Product Details


“Highly recommended for readers of military science fiction and the Gears of War universe.  A surprisingly different but fascinating look at the Gears characters” –

“While the chainsaws, machismo and bro-dudeness of the franchise takecentre stage there’s still an interesting world and lore behind it all, and a cast of likeable people. Novels are a perfect opportunity to explore that world… Ephyra Rising is a solid read.” - Wolf’s Gaming Blog

“Fans of Gears of War who, like myself, love the characters and the world and want to see more of it and learn about the gaps between the games are definitely going to enjoy this book… As much a character piece as an action story, this was an absolute delight from start to finish.”
Trans-Scribe review


“Gears of War 3 represents state-of-the-art design and gameplay where you become the king badass among a gory world of bad-asses.”

“A masterpiece of exciting gameplay and emotional storytelling that stands head and shoulders above its predecessors. Even if you don’t remember where you were on Emergence Day, this is one adventure you won’t soon forget.”

“This isn’t a game you’ll be bored with in a month, and it will last many fans years…”

“Gears of War 3 is awesome. The campaign is epic, with action sequences that are more intense, weapons that are more powerful, enemies that are more formidable and heroes that are more relatable than ever before.”
Games Radar


“Gears 5 is one of the most visually stunning games ever crafted.”
Sam Bryford, The Verge

“The Coalition has simply knocked it out of the park with Gears 5.”
Elton Jones, Heavy

“Amazing. No matter which mode you approach it from, Gears 5 is an incredibly fun and polished game.”
Ryan McCaffrey, IGN 

“Opening the door to more creative and meaningful artistic direction helps titles restore energy to games. Gears 5 feels like one of the most fast-paced, exciting titles in the series”


“Mike Stackpole… can draw readily on considerable experience. When he wants to be tough, or whimsical, or demented, it is not the chore it might be for many another. He has it all there, ready.”
Roger Zelazny, author of the Chronicles of Amber

“I think that Michael A. Stackpole is incapable of writing a book that isn’t imaginative, intelligent and sympathetic”
Stephen R. Donaldson, author of the Thomas Covenant series


“A compelling and engaging escape.
Publishers Weekly

“A powerful epic fantasy that is wholly grounded in the gritty realism of battlefields and sacrifices.” 
Romantic Times
