A great, exciting, and sad part of the halo universe.
- Hugo John-Charles
Great quick read for Halo fan An intimate, close-knit story which is cleverly maneuvered into the existing Halo lore.
- Max Mitchell
Was really good I loved this book but I wish they didn’t leave us on such a huge cliffhanger
- Manuel Bautista
Fulfilling Entertaining characters. Enjoyed the adventure they went on. Sadly these type of stories don’t have a continuation in the HALO universe.
- German Garcia
A little bit out of the regular halo story Lacking most of the military side that would be a core part of a halo book this story still manages to pull a short but interesting human tale from the same universe a few years after the halo 4 events. A little bit heavy on the emotional characterization for what the book series is used to, but creates a good opening for more stories to part from it.

Smoke and shadow Great read wish there was a follow-up
- Begocer Lehmann
Another great short novel. Too short though, I literally am still scrambling from almost toppling over the edge of my seat from its abrupt cliffhanger. This little sliver of joy may mean these characters will be present or mentioned in Halo Wars 2. That, or a serious Blomkamp was pulled on us to have us create infinite possibilities of what could happen after with no continuation. Loved the references, returning namesake, the subtle nods/hinting and fresh view this story offers. Did I mention it was too short?

Loved it! Must-read, couldn’t stop reading this. So good.
