Hi Greg, first off big fan of the Halo franchise, love what you,ve done with the Forerunner Trilogy so far.
I just have a question regarding how many halos there are and I'm hoping you could clear it up for me. In Halo: Cryptum it states 12 halos(30,000km in size) were made by the Master Builder and another 6(10,000km in size) were made by the Librarian. In the battle of the forerunner capital 10 of the larger halos were destroyed while 1 escaped to join the Librarian's 6 and was repaired i think and the last 1 of those 12 was in Medicant Bias' hands. In Primordium that ring is found by Didact and made smaller(30,000 down to 10,000km) and brought to the greater ark.
Ok so here's the question-based on that info shouldn't there be 8 halos instead of 7 composing the Halo array by the time the games take place? I could be wrong but I'm hoping you could clear this up. Thanks for your time.

We're noting all these very carefully, Brian! And book number three is in process right now...
