The Covenant has collapsed after a long, brutal war that saw billions slaughtered on Earth and her colonies. For the first time in decades, however, peace finally seems possible. But though the fighting's stopped, the war is far from over: it's just gone underground. The UNSC's feared and secretive Office of Naval Intelligence recruits Kilo-Five, a team of ODSTs, a Spartan, and a diabolical AI to accelerate the Sangheili insurrection. Meanwhile, the Arbiter, the defector turned leader of a broken Covenant, struggles to stave off civil war among his divided people.



  • The narrator for this book is absolutely terrible. They are really bad. And as if that wasn't bad enough, the audio quality of the file is really poor. It sounds really low quality. I want my money back.
  • I really enjoy the team in this book and their mission presents them with some challenging ethical dilemmas. I can't wait to read the next book and find out how that storyline concludes. However, I must admit I'm becoming increasingly frustrated with the negative portrayal of Halsey. Spoiler alert: It's interesting to see Parangosky leading the operation considering she is the same person who authorized the Spartan II program, approved the theft of classified information, and funded the Spartan III program, which involved the use of child soldiers who were considered disposable. Yet, somehow, all the blame and animosity is directed towards Halsey. The entire team is fiercely loyal to Parangosky, viewing her as their leader and savior, while Halsey is painted as the sole villain. At least her soldiers were meant to be heroes, and they were intended to stay alive throughout their missions. I find it difficult to comprehend how the author can justify such intense hatred and hypocrisy. I hope there is more to the story that will be revealed, otherwise, this secondary plotline is incredibly disappointing.
  • The narrator has a real issue with pronouncing words correctly and has a pretty awful sense of pacing. However, the story itself is absolutely amazing, just like the majority of the Halo books.
  • If you've ever wondered what it would be like if Mackarov from Call of Duty shifted from terrorism to narrating audiobooks, well, now you know. However, once you become accustomed to it, it's not as terrible as it sounds. Despite that, the story itself is quite impressive and provides a comprehensive glimpse into the post-war activities. Even if you can't bear the narrator, the richness of the lore and the narrative make it worthwhile.
  • I really like the concept of the story in 'Halo: Glasslands' and the main plot is executed exceptionally well. However, the revisions made to the existing lore and the lack of respect for it negatively impact the book. The returning characters don't stay true to their original personalities, and Traviss goes overboard with criticizing Halsey. On the positive side, Euan Morton does a commendable job with the accents.
  • I had a hard time keeping track of the different characters and their voices in 'Halo: Glasslands'. It was a bit confusing, but as I got further into the book, I finally started to figure it out. By then, I was almost done with the book.
  • The story in 'Halo: Glasslands' is amazing, but I found it challenging to identify who was speaking in certain sections. The lack of differentiation between voices was a downside. They should have considered having Johnathan Davis narrate it.
  • The finest series of Halo books for sure, and I would not be far fetched to say it is in the top three series based on a game, movie or television show. A must read (though i prefer the audio version,Euan Morton does a spectacular job) series for halo fans!
