Description

The New York Times best-selling origin story of the Master Chief - part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series Halo!

The 26th century. Humanity has expanded beyond Earth’s system to hundreds of planets that colonists now call home. But the United Earth Government and the United Nations Space Command is struggling to control this vast empire. After exhausting all strategies to keep seething colonial insurrections from exploding into a full-blown interplanetary civil war, the UNSC has one last hope. At the Office of Naval Intelligence, Dr. Catherine Halsey has been hard at work on a top-secret program that could bring an end to the conflict...and it starts with 75 children, among them a six-year-old boy named John. And Halsey could never guess that this child will eventually become the final hope against an even greater peril engulfing the galaxy - the inexorable confrontation with a theocratic military alliance of alien races known as the Covenant.

This is the electrifying origin story of Spartan John-117 - the Master Chief - and of his legendary, unstoppable heroism in leading the resistance against humanity’s possible extinction.

The book is great the audiobook is eh

I love every single book in this series. The audiobook is good but seems to just fall short of being amazing. From the way he reads it, to the way he pronounces Mjolnir and ONI. It’s the little things, but I would still recommend to others

Couldn’t properly pronounce Mjolnir

Enjoyed the book
The space combat in ships can get a little dry and there’s a lot of it but I thoroughly enjoyed the telling of Johns story and how he became the soldier he appears as in the games

Reader couldn’t pronounce mjolnir properly and that made me cringe

Same as the previous fall of reach.

I bought the original audio book for the fall of reach roughly 4 months or so ago. Saw this book come up recently, looked at the description and the cover and they're different. If you have previously bought the old one, there is no need to buy it again.

Excellent

Loved the games, wanted to hear the story and fill in the lore that I didn't know. Very sad at times and very well described battles. Looking forward to the other Halo novels.

Narrator

My only real problem with this book is the Narrator, and his pronunciation of words some times pronouncing it correctly than the very next line would say it wrong.

GREAT STORY!!! But Reader was eehhh

I LOVED the story! But I just couldn’t feel any I get “emotion” from the reader. And it honestly bugged me throughout the story. BUT the story was Great!
