Publisher's Summary

When the Locust Horde burst from the ground 15 years ago to slaughter the human population of Sera, mankind began a desperate war against extinction. Now, after a decade and a half of bloody fighting, and with billions dead, the survivors - the Gears of the Coalition of Ordered Governments, along with a small band of civilians - have been forced to destroy their own cities and sacrifice their entire civilization to halt the Locust advance. The last-ditch measures have succeeded, but at an enormous cost: the survivors have been reduced to a handful of refugees. Escaping to a haven on the remote island of Vectes, they begin the heartbreaking task of rebuilding their devastated world.

For a while, there’s hope... making peace with old enemies, and once again planning for the future. But the short respite is shattered when Vectes comes under siege from an even deadlier force than the Locust: the Lambent, a hideous and constantly mutating life-form that destroys everything in its path. As the Lambent’s relentless assault spreads from the mainland to the island, the refugees finally understand what drove the Locust from their underground warrens and sparked the global war.

While Marcus Fenix and the Gears struggle to hold back the invasion, the Coalition faces a stark choice - fight this new enemy to the last human, or flee to the wastelands to take their chances and live like the human pariahs known as the Stranded... even as Coalition Chairman Richard Prescott still guards one last, terrible secret about the Locust, the Lambent, and the future of mankind.

Listen to more in the Gears of War series.

    "These books are great!"

    If your a fan of the series and games you'll like this. The books really flesh out the characters and get a much better sense of who they are as compared to the games. The whole series of books takes place before or in between the games. The only thing that frustrates me about these books is that they seem to raise more questions rather than answer them. Hopefully Gears of War 3 will offer a whole lot of answers and closure.

    "Absolutely Fantastic"

    A brilliant way to begin the 3rd game of the series. There was so much back story and information in this book (and the other titles) that I found myself replaying the games from the beginning. Karen Traviss is an excellent writer and a fantastic story teller.
    David Colacci is such a wonderful narrator that I actually prefer his interpretation of certain characters, over their voice actors in game.

    "Perfect"

    The way she writes these characters is as if she was the one who first created them. Love these books. I'm currently playing the games in order alongside them. Brings everything together.

    "Gears 👍"

    Great story line, definitely fills in the story gaps. Characters portrayed very well. Gives you a beginning to end of the franchise.
