Summary

The first anthology of original short stories featuring the confluence of two iconic properties, as the Predators seek the ultimate prey: the Xenomorphs from Alien

The ultimate hunters, the Predators, are pitted against their ultimate prey, the Xenomorphs, with humans caught in the middle! Taking place on Earth and in distant space, these tales have been crafted by a who’s who of today’s most talented authors of the fantastic:

David Barnett • Roshni “Rush” Bhatia • Curtis C. Chen • Delilah S. Dawson • Mira Grant • Susanne L. Lambdin • Jess Landry • Yvonne Navarro • E. C. Myers • Scott Sigler • Maurice Broaddus • Chris Ryall •
Bryan Thomas Schmidt • Steven L. Sears • Jonathan Maberry and Louis Ozawa

With 15 new and original stories, this first-of-its-kind anthology is inspired by the events of the original Aliens vs. Predators movies, graphic novels, and novels. Includes a new story written by Jonathan Maberry and Louis Ozawa (“Hanzo” from the movie Predators) as Hanzo’s brother faces the eternal threats of both the Yautja and the Xenomorphs.

mostly good but let down by 1 narrator

Overall good stories and narration however one narrator ruins a few of the stories and made them unlistenable and those stories were left unheard which is a shame to the writer. the narration is terrible with every sentence seeming like a question, genuinely the worst narrator I've heard on audible.

if you're fan of aliens or/and predators then this is a good audiobook.

A few good stories, with questionable

So we have a collection of stories here, I'd say 50% of them held my interests and maybe half of those were decent.
Some of the narrating wasn't great.

The Alien stories are getting worse and worse and I feel it's due to the writings trying to create something new and different. You've got the two greatest monsters ever created, give me some pulse rifles and marines and I'll be happy, I dont need a soap drama, pregnancy or romance just action. Who's with me?

Let's hope it's not game over man for more Aliens Audio, bring back Dirk Maggs.

I think I've listened to all the books up to this point and it gives kind of an ending in an extended story to a lot of them really enjoyable

Avoid "Carbon Rites" story

If it weren't for the narrator of "Carbon Rites" I could have enjoyed this book. I cannot believe that someone chose this narrator, paid her and released this for everyone to hear. The condescending tone of her voice and the fact that the intonation sounds like out of this world (in a bad way) left a bitter taste. I couldn't listen to that story although I tried. As for the whole "woke" line, ignore the men that have been complaining and enjoy the stories.

A couple of gems

There are a few really good storys in here, the last one is excellent. Most of the perfomances are very good. A couple of frankly, embarrising to listen to, stories added for the sake of the now standard 'representation requirement' that were so vulgerly presented to the listener I actually laughed out loud.

Predators meets woke culture

Spoiler: Woke culture throughout. Great stories if you love the AVP universe, pervasive female tough girl trope. 5 stars.

Hodgepodge of Mediocre Stories

I own well over 100 titles on audible. This is the first that I've felt strongly enough about something to review it before finishing. It's a disjointed collection of short stories meant to be a love letter from various others. In practice, some stories are decent, some are outright bad. This also applies to the narrators. There's one particular female narrator that has this sing-songy tone to how she talks while putting forth almost no effort to give life to different character voices. I had to jump ship at that point.

In addition, I'm all for inclusion and support various communities, but at least have whatever persuasion they claim be a plot device rather than an attempt at LGBTQ friendly bingo.

Strong women vs. aliens

Book 3 of Predator "WAR" introduced a female protagonist organically, this is just a highlight of men and their wrong doing. I watched Dutch tossed around like a rag doll by a Predator, I watched countless space marines torn in half and mutilated by the Xenomorphs. However in this iteration of science fiction fantasy strong women rule the day.
This narrative only highlights males, arrogance, abusiveness and womanizing attributes. Women only save the day and never display any of these negative traits.
Ripley needed an Xo-suit to slay a Xenomorph, but this narrative would have me believe a fed up woman with a shotgun is the most powerful being in the galaxy.
Women can be powerful, however men can be powerful as well, not just cannon fodder for alien species.
The book became a bit much to swallow.

Just awful why even do this Mr. Maberry?

These stories are insulting and unnecessary. I'm a minority and the one thing thing that has always attracted me to AVP material is that it's naturally diverse. Strong female characters are real woman (Xeno Ripley excluded), not Wonder women capable of whooping Arnolds arse! Racisms exists, but it's not shoved down your throat with stupid references to events this future has no way of remembering or would be overly concerned about. The "various authors" are clearly NOT science fiction writers and the narrators read the stories like they didn't care. Unfortunately the reviews are right. This really is trash.

Woke Garbage!

don't waste your money or time! some of the worst stories in the AVP universe. especially the second story, it's almost painful to think these are professional writers.
