A group of wildcat planetary prospectors plant their flag on a distant new world, rich in land, resources . . . and the greatest archaeological discovery in history, an ancient complex of impossible proportions carved deep within the living rock, a mind-numbing labyrinth of passages, ramps, bridges, and galleries that seems to extend limitlessly. But as the exploration of the leviathan dead city proceeds deeper and deeper, the members of the team slowly begin to lose their grip on reality, and madness gives way to fear as the explorers begin to disappear. Something else lives within the necropolis, a faceless horror as deadly and merciless as space itself, a lethal terror that has waited centuries to awake . . . and destroy.

I seriously dug this book. Arcudi has a solid grasp on what makes Aliens a fun and exciting franchise. There are serious twists and turns that I won't reveal here, but they make the book a real page-turner!
I totally dig the art style and the colors are absolutely incredible. From the stale darkness of deep space to the excitement of a firefight to the bloody encounters with the creatures, the art is consistently good.
