Summary

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

It has been six years since the end of the Covenant War...and yet on the planet Carrow, a world on the edge of the Joint Occupation Zone, a decisive new battle suddenly erupts. Human colonists and the alien Sangheili have already been living a tension-filled coexistence in this place, with Unified Earth Government envoy Melody Azikiwe attempting to broker a lasting peace between their two species. But as civil war now engulfs the Sangheili settlers, Melody must act on an additional covert assignment courtesy of the Office of Naval Intelligence: find a way to free the SPARTAN-IIs known as Gray Team, held in stasis since the end of the war by a cunning Elite fleetmaster consumed with vengeance. And none can anticipate the ongoing violence leading to the discovery of an even greater, unstoppable threat - one hidden for eons below the surface of the planet....

another great story for halo

I found this an amazing book, I always thought you had to have at least 3 books to get the whole story for halo but this book did it so perfectly I wish to see these characters in a halo game or the tv show when it releases !

excellent universe story

brilliant story, far better than anything recent that 343i can come up with in the games. glad to see grey team back and adding to the cannon in new and innovative ways

Really rather good

Really engaging, all the characters are so well defined and you really get a good sense of the different races and their way. Very well narrated and hope for more!

Good book

Loved it a must for halo fans.
Easy to listen too and not too long that makes you lose interest quickly.

The best narrator a halo book could have, very well written & interesting story overall with a good amount of reference to the original cannon, compliments to the writer.

My first venture into Halo literature.

Definitely a 'page turner' (if it wasn't an Audio book). Strong start, and it keeps the momentum throughout the 15 hours of listening. Even during slower points of the story you are still left on the edge of your seat.

The best halo book since Fall of reach

I have read every single halo book and have been an avid fan since the fall of reach. This is by far the best book since said initial title. It has everything you want in a halo book. Very well written and by far the best narration to date of a halo book. Now if only they would make a game out of this book!

duuude

the book was great, its a whole new crazy thing to add to the halo story. The narrator was a bit bland when it came to voice changes but it didnt matter. My favorite part was the ending, the book was great but the end tied several different books together and it was very well done.

Great book!

Memorable characters, good motivations, great performance; and an excellent story! I got through half the book in one sitting, finished it in the next! I was enthralled! I would highly recommend this as a companion piece to Halo: The Cole protocol!

This is essence of Spartan

This is what Halo is. I am hungry for the next installment. Hurry! Grey team is the last of the originals. The story line was well developed and the characters were exciting well developed. Presentation and performance...second to none. What is the release date of the next book?!

Narration not that great but story is worth it

Narration was flat and with as many characters as this book had a little more distinction would have been appreciated. The story adds to the Halo universe and is a fun read/listen for those interested.

Good take on a new enemy.

Very well written story. I can't wait to see how the rest of the Halo Expanded Universe outs affected because of this book.

Best Halo novel yet and I've read them all

I was surprised at how good this novel was. I have read every Halo novel, some.multiple times over the past decade.

This one was fantastic. honestly would be my pick if they were to ever make a proper film.

I can't recommend it enough.

An ode to Halo fans and new readers alike

One of the best Halo novels out there that even gives Fall of Reach a run for its money. The impeccable character development and return of grey team could not have been done in a better fashion and the pacing the author keeps throughout the novel had me on my toes till the very end. I haven't felt this attached to the characters of a book in a very long time and boy is it a rollercoaster ride this book takes you on, it truly feels like a movie playing in your head. I would 100% recommend this book to halo fans and any newcomers alike, I promise you will not be disappointed!

Excellent entry in the Halo book series.

Very interesting read. Very interesting lore to add to the Halo universe. Definitely worth picking up.
