Description

An original full-length novel set in the Halo universe and based on the New York Times best-selling 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....

Never thought I wouldn't like a halo novel

I was so excited to find out what happened to onyx and then the book starts out being told from the perspective of a little girl... That in itself isn't bothersome but it's the context that makes it so. This is a halo novel. It's about super soldiers, fighting badass alien, in the midst of a galaxy that was once run by a race of beings unfathomably, technologically advanced... if I'm hearing about children it better be a spartan. The story is SO fucking whiny. It's constantly focusing on the pitiful emotions of the children that are the main characters. When ever you do finally get a bit of action, it's short, disappointing, incredibly anti-climactic. There's a few pages at the end where you're FINALLY teased with the promise of upcoming Spartan badassery and the author than completely deflates what 8 games and 19 novels have spent over a decade building in that of the reputation, ability, and intelligence of the GODS that are Spartans, with a pathetic attempt at tantalizing story telling that is only KINDLY described as unimaginative, short, and just plain inconsistent when every other instance you've seen a spartan. He allows both Spartans so go down with barely a fight, which was sooo obviously done just so the author could have an excuse for the stupid little girl and her kid friends to swoop in and save the day. It seemed like I was reading one of those books that's meant to pander to children as it's audience. Putting them in situations that just would never happen and making them the heroes of scenarios that would so obviously be taken care of by the 100s of other specialized adults that are obviously trying to solve the same issue. It's was just sad. And it make me more sad to think that now any story on onyx is going to include this boring little brat and her Patric band of average ass kids -_-

Halo

This book really followed the story of a bunch of kids in the aftermath of the war on Onyx (Trevelion) trying to co exist and prove there species can live together. It’s pretty good but it’s not your average halo book with soldiers Spartans and combat etc. I recommend it if you want to follow the lore and learn about halo 5 events but not if you only wanna read about usual combat etc.

Dont listen to the naysayers

While told from an unusual viewpoint, this Halo novel turned out to be one of my favorites. It ties in neatly with the most recent events in Halo 5 and tells the story of another important place in the universe at large during those events.

Not the best Halo book. Not the worst

Main protagonist isn't loveable nor are the friends of the protagonist. Character development is slow and then does an immediate 180 followed by a boring climax.

Love the book

Great continuation of the story at Onyx. Personable new characters and some interaction with the old but what I like about it is that it isn't all spartan / military fighting. There's some civilian life in there too

This is a Young Adult/Older Children’s Book

I have been tearing through the Halo books on Audible and this is the first one I couldn’t wait to be done with. It is for kids between 12-15, and to be honest is pretty formulaic in following the “Harry Potter” template. Seriously, I was waiting for Hagrid to show up and say, “You’re a Spartan Molly!”

Ok, it’s not that bad, but it is repetitive with the same plot told from different perspectives, as well as the same language used to describe characters over and over. Good for a kid, not so much for me. Considering that it starts with a planetary genocide and includes the death of a child, I’m not sure I would want someone in the target demographic reading this book in the first place, but maybe I’m out of touch. The simple fact is that while most of not all of the Halo books are written with the younger audience in mind, this was the first one where it was problematic. If you are older than 16, be warned.

Great Characters and story

I liked it how the author actually connected the story to the Halo game events and still made the characters feel important.

Für Fans der Neueren Halo Bücher ein Must

Führt Perspektiven aus Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, der Kilo 5 Trilogie und Halo 5: Guardians weiter. Beschrieben aus der sich von Hauptsächlich Zivilisten ist die Geschichte sehr persönlich erzählt.
