Description

Set 300 years after the events of Alien: Out of the Shadows and Alien: River of Pain, Alien: Sea of Sorrows deals with the rediscovery of dormant Xenomorphs (Aliens) in the abandoned mines of LV-178, the planetoid from Alien: Out of the Shadows, which has now been terraformed and renamed New Galveston.

The Weyland-Yutani Corporation, reformed after the collapse of the United Systems Military, continue their unceasing efforts to weaponise the creatures, eliciting the help of Alan Decker, who is forced to join a team of mercenaries sent to investigate an ancient excavation lurking deep beneath the planet's toxic desert, dubbed the Sea of Sorrows.

Somewhere in that long-forgotten dig lies the thing the company wants most in the universe - a living Xenomorph. Decker doesn't understand why the company needs him until his genetic heritage comes back to haunt him. Centuries ago one of his ancestors fought the Aliens, launching a bloody vendetta that was never satisfied. That was when the creatures swore revenge on his forbear, 'the Destroyer', Ellen Ripley...and all her descendants.

This terrifying, cinematic multicast dramatisation - directed by the multiaward-winning Dirk Maggs, best known for his adaptations of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere for the BBC - is the sequel to Audible Originals' Alien: Out of the Shadows (nominated for Best Audio Drama at the 2017 Audies) and Alien: River of Pain.

Full cast: Tom Alexander, Mark Arnold, Sagar Arya, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Laurence Bouvard, Philip Bullcock, John Chancer, Stockard Channing, Cedric Cirotteau, Simon Darwen, Andrea Deck, Oris Erhuero, Tony Gardner, Walles Hamonde, Andrew James Spooner, Lorelei King, Tayla Kovacevic Ebong, Laurel Lefkow, Sandra-Mae Luyck, Theo Maggs, Alan Marriott, Gary Martin, Pauline Mclynn, Eric Meyers, Naoko Mori, Sarah Pitard, Kerry Shale, Thomas Stroppell, Emma Swan, Martin T Sherman, Steve Toussaint and Ryan Wichert.

Way to leave me hangin’!

I have been waiting for a few weeks for the release date, purchased it first thing this morning, finished it 😬, and left with a cliffhanger. Gaaah! The storyline wasn’t as strong as the other two, but I’m looking forward to purchasing the next installment. I love these full cast audio productions! Cheers

Great performances but story is weakest of the 3

I've really loved all the Alien audible dramas. Unfortunately, I couldnt really like this one except for the performances. The length is short, the story feels very generic (almost like the author just wanted to turn a generic horror novel into an alien book), and I couldnt really connect with any of the characters. The performances, like the other Alien audible dramas, were top notch but I couldn't help but feel I like the performance far more than the story and narrative. I hope they make more of these but I hope they choose the narrative material with more care for originality

Not bad but the rest of the trilogy is better

Good story. Intense climax. Great production. 2 complaints: it's very far removed from the movies and doesn't add much we haven't seen in other entries. River of Pain is the best,

Meh

Stockard Channing is excellent, as is the actor who plays Decker, but the story barely advances the Alien universe and lacks originality. Much of the book is spent listening to forgettable characters die. For a fresher and more interesting take, read Tim Lennon’s Alien vs. Predator trilogy.

The legacy continues

Another chapter in which Weyland-Yutani is desperately trying to acquire a live specimen of the Xenomorph 121. However, the company’s efforts on this journey bear fruits. They finally get their hands on a Xeno which happens to be a Queen embryo. The loss of life is catastrophic, one may say even borderline evil. Wetland-Yutani see human life as expandable and only value the acquirement of a live specimen at all costs; the never ending legacy of Special Order 937 which the Android Ash fought for so long to accomplish and the severe expense of LT. Ridley behest. A must have for any fan of the franchise.

Worst of the 3

The story was weak, far weaker than the other two. Characters were nondescript and for the most part interchangeable. The premise was stupid (a 300 yr ancestral grudge?) and adding a “psychic” to the mix makes even less sense than the 4th Alien movie. Absolutely regret wasting a credit on this. The first book was awesome... 2nd book ok... this one just a horrible waste.

Probably my favorite of the three

After listening to all three of the books in this series, this is probably my favorite. The story is a slight stretch compared to the other stories but I loved how it played out. Still going to listen to them a few more times to see if I catch any little details I may have missed the first time.

Great production. Too familiar story.

Enjoyed another Alien story. Excellent voice word and sound. I'm tired of the learning the same facts about Xenomorphs. Facehuggers impregnating victims can only be an amazing revelation so many times.

Outstanding

Performance of the actors, sound design and production quality are outstanding.
The drama was fun from beginning to end and will be loved by alien and sci-fi fans alike. Can’t wait for a next installment.
More please!

Guter Abschluss

Sehr gutes Alien Hörbuch. Für mich das beste der verfügbaren Trilogie.
Die Sprecher sind alle gut gewählt und die Tonkulisse ist ausreichend und überzeugend.

Die Story ist okay, wenn auch recht einfach, wie immer. Auch wieder düster und deprimierend insgesamt; wie Alien sein soll. Dennoch bietet sie einiges Neue für das Alien-Universum und fügt sich gut ein. Tatsächlich hätte einiges sogar noch deutlicher vorkommen können.

Empfehle ich sehr!

Hoffe es wird noch mehr aus Alien Franchise geben
