Format: Hardcover
Glasslands is kind of two Halo sequels in one- in a way it is a sequel to Halo 3, in that it is the first "post-war" story from the universe, though technically it largely takes place between the final level of the game and the ending sequence (when the memorial to the fallen soldiers of the covenant war is dedicated- an event that also happens in the book, towards the end). Secondly it is a true (and much more direct) sequel to "Ghosts of Onyx", Eric Nylund's most recent Halo novel. Karen Traviss (who wrote Gears of War 3) takes the reigns from Nylund and runs with them though, balancing three storylines of complex moral ambiguity and intrigue. The moral implications of Dr. Halsey's actions are explored in great detail, and while I had previously been a strong Halsey supporter (her journal that came with the Reach legendary edition is what got me reading Halo fiction in the first place), several characters have strong arguments for the "Halsey is a Monster" camp. So we follow Halsey and the group of Spartan IIs and IIIs trapped in the Onyx Dyson sphere (the Forerunner "shield" world that they escape to in "Ghosts of Onyx)" as well as a group of ONI spooks and a few Sangheili (elites) rogues who are plotting a mutiny against the Arbiter. If nothing else, Glasslands proves that the end of the covenant war is by no means the end of interesting stories to be told in the Halo universe. In fact, it has convinced me that now that the cut and dry "good humans vs. army of evil mutants" conflict is resolved, we can now get into the meaty aftermath that has the potential to tell much more complex stories.Read more ›

Beginning of an interesting trilogy that helps inform the backstory between the older games and Halo 4. Wondering how Halsey ended up cuffed in Spartan Ops in Halo 4?- it's all in here.

Format: Paperback
I am an avid reader of science fiction and without any exaggeration, this book and its associated series, are some of the best sci-fi books I have ever read. The characters and locations come alive and draw you in like few other books. Your interest in the Halo series should not decide if you read this or not; the books are a part of the Halo timeline, but can still be enjoyed by anyone who likes a good book.

Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
In the ninth book in this series we have 3 interwoven stories.

In the first story we find Doctor Halsey, creator of the Spartan (augmented human soldiers) program and some of her Spartans and some Spartan II's (newer version) hiding from the end of the world. They have found themselves inside a large Dyson Sphere. The sphere has a breathable atmosphere, buildings which are all abandoned, and flora and fauna unlike anything seen on Earth.

While investigating their surroundings they are reminded that they only have provisions for 15 days and beyond that time they are going to have to find something to drink and eat. When they discover a tall tower, all in black, the mysteries of the Dyson Sphere just compounds. Who built the sphere ? where are they now ? why isn't there any furniture in any of the buildings ? and particularly why is everything so clean, not a spec of dust anywhere, ?

When one of the Spartans disappears in the black tower their fellow Spartans and Doctor Halsey work to discover the secrets of the world they have found themselves in.

In the second story; with the defeat of the Covenant (our mortal enemy) the war appears over however there are just too many radical factions still out there. In particular the warriors used in the battle by the Convenant called the Sangheili are definitely a potential future hazard.

So Admiral Parangosky has hired Captain Osman to create tension with the various Sengheili clans to incite an internal conflict. The classic thinking being that if the Sangheili are involved in a civil war they are less likely to get organized and attack mankind. So outfitted with a stealth ship, and a top notch crew, Osman goes out to Sangheili to see what trouble she can stir up.
