Book Description

Aug. 31 2010 Gears of War
Continuing the saga of the bestselling game series!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever two-six-R-T-I Sept. 22 2011
Format:Paperback
This book focuses more about Hoffman's involvement and how is it that he's so great. I loved this book, I imagined Anvil Gate a lot bigger than what the game drew it but oh well..

Great great book !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Anvil gate Aug. 8 2011
By W.A.M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
I won't spoil it for anyone reading this review. I enjoyed the book. I started reading the series a while back and have been pleased by the imagery the book can conjure. The author has done the job exceptionally well. If you enjoy the franchise and want to continue to story then get the book. If you'd prefer a pick-up book with no back story then don't. I think that someone could pick it up with minimal knowledge of the game or other books and know what was going on, but wouldn't fully enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars well written, follows the same format as the previous 2 novels Aug. 8 2011
By Stephen M. Lerch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase
Anvil Gate is the follow up to Gears of War: Jacinto's Remnant. It is the third book, of an expected 5, in the Gears of War Universe.

This one picks up right where Jacinto's Remnant left off. The survivors of the sinking of Jacinto continue to struggle with the Stranded and other concerns that have arisen due to the sinking of Jacinto.

Once again Karen Traviss provides a snap shot of the lives of the Gears we've all gotten accustomed to while also digging into the history of the Pendulum Wars and what has formed the two survivors of that bloody battle.

The complaint I leveled at previous Gears novels still stands. You will begin reading during the current time period and then when Karen wants to visit the past, the next chapter or two will be devoted to the past. Then you're handed back into the current time, rinse repeat. It can become slightly disjointed but not really all that difficult to follow. Sometimes you just find yourself wanting to know what is happening, be it in the past or current time and the suspense is taken into a chapter from a different time frame.

Over all the story is really good. Epic did a fantastic job choosing Karen to "own" the Gears story. I just wish she focused on past or present and maybe write a book specific to the past and specific to the present. Of course, some of the past pertains to what's happening in the present, but as this is the third book to be written this way, it just feels like it has become a cliched story telling vehicle.

This book will take you right up to the follow up novel, Gears of War: Coalition's End. Coalition's End will take you right up to the opening of Gears of War 3, which is why I'm going to finish reading (and hopefully review soon), before Gears 3 is released next month.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continuation of the Gears of War Saga Aug. 3 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Overall I really liked this book, I don't think it delved as much into the past of the characters as the other books, which is something I am deeply interested in. The books pace I felt moved along nicely, I don't remember to many spots in the book where I found it a choir to read like other books.
