The latest Halo novel is upon us. Praise Matt Forbeck. Halo: Bad Blood was released on June 26th and follows our good old friend Edward Buck, former ODST badass and now proud Spartan. The predecessor of this book is Halo: New Blood, also written by Matt Forbeck. In that book, we have seen Buck become a Spartan. Then Halo 5 came and we saw Buck the Spartan in action. I personally prefer him to be an ODST but that is just my opinion.

Bad Blood is the first big lore that is given to us after the events of Halo 5. To my knowledge, the only past Halo 5 lore we had before Bad Blood was the Rossbachs World story in Fractures.

In Bad Blood, we follow Blue Team and Team Osiris as they struggle to figure out what evil Cortana is up to. Buck is given a secret mission and reforms his old squad Alpha Nine to accomplish said mission.

Since I haven’t read both books yet I can’t really say more and probably shouldn’t either way. We all have to read it anyway, right? Right? I am really looking forward to reading both books. I have always loved Buck and of course Veronica Dare. But since time is precious and I have all sorts of other things to do, I’m way behind with the books. The next book on my Halo to do list is Shadow of Intent.

Have a grand time reading whatever, but make sure it’s Halo.
