The author of the book I'm reading read my post about it, now that's cool
Very nice of you to visit the foruns and care about the fans' opinions.
I'll start chapter 39 tonight, so far I'm having a great time with the book!
I hope Titan hires you to write a Predator novel too, would love to see that, if you would be interested in writing one.
Also, gotta love the little Vootervert Alien!
Edit: Finished reading it. It was a great read! The last Alien novel I've read was Cold Forge, and while I loved Cold Forge for different reasons, Phalanx was more fun to read. It's nice how the novel changes from being very suspenseful with the horrifying reality of the runners of Lemeth's Hold to the epic action packed confrontations from the final chapters. Liyahs character arch was also really well done, along with the relationship with her friends, I started not so sure about them, but ended up rooting for them all. The World building also made me buy the story, at the beggining I was wondering all the time when and where it took place, but eventually I was pulled into that world and stopped wondering about that, only to be awarded with the anwsers near the end.
I don't have much knowledge on real medieval battle tactics, only a few Age of Empires 2 unit counters and stuff, but fans of that will probably get a kick out of this, since it appears Sigler put a lot of effort into it.
Anyway, loved the book, highly recommend it!
