Not sure if this should go here so if not can the mods or admin move it
Anyways time for me to try and produce a book review of Gears of War; Aspho Fields, written by Karen Traviss.
Okay screw it, I've spent 3/4 of an hour trying to write one myself but it was crap so here is the wikipedia entry checked by yours truely for accuracy;
Gears of War: Aspho Fields is a science fiction novel by Karen Traviss, set in the Gears of War universe. The novel is the first in an expected trilogy and is considered canon material. Aspho Fields will mainly focus on the history of the characters and the battle at Aspho Fields, but also takes place during the events between Gears of War and Gears of War 2.
