Publisher's Summary

Predator ships stream into human space in unprecedented numbers. The Colonial Marines, controlled by Weyland-Yutani, respond to the incursion, thus entering the Rage War. This terrifying assault by the Yautja cannot go unchallenged, yet the cost of combat is high.
Predators are master combatants, and each encounter yields a high body count. Then, when Lt. Johnny Mains and his marines - the VoidLarks - enter the fray, they discover an enemy deadlier than any could imagine.
Audiobook one in an epic trilogy that continues in Alien: Invasion and concludes in Aliens vs. Predator: Armageddon. The universe will forever be changed.

In Space Nobody Hears You Sigh

Maybe I am being a bit harsh on this one . . . there is a decent story in here. The rationale that is drawn for the incursion of the Predators is actually clever and unexpected. There are some good action scenes and a couple of very powerful scenes. One involving a young girl called Luciana is particularly moving.

However, there were problems for me. Rather than being a story centered on these iconic monsters of Sci-fi it felt like one that merely used them as the monsters it required for the plot. In addition the narration is good for the most part but the very strong, tough female characters at the centre of the story were made to sound very “girlie” by both the dialogue and the voicing - sorry there must be a better word or phrase than “girlie” but I can’t think of another one that says quite what I mean.

What I really missed though is feeling the sense of dread of the aliens or the predators. It just wasn’t there for me and more time should have been spent stirring that up rather than the back story about the Founders. I will say that the scene set for the second book seems promising and it’s very possible that this will be a series that picks up momentum as it goes on. It could be that if I accept the role that the predators and aliens have been given which is a subservient one I’ll enjoy it more, but sadly I’m not completely sold on it yet.

Pretty Good.

Good story but it was a bit slow in places. Narrator was ok but his attempts at female voices was a bit strange in places.
