Description-

  • An original young adult novel of the Alien universe

    Olivia and her twin sister Viola have been dragged around the universe for as long as they can remember. Their parents, both xenobiologists, are always in high demand for their research into obscure alien biology.

    Just settled on a new colony world, they discover an alien threat unlike anything they've ever seen. And suddenly the sisters' world is ripped apart.

    On the run from terrifying aliens, Olivia's knowledge of xenobiology and determination to protect her sister are her only weapons as the colony collapses into chaos. But then a shocking family secret bursts open—one that's as horrifying to Olivia as the aliens surrounding them.

    The creatures infiltrate the rich wildlife on this untouched colony world—and quickly start adapting. Olivia's going to have to adapt, too, if she's going to survive...

Reviews-

  • Kirkus

    An electrifying adventure set in the Alien universe. It's not easy having two renowned xenobiologists for parents: Hopping from planet to planet can be a drag. But 17-year-old Olivia Shipp has spent her life learning about each planet's magnificent flora and fauna and never fails to find wonder wherever they go. Unfortunately, her beloved twin sister, Viola, has a debilitating autoimmune disorder, which keeps her mostly indoors. Now they're on an "Earth-like planet" called Zagreus, and Olivia is crushing hard on beautiful colonist Kora Burton. When Kora nearly gets devoured by a lion-worm on their first date, Olivia figures things can only get better from there, right? Wrong. Olivia's father transmits a shocking message from a dead ship that he was sent to scout: Something deadly has escaped and is heading straight for Zagreus. Those familiar with Alien mythology know what happens when famously vicious creatures and humans clash, so expect generous blood and gore. Olivia and Kora are smart, strong young women, and their romance, born in the midst of unspeakable horror, is believable. This swift survival tale is peppered with heart-stopping chase scenes and twists that stay true to the Alien 'verse. The Shipps are white, and Kora is brown skinned and biracial, with a white mother and a father of unidentified ethnicity. A worthy and terrifying addition to a classic sci-fi/horror franchise that will appeal to a new generation of fans. (Science fiction. 14-18)
