Resistance, Rescue, Echo, Aliens, Cold Forge, CM - Rising Threat.

Another alien story set between Alien and Aliens huh. Is CM-RT set before Alien 3?

Now that I'm thinking about it I believe she went to look for her Mom and she figured that's where her mom would have headed towards.

Oh okay
Spoiler
then I think it was a combination of where the ship crashed down and the direction the xenos were carrying off their victims

May have to give this another read before the new comic comes out.

Olivia guesses the Aliens will be in or near the caves where the shuttle crashed, and on the way they find a dead lion-worm that effectively confirms they're going in the right direction.

Good book, not great- but good.

Going to be interviewing Mira Grant next week. You know the drill. Any questions, throw them up.

Still Collating...

I enjoyed this one a lot (as stated in my previous review), so I'll really be looking forward to this interview.

Who from (the writer or Fox) and how did the idea come to write an Alien novel in the YA genre? How easy or difficult was it to write such a story, making the characters believable and relatable whilst at the same time being respectable to the deadliness of the Aliens? And does the writer know that the character of Olivia is going to be used in the new comic and game, was that the plan right from the start? Is the writer involved, has a say in how Olivia is portrayed in the comic and game, or is it all up to Fox what they do with her?

Unrelated to the upcoming interview, but did anyone else notice how this was published by Macmillan and not Titan?

I listened to the audiobook, so I didn't notice that. Wow, nice catch, that's weird. Now how did that happen?

She's not involved with the comic.

Yeah I noticed before the book even came out. Guessing that YA is a whole other licensing agreement. Probably similar to Star Wars where Del Rey publishes the "adult" novels and Lucasfilm Press handles the YA novels.

@Hicks I'd be interested in knowing if she's familiar with any of the EU.

Imprint is the child/ young adult arm of Macmillan.  I don't think YA is really in Titan's wheelhouse.
