The next novel in the, apparently brilliant, series expanding the Halo universe has been announced. It will be called Halo: The Thursday War, which sounds much more exciting that Craig David‘s week.
It’s being written by Karen Traviss and picks up right from the end of her previous book in the Kilo-Five series, Halo: Glasslands. It will tell the story of life after the Human-Covenant war with humans and elites still skirmishing and bickering amongst themselves.
343 Industries Frank O’Connor said that The Thursday War will set up “the events and circumstances that will come to define the state of the Halo universe in Halo 4.” It’s out on October 2nd in hardback and audio book, although there’s no mention of a digital release.
Here’s the cover, it’s really cheesy and dated but don’t let that put you off.
