After a brutal fifteen-year war for survival, the Coalition of Ordered Governments is forced to destroy mankind's last city in a final bid to stop the Locust Horde. As the survivors flee Jacinto, they must contend with the last of the Locust, bent on vengeance, as they struggle to stay alive in an icy wilderness. Marcus Fenix, Dom Santiago, and their fellow Gears fight to get Jacinto's refugees to a safe haven but find themselves in a lawless new world where the enemy is human-and as desperate and dangerous as any grub.

    " this book by karen was extremely well done. the dialogue although profain at times was extremely in detail and well thought out. I also enjoyed to see a change in the idea of the enemy. This book showed that not only had the locust been after delta squad but also a group of savage humans who are strandeds turned raiders. It completely keeps your mind off of the locust for a while untill the explosive ending. supurb. "

    " Good book but I did got tierd for a while of reading the people suffering , after that it change a bit and become a great read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean Paul | 12/11/2013

    " I think the first book was better than this one. It is interesting, however, in the sense that it lets you know how humanity coped with the loss of Jacinto. It sets things up pretty good for the oh so expected third game. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Thomas | 11/2/2013

    " This is the second book in the series, it is as good as the first, not a great deal of alien battles as it goes more into the re-building of society territory, but it is still excellent, due to the authors fantastic characterisation of the main protagonists. A must read series..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jens Andersen | 10/13/2013

    " Cool book, provides nice insight in to the world and what we can await in the third game! :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 9/22/2013

    " So far, so good! xD "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 MMOGC | 9/20/2013

    " 3.5 stars. I enjoyed this book for the same reasons I enjoyed the first Gears of War book -- the character building, background, dialogue, etc. However, I felt the main plot line dragged a little and the story was anti-climatic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Benn Jones | 9/16/2013

    " Not as emotional as the previous book, but still sticking with the story filling you in and making you fell more part of the GoW world. Bringing the characters in the game to have a more clear history and personality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonchi | 8/17/2013

    " Pese a iniciar tanto o incluso mejor que su anterior trabajo en el mundo de Gears of War, el libro pierde demasiado ritmo de la mitad para adelante "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 8/12/2013

    " It's nice to know that Gears is still interesting even without Locust. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Corbett | 6/6/2013

    " This is a great book. Beautifully written and well thought out in the dark and gory but well detailed universe that is Gears of War, I look forward to reading more in the novel series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Timothy Pecoraro | 10/1/2012

    " The book continues in the story of Marcus Fenix and company. What I really love about these books is the way that they flesh out what would normally be a pretty 2D world. I've read just about all of them now; except for the last one that came out. I really like them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Hernandez | 5/5/2012

    " Describes the events after the second game great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ZWiggs | 4/29/2012

    " Continues story of Gears of War 2. Follows the life of the COG after the sink of Jacinto and their struggles "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Barnard | 10/18/2011

    " Love, love, love Gears!!!! Unfortunately found book #2 first....but it's signed by some of the creators...bonus!!!! An amazing read; it gave a lot of depth to characters I loved or knew nothing about. Can't wait to read the rest of them. Almost as much as I can't wait for Gears 4 to come out!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Torry | 8/6/2011

    " Really good book based on the "Greatest Game Ever..." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vaughn | 7/30/2011

    " Found my mind wandering, but am curious to see what happens in the video game. (That's the only reason why I read these). She kinda writes like I did *and shall now change* XD "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Padre | 5/9/2011

    " Refugee relocation, internal conflicts, Stranded and pirates - this stuff expands the universe nicely, but it lacks the epic feel of Aspho and the games. In game terms, this book is like a collection of side-quests: interesting, but not pushing the main storyline forward much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 3/7/2011

    " I loved this book! It gives you an in-depth look at the pshycology of the gears and what they go through. wasn't focused on fighting grubs though, so if that's your favorite part, don't expect it in this book. It was an awsome read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tommy | 7/30/2010

    " As good as Aspho Fields. This book exudes a great sense of camaderie. It's military science-fiction the way it should be. I loved the little self-deprecating jokes directed at the games. Reading this has gotten me pumped up for Gears Of War 3. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Symmetryboss | 6/28/2010

    " What I've learned from this book, is that I probably have an unhealthy addiction to men built like bears swinging chainsaws and exploding heads. "
