The newest action-packed addition to the Halo series, Eric Nylund's Halo: Ghosts of Onyx.

The Spartan-II program has gone public. Tales of super-soldiers fending off thousands of Covenant attacks have become the stuff of legend.

But just how many Spartans are left?

While the Master Chief defends a besieged Earth, and the myriad factions of the Covenant continue their crusade to eliminate humanity, an ultrasecret cell of the Office of Naval Intelligence known as "Section Three" devises a plan to buy the UNSC vital time. They're going to need hundreds of willing soldiers, though . . . and one more Spartan to get the job done.

The planet Onyx is virtually abandoned and the perfect place to set this new plan in motion. But when the Master Chief destroys Halo, something is triggered deep within Onyx: Ancient Forerunner technology stirs, and fleets of UNSC and Covenant race to claim it to change the course of the Human-Covenant War.

But this reawakened and ancient force may have plans of its own . . .

Arguably one of the better Halo books, Eric Nylund weaves a tale that dosn't heavily focus on the events and characters of the game (much like The Cole Protocol). The plot is original and revealing, as we learn the origins of the Spartan III's and the fate of several key characters.

This book was pretty good overall but what didn't add up was how the Sentinels were so hard to kill.(For people who have played the games you'll know what I am talking about.)
