The Kilo Five series moves even closer to Halo 4!
Karen Traviss began her Kilo Five trilogy last year with Halo: Glasslands, and today it has been announced that the next novel, The Thursday War, will be on its way later this year. Intended to bridge the three-year gap between Halo 3 and this year's anticipated sequel Halo 4, the series follows the remaining Spartan-IIs and Spartan-IIIs along with Dr Catherine Halsey as they escape a Dyson Sphere World, only to find the galaxy at large on the brink of mass civil war pandemics with human and Covenant tensions steadily rising. The Thursday War deals with the discovery of Forerunner technology leading to humans pressing the pressure on their foes and moving closer towards battle. How much impact all of this will have in Halo 4's core narrative remains to be seen, but for now it's certainly more than a sufficient time-filler. Halo: The Thursday War is due for publication on October 2nd; Halo 4 is set to ship on November 6th.
