The Kilo-Five Trilogy, written by Karen Traviss, will flesh out the events of the post-war era following Halo 3, the final game in the Halo Trilogy. A sequel to the hit 2006 novel Halo: Ghosts of Onyx is the first book in the Kilo-Five Trilogy, titled Halo: Glasslands, and published on October 25, 2011. The second book in the trilogy, Halo: The Thursday War, came out before Halo 4 on October 2, 2012. The final book in the trilogy, Halo: Mortal Dictata, will be released in January 2014.
The trilogy centers around a Special Ops team, tasked with sowing dissension amongst the Sangheili after the events of the Human-Covenant war. Their mission is threefold: to arm the faction that opposes the Arbiter's faction (on the basis of the Office of Naval Intelligence's concern that the Arbiter is not a true ally to humanity), to keep both sides at each others' throats, and to gather intelligence.
The team was hand picked by Admiral Parangosky and consists of:
- A Sangheili language and culture expert, doctor Evan Philips.
- Parangosky's personal AI, Black Box (usually abbreviated to BB)
- Three ODSTs: Vaz, Mal and Devereaux
- Active SPARTAN-II Naomi-010.
It also elaborates on why the UNSC ends up with significant advances in technology; early on the team recovers a Huragok, who upgrades their equipment, and leads them to find other Huragok; ones that have been active since the time of the Forerunners (some 100,000 years or so).
