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 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.

Wokeness has ruined another genre!

Where do I begin??

70% of the stories are read by women.-This isn’t a problem but they are on the whole terrible at their job!!!
One continuously ends every sentence with a question mark.

One of the stories is about a female predator struggling against the oppressive ‘patriarchal’ predator hierarchy.

Another story manages to bring slavery and racial politics to the forefront of the storyline,

Well done authors and producers, you’ve ruined a well-loved storyline which I’ve been reading and watching for over 20 years, well done.(sarcasm).

Some excellent stories some meh stories.

Some stories are outstanding especially the last one. But some stories need something else. They seem to miss the point of Aliens vs predator.
But what do I know I'm usually wrong usually.

Woke Politics Strike Again

Woke? Check. Trans superhero? Check. Empowered woman of color governed by evil blonde-haired, blue-eyed Karen, who has literal racial memories of the American south? Check. It would appear that not even space monsters are safe from the ever-encroaching social justice infestation. Sad, because there are several excellent stories here worth listening to. Maybe this is just another version of Burke's plan: smuggle the few bits of good fiction inside the body of progressive politics to get it past quarantine.

Diversity vs. Alien vs. Equity vs Predator

This book rubs it in your face that the individual stories "were written by a diverse group of authors from various races, ethnicities, and gender identities." Perfect example of "go woke, go broke" trash. Don't buy this book...wait for it to stream on YouTube if you're that interested.

Predators meets woke culture

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

Woke!

I like most of the stories and some characters but some of the stories are blatantly saying all white people are evil example (night doctors) starts out saying it. Some stories are really good. A lot of strong female protagonists And a transgender which could have been written in better to fit the narrative.

I am a huge aliens/predator fan. Every time I see a book come out , I either preorder or buy. This is the first time I returned a book in this universe. Books complete trash , Woke garbage installed into the alien universe
Not worth a free listen , let alone a credit

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.
