Publisher's Summary

The second novel of the Kilo-Five Trilogy by number-one New York Times best-selling author Karen Traviss - part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series Halo!

It's 2553. Welcome to humanity’s new war: silent, high-stakes, and unseen. This is a life-or-death mission for the Office of Naval Intelligence’s black-ops team, Kilo-Five, which is tasked with preventing the ruthless Sangheili, once the military leaders of the alien alliance known as the Covenant, from regrouping and threatening humankind again. What began as a routine dirty-tricks operation - keeping the Sangheili occupied with their own insurrection - turns into a desperate bid to extract one member of Kilo-Five from the seething heart of a brutal civil war. 

But troubles never come singly for Kilo-Five. Colonial terrorism is once again surfacing on one of the human worlds that survived the war against the Covenant, and the man behind it is much more than just a name to Spartan Naomi-010. 

Meanwhile, the treasure trove of Forerunner technology recovered from the Forerunner shield world of Onyx is being put to work, even as a kidnapped Sangheili plots vengeance on the humans he fears will bring his people to the brink of destruction....

amazing

this is my first time listening through the Kilo-Five Trilogy after reading it twice. it took me a while to get used to the Scottish narrator, but ive come to prefer him over Johnathan Davis and Scott Brick. Thursday War was my favorite book out of the trilogy but the trilogy, as a whole, is so brilliantly written that my brain ends up being fatigued from listening or reading long before i lose interest. there just never seems to be a good stopping point, solely because all three books are constant excitement.
