I'll think I'll wait to see your take on the Predator segments if there are any in this novel.

Spoiler
QuoteShe had conducted a series of features on the Arcturus settlers, before they renounced humanity entirely.

Either Arturians aren't aliens OR there are humans who settled with them and assimilated. I hope this gets addressed.

WOW!!!!

Sea of Sorrows does explicitly say that
Spoiler
Arcturians were the first alien race met by humans. So those "settlers" may be humans who assimilated.

I mean COME ON! Arcturian Poontang will make anyone renounce their humanity!

I got a text from my book shop that my book has arrived! Picking it up tomorrow, can't wait!

92 pages in...
Spoiler
and we've met the Rage's xenomorph queen. They feed humans from the Fiennes ship to her. Also, the slug-creature has been given a name: the Faze.

I defintely think that reference was to humans who have decided to live with the Arcturians.

Do you have a local Waterstones shop nearby? I order my books from Waterstones and then go to the store when they text me it has arrived.

Ultramorph

We've just met two new main characters...
Spoiler
Jiango and Yvette Tann, who are interested in the xenos as a potentially intelligent species, like dolphins. They had a son in the Marines who was killed trying to obtain xenos for W-Y. They live on a private station called Hell, frequented by pirates and people looking get away from the Company.

121 pages in, and we've learned that Predators
Spoiler
don't need to go into suspension when going through drop-holes, which would destroy a human mind.

Palant and McIlveen also learned that Predator language consist of several languages as different as French and English, and that Predators who have hunted on Earth has adopted some Earth-like language structures.

We also got a brief mention of how many times WY had tried controlling the xenos by means as divers as mechanical and physic control. There was an odd reference to them attempting to genetically alter xenos, but it was a disaster. Reference to Resurrection, maybe?
