Tor Books have announced that the second novel in Karen Traviss’ trilogy of “Halo” books will be called “Halo: The Thursday War,” and it will be released on October 2.
Picking up where last year’s “Halo: Glasslands” left off, the novel explores the fragile peace that exists between Earth and the Covenant following the war.
In the press release, Traviss explains that, “I wanted to focus on what it feels like to operate in a fragile ceasefire that’s turning into a mass of small, unpredictable wars where the enemy is much harder to spot and define. It’s not about big set piece space battles, superheroes, and hardware; this is a messy conflict seen at close quarters by real people with their own problems, whether those people are human, alien, or artificial intelligences.”
“Halo: The Thursday War” will be released in both hardcover and as an audiobook.
