Publisher's Summary

As kids, the three of them were inseparable; as soldiers, they were torn apart. Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago fought alongside Dom's elder brother Carlos at Aspho Fields in the epic battle that changed the course of the Pendulum Wars. There's a new war to fight now, a war for mankind's very survival. But while the last human stronghold on Sera braces itself for another onslaught from the Locust Horde, ghosts come back to haunt Marcus and Dom.

For Marcus - decorated war hero and convicted traitor - the return of an old comrade threatens to dredge up an agonizing secret he has sworn to keep. As the beleaguered Gears of the Coalition of Ordered Governments take a last stand to save mankind from extermination, the harrowing decisions made at Aspho Fields have to be relived and made again. Marcus and Dom can take anything the Locust Horde throws at them, but will their friendship survive the truth about Carlos Santiago?

    "LOTS OF DEPTH FOR GEARHEADS"

    obviously this book advances the story. but what it does even better is gives much needed background for the characters. finding out about dom's brother and the bond that marcus had/has with the brothers, seeing dom is as loyal as can possibly be.. hoffman, baird and cole! cole is a beast! good stuff all over this book. the only drawback is the reader doesn't capture is as well as he could've. a lil too monotone sometimes, not enough emphasis.......

    History, Shooting, Model Building and my dogs are my loves. Best series I heard here is the Halo anthology.

    "Be a careful listener complex storylines"

    This is the first book in the gears of war story line therefore it is covering a lot of ground. The story telling is not linear it is building background and current state situations for the characters as found in the game. Be Prepared to listen to some sections over again as the author intertwines historical situations. ( expository dialogue )fashion to build the familiar characters for the main story. It's a very good story. I have enjoyed this authors other books I look forward to the next chapter of the gears of war story line.

    "A book that fans can't miss"

    I'm a Gears fan and I can say that now I became a bigger fan. This story is funny, intence and emotional, here you will know why Marcus and Dominic are so close friends. The impersonation of the characters as the way they are in the games is really good and I have to say the voice he uses for Bernie is outstanding, is my favorite. Guys this is a really good book and I can't wait to listen the next one.

    Story
    "Add much depth to the game."

    Karen Traviss does a terrific job writing as does David Colacci narrating this book.

    I played the video game and then found out about the book and got it simply for more background to the story. The only negative point about the book was the bouncing around from present to past, as the listener can become confused.

    I can only hope that Mr. Colacci narrates the second book as well, as he did a great job.
    Can hardly wait for the next book to come out is Audio Book form.

    Story
    "... oh... my..."

    Let me start off by saying that I am one of the super fans of the GoW series and I will not stop loving their work and stories, game or books.

    I was never a reader or dared to pick up a book because I wasn't a person who liked reading... but this... THIS BOOK CHANGED EVERYTHING.

    I loved the audiobook and the book it self and how it related to everything in the series, perfect to the point where I actually went and bought the other books of the series. If anyone likes action sci-fi and loves gears, THIS IS AN AMAZING BOOK TO READ AND TO KEEP READING. I will recommend to anyone 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
