Description

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 story line

Nice to see the aliens as a part of the story but more interesting sub plots taking center stage. And the narrator was OUTSTANDING.

Awesome

I am a big alien fan and this book definitely delivered. Dorian was awesome he really carried the story along with blue. I loved the back and forth dialogue so much I must have listened to the chapters several times because it was so engaging. This is I think the best audio book I have listened to. The aliens were definitely scary also.Dorian was an asshole but a much needed one also. The narrator was very good and it seems all characters came from different voices.

Dorian made for a flawless story

I am a huge Alien fan. I have many of the books. Seen the movies over and over. The Cold Forge is a masterpiece. Dorian is the perfect antagonist. There are few fleshed out antagonist leave a long lasting impression on me.

1. Annie Wilkes
2. Patrick Bateman
3 Dorian

Alex White did an excellent job with his characters. I felt for Lucy, Blue, joviar, and especially Dorian. Michael Braun was excellent. Please please team up again.

Hey Alex can we get a prequel for Dorian? He is pure narcissistic evil. The definitive sociopath. I actually about the aliens for a brief moment to delve into the mind of a monster.

Excellent, great book. Had me on the edge of my seat for the whole 11 hours.

Great book! Great narrative!

So much fun to listen too! I liked the narrative. Any story where I'm actually like 'I can't wait to get back to my book to see what the jerk so and so does next' is a good book.

The Best Alien Book Yet

Truly loved the characters and their ambiguity. The Aliens were truly monstrous and written oh so well. Thank you Alex White for bringing the horror back to aliens.

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.

Pretty good addition to the series

This book was somewhat similar in plot to the 4th Alien movie but brings some fun new elements to the table. It seems to be more about the humans than the threat posed to them by the aliens. The book started out pretty slowly but, once it picked up, it’s intensity continued to increase. The narration was top notch.
