    The Covenant has collapsed after a long, brutal war that saw billions slaughtered on Earth and her colonies. For the first time in decades, however, peace finally seems possible. But though the fighting's stopped, the war is far from over: it's just gone underground. The UNSC's feared and secretive Office of Naval Intelligence recruits Kilo-Five, a team of ODSTs, a Spartan, and a diabolical AI to accelerate the Sangheili insurrection.

    Where does Halo: Glasslands rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best books I've listened too. The story is well written for an audiobook setting.


    What other book might you compare Halo: Glasslands to and why?

    Read or listen to the first 4 Halo books: Halo: Fall of Reach through Halo: Ghosts of Onyx. These books build up the story line to where Grasslands takes off.


    What about Euan Morton’s performance did you like?

    Very good storytelling. His voices really bring life to the characters. One of the best audiobook narrations I've heard


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It's way too long for one sitting, but definitely one that kept you wanting to hear more!

    It is the year 2524. Harvest is a peaceful, prosperous farming colony on the very edge of human-controlled space. But we have trespassed on holy ground, strayed into the path of an aggressive alien empire known as the Covenant. What begins as a chance encounter between an alien privateer and a human freighter catapults mankind into a struggle for its very existence.

    Story

    This book is an interesting look at the first human encounter with the Covenant. It's also a look at the Office of Naval Intelligence and how their personnel operate. The series of events that lead up to what is now known of the Covenant War. It's an interesting look at how the war started, and just how little was known of what was going on.

    While the Master Chief defends a besieged Earth, and the myriad factions of the Covenant continue their crusade to eliminate humanity, an ultra-secret cell of the Office of Naval Intelligence, known as Section Three, devises a plan to buy the UNSC vital time. They're going to need hundreds of willing soldiers, though...and one more Spartan to get the job done.

    What made the experience of listening to Halo the most enjoyable?

    I thoroughly enjoy the Halo Universe. This book brings up a chapter of the Spartan program that has gone mostly unmentioned.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 4th book in the Halo series. In the series Contact Harvest and The Cole Protocol come next, but chronologically the Kilo 5 series should be read next. Halo Grasslands ties into Ghosts of Onyx so that should be the next book to read if you love the Halo Universe and want to read more.

    With the Covenant War over, the Office of Naval Intelligence faces old grievances rising again to threaten Earth. The angry, bitter colonies, still with scores to settle from the insurrection put on hold for thirty years, now want justice and so does a man whose life was torn apart by ONI when his daughter was abducted for the SPARTANII program. Black ops squad KiloFive find their loyalties tested beyond breaking point when the father of their Spartan comrade, still searching for the truth about her disappearance, prepares to glass Earth's cities to get an answer.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already recommended this series to several friends. If you love the Halo universe you'll love this continuation. It gives a very interesting extension to Katherine Halsey.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It showed the human confrontation of the Spartans like it hasn't been seen. The side of what could have been if they hadn't been abducted into the Spartan program.


    Have you listened to any of Euan Morton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Euan Morton's portrayal of Kilo 5 in this series is really well done. This being the third book and he has been able to keep consistent character voices all the way through.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are up and downs through the book. Some sad and funny parts.


    Any additional comments?

    I really wish there were more Halo books. I love the Halo universe and I'm super excited where we can be taken from here.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Carter as he is the sole primary character


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first Scott Brick performance. I've now heard all three of his Barsoom books and feel that he does a great job for this type of book. The many different species are all given a specific voice type.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Hard to put down would be the term for the written novel. I listened in about 2-3 hour spurts and was engaged through most of it.


    Any additional comments?

    I picked up this book because of how much I liked the movie. Forget the movie. The book is much better and Scott Brick's performance is very well done

    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.
