The New York Times bestseller-part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series Halo! The twenty-sixth century. Once considered clandestine, the Spartan-II program has now gone public. Tales of armored super-soldiers fending off thousands of Covenant attacks have become the stuff of legend. While the Master Chief defends a besieged Earth, and the myriad factions of the Covenant continue their crusade to eliminate humanity, an ultra-secret cell of the Office of Naval Intelligence known as "Section Three" devises a plan to buy the UNSC vital time. It will 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 vessels race to claim it and change the course of the Human-Covenant War. But this reawakened and ancient force may have plans of its own.

"GHOSTS OF ONYX expands Halo, the world created by Microsoft's Xbox game. This surprisingly strong adventure translates well to audio, complemented by Jonathan Davis's steady narration. He traverses the human versus alien world of military operations and weapons acronyms with precision and mitigates the sterile military setting with warm, human tones. As the superhuman Spartan warriors attempt to capture Onyx technologies, Davis successfully weaves the plot's many threads, creating a cohesive, gripping story. The only drawback to this audiobook comes from its numerous flashbacks. Each episode is introduced by date, but the timeline is hard to follow. In the final scenes the stories merge, ending the confusion. Patient listeners will find GHOSTS OF ONYX a suspenseful interstellar ride. C.A. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
