Labyrinth Aliens

The space station Innominata has one problem men die there Only no one really knows it or at least no one who counts Certainly Colonel Doctor Tony Crespi has no idea; he is simply eager to work with the infamous Doctor Paul Church Aliens Novels Book 6 Labyrinth 0 553 57491 4After suffering through the poorly written and almost identical to one another Genocide and Alien Harvest I have to praise Labyrinth for returning to the basics of the first three books of the series and for understanding what really drives the suspense and terror in the alien universe Labyrinth has the closed spaces and the inability to escape that is so crucial for suspense When a space inhabited by aliens isn t closed but rather entered into voluntarily see Genocide and Alien Harvest the reader doesn t feel pity for the victims so much as open contempt doubly so if the reasons for deliberately exposing themselves to such danger are stupid greedy and ill conceived Perry seems to recognize this and returns us back to the basics of Nightmare Asylum and Alien Resurrection by giving us a mad scientist intent on betraying his own race by feeding his fellow humans to the aliens for breeding purposesThis sense of betrayal and horror is crucial to the series a fact that all the aliens movies explored thoroughly As horrific as the aliens are there reaches a point of saturation where the prospect of being eaten or used as a breeder is no longer as frightening as it once was at least in part because the shock aspect has dissipated A mad scientist who mutilates his subjects in horrific ways provides much needed shock value plus the added horror of being used as an experiment against your will unable to die even breeders have the certainty that eventually their suffering will end and that even if you somehow find a way to die your body would still be horribly desecrated Add to that the potent sense of outrage that a human would so deeply betray his race whilst other humans would meekly facilitate his madness and you have the nice makings of a thriller Stick all that on a remote space station add a thick layer of mystery to the whole proceedings and your book practically writes itselfUnfortunately Perry s writing style in this novel seems extremely mediocre The style is jumpy and self conscious often trying to manufacture suspense by simply not telling the reader what is going on Scenes of discovery read like something akin to paraphrase She walked into the room and her heart suddenly leapt into her chest All her worst nightmares had come true He really was insane a madman and this proved it She just couldn t believe what she saw No really this is huge very very big and you are just going to die when you read what she saw Are you ready Ok here it is and so on Perry doesn t trust the reader enough to reveal terrors openly and without a fake suspenseful buildup a techniue that becomes tiresome uickly Perry has also tackled the classic Why isn t the main character catching on when the reader already has hurdle that writers so often face by falling back on the standby of making the main character too stupid to tie his own shoes Really you can t have your main villain doing the literary euivalent of cackling freuently twirling his mustache and insisting that people call him DOCTOR EVIL and then have your main character just totally fail to catch on without him looking like a complete moron I understand the intent the desire to set up a dichotomy where we are forced to confront the advantages of immoral research versus the importance of doing the right thing but it just doesn t work and the writing comes off as blunt and ham fisted This is probably as good a time as any to note that Perry also seems strangely interested in sexual violence and violence against women She is very fond of using the concept of rape in hyperbole as in his nose was raped by the stench That sone way to put it I guess She s also very intent on having the often hysterical and screaming despite being a trained marine heroine being physically choked and lifted by powerful men particularly if they have a sexual interest in her As a reader I could have done without this recurring aspect of the novelMy final criticism of Perry s writing style is that she seems not to understand the concept of Chekhov s gun that if an object or concept is introduced in a story it must be utilized by the end of the story or else it ought not have been there in the first place Perry provides the good guys at the very beginning with a perfect trump card they have complete and total backing by the military hierarchy to investigate the mad scientist and do whatever they deem necessary to stop him which is a big change from the usual little guy bucks the evil establishment theme However the fact that the good guys never use their trump card and indeed never even consider using their trump card is incredibly frustrating and pointless The fact is the trump card is never again mentioned outside the opening chapter so it should have been removed entirely If a trump card is introduced it MUST be used and if it is not then there at least has to be a very good reason why not This never again mentioned trump card also completely undermines the bad ending that this book ends on because if the mad scientist was already under suspicion and investigation he wouldn t escape detection indefinitely nor would he be able to frame the good guys in any way that would stick after a full investigation So basically we get an unused trump card which makes the good guys look stupid because they have forgotten its existence and makes the ending completely implausible WhyHaving said all that here are the things I did like about this book First it was creepy and scary like a good aliens book should be There s a lot of good suspense and the evil scientist surprises are pleasantly horrifying even if the main characters do stubbornly refuse to recognize obvious evil for what it is Second the entire book moves at a good clip There are a whole lot of flashbacks but they are nicely done and with a plethora of skin crawling details so that s a plus Third the term royal jelly does not to my knowledge appear anywhere in this book at all I am so very glad to see that we ve decided to drop that fruitless side plot and get back to the basics which is that
