Wow, I've been waiting a long time for this. About bloody time. Although it's still quite a wait. Great series though.

The helmet in the cover isnt worn by spartan 2s. Where as naomi the spartan in focus of this trilogy is spartan 2.
The first book was very slow paced and ended just when it started to become interesting, the second one was great. I hope the third one wont disappoint

"Nayef" You never know about that helmet, remember her armor has a nanite system and they also have the huragok. Anything can happen between here and there.

Aside from that "Fantastic trilogy" I can't wait for this book!

The ODSTs also got a new set of ONI armor...that could be one of theirs.

I just hope not to see a sort of deja vu from a former stars wars writer: it could only be so desapointing to turnaround Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader roles and put this time the kid in a spartan suit (Naomi) and the father as a human terrorist and hear the phrase from Naomi:

"Staffan, I am your daughter!"

I just hope this family reunion unfoldes otherwise... not in a predictable way.

Will this really be the last book of the series? What about Jul? What about the civil war? Come man, this was a good read but it doesn't answer anything from The Thursday War...please tell me there's another one on the way..

I agree with Kurto51. They need to do a fourth book that wraps it up with the civil war, jul, and the love affairs in kilo five. I know it's a trilogy but still, it's a great series and should have more than 3 books
