Publisher's Summary

Welcome to humanity’s new war: silent, high stakes, and unseen. This is a life-or-death mission for ONI’s black-ops team, Kilo-Five, which is tasked with preventing the ruthless Elites, once the military leaders of the Covenant, from regrouping and threatening humankind again.
What began as a routine dirty-tricks operation - keeping the Elites busy with their own insurrection - turns into a desperate bid to extract one member of Kilo-Five from the seething heart of an alien civil war. But troubles never come singly for Kilo-Five. Colonial terrorism is once again surfacing on one of the worlds that survived the war against the Covenant, and the man behind it is much more than just a name to Spartan-010.
Meanwhile, the treasure trove of Forerunner technology recovered from the shield world of Onyx is being put to work while a kidnapped Elite plots vengeance on the humans he fears will bring his people to the brink of destruction.

Homerun Number 2 For Karen Traviss

What made the experience of listening to Halo: The Thursday War the most enjoyable?

Getting more sides to a complex story that I already know and love

What did you like best about this story?

The UNSC and ONI up to more shenanigans than I originally thought

What does Euan Morton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like the emotion he puts behind his aliens

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Cry? No. Laugh? Every time I hear Phylisssss

Any additional comments?

It's very hard to ruin Halo stories because they give you so much to work with. With that said, it's extremely hard to make an original storyline in the Halo Universe that is even better than the original storyline but Karen Traviss hits a homerun with the Kilo Five Trilogy Book 2
