Overview

Gears of War: Jacinto's Remnant by Karen Traviss

Based on the blockbuster Xbox game, this is the stunning story of the men and women who stood between a planet and total destruction–and now have to face the consequences of their actions.

After a brutal fifteen-year war for survival, the Coalition of Ordered Governments is forced to destroy mankind’s last city in a final bid to stop the Locust Horde. As the survivors flee Jacinto, they must contend with the last of the Locust, bent on vengeance, as they struggle to stay alive in an icy wilderness. Marcus Fenix, Dom Santiago, and their fellow Gears fight to get Jacinto’s refugees to a safe haven, but find themselves in a lawless new world where the enemy is human–and as desperate and dangerous as any grub.

I will survive! I will not die,Ill wait here for you! I feel alive...when your beside me! I WILL NOT DIE,ill wait here for you. In my time of dying.On the bed I lay,losing everything! Watching my life...passing me by! Was it all too tough? Was it not enough? Wake me up! Im living a nightmare. I will not die. (I will not die) I will survive! I will not die,ill wait here for you! I feel alive...when your beside me! I WILL NOT DIE,ill wait here for you. In my time of dying. (Instrumental)......end of instrumental. I will not die,illwait here for you! I feel alive..when your beside me! I WILL NOT DIE,ill wait here for you. IN MY TIME OF DYING!!!!!!!!!!!! Hey,guys. The reason i am writing this is i have 3 days to stay alive. I am only 10 and i learned how to play gears of war when i was 6. I never got the chance to play gears of war again. It was my favourite videogame. I hope you liked it. To find the real song look up TIME OF DYING by THREE DAYS GRACE. Its way better to listen to than to read it!

Great book. If you like the Gears of War video games then this is a great book for you. But i recommend that you read Gears of War: Aspho Fields first.

I read this book immediatly after reading Karen's first Gears book " Aspho Fields" . Jacinto's Reminent does not fail to keep you on the edge of your seat, even though there is less action than "Aspho Fields". Karen lets you explore even more into all our favorite gears heads and feelings. I did like that she focused a little more on Hoffmen's, Prescott's, and Adam Fenix's thoughts and burdens with the difficult choice at hand. I love the Gears of War universe and its characters. Karen Traviss has done a marvelous job in expanding the Gears universe. True Gears fans will not be disapointed wih Jacintos Remnant. On my way to read the next installment "Anvil Gate".
