Since 2001’s Halo: The Fall of Reach, novels set within the Halo universe have released at a rate of over one a year. On March 2, 2021, Halo: Point of Light will release, and this novel will bring the Halo series up to 30 novels.
Halo: Point of Light ends a trilogy that began with Halo: Smoke and Shadow in 2016, then continued with 2019’s Halo: Renegades. All three books were written by Kelly Gay, who also featured in the Halo: Fractures short story compilation (which is separate from the 30 novels). The novel has been announced on Halo Waypoint.
The book, which will pick up in August 2558, is about Rion and the crew aboard Ace of Spades, as they outrun the fallout from previous books. The Office of Naval Intelligence is after them, and the synopsis provided says that they’ll be “unlocking untold secrets and even deadlier threats that have been hidden away for centuries from an unsuspecting universe.
