    Description

    The Covenant mission is the most ambitious endeavor in the history of Weyland-Yutani. A ship bound for Origae-6, carrying 2,000 colonists beyond the limits of known space, this is a make-or-break investment for the corporation - and for the future of all mankind.

    Yet there are those who would die to stop the mission. As the colony ship hovers in Earth orbit, several violent events reveal a deadly conspiracy to sabotage the launch. While Captain Jacob Branson and his wife, Daniels, complete their preparations, security chief Daniel Lope recruits the final key member of his team. Together they seek to stop the perpetrators before the ship and its passengers can be destroyed.

    An original novel by the acclaimed Alan Dean Foster, author of the groundbreaking Alien novelization, Alien: Covenant Origins is the official chronicle of the events that led up to Alien: Covenant. It also reveals the world the colonists left behind.

    nothing happens

    this is an entire story about a ship taking off despite people not wanting it to take off. it starts that way in ends that way with absolutely no story arc. just a collection of about a dozen attempts to prevent the ship from taking off.

    Hard sci-fi political intrigue in Alien Universe

    If you haven't already - listen to this BEFORE the Alien: Covenant novelization!

    Great reader, great writer - I love the Alien universe and and really happy to have an expansion of life on earth at the time of the Covenant launch with well voiced, interesting characters.

    Great narrator, lackluster writing

    The story is merely backstory of how Weyland-Yutani came about getting the Covenant mission to take place. There's violent employees, there's a lot of dialogue for the sake of dialogue, and there's minimal character development of the crew of the Covenant. Save yourself 8 hours and don't listen to this; you'll thank me later.

    What kept me engaged in this book was the narrator and his artistic ability to have distinct accents and tonality per character (male and female). I'd listen to other books he's narrated simply because it's a talent for sure.

    Corporate Espionage, No Monsters

    I've been a fan of the Alien films for a long time. I didn't have the opportunity to see Alien Covenant in theaters, but have the film on Blu Ray, though I haven't seen it yet. I decided to wait until the prequel Book was published and read it and the film novelization before watching the movie. It is unusual that the prequel book, which should've been published first, was actually last.
    There are no monsters in this book, as it is a tale of corporate espionage regarding the mission of the colony ship Covenant. The intrigue is well written and interesting, though not all questions are answered. Weyland -Yutani is not quite the corporate powerhouse in this book, though they are a conglomerate. The head Hideo Yutani is interesting. The organization that opposes him, the Earth Savers has a "prophet" who seemingly knows what monsters like in the dark. His nightmares have given the Earth Savers fuel for their fire. This plot point is similar to one in an earlier book, Alien Sea of Shadows. Please note: Spoilers.
    Duncan Fields, the prophet, seems to have an empathetic link to the Alien warriors, similar to Ripley's descendant in Sea of Shadows. He had the ability to see through the Alien warriors eyes. Duncan Fields seems to have this ability as well, though the background is not explained fully. Still a great read. I read this book using Immersion Reading. Narrator Tom Taylorson, is excellent, with a beautiful, clear voice and is gifted with accents. It was definitely a highlight to hear this book as well as read it. Worth your time.

    What was happening before Covenant’s departure?

    I can see there is a split feeling about this book, probably depending on the expectations people had. I didn’t have any so I could enjoy it.

    There are no monsters involved and all the story is about what happened before the Covenant begins its journey. Someone dreamt about the dangers and tried to stop the mission.

    I like this saga a lot so I like any different details I can get from the story. And this addiction is interesting too, although I’ve found sometimes the dialogues a bit slow and too predictable.

    Furthermore, I appreciate the effort of the narrator to distinguish various different voices and I believe he did a great job.

    Good preview into earth

    Well the preview into earths conditions was nice. There was some slow parts but overall some nice info about the universe. Would have been hard to keep interest as there was not much action. Good thing this story was created after already being a fan. If it was first story in order...I don’t know if it would create fans.

    Bleak.

    Dismal and depressing. Creatures are nonexistent, but plenty of slow-moving and bleak corporate slog replace them. Out there be severely depressing tales.

    fairly boring, barely even an alien book

    This book could have been the prequel to virtually any science fiction series. Other than a few name drops, it had no connection to the film series and added nothing to the mythos.

    Bland and Uneventful

    This story adds more depth to the political/business aspect of events on earth, however it does not seem to be interested in telling any actual story. This is filler of the mythos just for filler purposes; something to be told and put into the Wikia page. I'm disappointed in this purchase. There are much more interesting stories available on Audible concerning the Alien franchise and I'd recommend seeking out those.

    Gute Ergänzung zum Film

    wie der Titel schon sagt, gute Ergänzung zum Film. Ab und zu etwas langatmig.
