really liked it

I do not have much to say about Aliens: Sea of Sorrows. It is part of the canonical Alien series, meaning the plot was outlined by Twentieth Century Fox to make it part of the movie continuity. That plot is remarkably similar to the movie Aliens. Decker (a descendant of Ripley) is coerced by a Weyland-Yutani representative to join an expedition of mercenaries (mainly former colonial marines) to retrieve a xenomorph. There are not a lot of surprises in the story. It is straightforward science fiction horror with plenty of action. Still, I found the book surprisingly entertaining. It is a fast paced story with intense action. The atmosphere is exactly what you want for an Alien story. The characters are deep enough to care when they die. Simply put, read this novel if you want to get a decent Alien fix.
