Alien: Echo Review – AvP Galaxy Podcast #91

We have just uploaded the 91st episode of the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast (right-click and save as to download)! Our latest episode sees regular hosts Corporal Hicks and RidgeTop joined by community guest Shevvie to breakdown and discuss Alien: Echo, Alien’s first foray into the Young Adult genre by Mira Grant.

 Alien: Echo Review - AvP Galaxy Podcast #91

We breakdown the plot of the book and talk in detail about the things we loved in the book and the things we weren’t keen on. We talk about how Alien adapts to Young Adult and whether that means the book lacks in violence (it doesn’t. At all).

We discuss Olivia Shipp, a new recurring character introduced in this book that is set to re-appear in Aliens: Colonial Marines – Rising Threat and Cold Iron Studio’s new Alien game, how it’s possible to hate a child as much as RidgeTop hates Michel, and plenty more!

There’s a quick point where we’re unsure whether Sebestian was Katherine’s or John’s brother, and he’s Katherine’s. Later this month we’ll be sharing an interview with Seanan McGuire, the author of Alien: Echo!

    In which year (or years) is the novel chronologically located? I don't know if it appears somewhere and I would like to know more or less before reading it. Thanks!

    PS: Avoid spoilers, please.

    Great episode guys, I also loved the cold forge but this book was still well done and think you guys were very fair in talking about it. To me it felt like Dawson's Creek meets Aliens haha, but if it's done well, then what's wrong with that. Let many flowers bloom.

    Very comprehensive podcast! Great job! RidgeTop taking me back to 6th grade with the Paul Zindel reference (I not only read “Raptor”, but also “Loch”, and “The Doom Stone” haha). Looking forward to the interview with Mira Grant.

    Ha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who enjoyed that book. Haven't read any of Zindel's others but I really should. Glad you enjoyed the episode.

    Thanks all! I'm glad everyone is enjoying (and convinced some of you to actually pick up a copy).

    Was Raptor the one where a kid finds a dinosaur egg in Utah or something? I think I may have actually read that when I started secondary school.

    Yep, takes place in my home state. I need to read it again as I remember it being a really engaging one.

    Prime review :P really wanted to see what you guys thought about this. Glad you liked it as well. All the things that bothered you I noticed too, but I got over it quickly cause it just felt realistic to me as to how the characters acted, at least compared to my teen years and my friends at the time.

    And yeah, screw Michael.
