Wars end. But hatred, guilt, and devotion can endure beyond the grave.

With the Covenant War over, the Office of Naval Intelligence faces old grievances rising again to threaten Earth. The angry, bitter colonies, still with scores to settle from the insurrection put on hold for thirty years, now want justice -- and so does a man whose life was torn apart by ONI when his daughter was abducted for the SPARTAN-II program. Black ops squad Kilo-Five find their loyalties tested beyond breaking point when the father of their Spartan comrade, still searching for the truth about her disappearance, prepares to glass Earth's cities to get an answer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing conclusion Very sad that this story is over but Mortal Dictata brought it to an appropriate end. Here's hoping Karen writes more for the Halo universe because she really makes it feel real and legitimate.

Editorial Reviews

"Traviss here employs a raw, unadorned style that makes this a real page-turner. But while Dictata is a quick read, it's not quickly forgotten.. Dictata is also Traviss's best Halo novel." -Paul Semel, Official Xbox Magazine
