Needs to use the word Chris more in the blurb.

ChatGPT did it for you.

QuoteHere is the modified text with all pronouns referring to Chris replaced with his name:

WAR WILL ALWAYS FIND A MAN LIKE YOU

This ALIEN story begins where most end: with a xenomorph loose on a damaged spaceship hurtling through space. Once a highly decorated marine, Chris Temple, a recently widowed single father to two young daughters, Jane, 11, and Emma, 8, is onboard. Despite Chris's particular set of skills, Chris doesn't get involved in the fight with the alien, instead focusing on keeping Chris's children safe as the ship comes in for a crash landing.

The family land on an idyllic outpost planet, where Chris is told that the ship has been destroyed beyond recognition and nothing could have survived the crash. That's only the first lie. Chris and Chris's daughters love their new life, but something doesn't feel right. Chris is a paranoid type, but just because Chris is paranoid, doesn't mean Chris is wrong.

There are nasty surprises in store as Chris investigates the web of lies and conspiracies. After leaving a ruined Earth, it seems Chris and Chris's daughters have crash-landed on a planet on the verge of all-out civil war. Chris will have to call on the battle skills Chris never wanted to use again in order to protect Chris's daughters, deal with violence-hungry marines, and battle the xenomorph that's killing people regardless of which side of the civil war they're on.

*Needs an animated gif of Hicks screaming "Draake, we are leeeaving!" But simply subtitled "CHRIS!"

Still Collating...

I'm looking forward to this story honestly.

I love that Gareth is still going.

My local Waterstones had a copy in stock, so naturally I bought it!

Currently working my way through, will post a critique when I'm done.

Blasted through it overnight, and, well...

Spoiler
...it's bad.

Bad as in the writing or the story? Or both?
