Synopsis

Welcome to humanity's new war: silent, high stakes, and unseen. This is a life-or-death mission for ONI's black-ops team, Kilo-Five, which is tasked with preventing the ruthless Elites, once the military leaders of the Covenant, from regrouping and threatening humankind again. What began as a routine dirty-tricks operation?keeping the Elites busy with their own insurrection?turns into a desperate bid to extract one member of Kilo-Five from the seething heart of an alien civil war. But troubles never come singly for Kilo-Five. Colonial terrorism is once again surfacing on one of the worlds that survived the war against the Covenant, and the man behind it is much more than just a name to Spartan-010. Meanwhile, the treasure trove of Forerunner technology recovered from the shield world of Onyx is being put to work while a kidnapped Elite plots vengeance on the humans he fears will bring his people to the brink of destruction.

What a waste
February 16th, 2013
You can tell this book was written by a woman with a serious case of misandry. The people who are in charge are women while the men are subordinates. And any men that may be in charge are incompetent buffoons who care more about politics than anything else. The rest are weak ineffective and lost without women to lead them. To say that the main characters were anti-heroes is putting it mildly. None of them have anything admirable to their characters. For the first time in reading any of the Halo series I found myself rooting for the covenant rather than the humans, at least the covenant characters have some admirable traits. All in all I am sorry I bought this book (even as a cheaper ebook) and I would say it degrades the halo franchise.
