Publisher's Summary

Wars end. But hatred, guilt, and devotion can endure beyond the grave.
With the Covenant War over, the Office of Naval Intelligence faces old grievances rising again to threaten Earth. The angry, bitter colonies, still with scores to settle from the insurrection put on hold for thirty years, now want justice and so does a man whose life was torn apart by ONI when his daughter was abducted for the SPARTANII program. Black ops squad KiloFive find their loyalties tested beyond breaking point when the father of their Spartan comrade, still searching for the truth about her disappearance, prepares to glass Earth's cities to get an answer. How far will KiloFive go to stop him? And will he be able to live with the truth when he finds it? The painful answer lies with a man long dead, and a conscience that still survives in the most unlikely, undiscovered place.

one of the most interesting premises in the series

What made the experience of listening to Halo: Mortal Dictata the most enjoyable?

The premise and main story is very interesting as you truly wish for this father and daughter to reunite and there are multiple other parties involved that complicate the stor and make it more complex than the other novels.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

omething about the voice actor made it a bit difficult to listen to, mainly the way he tried to speak as the famela characters and how weak it sounded, even during more intense action scenes.

Any additional comments?

the ending is weak and there isnt enough action, mainly longy, deep philosophical conversations about a complex situation which is approached from a biased angle, they could've done more with such a unique premise but it was still godd.
