While a moon hurtles toward certain destruction, taking with it a Weyland-Yutani bioweapons lab, talks on a nearby colony could lead to all-out war among the colonies.
Hygeia, an outer rim colony, is doomed as the moon on which it was built hurtles toward an inevitable collision with the dead planet Hephaestus. When a distress signal arrives from a Weyland-Yutani biowarfare outpost near the colony, a desperate plan is launched to evacuate the trapped scientists and colonists. Their destination: LV-846, a key United Americas colony where high-level talks are scheduled to address the galaxy-wide hostilities between the colonies. Once there, the evacuees, including a contingent of Colonial Marines, discover a plot that could plunge the colonies into all-out war. Their only hope may be an alliance with the deadliest ally imaginable.

The characters we're supposed to like are likeable; the shady ones not so much, giving a strength to the writing that has lacked from the last few offerings.
While it may still suffer from the "this is a character from a previous story", it's not as in-you-face about it being a descendent of Ripley and honestly, I hope to see more in the series from this author, though I'm not sure if that will happen - Unlike the early novels where they were all done by the same authors with only some variance in them, a lot of the more recent ones don't seem to get a return gig (with a few notable exceptions). Hopefully Mary gets the chance to return to this universe.
The characters are fleshed out and feel like actual characters. There's a strong female lead who earns her spot as the hero, a cast of Colonial Marines who fit the bill as the "ultimate badasses" until they're not, and a group of supporting characters who you will quickly grow attached to, and then have your heart strings tugged at as they are picked off one by one.
Enemy of my Enemy is easily my favorite of the newest releases of the Alien series over the recent years. I hope that we see more work from Ms. Sangiovanni in this universe in the future. Well done, Mary!!
