Book Description: 

THE FIRST IN AN ALL NEW, OFFICIAL TRILOGY SET IN THE ALIEN UNIVERSE!

The massively acclaimed Alien franchise is one of the most successful of all time, beginning with the first film in 1979. In a dramatic twist, this novel will return us to that time, to Ellen Ripley, and to never-before-revealed secrets of the Weyland-Yutani Corporations … secrets that lead into the events of the second film, Aliens… and beyond!  Officially sanctioned and true to the Alien cannon, Alien: Out of the Shadows expands upon the well-loved mythos and is a must for all Alien fans. 

Review

I was expecting this book to be based on the movie, but it really wasn’t.  This is more of a sequel, with the setting being after the movie Alien, yet before Aliens. The author does a great job of filling us in on what happened between the two movies.  He also opens the door to several new possibilities of alien infection and spread. It also primes the pump for future books in the series and keeps alive characters you either love or hate.  All in all, I think Alien fans will be pleased with this book.  I know I was.
