As a deputy commissioner for the ICC, Alan Decker’s job is to make sure the settlements on LV178 follow all the rules, keeping the colonists safe. But the planet known as New Galveston holds secrets, lurking deep beneath the toxic sands dubbed the Sea of Sorrows.

The Weyland-Yutani Corporation has secrets of its own, as Decker discovers when he is forced to join a team of mercenaries sent to investigate an ancient excavation. Somewhere in that long-forgotten dig lies the thing the company wants most in the universe—a living Xenomorph.
Decker doesn’t understand why they need him, until his own past comes back to haunt him. Centuries ago, his ancestor fought the Aliens, launching a bloody vendetta that was never satisfied. That was when the creatures swore revenge on the Destroyer…Ellen Ripley

The second installment of this trilogy series. Action packed and good character development. Quite a bit of foul language throughout. Violence on almost every page and some adult situation. Would not recommend this one for young or immature readers. As with the first book, some areas seemed a bit repetitive, particularly with battle after battle. Overall, an interesting read and a good tie in to the other books. There are 3 in this series and I plan to read them all.

TITLE: Alien: Sea of Sorrows AUTHOR: James A. Moore GENRE: Science fiction PAGES: 292 In 1979, director Ridley Scott released his movie Alien with the tag line “In space, no one can hear you scream.” Cinematic history was made, several sequels were done, a few video games made, comic books were made, books were written and there was a team up of sorts with another science fiction creation, Predator. What the movies all had in common was a fear born of darkness and claustrophobia, and certain death at the hands of a creature in which nightmares are made of. In Alien: Sea of Sorrows, James A. Moore has given us a worthy addition to the series. Here is the breakdown: Alan Decker’s job is to make sure the colonists on LV178 follow the rules and are kept safe, but an accident near the “Sea of Sorrows”, a toxic sandpit, shortens his career and gets him on the next transport home. While recuperating, he is Shanghai’ed by a group of mercenaries and brought back to LV178, also known as New Galveston. Decker has a unique gift and an interesting past that makes him very valuable to the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. Valuable enough for the corporation to basically blackmail him into service one more time or have his life, and the life of his family, irrevocably destroyed. There is something else that wants Decker for a totally different reason. An entire hive of aliens are out for his destruction for reasons of their own, and burn with an intense hatred against Decker. A hatred that burns throu8gh the sands of the Sea of Sorrows, and can be felt by Decker. Now, I will be the first to admit that I am a sucker for anything having to do with the Alien franchise. There have been times I was burned in the past, but I am happy to say this is NOT one of those times. Maybe I was too gentle when I said James A. Moore has given a “worthy” addition to the Alien franchise. This book is a fantastic addition to the franchise. Where this book really shines is that Mr. Moore has captured all of the fear and tension that are hallmarks of the series. He does not hold back, and as I read the book, the lights around me dimmed, I was sucked in, and terrified by the things in the shadows of my room. The revelation of the aliens unfolded (pardon the pun) the way that they have in the movies, and the attacks were more vicious that anything on film. I felt every attack, and I had to make sure that I was not the one left bleeding. 5+ out of 5 bookmarks!

very good read! I loved how they brought back WY(Weyland Yutani), seeing how they weren't in the fourth film. It fits in smoothly with the first  book as well. If you enjoyed the alien movies and the first book-(alien out of the shadows)- then you should read this.

Excellent Alien story.  Fits right in the movie trilogy stories!  Scarey and shows human vulnerability to another species!   Soldiers or mercenaries do not fair well with aliens!  Cannot wait for another book like this.
