Halo: The Thursday War is the riveting new sequel in the New York Times bestselling Kilo-Five trilogy, based on the popular gaming franchise.
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.

If you love the Halo books by Eric Nylund, William C. Dietz, Joseph Staten and all the others then read this book and the one before it, Halo: Glasslands. It is one fine sci-fi example.
