Just finished the audiobook. Initially I was skeptical of the premise, but didn't realize how refreshing this take would be on the franchise. There were characters who I truly hated because Sigler did a phenomenal job making them the villains. There were other characters who I found annoying, but ended up liking them more and more as the story progressed. The character development and depth he gave to the trio was great. I tend to buy audiobooks simply because of all of my driving for work. Sometimes the performer can kill a good book, but Bronson Pinchot did an amazing job and provided a lot of variety to the voices of each character.

I haven't read all of the Alien novels, but this and Cold Forge are by far my favorites for story and audio performance.

Just finished! Wow that was quite the exciting ride! Far from your typical Aliens story but the tension was thick, the action was epic and the characters/world was well fleshed out. This book legit made my heart pound. Well done Mr. Sigler!

A bit. Scott and I exchanged a couple of emails while he was writing but I didn't see a draft.

Great interview Hicks! Scott mentioned “300” being an influence which is something I definitely thought while reading

@Kadran
:) "I had a legitimate fangasm"
This makes me happy!

Trying to reply to some of these comments, as you can tell I'm an idiot when it comes to working a message board...

"Unbelievably good."

If this was in reference to PHALANX, thanks!

I'm 25% through. It's well crafted and the world building is exceptional. Ready for some xeno action though.

I always felt 300 mixed with xenos was a good concept, as well as a Leonidas pitted against a Predator.

With the exception of COLD FORGE, every Alien novel so far for me has been mediocre at best and utter shite at worst.
PHALANX is hands down the best Alien novel. Even better than COLD FORGE and didn’t think that novel would be beaten.
PHALANX meet everyone of my expectations and then surpassed them. Just brilliant!
