    A deadly serious game of hide-and-seek is on. The CIA's brilliant young analyst, Jack Ryan, thinks he knows the reason for the sudden Red Fleet operation: the Soviets' most valuable ship, the Red October, is attempting to defect to the United States.

    Rick says: "Very rough recording"
    "Very Poor Audio!"
    Overall

    The audio quality of this is very poor. It sounds almost as if it was run through a voice recognition program.

    The "reading" of the book does not do justice to the book itself.

    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.

    Story

    Just when you think that the books can't get anymore interesting, they do. Like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, references in past books are made clear. You learn more and more about the characters and what make them who they are; and how their pasts have shaped their present day. I can hardly wait for the next book to find out what happens.

    David Colacci continues his terrific job as Narrator in the series. The characters quite literally come alive in the reading of the book.

    After a brutal 15-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.

    Terrific Sequel
    Karen Traviss follows up her first book, Gears of War: Aspho Fields, with another great book. Traviss takes you through events that follow after the events of the video game Gears of War 2. Again, taking you into the past of the characters and how those events shaped their present day.

    Colacci again does a great job narrating the book, bringing out the depth and emotion of the characters.
