Publisher's Summary

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. Meanwhile, the Arbiter, the defector turned leader of a broken Covenant, struggles to stave off civil war among his divided people.

Across the galaxy, a woman thought to have died on Reach is actually very much alive. Chief scientist Dr. Catherine Halsey broke every law in the book to create the Spartans, and now she's broken some more to save them. Marooned with Chief Mendez and a Spartan team in a Forerunner slipspace bubble hidden in the destroyed planet Onyx, she finds that the shield world has been guarding an ancient secret – a treasure trove of Forerunner technology that will change everything for the UNSC and mankind.

As Kilo-Five joins the hunt for Halsey, humanity’s violent past begins to catch up with all of them as disgruntled colony Venezia has been biding its time to strike at Earth, and its most dangerous terrorist has an old, painful link with both Halsey and Kilo-Five that will test everyone’s loyalty to the limit.

    "Nothing happens this whole book"

    This book just keeps reintroducing the same 10 people the whole book. No action anywhere.

    "Great Story, Inconsistent Narration"

    The story for this book is phenomenal but the narration is very hit or miss. In the Dyson Sphere sections Halsay sounds almost the same as Mendez and they are both far tho similar to the narration voice that it's hard to tell where the narration ends and the dialogue begins. Where Kilo 5 is concerned the opposite holds true. Phillips is given an Irish/Scottish tone, Vasily is given a thick Russian tone, and even Osman has a very slight Arabic accent despite her not even living in Turkey. I honestly stopped listening to the book and just rented it from a library using the voices from Ghosts of Onyx in my head, a much better experience that way.

    "Great Story Performed Flawlessly"

    This Halo Post War Story is Fantastic. The colorful characters with their quirky interactions as they grow to become a cohesive undercover ONI Unit are entertaining and touching. The Reader is hands down one of thee best readers of all in the Halo Books. He really give life to each character and you feel like they are all different people with their own voice. This 3 book trilogy is one of my favorites in the entire series just because of the voice performance given on these audio books.

    "Great continuation of the story!"

    If you enjoyed the Ghosts of Onyx, this story picks up where that one left off.

    "Great Book and start to Kilo-Five"

    I really enjoyed this book as it is fantastic as a standalone read but it also teases you about the adventure that is about to unfold. It is an excellent primer for Halo 4, which I highly recommend. I will listen to this story many times in the future

    "Future will be revealed later"

    A fun read, a different view of the war more secrets to reveal, a key to more stories that will be written.
