Book #63 - Ghosts of Onyx

51WT7OBdTWL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_My son got this book and gave it to me as another adventure of the Halo saga. Ghosts of Onyx takes places years after the other HALO books with a new group of soldiers training, the Spartan-IIIs.

The writing is good, but the story seems a little forced, almost like it was planned out with some ideas early on and then written to try and fit things together.

I didn’t love this book, and it seems so different from the original three books I read. However it’s got all the elements of a Halo game with the Covenant ahead in technology, but not thinking as clearly as the Spartans.

There’s also a Forerunner adventure at the end as some of their defense creations come to life.

Not a great book, but an easy one to read.
