Toby is a good writer. I believe he’ll do very well with the Halo franchise. The sad thing is that the novels are far better stories than the games and most gamers don’t enjoy reading.

The 5th novel anthony is called Conntact Harvest and you can find it at about any store that sells books (by the way i loved it). I’m excited to read this book (even though the MC probably wont be in it, i belive this because as all “die hard”halo fans know Master Cheif, or John 117, was part of Blue Team and is the only member of that team still in time, at end of 4th book the other 2 went to shild world so yea they kinda do but dont exeist anymore), if anyone finds detail about this book, other than what is on bungie.net, post the site please.

Eric Nylund just needs to continue off of “Ghosts of Onyx” and do the Halo 2 novel and put what Blue Team, the surviving Spartan III’s, and Doctor Halsey do to get out of the Shield World. Then transition into Halo 3

The Halo Book series isAWESOME !!! These are really well written, I do prefer Nylund writing them though1 ;-]

I would love for them to continue where “Ghosts of Onyx” left off. Dr. Halsey and the Spartans went to a shield world through a slipspace portal. . . I NEED to know the rest of the story!!!! AGGGHHH
