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. They're going to 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 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 want more!
i thought this audio book was absolutely amazing, the story was not only one of the best stories i have listened to in a long time but it was also very well narrated. Please sort out more halo stories or anything along the same lines!

Please sir... can I have some more?
The pace and imagery of this novel is spot on. I admit to being a Halo fan, but was completely surprised by the quality and my enjoyment of this audiobook. Also the science fiction extends from our own reality of technology and human motivations in such an intelligent way it makes it all so tangible. The narration is also excellent.

Engaging and fun. A good light listen
Where does Halo rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I've only listened to Halo books so far, so #1! I've listened to radio plays and the like before, and this ranks up there. I've been warned to stay with the unabridged versions like this, though.
What other book might you compare Halo to and why?
Starship Troopers and The Mote in God's Eye were both good as well. There are a number of decent parallels that were drawn from those two for the Halo stories. They're older works, but still good--I preferred Starship Troopers. Just don't confuse it with the movie.
Which character – as performed by Jonathan Davis – was your favorite?
I enjoyed them all, except for Dr. Halsey. The way he performed her character just seemed too cold... very calculating and unlikable.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Sometimes for a Spartan MIA really means MIA....
Any additional comments?
Thank goodness they finally got someone that knows how to pronounce "Mjolnir." If I had to hear another audio book where the reader pronunced "Mjolnir" as "Muh-jol-neer" I don't know what I would have done. And what's with previous readers saying "USNC" instead of "UNSC" and "Fujikawa-Shaw" instead of "Shaw-Fujikawa?" Nit picky, I know, but....

Awesome story and ties remakes sly with the halo games closes a lot of open thoughts regarding the Spartans and many of their abilities. Wonder what's going to happen next, can't wait to listen to the next book and maybe finish the series in time for halo5 and its upcoming stories and Gina adventures.
