The Human-Covenant war rages on as the alien juggernaut sweeps inexorably toward its final goal: destruction of all human life. Halo has been destroyed and the threat it posed to sentient life neutralized. But victory has come at a terrible cost for the UNSC. Thousands of valiant soldiers fell in the battle to prevent the alien construct from falling into the enemy's clutches. Now, everything depends on the Spartan known as the 'Master Chief'. Yet even with the aid of the artificial intelligence Cortana, the Master Chief will be hard-pressed to rescue survivors and evade the Covenant ships patrolling the remains of Halo in debris-strewn space. Ahead lies a dangerous voyage home, through a gauntlet of Covenant forces. For the sake of all, the Master Chief and his war-torn squad must not only survive, but take the fight to the enemy with a decisive first strike.

Reviews

Best-selling writers Nylund (www.ericnylund.net) and Dietz (williamcdietz.com) expand on the foundations of the megapopular Xbox videogame series of the same name (Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo 2, and Halo 3) in the first three of five entries in this military sf epic. The Fall of Reach is a sort of prequel, describing the life and background of Halo hero Master Chief and more. The saga continues in The Flood, essentially a novelization of the first Halo game. The third entry, First Strike, provides a transition from the end of the first Halo game to the beginning of its follow-up, Halo 2. Nylund's two titles are more satisfying than Dietz's, perhaps because he had the liberty of supplying details and cohesion in the Halo universe, while Dietz had the difficult task of rendering a videogame into prose. The narration by multitalented Todd McLaren (toddmclaren.com) is flexible and intense across all three titles. Part of a franchise, these audiobooks are of definite interest to public libraries.
