a good placeholder for my insatiable appetite for space opera. But, he could take some notes from descriptive authors in the genre.
3)The narrator could be heard swallowing a few times. It's not enough to make those of us with sensitivity to mouth noises throw away the whole experience, but really, if he does that with other books I'd rather read the print.

I’ll keep it short. This deserves a movie trilogy, series ,video game, or anime lol. The most epic in all the expanded lore. Good stuff.

Very Good Finale

This delivers in just the way you need a final book of the series to deliver. Lots of action, lots of battles, a fitting conclusion and suitable endings for the main characters. I struggled at the start of this series with the role that the aliens were given but if you have enjoyed the previous two books then I think you'll be happy with the quality of the conclusion. There is nothing worse than getting through to the final book of the series and being let down. Luckily Lebbon and Chancer close this one off nicely.

Rage War - Book III "EPIC FINALE" !!!!

I NEVER do spoilers in my reviews !!!! So can,t go into too much detail.......BUT, suffice to say that this book is an EPIC FINALE, to the Rage War Trilogy !!! I feel also that the ending has definitely left the door open for follow-on books !?!
I am a HUGE Fan of Tim Lebbon, from these Alien storyline books, to his Star Wars books & if course his Own fantasy books (*like "The Fallen" !!) And I look eagerly forward to future books by him !!!
John Chancer is a FANTASTIC Narrator, & was possibly the best choice for this Trilogy, his voice changes for the different characters was excellent & really helps define each character in the book !! I will definitely look for more books that he has narrated in future purchases !!!!
This is NOT a stand-alone novel, the preceding books are a MUST in order to enjoy them all to Their fullest !!!
This Trilogy is also a MUST, for Fans of either the Alien storyline &or Predator storyline !!!! And I leave desperately hoping for more................

Acid & Blood

Alien Versus Predator: Armageddon finishes this three book Rage War series by Tim Lebbon fairly well. It has generous amounts of combat and fast action scenes with plenty of Alien carnage on offer. Not quite as strong as book 2 in this trilogy but far better than the first very slow opener to this series. In this part we perhaps see more actual Alien Versus Predator combat but in the overall series the actual amount of one on one action between these two supreme alien species is limited to a mere handful of incidents. It's far more about how humans combat the terrifying Xenomorphs with the aid of the Predator species than anything else which is fine but I felt this book missed a trick when it came to suspenseful stalking and tracking of the Xenomorphs by the Predators. Still, there is plenty of action for those out there for some serious mayhem to keep things moving along well.

I have to say that I found the whole Founders/Rage thing rather confusing. It might have been covered in the first book but I just couldn't see what the rationale was for the Founders and then the Rage at all. It seems that they have a series gripe with humanity but I'm blown if I can figure out what it was. As a protagonist major villain, I felt they were rather confusing and ill defined. By the end of this book we have no clue how the Xenomorphs were controlled other than to get a glimpse into the birthing process. We know that they are implanted with something but no mention is made of exactly what and how or if it was I missed it.

Although it is interesting and entertaining to have such a series, I have to say that any book that further demystifies either the Predators or Xenomorphs only diminishes their appeal to me. Multiple sequels in both franchises often serve to take away the very thing that makes these monsters so terrifying. By inventing a name for the Predators and a pseudo culture as well as communication between them and the humans I feel - and it may only be me in the minority here I grant you - that we lessen the mystique around them. Sometimes less really is more. If, for example, we eventually have predators sat at a bar talking to humans then where's the mystery? Not that this happened in this book but I think most readers will understand what I mean.

One story element I did like was the consistency that Lebbon brought into this book by stating how the Rage had found long dead dog like creatures when they had come across the Xenomorphs. As I recall, such creatures featured in the excellent Alien: Out of The Shadows audio drama co-written by Tim Lebbon.

Another confusing plot element here was the way the deactivation of the drop hole network toward the end of the book seemed so final. The tone here was that humanity would be trapped forever without these FTL worm hole type constructs but I could see how this was needed to isolate any stranded Xenomorphs but also got the impression that it was a permanent thing. I was asking why couldn't the network simply be switched on again as needed as easily as it had been turned off.

Plenty of action here but I still feel the second book was better. Some plot elements are a bit confusing or poorly defined and I got the impression that the story was wrapped up pretty quickly once things came to a head. Sort of suggested that maybe in the future this series might be expanded. A decent effort if a little less than polished.

For lovers of the franchise!

story a little repetitive in places but well read and held my attention, a great trilogy of books to add to the Alien universe with new concepts due to its time period setting - a number of centuries on from Aliens etc.

Not a bad book.

If you could sum up Alien vs. Predator: Armageddon in three words, what would they be?

Fast, furious and entertaining.

What did you like best about this story?

It was all quite good, seeing how the aliens, humans and predators fit into this story.

Which character – as performed by John Chancer – was your favourite?

I can not pin down one character, he was very good and I could not wait for the next chapter to start.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If you loved the book, you will kill for the movie.

Any additional comments?

Look if you like aliens and predators then you should like this book - just read or listen to books one and two first.
