Cover Reveal: Halo: Silentium

Tor has unveiled the title and cover for the final installment in the Forerunner Saga written by Greg Bear. Based on the popular Halo videogame franchise, the novels tell the story of the Forerunners, the original creators of the Halos.

I enjoyed both Halo: Cryptum and Halo: Primordium and can't wait to see how things finally turn out.

No actual synopsis has been released yet, but here's what Tor had to say about the storyline:
In Halo: Cryptum, Greg Bear began a three-book arc set in the era of the Forerunners, the ancient and enigmatic creators and builders of the Halos, which continued in Halo: Primordium. Now, in the last years of the Forerunner empire, chaos rules. The Flood—a horrifying shape-changing parasite—has arrived in force, aided by unexpected allies. Internal strife within the ecumene has desperately weakened Forerunner defenses.

Only the Ur-Didact and the Librarian—husband and wife pushed into desperate conflict—hold the keys to salvation. Facing the consequences of a mythic tragedy, one of them must now commit the greatest atrocity of all time—to prevent an unmatched evil from dominating the entire universe.

Halo: Silentium will be released on January 8, 2013.
