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.

As an Audio Show - free for members - when you add Alien: Out of the Shadows to your library, you'll get all 10 episodes, each with a runtime of about 30 minutes.

I am a franchise fan through and through

First off I cannot believe it was free, Second of all I can’t believe the quality. It was perfectly set between the first movie and the second movie. The voice acting was superb the sound effects were great the story was awesome and it’s addition to the franchise is flawless.

I don’t like when trolls complain about franchises like this, these franchises have been around for ever now and there’s a reason for it and this is a fine addition I recommend this to everybody and to audible if there’s any more free versions please put it in my suggestions.

Very well done...

What a pleasure to listen to and yes as already stated in the other reviews it is like a movie. I find that with all the voices it makes for a great story. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a good Audible original to listen to.

It’s like a movie!

Definitely not what I expect but absolutely what I needed. I was doing a long road trip and wanted something interesting to listen to and this was perfect. It’s read like you’re listening to a movie, which each character having their own voice actor. I’d recommend this to anyone, whether you like the alien series or not it’s a must

Very Cool Sci Fi Drama

A very cool story based off of Alien Novel. Not too long and just the right amount of captivating.
