A tale of Ataegina

Official, canonical tie-in novel in the ALIENS franchise.

Ataegina was an isolated world of medieval castles, varied cultures and conquests, vibrant until the demons rose and spread relentless destruction. Swarms of lethal creatures with black husks, murderous claws, barbed tails and dreaded “tooth-tongues” raged through the lowlands, killing ninety percent of the planet’s population. Terrified survivors fled to hidden mountain keeps where they eke out a meager existence. When a trio of young warriors discovers a new weapon, they see a chance to end this curse. To save humanity, the trio must fight their way to the tunnels of Black Smoke Mountain — the lair of the mythical Demon Mother.

About The Author


  1. Scott

    The only novel in the Aliens and Predator universes I’ve listened to multiple times, the fresh take really makes it stand out from all the rest.
    I’m sure there are others like me that would love to read more of the events leading up to this novel, there’s so much to explore in the 300+ years between the events on the ship and the start of the story. There’s a whole future for their civilisation to explore too.
    If you ever choose to re-visit the world you’ve created, I’m sure we’ll be in for a great adventure.

    Just started this book so I’m not very far in atall but absolutely loving it already just after the first few pages, I’m just interested to know, what year is this meant to be set in? Or will I find that out after reading more?

      Mike: I’m thrilled you are enjoying it. We haven’t publicly released the year the story occurs, as that detracts from the situation the characters are in. You won’t find out in this book.

        Ahhh haha, loving the mystery, thanks Scott, it’s a fantastic book so far so I guess I’ll Just keep reading and try and work out myself what year it’s set in 🤔. Keep up the good work my friend, your clearly a very talented man 👍

    Brilliant character and plot development. Half way through “Aliens: Phalanx” we watched Frank Miller’s film “300” (Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC); that has added another dimension to the enjoyment of Scott’s Aliens novel.
