Karen Traviss has done an excellent job with the Gears universe so far, and The Slab is no exception. The story is one of the best yet, detailing Marcus' time in the infamous Slab. It's dark, gritty, and has an air of hopelessness to it even though those who've played the videogames know the best result. The book is easy to read and follow.

It’s not like I’ve booked a table at the Segarra. The Segarra had been a pile of rubble for years, not that Dom had ever earned the kind of salary to eat there. It had become a watchword for all the nice civilized things the Locust had destroyed, all those comforts Sera had lost and might never have again.

As the Coalition struggles to defend Sera's surviving humans from the invading 'grubs', Marcus faces a court martial - and a possible death penalty. In the Slab, there are no rules and no mercy.

game series Gears of War-written by New York Times bestselling author Karen Traviss!MARCUS FENIX.

An original novel based on the groundbreaking and award-winning military sci-fi-action video game series Gears of War-written by New York Times bestselling author Karen Traviss!MARCUS FENIX.

Unknown to Hoffman or anyone else, Prescott has been in touch with a secure COG facility called Azura throughout the Locust and Lambent war, and Adam Fenix-not dead as everyone believes-has been held there since the fall of Ephyra, working on a countermeasure.

An original novel based on the groundbreaking and 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. “Adam, you knew this day would come.” It was a familiar voice: silky, imperial, polished, and utterly human. “Hello, Myrrah.” Adam Fenix found himself thinking of the terrible Locust food again. “You got my message, then.” “And how right you were. We do need you. And we shall take you. I hope you’re not planning anything foolish. You have responsibilities, Adam.” It would be a living death. The Locust Queen would never release him, even if he developed a countermeasure. But he didn’t deserve any better. “I also have my service pistol.” “And I can take your son at any time.” He had the measure of her, then, and she had his. “You leave Marcus out of this. It’s a condition.” He opened the desk drawer and took out the handgun, a 9mm officer’s weapon. It made a distinctive clunk on the wooden desktop as he slammed it down. “If anything happens to him, I don’t care what happens to the rest of Sera.”

This author writes some outstanding Gears fiction. From what I understand she is also responsible for the story everyone plays through in the games. This is a great book however about how Marcus got thrown in the slab for disobeying orders to save his father and everything that happened while he was in there including the old face scar. If you're a fan of the franchise, this is a must read and picks up a few years before the introduction of the first game on Xbox 360. Don't kid yourself, every gears fan wants to know what went down in the slab. Enjoy!

I'm not sure what else to say other than this was a Great series! The jumping around within the series was a little distracting but nothing that should deter anyone from reading them. I must say I am a huge fan of the Gears of War series, both game and books but the books really delve into the characters and their life storyline. Karen Traviss is an excellent writer and I really didn't want to see an end to the series. These books really make you feel like Epic Games did a really poor job with their storyline compared to the in depth detail Traviss included in the series. I also find it a plus that she stuck with what little storyline Epic Games did giver her. Not to give anything away but Anyone who really enjoyed the game should definitely give this series a read.

This was a great end to the series! As stated before, it's a little unusual that the series ends with the begining of the game. Ultimately I am sad to know that Traviss is done with the series...although Epic Games did just announce that they were bringing out another Gears of War game that features Damon Baird when he was actually a Lieutenant. If Traviss were to write another book with Baird as the main character and throw in some current Fenix/Stroud relations...Wow, I would definitely buy the book before it comes out. Great job Karen Traviss!

Finally, we find out what happened to Marcus while he was in prison. This story packed more character depth and emotional punch than some of the previous Gears stories, but this look back deserved it. The Hoffman in this storyline has a really good reason for leaving Marcus in jail when it's invaded, but it doesn't seem to track to the beginning of the first game. I think Dom and Anya were a lot more consistent in what they did trying to free Marcus and finally we see a bit more of Adam's feelings, too. The book says it is Traviss' last in the Gearsiverse and I'm disappointed to hear that. Traviss has great story telling skills and I really enjoyed how she expanded the game's universe.

Karen Traviss has done an excellent job with the Gears universe so far, and The Slab is no exception.

The story is one of the best yet, detailing Marcus' time in the infamous Slab. It's dark, gritty, and has an air of hopelessness to it even though those who've played the videogames know the best result.

The book is easy to read and follow. Fans of the videogames be warned, this is more of a character-driven story. There's action scenes (including a nice little nod to the first game at the end,) but most of the book focuses on the characters. I found no problem with this, however, and couldn't put it down until the end.

I would give the book five stars, but what's holding me back is one tiny thing; we are teased answers to two of the big questions left at the end of Gears of War 3, but not given them!!

All in all, a great read. Hoping for a sequel, set after Gears 3! Please Karen!!

I love all of the gears of war universe. the characters have issues and all of the novels and games really show you this deep dark messed up place that these people are trying to deal with and just survive. having the story of marcus fenix and his time in jail before the events of GoW is great and it gives you perspective on why his character is who he is. this is a must have for anyone who is a fan of the sera universe.

Awesome read and great backstory of the characters that make the gears of war series an instant classic. Also, a great look at marcus himself, showing a side of him we rarely get to see in the game and his interactions with great characters of the series. One of my favorite books of the entire series.
