award-winning military sci-fi-action video game series Gears
of War—written by #1 New York Times bestselling
author Karen Traviss!
MARCUS FENIX. WAR HERO. LOYAL SON. TRAITOR.
Ten years after Emergence Day, as the Locust Horde advances
on humanity’s last defended area—Ephyra—in a bloody war that
has seen billions die, Marcus Fenix does the unthinkable: he
defies orders and abandons his post during a critical battle
in a bid to rescue his father, weapons scientist Adam Fenix.
But Adam is buried in the rubble during a ferocious assault
on the Fenix mansion, and Ephyra falls to the enemy. Marcus,
grieving for a father everyone believes is dead, is
court-martialed for dereliction of duty and sentenced to
forty years in the Coalition of Ordered Government’s brutal
maximum security prison, known simply as the Slab.
But Adam is very much alive, snatched from the destruction
by the elite Onyx Guard on Chairman Richard Prescott’s
orders. He’s now a long way from home and in a prison of his
own—a COG doomsday bunker on the tropical island of Azura, a
place hidden from the rest of Sera since the Pendulum Wars.
His own guilty secret has been exposed: Adam knew the Locust
existed deep below the surface of Sera long before Emergence
Day, and were being driven from their tunnels by a lethal
parasite known as the Lambent. Now he has to find a way to
destroy the Lambent while the dwindling COG forces fight to
hold back a growing Locust army that’s threatening to
overrun the city.
As Adam struggles to find redemption in his comfortable
island jail, Marcus seeks his own atonement in the squalid,
closed world within the Slab’s granite walls. While Dom
Santiago and Anya Stroud fight to get him released, ready to
make any sacrifice to free him, Marcus gradually finds
unexpected kinship among Sera’s most dangerous criminals—and
a way to carry on his personal war against the Locust.
