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....

I love this book of all the Halo books

if you didn't already know this sets the stage for a trilogy which is also very good. Kilo-five series by Karen Travis. that is also a favorite.

Good but not great, can be pretty slow

I liked the book, but it felt pretty slow. I wanted it to be a bit better with the pacing. Sometimes the book ground to a halt, and other times it was fine. Davis isn't a great narrator for halo, since he made multiple mistakes in pronunciations. not a huge deal, but as a superfan of Halo, it was noticeable and annoying. I would recommend going for one of the Anthology books instead, or one of the other main cannon books. Personally, I prefer the Anthologies, as the narrators in most of the Halo books I have read tend to lean towards less than spectacular and take away from the story.

I'll do a reading.

I love the story, but the voice actor pronounced some words wrong and even said UNSC as USNC, which is also wrong. I'm a long time fan of the Halo franchise, so get in contact with me the next time you need someone to do a reading. I'll give you the performance of a lifetime.
