Halo 5: Guardians is out today, and to celebrate, Gallery Books has given us two copies of Troy Denning’s Halo: Last Light to giveaway! Last Light is part detective story and part treasure hunt as detective Veta Lopis investigates a series of murders in an elaborate cave system despite the interference from Spartans who are hunting the caves for an ancient relic. As things sprawl into rebellion and warfare, the story heats up for lots of fun. On top of that, the book contains a downloadable content code for Halo 5: Guardians.

New Release and Review: ‘Halo: Last Light’ by Troy Denning

Halo: Last Light by Troy Denning is out today from Gallery Books. Click here to read our full review.

It is 2553, and the three-decade long Covenant War that defined a generation has suddenly drawn to a close. Yet, in the remotest parts of human space, tensions remain that threaten to overflow into another full-scale conflict. Beneath the surface of the planet Gao lies a vast cavern system renowned for its therapeutic effects and rumored miraculous cures. But now Gao natives are turning up brutally murdered down there—violent acts that happen to coincide with the recent arrival of a UNSC research battalion protected by Spartan Blue Team, led by the renowned Spartan-II Fred-104.

Maverick detective Veta Lopis of the Gao Ministry of Protection is only trying to do her job as the Special Inspector assigned to catch a serial killer—one who is possibly hiding within the Spartan ranks—but she never anticipates the situation spiraling out of control into an all-out crisis. When Gao is revealed to harbor ancient Forerunner technology that could solidify the UNSC’s military supremacy for centuries to come, Insurrection loyalists within the planetary government will do anything—even align with a vicious faction of what remains of the Covenant—to ensure that never happens…
