There's a story that takes place on Meridian following the Guardian awakening and escaping after the events in Halo 5. There's a story about Bornstellar after the firing of the Halo array. There's a story taking place on Venezia following the events of the Kilo-Five trilogy. One of the more surprising stories included is "Shadow of Intent", which is the entire short-story starring Rtas 'Vadum, the Half-Jaw Elite, who fought alongside the Master Chief and Arbiter during the final days of the Covenant War Halo 3.
This story was only ever released digitally up until now, and so is a very nice inclusion in this novel. Among other great stories that span across the events of Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 4, and Halo 5: Guardians.
Fans of Halo lore should give this book a try. Because it is all short-stories, it is very easy to pickup and read, and expands upon a lot of the things we have learned about from prior novels and Halo events.
For Star Wars fans like me, there are quite a few recognizable names, which is what led me to the book.
Fans of the game will also find a lot to enjoy as the various tales explore everything from the Forerunners to the Spartans and the Sangheili.
All that said, the book was a slow starter for me. It stars two Spartans named Tom and Lucy who have a hard to believe adventure in the void of space without suits to save a fellow Spartan.
It takes place on a glassed world called Meridian and follows a group of survivors who get a strange message. But the story ends there without feeling complete. However, the third story in the anthology turns things around. Like the others, you were strong and swift and brave. A natural leader. But you had something they didn't. Can you guess? The scene fades to black] Was I wrong?
How far did he fall? Marine 3: Two kilometers, easy. Sergeant Johnson: Stay sharp! Corpsman: His armor's locked up. Heavy lift gear. We're not leaving him here. Master Chief: [grabs Johnson's shoulder and pulls himself to his feet] Yeah, you're not. Sergeant Johnson: Crazy fool. Why do you always jump?! One of these days, you're gonna land on something as stubborn as you are!
And I don't do bits and pieces. Where is Cortana? Sergeant Johnson: Corporal? Make it quick. Corpsman: Sorry, sir.
Master Chief grabs a pistol and shoves it between the Arbiter's lower mandibles] Sergeant Johnson: Chief, wait! The Arbiter's with us! Come on, now. We've got enough to worry about without you two trying to kill each other.
Arbiter: [snaps threateningly at Master Chief] Were it so easy. Gunnery Sergeant Reynolds: [chuckles] Kiss…my…ass. Prophet of Truth: You are, all of you, vermin. Cowering in the dirt, thinking…what, I wonder? That you might escape the coming fire?
Your world will burn until its surface is but glass, and not even your Demon will live to creep, blackened from its hole, to mar the reflection of our passage. The culmination of our Journey, for your destruction is the will of the gods!
And I? I am their instrument! Sergeant Johnson: Cocky bastard…just loves to run his mouth. Master Chief: Does he usually mention me? Keyes: Give the order!
HALO: Shadow of Intent
We're closing shop! Master Chief: [grabbing the computer back] Wait. Leave her alone. You tried to kill me. She had the Activation Index.
And you were going to destroy my Installation. You did destroy my Installation. Now I have only one function: to help you, Reclaimer, as I always should have done.
Rtas 'Vadum: Did you not hear? Your world is doomed. A Flood army, a Gravemind, has you in its sights. You barely survived a small contamination. Lord Hood: And you, Ship Master, just glassed half a continent!
Maybe the Flood isn't all I should be worried about. Rtas 'Vadum: One single Flood spore can destroy a species. Were it not for the Arbiter's counsel, I would have glassed your entire planet!
Did you see her condition? How damaged she is? She could be corrupted, for all we know. Her solution could be a Flood trap. Lord Hood: Earth You trust Cortana that much?
