Q
Was the disc left on the ship though? Harrigan only took the pistol?

Finished the book but liked the first half more than the second.
The fight scenes were the meat of the book, and interesting in a sense that you knew where each bullet hit and which exact injuries anyone had.
Also, the drug house and fairground scenes were really cool to picture in your head.

I'm about a fourth of the way in, had been waiting until after seeing the film to dig into it.

It's really good so far!

I read it upon release and was very happy with it. I hoped that with the prequel novel being so good, that the movie would be. Not managed to see it, yet, so the jury is out on that so far.

I’m kind of curious if the bio helmet we see in the display case next to jungle hunters  belongs to the predator in this novel.

It has a ton, and it's very enjoyable!

I wondered where that mask came from and I like this explanation.

Plenty, just posted about it in the novelization thread lol. I think it’s a book well worth picking up, just for those POV scenes alone. Was so interesting getting more perspective on their “view” of humanity.

About the only logical explanation I can think of. Although traeger only indicates that there were 2 known visits. Then again we see lex’s spear. Hell if I know 🤷‍♂️

If I remember right, the novelization for the original movie has some Predator POV stuff. I know the Predator2 novelization does.

Traeger only calls out those two specifically, but he never indicates they’re the only two.

This sounds almost as good as South China Sea

It's better than South China Sea, imo.  More characterization of the predator's thought process and motivations.

My review is now up :)

Great review btw, I agree 100%. 

Regarding the cloak..

Just finished the book. I really liked the predator as a character, and there were lots of chapters from his perspective and hints of lore to keep me happy! There were a couple bits that could prove intriguing for the movie...

I'm actually reading right now...I think it's just as good as South China Sea, with more detailed characterisation of the Yautja.

Pleasantly surprised by this
