Publisher Description

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

Molly Patel was only seven-years-old when the alien alliance known as the Covenant destroyed her homeworld and killed her family. As one of the few to escape the glassing of Paris IV, and despite the United Nations Space Command winning the war on behalf of humanity, Molly never forgot how much she had lost.

Nine years later, when her adoptive parents—research scientists specializing in ancient Forerunner technology—are called to the mysterious and wondrous place known as Onyx, Molly vehemently objects. It’s not so much that Molly’s concerned about relocating to inside a spherical construct the diameter of an entire solar system, but the fact that she also has to live alongside members of the same alien species that murdered her family. And when the Servants of the Abiding Truth—a violent ex-Covenant sect under the guidance of the notorious Pale Blade—somehow makes its way inside this supposedly impregnable sphere, Molly is now forced to consider if she and her new parents have made a terrible and fatal mistake in coming here....

TheWizardOfOzbourne ,

Good plot, but some characters written poorly

The premise was cool. A civilian coming of age after the war and figuring out who she is amongst the chaos of the Halo universe. The main character, Molly, was interesting, but poorly written for most of the book and any established characters from previous lore acted out of character around pretty much throughout the book. The other main character, Dural, was very well done and I enjoyed his perspective. The world building is extensive, but awesome, especially told from multiple points of view. Decent book over all, just some pot holes ruined an otherwise enjoyable journey.

10/10

Great story with both lovable friendlies and a lovable villain. Great twists and a bit of story teasing! Matt knows what he’s doing!!

9/10

Very interesting to see how the events of Halo 5 and the activation of the Guardians happened in a different albeit familiar part of the galaxy. Plus, maybe some tips and tricks as to how they can be defeated.
