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

Just wow ❤️

As a HUGE fan of the series I was skeptical at first I mean, what can you add to the masterpieces that are the 1st and second movies.... Well it was added !!! It takes toy right back. The voices are actually perfect, scenario is edge of your seat.... God I wish this could be like Alien 2.0... Fits right in between. If you're a fan or just want an awesome ride in sci-fi genre then try this ❤️❤️❤️❤️

A Phenomenal Alien Story!

From top to bottom, this dramatization of Lebbon's novel is up there with the first two Alien films. Storyline, voice acting and production values are all stellar. Looking forward to picking up the 2nd book in this trilogy.

feels like a movie

This is my bar for audible books. It reminds me of the old radio dramas the way it builds atmosphere and all the sounds in the background and voice acting it just pull you into the alien universe. I hope I can find more audible books like this one, I get bored of the standard narration in some of the other books I've tried. 10/10---- side note she sounds just like sigourney weaver, I thought it was her for real
