I just finished reading the Thursday War. Excellent book, but let's get down to business. If you haven't yet read it and wish to not be spoiled, this is your cue to look away. [b]CONFIRMED:[/b] -The UNSC Infinity has its trial runs (Thursday War, if you will) over Sanghelios in an effort to help/intimidate the Arbiter. -Halsey is aboard the Infinity (for the time being). -Hood is aware that Parangoski is pulling strings in the background to some extent (hinted at heavily as he fires upon 'Telcam's forces). -Spartan IV's are operational on the Infinity (Dev meets one and describes him as handsome). -The Arbiter wins the first round of the Civil War (Jul's wife Raia is killed in the battle by Port Stanely). -Jul is experimented on to see if ONI can poison the Elites food supply and, in conversation with Prone to Drift, an Engineer, he discovers that the Didact has a grudge against humans for reasons both known and unknown, and that he is in stasis on Requiem. -Jul escapes ONI confinement on Onyx to arrive at an outer Elite world using an elaborate portal system, where he teaches the locals about what he has learned, and plots to use them to avenge Raia's death, which he learns of soon after escaping. -Naomi and Vaz infiltrate Venezia and find Naomi's father with a jackal, who has, somehow, become the proprietor of the Pious Inquisitor (fancy hearing that name again). [b]HINTED:[/b] -Jul and/or Telcam will spearhead the "Storm" faction of the Covenant, who will travel to Requiem to wake the Didact and take revenge upon mankind. -The Didact still has anti-human feelings, which may be fleshed out upon discovery of human advancement. -Parangoski is a miserable -blam!-. Anyone else interested by the developments made in this book? I found it very interesting to see how things are slowly growing closer to Halo 4 era sentiments and technology, as well as the inclusion of several key Halo 4 characters (Lasky and Del Rio, for example.). Thoughts on the book in general? [Edited on 10.02.2012 7:01 PM PDT]
