Halo: The Thursday War, the riveting new space thriller sequel to Karen Traviss' New York Times bestseller Halo: Glasslands, is based on the enormously popular game.

Welcome to humanity's new war: silent, high stakes, and unseen. This is a life-or-death mission for ONI's black-ops team, Kilo-Five, which is tasked with preventing the ruthless Elites, once the military leaders of the Covenant, from regrouping and threatening humankind again. What began as a routine dirty-tricks operation??keeping the Elites busy with their own insurrection??turns into a desperate bid to extract one member of Kilo-Five from the seething heart of an alien civil war. But troubles never come singly for Kilo-Five. Colonial terrorism is once again surfacing on one of the worlds that survived the war against the Covenant, and the man behind it is much more than just a name to Spartan-010. Meanwhile, the treasure trove of Forerunner technology recovered from the shield world of Onyx is being put to work while a kidnapped Elite plots vengeance on the humans he fears will bring his people to the brink of destruction… (mer)

It's the second volume in a series of novels based on a game I haven't played, and while I admired the author's efforts to make a human/alien dynamic that worked, most of it sailed over my head. ( )

I'm not into video games, and have never played Halo, but the universe is very interesting to me, and the books are pretty well written for game spin offs. ( )

About a quarter of the way through I paused in disappointment with what is going on with Hasley. I don't approve of her moral choices necessarily but I want to see more of her and I think that a morally ambivalent spy organization like OMNI should be a little more lenient in their outlook on her actions.

Beyond that, the book delivers with more intrigue and action as the navy and OMNI play of the Arbiter and his foes against each other in an effort to weaken the Elite society on their home world.

Spartan Naomi finds out who her father is.

On the shield world we follow a captured Elite and we continue to learn more about the Forerunners and their tech. I really enjoyed this part of the book as archeology is mixed with military sci-fi. We learn of the Forerunner Dedict and his war with humankind and possible efforts to find his hidden resting place. I feel like we will find out more about this in the game coming out next month. ( )
