    Description

    The critically acclaimed author of Alien: The Cold Forge takes listeners to a rogue colony where terror lurks in the tunnels of an abandoned Weyland-Yutani complex.

    “Shy” Hunt and the tech team from McAllen Integrations thought they’d have an easy job - set up environmental systems for the brand new Hasanova Data Solutions colony, built on the abandoned ruins of a complex known as “Charybdis”. There are just two problems: The colony belongs to the Iranian state, so diplomacy is strained at best, and the complex is located above a series of hidden caves that contain deadly secrets. When a bizarre ship lands on a nearby island, one of the workers is attacked by a taloned creature, and trust evaporates between the Iranians and Americans. The McAllen Integrations crew is imprisoned, accused as spies, but manages to send out a distress signal - to the Colonial Marines.

    The Alien franchise just hit a new high!

    Since a far too young little boy stayed up well past his bedtime to watch a movie his parents refused to let him watch, Alien and the franchise it spawned have been a constant part of my life. While not as blown away by Aliens years later as many others of my generation were I did enjoy the movie. The idea of humans having a way to fight the xenomorphic threat was enticing but never felt quite right to me. I preferred the original movie to the sequel. This book by Alex White has made me come around to seeing how the colonial marines fit into the Alien universe and how truly and utterly the presence of the xenomorphic alter the universe for humans. Alex builds complex characters and sets them in a complex universe where right and wrong, good and evil are so very dependent on survival. This is his second book in the Alien franchise I enjoyed that book and look forward to another book by Alex set in this universe.

    Just OK. Should be called Cold Forge part 2.

    This should have been marked as a sequel. I read cold forge recently, and don't see how the main plot elements could fit properly without it. Even having read the prior book, the way it connected was confusing. The reading was fine. The story was ok.

    Alien has fallen victim to SJW propaganda...

    Half of the book is about hijabs, "american pigs", "white dudes", pronouns and lesbians. I'm getting my token back. Go woke get broke Alex White. Also the narration was awfull.

    It's entertaining, but not great

    Was an entertaining book with cool moments. Although the author couldn't really decide on a main character. returning characters from the last book are great, but it left me feeling like there was just something missing at the end.

    Boring and Forgettable

    For me, this book was fail across the board. The characters are boring, the story is weak and chronologically broken, and the narration will put you to sleep. The conflict of the book isn’t even primarily from the xenomorphs. It’s more surviving sabotage from the marines. You had an interesting setting, a wide variety of characters with differing goals, and I completely lost interest and had slog my way through the last third of the book. As an Alien franchise fan, it was a chore to get through this book.

    Tantalizing

    I saw a review that had a negative review about the narrator. After listening for myself, I think a British South Asian narrator with the talents of Shiromi Arserio was perfect for the accents needed for the reading of this book. Also there were many during female leads in this book which cried for a female voice to narrate.
    I was very pleased to have Blu Marsalis back in the xenomorph story adventure. I The back story to the planet was nice, but I would have liked a little more to the parasitic creatures there. This still had a great story line and plenty of twists and turns.

    ok

    If you really like aliens than it’s worth it if you have nothing else but by far the weakest of the new aliens stories. The reader wasn’t part talent wise she is actually a good reader i think. But was a very strange choice when it seemed like there were 3 main characters and 2 were male.

    Langatmig, unglaubwürdig, langweilige Story

    Ich kenne fast alle Alien Hörbücher und es gibt einige richtig Gute.
    Cold Forge und Into Charybdis sind meiner Meinung nach mit die schlechtesten Hörspiele bezüglich Alien.
    Alex White hat ein Faible für soziopathische und psychopathische Charaktere, die bis zur Unglaubwürdigkeit verzerrt werden.
    Es ist oft nicht klar, was diese Leute antreibt, nur das sie herzlos und böse sind, ohne das es dafür wirklich eine rationale Erklärung gibt. Auch die meisten anderen Charaktere scheinen eher Karikaturen zu sein, als reale Leute. Was Alex White wirklich nicht kann ist, glaubwürdige oder liebenswerte Charaktere zum mitfiebern zu erstellen.
    Leider sind in dieser Story die Aliens nur Beiwerk und Alex White ergiesst sich in Rückblenden zu Cold Forge und der Politik der Zukunft, das Khalifat vs. Amerika vs. Kommunisten. Dinge die ich persönlich wirklich nicht in einem Alien-Hörbuch brauche.
    Es dauert gut 4 Stunden bis das Hörbuch einigermaßen in Fahrt kommt und auch hier baut sich nie Spannung auf oder eine Geschichte zum mitfiebern. Die Aliens verlieren ihre Gefährlichkeit und werden nur als Mittel zu politischen Zwecken eingesetzt.
    Ich bin noch nicht ganz durch, aber nach 7 oder 8 Stunden habe ich jede Lust verloren, weiterzuhören.

    Wenn jemand wirklich gute Alien-Hörspiele hören möchte, kann ich Out of the Shadow, River of Pain und Sea of Sorrows empfehlen. Hier werden interessante Informationen und Lore gestreut, ohne die Timeline zu gefährden und die Macher sind auch wesentlich besser in der Darstellung von interessanten, liebenswerten, aber auch wirklich fiesen Charakteren die auch ein Motiv haben.

    Eine weitere Sache die mich hier bei Cold Forge und Into Charybdis sehr stören, ist das Aufgreifen von Dingen die in den wirklich üblen Non-canon Fan Fiction Filmen Prometheus und Alien Covenant gestreut werden. Z.B. das "black goo", welches alles herstellen kann, ganz nach Plot-Bedarf. Mega-Facehuggers, Neomorphs, normale Aliens, Zombie usw.
    Diesen Mumpitz brauchts im Alien-Universum voller Mysterien wirklich nicht.

    Die Hörbücher von Alex White kann ich leider nicht empfehlen.
