TL DR Review35 stars but I m feeling generous so the better part of 35 stars Much better than I was expecting Feelings everywhere Just let me get myself together I shouldn t be feeling like this about a GoW book LOLMore reviews The BiblioSanctumLong ReviewWhat I love about Gears of War is that it s teeming with tension As much as I love Mass Effect nothing ever feels really urgent in those game despite there being an intergalactic war against an almost unstoppable force going on Gears of Wars fills that part of me that loves the almost nonstop action froth with pressure So much is thrown at you in this game and it never feels like you really get a breather I recently replayed these games co op with my cousin and gaming partner We made a mad dash through all three games and I can remember there being moments when we had to take a break as the intensity intensified You re always moving always fighting against this opponent that seems countless in number while humanity dwindles to fewer and fewer people each day This game is dirty gritty painful There s nothing romanticized at all about this military epicUnfortunately that means the in game lore is really just a uick series of cut scenes and random ambient conversation that give you a vague sense of things There s not much to work off of in terms of character and story even though it s easy to get attached to the characters and their struggles and some personal things you do know about the characters beg for exploration This book allows players to explore Fenix s world both before Emergence Day and after filling in blanks about the story prior to the beginning of the first game while bridging the gap between Gears of Wars and Gears of War 2This book mainly follows Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago It chronicles their beginnings as childhood friends and eventually as soldiers through one of their most important battles Aspho Fields This book also follows them in their modern day journeys through a ravished Sera where every day is a battle against the Locust horde Marcus is fresh out of prison after serving four years due largely because of the continuing threat of the Locust He immediately gets back into the actionMarcus grew up in an affluent household the only child of two scientifically brilliant but distant parents Dominic had a tight knit family consisting of his parents and his older brother Carlos Carlos was the first person to meet Marcus being they were the same age and in the same class Marcus started hanging out with the Santiago brothers becoming an honorary member of their family cementing a lifelong bond that no one could breakYou can glean from the games that Marcus is not an emotional person This book solidifies that by showing his privileged but joyless well joyless when he wasn t with the Santiagos childhood and where he learned this behavior The Santiago family brought out emotion in him but he was still reserved even as a child He locks down even of his emotions after the death of CarlosThe Santiago brothers on the other hand grew up in a warm household and it shows in their personalities This books explores a household that s full of love emotion dedication and earnestness among other things and these things are shared with Marcus Marcus doesn t become some open expressive guy due to the Santiagos but you can tell that he learned things about family and camaraderie that touch him on a deeper level even if he doesn t show it through his emotionsYou can get a pretty good sense of the kind of people these characters are in the game but this book shows exactly why they re the way they are This exploration of their lives and character made me wish that I could ve given this a higher rating than I did but there were a few issues that I had with it As a gamer who loves gaming lore I really enjoyed the meat this story added but as a reviewer I have to think about other things aside from how much I love DominicFor people who are reading this book and haven t played the games this will be sorely lacking in some respects in regards to detail The book assumes that readers already know what things such as a Boomer or a Grub look like and gives very little to go on as far as description I only really saw a problem with her describing the Locust Horde Well I take that back She was a vague with people as well You might get some identifying details like knowing Baird is blonde or Marcus has blue eyes or Taliso has tribal tattoos on his scalp but mostly if you re not familiar with the games you re left to your own imagination or Googling these peopleThe author seems to assume that all her readers are people who at the very least know of the games which is a fair assumption and I m sure a large portion of her readers are familiar with the series Still a little description would ve been nice just to see how she d describe some of these things with words even if I can already picture them in my head Also there are some people who like to read about video games even if they don t actually play them and some people just happen to pick these books up randomly without being aware they re based on games However in other respects her attention to detail is masterful especially when describing firefightsI think the blurb for this book asking if Marcus and Dom s friendship will survive the truth behind Carlos death was a bit overdramatic as well I was expecting something earth shattering to surround the circumstances of Carlos death However that situation is very anticlimactic in terms of what I was expecting versus what the book eventually revealed When it was all said and done I felt deflated thinking Really This is the friendship breaking secret I mean true you never know how people will react to certain news but fiction needs to make sense where reality doesn t And I just couldn t see these revelations being the make or break of their friendshipIn fact I don t think that was limited to just Carlos role at Aspho Fields It seemed like Traviss tried too hard to make things that feel insignificant in the grand scheme seem important I feel like much of the tension that she tried to create between Dom and Marcus regarding Aspho Fields and even Marcus imprisonment was a bit grasping These men have too much history together and too much brotherly love for one another for me to believe that the simple problems presented in this book could actually tear them apart These things didn t challenge their solid friendship and any reader could probably understand from the history of their friendship presented here that these fears are really a nonissueThe narration was just okay I don t think that David Colacci was the best choice for this book His voice had a way of making things sound shallow especially when he tried to voice characters like Cole I absolutely could not stand the way he voiced Cole or the South Islanders I had the hardest time not laughing during Cole s dialogue while listening to this I liked how he voiced the Pesanga though He did women okay too In fact that s when the narration felt most natural while he was speaking as a woman It just felt like he should be narrating something very different not a military science fiction novel set in such a depressing worldI think my mistake was listening to this instead of just reading it so I don t know if I can really fault the narrator I already have a collection of voices in my head for each character because I m familiar with the media it stems from and of course the narrator can t sound exactly like the characters do in the game I guess I should cut the narrator a little slack with that in mind However I may just read the subseuent books instead of listening to them I think that would allow for a better overall reading experience for meI really loved that this book explored Marcus and Dom s lives and the events that shaped them into the soldiers and people they are Don t take that to mean that this story is in any means slow Much of this book is as intense as the games following the characters through tense situations and battles The tone and pacing of this book fits very well with its game counterpart without sacrificing the story You learn about the characters but you also get a good taste of the action they ve had to live through for most of their lives Even in those moments that seem like nothing but nonstop action you learn so much about these characters
