Publisher's Summary

The Covenant has collapsed after a long, brutal war that saw billions slaughtered on Earth and her colonies. For the first time in decades, however, peace finally seems possible. But though the fighting's stopped, the war is far from over: it's just gone underground.
The UNSC's feared and secretive Office of Naval Intelligence recruits Kilo-Five, a team of ODSTs, a Spartan, and a diabolical AI to accelerate the Sangheili insurrection. Meanwhile, the Arbiter, the defector turned leader of a broken Covenant, struggles to stave off civil war among his divided people.
Across the galaxy, a woman thought to have died on Reach is actually very much alive. Chief scientist Dr. Catherine Halsey broke every law in the book to create the Spartans, and now she's broken some more to save them. Marooned with Chief Mendez and a Spartan team in a Forerunner slipspace bubble hidden in the destroyed planet Onyx, she finds that the shield world has been guarding an ancient secret – a treasure trove of Forerunner technology that will change everything for the UNSC and mankind.
As Kilo-Five joins the hunt for Halsey, humanity’s violent past begins to catch up with all of them as disgruntled colony Venezia has been biding its time to strike at Earth, and its most dangerous terrorist has an old, painful link with both Halsey and Kilo-Five that will test everyone’s loyalty to the limit.

Superb book and a must read for any Halo Fan!

After reading/listening to all the previous titles i really looked forward to Glasslands as it followed on from the brilliant Ghosts of Onyx and it certainly didn't disappoint me. All aspects of the story flowed along at a steady pace and didn't come across as boring at any point. So if you are a Halo Fan then this book is a MUST Read or Listen (I had audio book version) and will not disappoint.

However if you are new to the Halo Series of books then avoid this title and you need to start from Harvest or Fall of Reach, either of those books has a more natural progression into Glasslands as this book will be difficult to understand if you have no prior knowledge of the Halo Series.
