The first re-release of the older Aliens novels starts with this omnibus, and what a joy it was to read too. I’m a massive fan of the first two Alien films, so reading stories that clearly take inspiration from them was much fun. Check out my review.
The Complete Aliens Omnibus Volume 1 presents an enjoyable and solid story over the three novels despite some issues that creep in towards the end. It has interesting characters and fascinating world-building, especially when expanding details with the xenomorphs. Given that these novels are now over twenty years old they may be more suited to fans of the series rather than casual readers. I, however, found them to be just what I needed to read – they have a familiarity to them that is comforting, and they tread both new and old ground in doing so.
