Dear Mr. Bear-

I haven't had a chance to read your second Forerunner Saga book yet, but I plan to purchase it as soon as it pops up in my local bookstore

That being said, I have read about several elements of the story second-hand through Halopedia ( I spend a lot of my spare time editing on the site), and I was wondering if you could clarify a few things... I've regrettably already spoiler'd myself, so rest assured you won't be ruining the story for me : )

1. Is the Precursor first encountered on Charum Hakkor a Precursor in its normal state, a single Flood-infected Precursor, or a Gravemind made up of many corpses? Also, when it says that the Flood and Precursors are the same, does it mean that they are literally the same species, or that all Precursors were infected?

2. Exactly how many Halo Rings are there? I got the impression that the original twelve were separate from the six that were at Installation 00 in the first book.

Thanks in advance!

There are indeed a few more details in the actual book. Hope you get back to us after closer study. Thanks, Andrew!
