The Aliens vs. Predator novel series is a trilogy of novels that belong to the fictional crossover franchise of Alien vs. Predator, based on the original Aliens vs. Predator comic book series by Dark Horse Comics.

Plot overview[edit]

Prey[edit]

A clan of Predators (known as yautja in this series) 'seeds' the planet Ryushi with a clutch of Alien eggs, intending to hunt the adult "drone" stage of the "xenomorphs". Chaos ruins the carefully planned hunt when Predator and Alien encounter Ryushi's human colonists, led by reluctant corporate executive Machiko Noguchi.

Hunter's Planet[edit]

Noguchi receives an offer by a wealthy man named Livermore Evanston to attend his own hunter paradise on the planet Blior which will be known to Noguchi as the deadliest planet of all space.

War[edit]

On a swamp planet, entitled Bunda, Noguchi must rescue human survivors who are in the middle of the Predator raid. The events of this story take place in between Prey and Hunter's Planet.

Main characters[edit]

  • Machiko Noguchi – The protagonist of the series, Machiko is a human female of Japanese descent who lived and hunted with members of the Predator species. She is both intelligent and athletic, and skilled in firearms, personal defense and martial arts. After the colony of Ryushi was destroyed, Machiko desired a life of hunting but could not connect with the Predator species as they were ruthless hunters who viewed her with contempt. In result, Machiko turns against the Predators when they begin to hunt humans for sport.
