ALIENS : EARTH HIVE
New York : Bantam, 1992
is a girl in her twenties who lives in a hospital. She is always
having nightmares about aliens on Rim, her home planet. Then one
day she has a meeting with a marine named Wilks who was in her dreams and
he bails her out of the hospital. He then explains to her that the
aliens are real and they destroyed her planet -- she being the only survivor.
He also explains that he was the one who saved her on Rim, and that the
hospital tried to brainwash her but it didn't work. Billie and Wilks
go to the aliens' home planet with a crew of androids to get a specimen
for the government. A well known assassin is following them and planning
to use them as bait to get his own specimen. The assassin gets a
little more than he bargained for though and ends up paying the price.
Billie, Wilks, and one android are the only ones to get off the planet
before they nuke it. But when they get back to Earth, something is
wrong -- very wrong. If you want a science fiction novel with lots
of action, read ALIENS : EARTH HIVE by Steve Perry. Also look for
other books in the series including Aliens: Nightmare Asylum and Aliens:
The Female War. (Travis P., 8th grade student, Rundlett Middle School,
