Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p> The second book of the Glasslands trilogy, another action packed adventure in the vast universe of the Halo game where the Human-Covenant War rages on. </p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p>
