Alien: River of Pain, the latest full-cast recording of the canonical Alien novel series, is now available from Amazon’s audiobook service, Audible.
Golden Globe-nominated Anna Friel, Alexander Siddig, Michelle Ryan, Colin Salmon, Marc Warren and Philip Glenister star alongside special guest star William Hope who returns as Lt. Gorman from James Cameron’s Aliens.
Ellen Ripley finally returns to Earth, only to discover that LV-426 – where the crew of the Nostromo first came into contact with the deadly xenomorphs – has been renamed Acheron.
Protected by Colonial Marines, the colonists seek to terraform the storm-swept planet against all the odds.
But in the face of brutal living conditions and the daily struggles of a new world, there is humanity and hope. Anne and Russell Jorden – two colonists who are seeking a fortune that eluded them on Earth – are expecting their firstborn child.
The birth of Rebecca Jorden, known to her family as Newt, is a cause for celebration. But as the colony grows and expands, so, too, do the political struggles between a small detachment of Colonial Marines and the Weyland-Yutani scientists posted on Acheron.
Willing to overlook their orders in order to serve the Company’s interests, these scientists have another far more sinister agenda – to covertly capture a living Alien.
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 Russell find onboard proves to be the stuff not of dreams but of nightmares.
