Sometimes it can be long winded and sure knows how to drag at times however it certainly picks up in terms of action when compared to the preceding book. In the first book nothing that happened seemed to have any large implications until the end. This book however involves matters that will actually grasp your interest, as the events that transpire are on a far larger scale without losing track of the narrative. Both this book and it's predecessor cannot even dream of competing with the masterpiece "Ghosts of Onyx" which is starting book but this is a great addition to the Halo universe. However there are some problems as many characters from Glasslands simply vanish which is strange after the same writer just spent a whole book developing them. I was also disappointed as to the resolution of what happens to Catherine Halsey who is, perhaps the most intricate and complex character within the series she represents the conflict between doing what must be done and what is right. To have her simply squished out with very little mention was a major loss to the book, the fact that all the characters seemed to bear a mutual hatred towards her was somewhat surprising.
Instead all the one dimensional characters remain, but the writer attempts to add more depth to these characters and to a degree succeeds although certain drastic changes in characters personalities is still odd, Phillips the prime example.
Despite this though the book somehow managed to keep my attention with ease and I was not left disappointed at the end.

I have read every Halo novel and must say that this novel was one of the better ones (perhaps because it is the one that is fresh in my memory). The parallel stories are nice additions to the universe and are a great introduction to the story of Halo 4 and Spartan Ops. One story is about the Sangheili and their civil war while another story follows a UNSC team that is working 'under cover'. The Sangheili story gives you more info about Humanity's enemy and the UNSC story tells you about the plan that feeds the civil war on Sanghelios. There are also many references to the Forerunners which I like very much.

It's simple: if you like the Halo Universe and you want to fill in the dark pieces you should read it.

Halo is like a drug to him, he's constantly talking about it so I figured i'd buy him another book (like I do whenever theres a new one) in order to stop him pestering me.
Funnily enough it work and I actually started to get bored of the silence under our roof!
He loved it and had his head firmly between the pages until he finished it.
Not that I mind too much as I managed to watch the end of my programs without someone chatting away in my ears!

Its better than Glasslands but it still has issues. The highlight of the book was Phillips's story, but Kilo-Fives mission is really annoying especially near the end. I liked it better than Glasslands but for people that know Halo lore well will notice Travis's mistakes; she made an attempt to repair certain characters that she totally destroyed in the first book, but it really isn't that apparent.

Book arrived no probs, started getting into it and must say....I dont know what everyone else is on about!

It has the same level of "personal warfare" as in Glasslands and the character development is even better.

Get Glasslands or even better, get Ghosts of onyx....then continue!

The last book. Halo:Glasslands wasn't the best book in the Halo book series but I liked it more than most. However this one is even better. I wont go into details but the plot, is very good and has a bit of Foreshadowing to the events of Halo 4.
