As TF29 heads into the Glasshutte for a final confrontation with the
pro-aug forces, two questions remain in Adam Jensen's mind: what will
this mean for the future of augmentation and will the real
conspirators ever come to light?
The Master Chief and Blue Team are deployed by the UNSC to Alpha
Corvi II, a precarious human colony world, seeking to halt the
Covenant's efforts to uncover something hidden below the planet's
surface. Before they were legends in the Halo universe, they were
soldiers on the front lines. Alpha Corvi II is under a full-scale
attack by humanity's newfound enemy, the Covenant. While most of the
UNSC's forces have been ordered to defend the colony's primary city,
a Covenant strike team has infiltrated a small mining settlement.
With resources limited, the UNSC sends the Spartans--the Master Chief
and Blue Team--to neutralize the alien threat and discover what
they're after. The Spartan strike team quickly finds out that they
will have to rely on each other and a small cadre of human rebels in
order to survive and complete their mission. Writer Alex Irvine
(Halo: Rise of Atriox, Halo: Tales From Slipspace) and artist Dave
Crosland (Halo: Tales From Slipspace) lead us on a thrilling mission
from the early days of the three-decade long Covenant War.
