In the final years of the Forerunner empire, chaos ideas. The Flood―a frightening shape-changing parasite―has arrived in strength, aided by way of unforeseen allies. inner strife in the ecumene has desperately weakened Forerunner defenses.
Too little, too overdue, the criminal expense of Juridicals is barely now investigating attainable crimes through the grasp Builder and others. Evidence-gathering brokers identified jointly as Catalog were dispatched to assemble testimony from the Librarian and both Didacts: the Ur-Didact, treacherously deserted in a Flood-infested approach, and the Bornstellar Didact, who accompanies the Librarian as she preserves specimens opposed to the dire chance of Halo extermination.
Facing the approaching cave in in their civilization, the Librarian and the Ur-Didact show what they find out about the connection among the long-vanished Precursors and the Flood.
The Precursors created many technological species, together with humanity and the Forerunners. however the roots of the Flood will be present in an act of huge barbarity, performed past our galaxy ten million years before...
Because of that barbarism, a better evil looms. in basic terms the Ur-Didact and the Librarian--husband and spouse driven into determined conflict--hold the keys to an answer.
Facing the implications of a mythic tragedy, one in every of them needs to now devote the best atrocity of all time―to hinder an insane evil from dominating the complete universe.
