Marcus Fenix. War hero. Decorated Gear. Loyal son. Traitor. As the Locust Horde advances into one of humanity's last bastions, Marcus does the unthinkable: he defies Colonel Hoffman's orders and abandons his post in the middle of the battle in a bid to rescue his father, weapons scientist Dr Adam Fenix. 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. Marcus must learn to survive in an institution populated by the most dangerous dregs of society.

Meanwhile, COG scientists continue the race against time to find a weapon to defeat the Locust - but there's another traitor - one of the most trusted men in the COG, who knew the Locust existed long before the creatures erupted from their underground warrens. Worse, there's an even bigger threat emerging: a life-form called the Lambent, which drove the Locust to the surface and that will eventually destroy all life on Sera.

As the Locust infiltrate deeper into COG territory, the Slab is in danger of being overrun. All the prisoners are released . . . except Marcus. The Locust close in while Dom Santiago mounts a last-ditch rescue bid to free the one man who can save humanity.

Book Description:

The fifth tie-in novel to this hugely successful game: high-octane, all-action and telling the story of beleagued humanity, facing a powerful alien species bent on their destruction

From the Back Cover:

MARCUS FENIX. WAR HERO. LOYAL SON. TRAITOR. As the Locust Horde advances into one of humanity's last settlements - Ephyra - Marcus does the unthinkable: he abandons his post in a bid to rescue his father, the weapons scientist Adam Fenix. But Adam is lost during an assault on the Fenix mansion, and Ephyra falls to the enemy. As the Coalition of Ordered Governments struggles to defend Sera's surviving humans from the invading "grubs," Marcus faces a court martial. Deserting his post in wartime means the death penalty. But his sentence is commuted to forty years in the COG's most notorious prison - known as the Slab - where a prisoner's life expectancy is less than two years.
In the Slab, there are no rules and no mercy. As Marcus begins this nightmarish day-to-day existence, it will finally be revealed why his sentence was commuted and who intervened to save his life. While his friends and fellow Gears Dom Santiago and Anya Stroud fight to get him released, Marcus must learn to survive in an institution populated by Sera's most dangerous criminals.
