I have no idea if I will even finish the last of this trilogy. It's not all that great. They introduced an empathe as the main character, and nowhere in the Alien history I know has there been supernatural aspects. Plus his character was horribly unlikable. The story was weak, following on the feet of another weak story. The mine that was supposedly destroyed in the first book, Out of the Shadows, is uncovered and still intact? How is that possible when it was nuked? It was an entire book built on a weak, illogical premise.
