Overview

Wilks was a space marine with a near-fatal flaw:  he had a heart.  Billie was a child, the only survivor of a far-flung colony outpost.  Thrown together in the last hellish night of an alien invasion, Billie and Wilks helped each other get out alive.  Thirteen years later Wilks is in prison, and Billie lives in a mental institution, the nightmare memories of the massacre at Rim seared into her mind.  Now the government has tapped Wilks to lead an expedition to the aliens' home planet to bring back a live alien.  But the competition on Earth to develop the aliens as a new weapons system is brutal.  When Wilks's team departs on their mission, a trained assassin trails them.  And what follows is no less than guerrilla warfare on the aliens' planet--and alien conquest on Earth!

A hot new series based on the 20th Century Fox science fiction mega-hit Aliens--from the bestselling author of the Conan adventures. When competition to develop the aliens as a new weapons system heats up on Earth, the government assigns Wilks, a space marine who survived an alien invasion of a far-flung colony outpost, to bring one back . . . alive.

    Scary Good Book

    The book Aliens, is a science fiction novel written by Steve Perry. It was a great book because it got into detail with each character and their life story. This book has a lot of action and suspense as well. Aliens takes place in outer space in a space ship in 2033.
    There was something wrong during the expedition to space. The crew members thought there were aliens or unknown species on the ship. They thought that because people randomly started getting killed on the ship and they saw weird creatures and eggs on their ship. Wilks, the crew chief on the ship was noticing death because all of the aliens on the ship started to multiply and kill everyone. Luckily he didn't get killed, he saved many people. Billie was a rookie crew member and was very scared because he wasn't expecting to see this. Jared was a very cocky person and he wasn't scared so he took his guns and killed the aliens. Steve Perry likes to write science fiction and horror books. He gets very into the suspense in this book. He tells it from Wilks' perspective. He switches points of view a lot during the story because he explains every character's past. If you like suspense or science fiction novels this book is for you. It has a creepy alien type horror about it. This is a great book.

    Great for Fanboys and Fangirls!!

    As an Alien series fan, I loved it. When I started reading it, I expexted nothing but gore. But when I started getting into deeper into the story, I realized I was in for a real treat. I recommend this and the 2 that follow for ALL Alien fans.

    This book was such a good read.

    There was lots of very exhilarating times during the book that kept you on the edge of your seat. You felt as if you were right there with them the whole time. The author was very descriptive when it came to describing everything in the book. When we face the aliens in the book you almost feel bad for the people in the book and never wish you were in that kinda of situation. The suspense was top of the line to, it was just so good and the author did a great job with that. I recommend this book if your into the sci-fi genre or are a big fan of the aliens movies cause this book delivers!

    A reviewer

    the study and science scenes are fascinating and Wilks scenes are. The Billie scenes lacked real emotion the sex scenes are horrible and were unecessary. the humor is something to be desired also The action though was relentless and it took on the economic and the population of earth aspects on very well.

    Good Book

    It's funny how I still can't put this book down, eventhough I've read it over and over again countless times. It was books like these that made me fall in love with reading when I was a child, and I owe Mr. Perry a sincere thank you for making such a exciting, exhilirating book. I can't wait to get the other 2 sequels, and maybe look for the prequel.

    Extremely Good

    Very good novel. One of the best I've ever read so far. Can't wait to get the rest of this trilogy, so I can finish up this series. I also want to read the rest of the ALiens novels as well as Predator: Concrete Jungle. This is a book for any Aliens or Predator fan who loves the genre.

    SCI-FI ACTION THAT WILL LEAVE YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT

    Aliens: Earth Hive is an action-packed book based on survival on an Aliens home-planet. This book is so good I had to read it a second time.

    A Great Book of the Paranormal . . .

    Okay, not really of the paranormal, but just as good. The books of these series (including such authors as Steve Perry, Stephani Danielle Perry, David Bischoff, Robert Sheckley, Yvonne Navarro) are extremely entertaining, and quite addicting. I've just finished Berserker (S.D. Perry), and I believe that's the last of the series. The series is based on the creature design of H.R. Giger, and such movies directed by Ridley Scott and Cameron. Wonderful series.

    No question if it is good

    Hey. I have not seen any of the movies what so ever. I just happend to read the books and fell in love with them. If you haven't seen the movies and hesitating about the books, don't, it is fun to read and want to read the whole series. Now tonight I will see the first aliens movies tonight and will go on the other ones tomorrow night and the other nights. Plus if I could, I would put more stars for this book. Meaning stars that would count on this rating. Well Enjoy.

    I thought it was great.

    This is the best non-stop-action book I have ever read. It went into the home planet and on earth. It was great.

    Entertaining

    The book Aliens: Earth Hive was a book that you do not want to put down. I like the alien series and this book was better than the last two alien movies. The only problem I had with the book was most of it did not take place on earth like the title implies.
