Flying Aliens aren't new, but I actually like Aliens and kind of don't need them to get super powers to remain interesting every other book, y'know?

EDIT

That said the EU is the place for this and I'm just getting a grumpy bitch :laugh:

So, now we're getting Alien: Colony WAR and AvP: Rift WAR ? So much WAR around

Not to mention we alredy had AvP Rage WAR trilogy

And Aliens: Earth/Female WAR. Aaaaand AvP: Three World WAR. And just AvP: WAR.

Is there any WAR I missed ?

DNA War

That's the WAR I've missed  :D

Yeah don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of the whole "bigger, badder" trope, but with the Xenos I do enjoy seeing some DNA reflex in action.

If he can make it useful, like in Aliens Phalanx, I'm all for it. As with the so called "vert-a-voot"

But otherwise?

Not the biggest fan.

I can’t wait for Phil “Deutsch” Shaeffer, Nick Harrigan, Steve Van Luen, Wayne Hicks and Oswoldo Ripley-McClaren to avenge their ancestors.

Sounds terribly generic, very disappointing. Maybe it will be written well but damm its sad that its just another run of the mill story of humans trapped in the middle of a ritual hunt again.

Weird that we have a release date for this novel but don’t have a date for AVP: Annihilation which was teased in the Gibson novelization.

Just updated the main post to include mention of Yvonne Navarro. Both Navarro and Ochse are writing this one. Not the first husband and wife team we've seen on an Alien novel. I'm curious to see how this one turns out - Music of the Spears is one of my favourite Alien novels. Also worth noting, Titan is sticking to Aliens vs. Predators again .

It's kinda funny - we went so long without the DNA reflex being toyed with at all, to a f**king lot of it lately. Nothing wrong with it IMHO. Just depends on execution.

Also, this has a good chance of another Human-Predator team-up at the end.

Wait what??? Did our collective trepidation for a Shirley AVP novel give Titan pause? I need answers lol
