Publisher's Summary

As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man.

When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey. Hoop and his associates uncover a nest of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on a new meaning. Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviors....

....Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.

the best audible experience on earth

If Audible had an option, who lets you choose that ONE book that is 10* out of 5*, it would be this one. this is the futur of audiobooks, that feeling, right there. That experience, this is it. If every book could be lived through the same way the naraters interpreted this one, the TV industries would go bankcrupt. Thank you so much for this mind-blowing experience, this ia a whole new level of Audiobook quality..

Your top fan,
Ellen Ripley

Fantastic work... next best thing to a movie!

Excellent performances, intriguing story and absolutely top notch sound fx. Not a novel, a fully scripted play.

captivating!

it was so good! I've you've watched any of the Alien movies this gives alittle more depth to the story while still being an entirely different story on it's own. captivating! it draws you into the story until you're jumping along with the bumps.
