If you love the Alien movies you must read Siberia 56

If you are a fan of Ridley Scott’s classic Alien movies, you will definitely want to pick up a copy of Siberia 56. Siberia is an inhospitable world. Temperatures plummet to extremes far below zero. The atmosphere is breathable, but one breath at these temperatures will kill. If you manage to survive the cold, powerful and terrifying predators abound. The worst of which is the Morbius - huge, vicious and invisible. The entirety of the first mission to Siberia was wiped out by one.
It is now the 13th mission to Siberia, and 13 is not a lucky number. The shuttle bringing new personnel crashes 150 miles from base. The terrain is beautiful but treacherous and their likelihood of survival is minimal as they must travel on foot. Only of the crew survives, but the pulse pounding terror has only begun. Humans were not the first intelligent life form to visit Siberia, but they may be the last.
Siberia 56 kept me on the edge of my seat with its breathtaking visuals and action packed storyline. The Morbius is truly horrific just like the alien from the Aliens movies. Siberia 56 is a fantastic blend of science fiction and horror.
5 / 5
I received a copy of Siberia 56 from the publisher and Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Description It is the age of space exploration, and five scientists travel 80 million light years from home to study the planet of Siberia, the location of Earth’s 56th colony. Completely covered with dense snow and steep mountains, Siberia’s poles reach temperatures of -300° F with icy winds of close to 200 mph.
After their shuttle crashes, the surviving scientists must walk across hundreds of miles of frozen wasteland to find the terrain basecamp. Between the biting cold, devastating snow storms, and horrific alien creatures, their chances of survival are close to absolute zero. In Siberia 56, author Christophe Bec imagines a hostile and fascinating world that harkens to the very best of the science fiction and horror genres. Superbly illustrated by Alexis Sentenac, this stunning work offers a chilling tale of survival in the vast recesses of a dying planet.
