Finished Alien Harvest to complete the Omnibus Vol. 2 novels. This book was odd. The first half was really tough to get through and didn’t seem to really start picking up until Stan takes the Xeno pills.
The relationship between Julie and Stan made no sense and her whole “Thief” thing got tiring, real quickly.
I didn’t like how Genocide and Harvest explained the aliens and the hives. I had a hard time believing that Julie, Stan and the Android Gill could make it through a hive alive. That and how the writers always referred to the Aliens as dumb, I personally never thought of them like that, or as bugs.
Also, the ending of Harvest didn’t make any sense. Why Stan was taking back to the hive and not Julie?
Nonetheless, not horrible but by no means great.
