GHOSTS OF ONYX expands Halo, the world created by Microsoft's Xbox game. This surprisingly strong adventure translates well to audio, complemented by Jonathan Davis's steady narration. He traverses the human versus alien world of military operations and weapons acronyms with precision and mitigates the sterile military setting with warm, human tones. As the superhuman Spartan warriors attempt to capture Onyx technologies, Davis successfully weaves the plot's many threads, creating a cohesive, gripping story. The only drawback to this audiobook comes from its numerous flashbacks. Each episode is introduced by date, but the timeline is hard to follow. In the final scenes the stories merge, ending the confusion. Patient listeners will find GHOSTS OF ONYX a suspenseful interstellar ride.
