Format: Paperback
Firstly I have to say that I found this book totally by accident, but having read the Aliens works of Perry, Schofield, Bischoff and so on many years before I quickly grabbed this off the shelf hungrily when I saw it. And whilst Diane Carey has near to fifty published books - at time of printing - I have to say that I had not heard of this author before so approach the read with slight trepidation. Now though I have to say I really had nothing to worry about.

Basic story ? A crew of a space-ship accidentally let out a partial group of Aliens in a stasis container, causing the rest of the Aliens within to be automatically loaded onto another ship as no distress signal can be sent. The new ship - after a teen mutiny - is now fully run by a the group of teenagers, who have to try and survive one of Sci-fi's greatest foes. And low and behold, the their ship contains re-cloned Mammoths and Sabre-tooth's among the cargo of other livestock destined to populate nearby planetary systems.

I think the book thoroughly entertaining from start to finish, and finished it relatively quickly - which to me is always the sign of an enjoyable read. I would certainly have no hesitation about recommending this book to people that like the Alien/Aliens genre, but I feel traditional hard core fans may well either love it or hate it in equal number.

My only real let-down in this novel was that I felt that whist her knowledge of all things maritime is to be applauded, I was left thinking far too many pages were filled out with the details of the transfer of cargo from the ships and that this space in the relatively short book (284 pages) would have been better utilised in action sequences or other ways that enhanced the story.

It started off well, with the author giving nice details of the ship and the crew, but as it went on it went slowly down hill.
If you are a real aliens fan you will see the flaws, the main one for me was the xenomorphs were written as more animals, and not monsters, the unkillerable horror that they are.
there was no horror in this and I just felt let down. She seems more intrested in the ship and how it works then the main plot of the book.
