When Ellen Ripley finally returns to Earth, she learns that the planet LV-426—now called Acheron—has been colonized. But LV-426 is where Ripley and the crew of the Nostromo found the original Xenomorph—the killing machine known as the Alien.

Protected by the Colonial Marines, the colonists seek to terraform the storm-swept planet. Two such residents are Anne and Russell Jorden, seeking a fortune that eluded them on Earth. On Acheron, Anne gives birth to the colony’s first newborn. Rebecca Jordan, also known as Newt.

The wildcatters discover a vast, decaying spaceship. The horseshoe-shaped vessel is of particular interest to Weyland-Yutani, and may be the answer to their dreams. But what Anne and Russ find on board proves to be the stuff, not of dreams, but of nightmares.

As a long time Alien fan, this book answers the questions about what was happening on LV426 during the time Ripley was drifting in space and then after Carter sent the message to investigate the alien craft. There are some differences, but the characterizations and side stories are great. This would be an awesome movie! Loved it. More please!!

Excellent tie-in between the book/movie Alien and Aliens. You learn about what happened to the colonists of LV426 during the time Ripley was drifting in space after destroying the Nostromo. Get an in-depth look at Newt and her family during that time. Action packed. The description of the aliens is much more detailed than in other books I've read. Couldn't put it down. Would highly recommend this book to any fan of the Alien series.
