The Human-Covenant War, a desperate struggle for humankind's very survival, has reached its boiling point on the mysterious ring world called Halo. But the fierce Covenant warriors, the mightiest alien military force known, are not the only peril lying in wait.As the fortress world of Reach and its brave defenders were bombarded to rubble, a single cruiser fled the carnage with the battle's only human survivors-Captain Keyes, his crew of a few hundred marines, and the last remaining SPARTAN super-soldier, the Master Chief.With the cruiser's artificial intelligence, Cortana, concealed in his battle armor, the Master Chief crash-lands on Halo in the midst of a massive Covenant occupation. Curiously, the alien soldiers appear to be searching for something hidden on the ring. Built by a long-dead race, Halo harbors many deadly secrets, but one overshadows them all. Now the Master Chief must lead the scattered troops in a brutal race to unravel Halo's darkest mystery-and unleash its greatest source of power.… (més)

Too many combat scenes not enough plot or lore. 4/10 ( )

The Fall of Reach and First Strike by Eric Nylund were superior works, this novelization of the game just is not as good. ( )

Like the first book I think this book is good but not great, it is the novelization of the first halo video game and I would say that is where most of the faults begin.

I have to start with bad on this one, it is strange to say this but this book is TOO much like the video game. It doesn't just go through the story in the same way but describes the combat in an obnoxious manner. Imagine a friend talking you through a game they recently played but instead of giving you a broad description of story and basic points of action, they describe every single minion they kill and every single step they took, it would drive you mad... that's what this book does. In the first book I complimented the combat for being well written and it is the exact opposite here, I hated reading the Master Chief sections. The only thing worth while in these sections were the small bits of Master Chiefs thoughts and struggles during his scenes, but even they are not worth it, you can only describe killing a grunt, elite, or jackal so many times before it starts to bore you to madness.

Which brings me the good, pretty much every thing else. There are so many good background characters that I wish they could've dominated the novel more. All of the ODST section were amazing, especially Lieutenant McKay. The combat scenes with the ODST are drastically better than Master Chief's, the combat is interesting, creative, and exciting. You get to know some of the soldiers (but the character development is still bare minimum) and you get some really funny military banter with the occasional badass soldier doing something that completely changes the battle. Then you have Captain Keyes' story, where it starts out really good then ends very weird and sad. But I can't forget what should be a buddy cop movie in the Halo universe with the fearful and intelligent grunt named Yayap and the self righteous and ambitious Elite Zuka 'Zamamee, how much money do I need to send to someone to make that.

There are more really good characters in this novel and Master Chief's story drags the book down so much to the point where if you want to read this book I would advise you to skip his sections and just read the other character's stories. Play the game for Chief but read the book for the background. ( )

The reviews online for this book aren't great, and frankly they're right. The plot is predictable, and there isn't much character development. Just lots and lots of blow-by-blow combat. It gets wearing after a while, and I found this book at bit of a slog. Not recommended.

Read this purely because I loved the game. Nice to step into that world but as this part was a direct copy of the story of the game it was not as good as the others. ( )
