Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of Infected delivers medieval carnage as a pre-industrial society fights extinction at the hands of a massive infestation of Xenomorphs.

Ataegina was an isolated world of medieval castles, varied cultures, and conquests, vibrant until the demons rose and spread relentless destruction. Swarms of lethal creatures with black husks, murderous claws, barbed tails, and dreaded “tooth-tongues” raged through the lowlands, killing 90 percent of the planet’s population. Terrified survivors fled to hidden mountain keeps where they eke out a meager existence. When a trio of young warriors discovers a new weapon, they see a chance to end this curse. To save humanity, the trio must fight their way to the tunnels of Black Smoke Mountain - the lair of the mythical Demon Mother.

Great listen.

Scott’s take on the Alien franchises shows his love for the series. It’s a fantastic listen and Bronson brings the story alive. Really well done

Oooof...

I love Scott Sigler, but shoehorning in all the feminist BS ruined this one. Seriously, we get it. Men are evil rapists and women are virtues, all-powerful super heroes. Sad that pandering to the latest fad of white-knighting and man-bashing ruined what couldve been a good story.

Good initial concept, finally forgetable

I am putting this on my audible to swap list. I genuinely liked the idea of putting a fantasy element to the Alien franchise and applied my credit to this new release while traveling. It may be that my life is currently too full to be nominally stimulated by any audiobook, but I’m quite disappointed by this story putting too many undercurrents of contemporary ideology into an attempted depiction of a past world of short resources and looming danger. Performance was good, and a few clever environmental features gave a bit of imagination but the rest is refried heinz, with sugar, vinegar and too many preservatives.

Note: I much dislike hybridisation of the main storyline unless it’s characters that intertwine nicely from book to book, but this one tries to recreate an entire cultural, historical and civilisational context during the read, and made me think of the Alien as just another screaming troll in a dragonlance or tolkien book. It detracts from the feeling of dread, and makes going to a trek something of a “sponsored by trip advisor” thing not a real survivalist journey.

Note II: I understand the search for new hero prototypes, and again using current political essentials to be correct is a thing, but do I really want that dangling in my face when it’s screamed over invasively? First an LGBT Mortal Kombat;?a similar Aliens takeover, now this. I really miss no nonsense character building with fresh and deep context but you can tell the author’s activities and everyday hangouts of the author by reading through the buildup. And where I’m coming from, it’s first world uninspired pseudo modernism drawing on utterly incomplete and fictional historical accessories trying to instill some final ideas which insult my intelligence as well as my morphology or the combination of both. Where’s the Alien in all of this? Oh, walking dead prop.

The author needs to go around the world, the authentic one, with real dynamic situations and people, places and facts, and perhaps this won’t read as an armchair general with a fetish figurine on his desk kind of rendition.
Can’t recommend unless you really need all aliens books lining up on your shelf.

Very good almost great

I’m a HUGE Alien fan and often wonder how do they keep screwing these up? Scott Sigler delivers. I Just finished, loved the middle, I loved the ending, a few small issues, first 3rd has its moments of absolute slog, the narrator delivers one character is an annoying valley girl “like, fur sure” but with all that said, Sigler gets it, at least to me he does, I hated the last few Alien books, prototype and isolation but I enjoyed the majority of this. A highly recommend for Alien, Aliens fans, while not perfect, it’s very good

!!!Aliens: Phalanx needs to be made into a live/action movie!!!

Action packed from start to finish! Twists and turns that keep you on the edge of your seat, asking and craving for more! Original/refreshing breath of air back into the Alien Franchise! I have never been this excited to eagerly want to return to listen,again and again from the pauses I had in this book! This story deserves more than a five star rating, the unbelievable hard work and creativity put in this Alien novel goes beyond years of story telling without question! I honestly felt like I was right there, deeply immersed like the Matrix inside the story along side with every character, every scene, living every moment of terror and excitement! FOX-As one of many, true die-hard Alien fans! I’m pleading-practically begging at this point, to make this novel into a movie!!! I wouldn’t make this kinda of praise or recommendation about a novel, if it didn’t hold it’s worth in gold! This novel for sure will receive the awards and accolades it deserves! The only thing I’m sad about, which is nothing to be sad about at all-LOL! (Me being Melodramatic) - Is the fact that the novel had to end! This review is pure and from the heart!

Sigler great Pinchot awful

Pinchot sounds like a teddy bear’s soothing voice reading Alien is a sin. Sigler is excellent but the narration is abysmal does not match the genre at all. How disappointing for a mostly epic Alien audiobook collection.

A lot of feminist propaganda.

A decent overall story. The performance was okay but I didn’t like how he made certain characters seem like they were teenagers from the Valley in California. I’m pretty sure people that grew up in Ategina (spelling?) wouldn’t sound like that. I appreciate strong female characters like Ridley from the original movie series but I didn’t like the attitude of the main character toward her lover. If the roles were reversed in those situations there would be folks yelling misogyny from the mountain tops.

Besides that I thought this was a very good story that is a believable fiction unlike some of the other fictions out there with strong female main characters.

Great listen!! Both thumbs up.

To the author, from a huge fan of the Aliens franchise: Well done sir, well done.

To future listeners, you won’t be disappointed. After listening, if you wonder if all of Scott Sigler’s works are this good, then I must say that they most definitely are and that you should check out some of the authors other works. I have been a fan of Scott Sigler and the Aliens franchise for years, and for myself this audiobook was a most satisfying experience.

Interesting and original

This felt like a true part of the alien universe, while maintaining nothing to do with the alien universe. Awesome all around

More Junkie juice, please.

For hard core Alien fans, Mr. Sigler does not disappoint. Definitely was worth the wait.
