Predator - Incursion
The Rage War 1
Predator ships stream into human space in unprecedented numbers. The Colonial Marines, controlled by Weyland-Yutani, respond to the incursion, thus entering the Rage War.
This terrifying assault by the Yautja cannot go unchallenged, yet the cost of combat is high. Predators are master combatants, and each encounter yields a high body count. Then when Lt. Johnny Mains and his marines—the VoidLarks—enter the fray, they discover an enemy deadlier than any could imagine.
Book one in an epic trilogy that continues in ALIEN: INVASION and concludes in ALIENS VS. PREDATOR: ARMAGEDDON. The universe will forever be changed.
Page turner from beginning to end!
Too slow, too boring
I bought all three books.
Quit half way through the first one and deleted the others.
As a fan of Alien and Predator it is hard to accept new generations of writers as each portray a universe in their own way and you have to accept how it's told.
Lebbon's take has invigorated the franchise and nicely (if not perfectly) incorporated each specie into the same universe with his story telling. Making sure there is a huge gap between when all the films played off, he made smple space to draw you into hundreds of years of space development that could've enriched this series to where he starts off.
Detailed character backgrounds immerses you in their world and the in-the-heat-of-action battle descriptions keeps you the edge of your seat.
I full trust that this series can be a superb blockbuster with casual readers and fans alike. I trust the next installment will as exciting as this novel.
