Joseph Staten's return to the Halo universe, Halo: Shadow of Intent, has had some new plot details revealed as well as a sleek cover photo.
A plethora of Halo novels were announced earlier this year, one of those being Shadow of Intent, written by former Bungie writer Joseph Staten. As revealed on HaloWaypoint.com, the book will center around Rtas 'Vadum, best known as Halfjaw and the Shipmaster. A prophet prelate threatens the existence of the sangheili race and it's up to Rtas to protect the entire race. Though that is the extent of the plot details, the cover shows Halo 2-era Rtas and a mysterious new female character side-by-side with energy swords (and staffs) in hand. The novel will release this December 7th, 2015 and you can pre-order it now.
