Blockbuster video game franchise Gears of War has been a household name among gamers, with over 12 million copies sold to date. At the demand of fans asking to know more about the story, Gears of War burst onto the book scene in 2008 with Aspho Fields and then with Jacinto's Remnant following one year later, both penned by #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Traviss and both instant bestsellers. Now in the third book of the series, GEARS OF WAR: ANVIL GATE (Del Rey Trade Paperback, on sale August 31, 2010, $16.00), the human race struggles to move on after the tragic events on Jacinto.
With the Locust Horde seemingly destroyed, Jacinto's survivors have begun to rebuild human society on their island stronghold. Raiding pirate gangs take a toll — but it's nothing that Marcus Fenix and the Gears can't handle. Then the terrifying life-forms they thought they'd left behind - the Lambent, creatures even the Locust feared - begin to advance across the planet. Gears and gangs must fight side by side to stop their deadliest enemy yet, falling back on the savage tactics of another bloody siege: Anvil Gate.
"Anvil Gate is part of the fast-moving storyline between the second and third Gears games, so it's essential reading for any fan who wants to fully understand the events of Gears of War 3 - the final game of the trilogy, also written by Karen," said Epic GamesExecutive Producer Rod Fergusson.
