Aliens Novels: Book 7, Rogue / 0-553-56442-0

When I noted in my review for the 5th aliens books ("Alien Harvest") that the plot was almost functionally identical to that of the 4th book ("Genocide"), I had not suspected that we would see a similar pattern with the 6th and 7th books ("Labyrinth" and "Rogue"), and yet we do. The overlaps in basic plot are so strong that a cynical person might suspect the aliens' franchise holder of assigning the same plot to multiple authors and just publishing wha

The book opens with this dedication: "For Steve Perry, one of the finest writers of them all."

This ain't Shakespeare, it is precisely what you would expect from judging the book by its cover. It's a couple of hours of frivolous fun.

A fun, simple action novel with aliens, marines, a crazy professor and a transport ship captain who gets involved into all the craziness. Because the story is short, the whole plot does not rise above the average action SF book. There are no clever sub plots and the characters have some personality, but nothing special. Still, I enjoyed the book and I would like to read more books in this series.

Read it back in middle school. Enjoyed it then, along with several other Aliens, Predator, and Aliens vs. Predator books, but I probably wouldn't read it again.
