Summary:

An original novel set in the Halo Universe and based on the New York Times bestselling video game series!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...

    Halo last light is a decent read, but for someone like myself who adored the Ghosts of Onyx novel, it just doesn't do it justice. It takes characters that I had a connection to and made them a bit bleak. The story is solid with many part I deeply enjoyed, but i would recommend Ghosts or Onxy or the Kilo-Five trilogy over this particular stand alone, any day.
