With the Locust Horde apparently destroyed, Jacinto's survivors have begun to rebuild human society on the Locusts' stronghold. Raiding pirate gangs take a toll-but it's nothing that Marcus Fenix and the Gears can't handle. Then the nightmare that they thought they'd left behind begins to stalk them again. Something far worse, something even the Locust dreaded, has emerged to spread across the planet, and not even this remote island haven is beyond its reach. Gears and Stranded must fight side by side to survive their deadliest enemy yet, falling back on the savage tactics of another bloody siege-Anvil Gate. Download and start listening now!

    " Continues the story of Gears of War 2 even further, while also telling the story of Anvil Gate through flashbacks. "

    " great book. This book will give you a lot of back story on the main characters in the book/games. The books are still good without playing the games. You may miss out on some of the story but not enough to be confused. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gearsofwarchick31 | 10/17/2013

    " This book was great! The previous title by Traviss was interesting but was kinda boring at times whereas this book was action packed the whole time! This book was a major plot revealer and it leaves you craving more Gears of War! I would recommend this book series to ANYONE who likes reading. "

    " This was my favorite book out of the series. It does not take the time to go deep into the characters but rather it just goes right into the plot. Very good Video Game sci-fi book. "
