Summary

An original full-length novel set in the Halo universe and based on the New York Times best-selling video game series! 

Just hours following their climactic battle on the Forerunner planet Genesis, the Spartans of Blue Team and Fireteam Osiris find themselves running for their lives from the malevolent machinations of the now-renegade artificial intelligence Cortana. But even as they attempt to stay one step ahead, trouble seems to find Spartan Edward Buck no matter where he turns. 

A secret mission enacted by the Office of Naval Intelligence could possibly help turn the tide and has Buck reluctantly agreeing to reform his old team, Alpha-Nine. Because if the band is really getting back together for this one, that means everybody - including the Spartan Buck never wants to see again, the one who committed the ultimate betrayal of trust....

A great addition to the ODST story

after going over new blood a continuation of halo 3 ODST i felt a series of books about the squad were a needed addition to halos canon.

this book continues that perfectly and I am surprised with how well it allowed me to change prospective on characters.

if you finished halo 5 and need to know more
this is where to start (granted after you read new blood)

Edward. Malcolm. Buck.

There are no characters that are a better choice to narrate a story than Buck. His narrative voice is human and relatable. That combined with a story that compensates for Halo 5s lack of one, makes an amazing book. Brick's narration fits perfectly, too.

Loved it 😁

It's great to have more of the Halo story to fill in and carry on in the background of the main games 😁
