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…

“Special Inspector Veta Lopis had been raised to hate and fear everything about the United Nations Space Command, from its sheer might and criminal war practices to the murderous thugs it called Spartans.”

Book Review: ‘Hunters in the Dark’ by Peter David

As a fan of the Halo video games and sci-fi literature, I thought I’d give Hunters in the Dark by Peter David a try. It’s a standalone Halo novel, so I didn’t have to worry about being committed to a long series, and I didn’t have to worry about catching up on anything. Alas, sometimes trying new things doesn’t always turn out well. Click here to read our full review.
