This book is the beginning of a fun series. We get to see into the predators' background and society in a way that doesn't make them look evil and nasty like the movies. They are honor-bound but still a warrior based society. We are further satitsfied by being able to learn various words of the yuatja language. It's a well done book and a great adventure that goes deeper than the comics. You can also pick up traces of the story that influenced the writing for the movie AvP set in modern day. Noguchi and Lex (from the movie) are very similar characters in these circumstances. Well done and the other books are just as enjoyable.
This book will fit nicely in most Sci-Fi libraries. With a good portion of the stories emphasis on a horror side of the Sci-Fi story type it can be a good read for any fan of the Alien or Predator series of books. If you have read the comic don't worry you will still find a lot of new insight into the story and backgrounds of the human and predator culture.
