Publisher's Summary

Based on the blockbuster Xbox game, this is the stunning story of the men and women who stood between a planet and total destruction - and now have to face the consequences of their actions.

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---and as desperate and dangerous as any grub.

Terrific Sequel

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.

Pronounciation

Always pronouncing Jacinto wrong, in multiple books even. Can’t be that hard to do a little research before reading a book.

Always good, buuuut....

Okay, I love the sound of David Colacci’s voice. I think I have like 9 or 10 audios that he does, however, there are a few times as I’m listening they I feel like he either sped-read through or just wasn’t paying attention to how words sound in a sentence. He pronounced “short-lived” or “long-lived” with the long “i” sound as if trying to say “life”. The word “lived” isn’t even pronounced that way on its own in any given circumstance. Grammar-Nazi attitude aside, it is also evident that no one who worked on the game was spoken to before the Audio books were recorded as certain city names were not pronounced they way they are in the games. Specifically Jacinto and Gorasnaya. Jacinto as Hah-seen-tow didn’t bother me really (it’s Jah-sin-tow), but Gorasnaya as gor-ahs-nye-ah was pretty bad. It is a Russian influenced name and actually pronounce goraz-neeah. That’s all. The reading other wise was flipping awesome, and I need more David Colacci readings in my life.

Interesting and full of action

Karen Travis is an amazing author. the only problem is the book jumps around in the timeline a lot through various stories and flashbacks that fill holes that coincide with the videogame also connecting stories from other books of the same nature. Its a fun read but I did have to look up the Gears of war timeline to understand what was going on at times but it all fell into place. This was a very fun and exciting book to read.

Good story, "meh" narration.

If you can get last the dull narration, you're in for a good Gears plot.
