Overview

Welcome to humanity’s new war: silent, high stakes, and unseen. This is a life-or-death mission for ONI’s black-ops team, Kilo-Five, which is tasked with preventing the ruthless Elites, once the military leaders of the Covenant, from regrouping and threatening humankind again. What began as a routine dirty-tricks operation―keeping the Elites busy with their own insurrection―turns into a desperate bid to extract one member of Kilo-Five from the seething heart of an alien civil war. But troubles never come singly for Kilo-Five. Colonial terrorism is once again surfacing on one of the worlds that survived the war against the Covenant, and the man behind it is much more than just a name to Spartan-010. Meanwhile, the treasure trove of Forerunner technology recovered from the shield world of Onyx is being put to work while a kidnapped Elite plots vengeance on the humans he fears will bring his people to the brink of destruction.

Continuing where the story left off in Glasslands, this book provides further backstory in the run up to Halo 4. As the story progressed, I really began to feel an attachment to the ONI crew, and enjoyed their individual views and personality quirks. Any Halo fan should read both this novel and the previous; you certainly won't be wasting your time.

At first I wasn't sure if I would like it. I am not a gamer but my friend saiI should get it so I did. Now I have Halo 4 after reading it.

After I finished Glasslands I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. All the complaints about canon errors are unwarranted and totally explainable. Any true fan of Halo or science fiction in general will enjoy this book. If there is anything negative I would say about it is sometimes Karen got carried away with the word "hindge head". She sometimes uses it 5 or 6 time on a single page! Buy this book and do yourself a favor.
