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.

    " As a longtime fan of the Halo series, this book not only gave me an entertaining experience, but also a new outlook at the storyline. I read this book because there were so many questions asked in Halo 4 that I needed answers to. After reading this, not only did I get a few answers to said questions, but I also looked at things differently in the Halo universe. Seeing the humans trying to keep the former Covenant races from regaining power and the methods they used made me think of them as no better than the aliens who originally tried to commit genocide on them. One of the most influential books thanks to my all-time favorite author. "

    " The 2nd book in the kilo five series didn't fail to disappoint. Full of action, suspense and character development. What's not to love? "

    " To be honest, this book only gets three stars because I love the Halo universe. The Thursday War brings together many threads of the story line that result in the circumstances of Halo 4. However, I am still not a fan of Traviss' science fiction writing. This story lacks imagination and lacks follow-through on many of the interesting character developing conflicts. Also, I feel like there was a lot of opportunity to develop the culture of Sanghelios which ended up being squandered on unimaginative analogies with feudal Europe. The Thursday War describes pivotal developments for the Halo storyline but overall flops on delivery. "
