I was watching a cheezy SyFy movie in my mind, and loved it. You will too.

There is a lot of action in this. And if you're craving anything from this franchise then you won't be too disappointed. There were a few new things I liked such as the descriptions of a few new alien world beings and life forms.
Loved most of the characters and hated one appropriately.
I only wish a few things:
1) he had been a little more imaginative with the story and that it didn't hold so many things in common with Mass Effect.
2) Wish he had come up with more elaborate language for the technology and sought a scientific adviser for new terms. That would have raised the level of this sci-fi to Classic level. The repetition of all the acid splashes got a little old. Like, 'yeah, ok, we are the lowest forms of advanced sentient space-faring beings and we burn easy. Got it.' But really, he kind of took one idea and beat it to death in present day language with only one or two new phrases.
Generally, his is a good placeholder for my insatiable appetite for space opera. But, he could take some notes from descriptive authors in the genre.
3)The narrator could be heard swallowing a few times. It's not enough to make those of us with sensitivity to mouth noises throw away the whole experience, but really, if he does that with other books I'd rather read the print.

This delivers in just the way you need a final book of the series to deliver. Lots of action, lots of battles, a fitting conclusion and suitable endings for the main characters. I struggled at the start of this series with the role that the aliens were given but if you have enjoyed the previous two books then I think you'll be happy with the quality of the conclusion. There is nothing worse than getting through to the final book of the series and being let down. Luckily Lebbon and Chancer close this one off nicely.

I NEVER do spoilers in my reviews !!!! So can,t go into too much detail.......BUT, suffice to say that this book is an EPIC FINALE, to the Rage War Trilogy !!! I feel also that the ending has definitely left the door open for follow-on books !?!
I am a HUGE Fan of Tim Lebbon, from these Alien storyline books, to his Star Wars books & if course his Own fantasy books (*like "The Fallen" !!) And I look eagerly forward to future books by him !!!
John Chancer is a FANTASTIC Narrator, & was possibly the best choice for this Trilogy, his voice changes for the different characters was excellent & really helps define each character in the book !! I will definitely look for more books that he has narrated in future purchases !!!!
This is NOT a stand-alone novel, the preceding books are a MUST in order to enjoy them all to Their fullest !!!
This Trilogy is also a MUST, for Fans of either the Alien storyline &or Predator storyline !!!! And I leave desperately hoping for more................

If you could sum up Alien vs. Predator: Armageddon in three words, what would they be?
Fast, furious and entertaining.
What did you like best about this story?
It was all quite good, seeing how the aliens, humans and predators fit into this story.
Which character – as performed by John Chancer – was your favourite?
I can not pin down one character, he was very good and I could not wait for the next chapter to start.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
If you loved the book, you will kill for the movie.
Any additional comments?
Look if you like aliens and predators then you should like this book - just read or listen to books one and two first.
