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.

The plot was easy to follow and kept me on my toes throughout the journey. The narrator knew exactly how to portray each character perfectly and I will gladly listen to this again
The story is based on things that occured in previous books, so catching up with the story took a lot of time. The last chapter did not really have an end. I won't buy anymore from this series.
honestly I never thought I can enjoy the story so much and the setting that is my job probably has a lot to do with that As I am a police officer at a college campus that requires a lot of foot patrols at night so the calm peaceful night and dark skies combined with a very interesting story makes for a good shift thank you very much!
the ghosts of onyx felt like it was to close to the story of halo to do anything new, kilo five steps away from that and does its own thing very well
