Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-seller - part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series Halo!

The 26th century. Once considered clandestine, the Spartan-II program has now gone public. Tales of armored supersoldiers fending off thousands of Covenant attacks have become the stuff of legend. 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. It will need hundreds of willing soldiers, though - and one more Spartan - to get the job done.

The planet Onyx is virtually abandoned and the perfect place to set this new plan in motion. But when the Master Chief destroys Halo, something is triggered deep within Onyx: Ancient Forerunner technology stirs, and fleets of UNSC and Covenant vessels race to claim it and change the course of the Human-Covenant War. But this reawakened and ancient force may have plans of its own....

A MUST READ FOR HALO FANS

LOVED THIS BOOK! After reading the first 3 Halo books this one has by far been my favourite. The emotions this book made me feel were real. Kurt is my favourite of the Spartans, even above John.

Amazing Story

Personally, I am a big fan of the HALO series, games, novelizations, etc. Mr. Davis reads this with amazingly. The voicing of different species was handled well, and I was able to tell when the perspective had switched, from human to alien, based solely on the voice acting.

During Halo 2

From what this book is informing people it takes place during Halo 2 but showing a more forerunner security to the Halo rings being activated.

Good entry in the Halo series

Overall the book was good. I still struggle with some of the terminology but thats really a nit pick. Characters are interesting but some of the timelines dont match the games.

A classic for any Halo fan

Of the original trilogy of Eric Nylund Halo novels this one is my favorite. I liked the performance of this one better then first strike and fall of reach. definitely worth a listen.
