Gears of War: Anvil Gate | [Karen Traviss]

Gears of War: Anvil Gate

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.

    "Outstanding"

    If you played the Gears of War series of games listening to this series of books is an absolute no brainer! Unless you are a multiplayer kind of person and didn't play the campaign but I am also assuming those people do not listen to audiobooks.
    For those that did like the game story these books fill in the gaps and backstory in an amazing way that make playing the games again more fun. It also endears the characters to you in a way that would play a role in your emotional state as you play.
    For anyone who never played or doesn't care about the games the books can be read without ever feeling like you missed out or leaving you confused. They simply stand on their own and enhance the games if you do play.

    "Traviss Does it Again"

    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.

    "Another great addition to the series"

    im a big fan of Karen Traviss, from the SW galaxy to the gears books. when i listen to the first one i had no idea that it was a video game. and you wouldnt know it by listen to the books. fast action, creative foes, good characters and the narrator does a great job. the fourth book is due early next year i hope audible is on top of this one becuase i cant wait.

    "Not enough action"

    The stories pace is slow. It taking to long to get anywhere in the plot. I wouldn't recomend the title.
