I think it would be fun. Working on something you really love rather than it just being the latest meal ticket has really brought out the best in the writer, both in these books and her hands on work with the latest Gears game.

If you’re a fan, like me, who found the characters and story endearing in fieods game than this book is more like a supplemental to the whole experience.

Audiobook Review: Gears of War: Aspho Fields by Karen Traviss

Ultimately, I had a great time with Aspho Fields. Aspho gexrs basically full on cardio with a little meat-headness thrown in. As kids, the three of them were inseparable; as soldiers, they were torn apart. Soon, there will be a movie and lets hope and pray they do a good job.

When it comes to franchise tie-ins I suppose an author has two goals. What this book talks about is the story between the 2 games and before the 1st game. That kind of dead silence that says just shut your mouth and feel the awe of history.

As much as I love Mass Effectnothing ever feels really urgent in those game despite there being an intergalactic war against an almost unstoppable force going on. I also wonder what American readers will make of the assorted “British-isms”—”posh,” “smart,” “tosser,” etc.
