Aliens Novels Book 3 The Female War 0 553 56159 6Having thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the Aliens series Earth Hive and Nightmare Asylum I have mixed feelings about this bookWe join the series almost precisely where we left off in Nightmare Asylum with Wilks Bille and Ripley mooning about on the lunar rescue station and plotting how they can help in the grand scheme of human against alien Ripley has come up with a daring plan that involves gathering together the Dreamers on the lunar station those empaths who pick up the telepathic communications of the aliens in their dreams for a mission that will ultimately doom the aliens on Earth to extinction A great deal of attention is lavished on the supporting characters making this motley crew of Dreamers the most fleshed out supporting characters in the series so far and providing me with actual concern that they might die on the mission rather than mentally consigning them off as anonymous cannon fodder like so many before them The plot expositions is nicely done as well with the authors considering carefully the logistics of their plan and how to pull off the technical details of Ripley s daring and drastic scheme These details are a case of too little too late though because the actual plot of Female War is very thin verging on the ridiculous You see empaths sense the presence of aliens which is why Dreamers have been used in the past to pinpoint nearby alien nests However it turns out that the empaths have not been sensing the nearby alien nests directly but have rather been picking up the ambient telepathy waves directed at the nearby aliens from the ueen of ueens o back on their home planet not the home planet from Earth Hive incidentally The o knows where each of her children are in the universe and send them constant telepathic commands to come back to her The Dreamers are able to pick up these commands and pinpoint the location of the home world by remembering star layouts from their dreams Ripley realizes that if the o can be kidnapped from the home world and dropped on Earth then all the aliens will flock to her in a single localized spot and it ll just be the work of a few nukes to take care of the alien infestation forever This plot has than a few problems associated with it not the least of which is WHY the o sends this constant signal what s the point of having all your drones gathered to you rather than spreading out hunting and perpetuating the species Some half hearted attempts are made to suggest that the aliens might be bio weapons with the suggestion that the o might be some kind of return beacon or something but this never really pans out and frankly seems somewhat silly Anyway Ripley decides to gather up all the Dreamers or as many as are game hijack a ship from the lunar station travel to the alien home world kidnap the o drop her off on Earth and then set off a long dismantled nuclear bomb to wipe out the aliens when they gather at critical mass Easy peasy To heighten the tension and provide motivation the authors include a pretty implausible scenario the military is still sending regular sorties down to Earth to engage the aliens despite the ridiculous odds of a dozen marines against a planet wide infestation and to look for survivors despite the fact that there really shouldn t be any at this point and despite the serious risk of contamination of the lunar station if one is infected These sorties however give a useful excuse to take the stolen transport ship out on maneuvers so we let it pass The ship of Dreamers travels to the home world in relative peace and uiet and here is where I get a little annoyed The theme of the victim hunting the hunter via a telepathic link is a time honored tradition used at least as far back as Dracula However it is reasonable to pose as Stoker does several serious uestions Is the link merely one way or does the hunter have full knowledge of the victim s plans and is laying in wait for them Are the actions of the victim truly their own if they are under telepathic influence Will the telepathic victims be able to maintain their own minds in the overwhelming presence of the hunter These are uestions that can and should be posed and the authors hint at a possible twist Did the o call them to her intentionally Are their plans really hers Is the o aware of their plans and prepared for their arrival All these hinted uestions are then completely discarded which really bugs me At the very least a few non dreamers should have been brought along as backup in case the dreamers lost control of themselves on the planet but no Then the silly become ludicrous the o is not buried deep within a mountain surrounded by thousands of drones but rather is resting placidly on the planet s surface readily available for Ripley to hover a ship over her goad her into a rage and trick her into scrambling up into the ship Despite the fact that even the drones on this planet are giant sized the group escapes with implausibly minor casualties Several point blank shots to the aliens fail to slosh gallons of acid over the main characters a serendipitous fact that they chalk up to extraordinarily good luck The o thus secure they race back to Earth on the double There the plan is to drop the o off near the main cluster of nukes hope to god that she nests in that general area and wire the nukes to go off after a six month delay allowing most all of the aliens to travel to this new nest In the meantime Ripley and Billie decide to rescue the last little girl on planet Earth and will do their best Rambo impersonations fighting off waves and waves of hundreds of stampeding aliens without sustaining a single major injuryIf this weren t enough I have to register a complaint with regard to Ripley in this book A twist has been introduced in order to explain the one uestion I didn t care about How can Ripley be here when she s supposed to be dying on the prison planet in Alien 3 whilst ignoring the massive amount of new uestions this ridiculous twist brings up not the least of which being Who What Where When How and Why This is in my opinion an inexcusably sloppy way to resolve a continuity problem and I would have preferred they just stick with the time honored tradition that books don t have to match movies Anyway they are still stuck with a problem if they want to match the movies because there s really no way to reconcile the problem that the cast of Alien Resurrection have never seen or heard of the aliens despite the fact that according to the books they destroyed Earth and nearly wiped out humanityReally I didn t regret reading this book The writing was okay even if the plot was ridiculous and sometimes rushed It s worth a look if you just want to finish out the tale of Wilks and Billie from the first two novels However if you re not already a big fan there s nothing really here for you And even if you are a fan most of the alien details included here are just nonsensical and stupid which may well leave you frustrated Ana Mardoll

Man do I have regrets I was under the impression that the Steve Perry Aliens books were good and bought several of the books in the series beyond theirs to see how they ranked I like the franchise and I was curious to see how authors could work beyond the stories in the movies So far the consensus seems to be Not so wellLike the first two books in this trilogy The Female War is an adaptation of a comic written by different people so some of the ridiculous plot points should be blamed on them not the Perrys But the whole idea of capturing the Boss alien ueen transporting her to Earth and putting her in one place so all the other aliens would flock to her and they could bomb that one location instead of the entire planet to exterminate the aliens seems like it s pushing credibility too much Especially since Ripley is involvedOh yeah Ripley is one of the main characters of the book You may be asking yourself why she would make an appearance since the deaths of Hicks and Newt at the start of Alien forced the publisher to retcon their characters to Billie and Wilks She s alive and well here many years after the end of that movie and they didn t retcon anything to get her there What could possibly have happened to bring her backIf you think about it long enough ten seconds maybe with Alien in mind you ll figure it outTo the Perrys credit they circle back to a theme raised in the first book and give the book a nice point Still the number of run on sentences throughout the book make me want to take that credit backAlso Billie and Wilks have a weird attraction going on for each other here which is skeevy as hell when you consider that they started out as Newt and Hicks and have the same backgrounds and ages as those characters It s Heinleinesue and it creeps me outOh oh and I almost forgot to mention how they and the crew avoid being damaged by an EMP they turn off all electronics before it bursts THAT S NOT HOW IT WORKSTo top it off I read an e book edition of this book and the number of typos and OCR errors was plentiful That s beyond acceptable to me Hire a dang copy reader and fix themI have the rest of these books to read and I m hoping the uality will change with some new authors Most of them are still based on comics but I have high hopes at least for the Yvonne Navarro title I just have to make it that far without giving up Detective Wanda Wolfe entire planet to Riverside Sen w wysokiej rozdzielczości exterminate the aliens seems like it s pushing credibility too much Especially since Ripley is involvedOh yeah Ripley is one of the main characters of the book You may be asking yourself why she would make an appearance since the deaths of Hicks and Newt at the start of Alien forced the publisher to retcon their characters to Billie and Wilks She s alive and well here many years after the Zawieszenie niewiary enough ten seconds maybe with Alien in mind you ll figure it outTo the Perrys credit they circle back to a theme raised in the first book and give the book a nice point Still the number of run on sentences throughout the book make me want to take that credit backAlso Billie and Wilks have a weird attraction going on for Healing Sex A Mind Body Approach to Healing Sexual Trauma each other here which is skeevy as hell when you consider that they started out as Newt and Hicks and have the same backgrounds and ages as those characters It s Heinleinesue and it creeps me outOh oh and I almost forgot to mention how they and the crew avoid being damaged by an EMP they turn off all Spark Stronger #3 electronics before it bursts THAT S NOT HOW IT WORKSTo top it off I read an Wonder Woman and Philosophy e book Sozialismus Und Kapitalistische Gesellschaftsordnung edition of this book and the number of typos and OCR Sponsor Tom 1 Sponsor #1 errors was plentiful That s beyond acceptable to me Hire a dang copy reader and fix themI have the rest of these books to read and I m hoping the uality will change with some new authors Most of them are still based on comics but I have high hopes at least for the Yvonne Navarro title I just have to make it that far without giving up

This is a great adaptation of the comic series Aliens Earth War and I liked how both Steve and Stephaine wove the last chapter of the trilogy togeather as well as explained how Ripley could ve survived her death on Fury 161 it is apparent that this trilogy takes place during the 200 hundred years between Alien 3 and Alien Resurrection and as far as I am conserned it should ve been Alien 4 instead of Resurrection which still could ve come later but that s not saying that this trilogy still couldn t be made into motion pictures and like Prometheus it would bring the Alien saga back in a big way
