A dramatic new Alien novel, as Weyland-Yutani seeks to recover from the failure of Hadley's Hope, and successfully weaponize the Xenomorphs
With the failure of Hadley's Hope, Weyland-Yutani has suffered a devastating setback—the loss of the Aliens they aggressively sought to exploit. Yet there's a reason the Company has risen to the top of the food chain. True to form, they have a redundancy already in place ... the facility known as The Cold Forge.
Remote station RB-232 has become their greatest asset in weaponizing the Xenomorphs. However, when Dorian Sudler is sent to RB-232 to assess their progress, he discovers that there's a spy aboard—someone who doesn't necessarily act in the company's best interests. For Dorian, this is the most unforgivable of sins. When found, the perpetrator will be eliminated with extreme prejudice. If unmasked, though, this person may be forced to destroy the entire station ... and everyone on board. That is, if the Xenomorphs don't do the job first.

The story has a great set up and has all the fixtures necessary for a great thriller. But none of the main characters are relatable, or even likable. And all the people who are worth rooting for get killed in nasty ways. Maybe it shouldn’t be such a surprise. The company is always characterized as greedy, shady, even evil. Based on this story, those traits also persist down to every employee of the company. Anyway, nobody gets the payback they deserve. And every time there’s a surprise and you think someone is going to finally get their comeuppance, prepare to be disappointed. That said, this would make a great series on Netflix what with all the personal drama and flawed characters.
