Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityNod: The Banished from ''VideoGame/HaloWars2'' are mentioned and the Keeper's fear of them is a minor plot point.


Added DiffLines:

* TheDreaded: The Spartans are this to the criminal underworld. So much so a plan is derailed due to the fact the criminals are willing to turn over undercover ONI agents to them rather than fight or run.

Added DiffLines:

* LotusEaterMachine: A DownplayedTrope example is the Sanctuary of the Keepers. It is a Forerunner location which projects a field of tranquility. This was apparently a place criminals were sent to regain their sense of calm. Intrepid Eye hopes to use it to make humanity a more deserving species.


Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheDog: Veta discovers some Gao citizens being held prisoner by the Keepers. She is forced to abandon them in order to carry out her mission.

Added DiffLines:

* GoingNative: Veta has adopted far quicker to ONI's service than she ever expected. They've even provided her a suit of modified Spartan armor.


Added DiffLines:

* TeamMom: Even more so than the first book, Veta has adopted this attitude toward the Ferrets.

A novel set in the ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' universe by Creator/TroyDenning and sequel to the novel ''Literature/HaloLastLight''.

December 2553. Less than a year after the end of the Covenant War, a string of violent incidents continues to threaten the tenuous peace in human-held space, culminating in the assassination of UNSC fleet admiral Graselyn Tuwa and the abduction of her family. It is a provocation so outrageous that the Office of Naval Intelligence must retaliate swiftly and ferociously—but only after its operatives identify her killer and rescue the hostages.

This mission will be the first for homicide-detective-turned-ONI-operative Veta Lopis and her young team of Spartan-[=IIIs=], and something feels wrong from the start. The obvious suspect is an infamous Brute who leads the Keepers of the One Freedom, an ex-Covenant splinter group in fierce opposition to the UNSC. But Lopis and her team soon realize that the truth is much more insidious than they could ever have imagined, and with Fred-104, Kelly-087, and Linda-058 of Blue Team for combat support, they must stop a plan hatched in the bowels of the secret research station Argent Moon—a plan so sinister it could destroy all those still reeling from thirty years of intergalactic conflict….
