    Fully 100,000 years ago, the galaxy was populated by a great variety of beings. But one species - eons beyond all others in both technology and knowledge - achieved dominance. They ruled in peace but met opposition with quick and brutal effectiveness. They were the Forerunners - the keepers of the Mantle, the next stage of life in the Universe’s Living Time. And then they vanished. This is their story.

    Kyle says: "Utterly Amazing, Mind Expanding"
    "One giant step back in time."

    What did you love best about Halo: Cryptum?

    HALO orginally takes place some 500 years in the future, Cryptum takes place 10,000 years in the past. This book takes you back but in a way that you don't feel lost. It explains the history of history, and does it in a way that one can easily link back to future.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, Bornstellar (spelling is hard when you listen to a book) has a unique position and is placed in a difficult world, one that will be ending soon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Bornstellar's home world in the Orion Nebula made my imagination run wild with a fascinating sky of stars and nebula. The vistas and architecture could be seen and I felt like I was on an alien world when I read.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book is very much a history of the Forerunners, while it is based on the life of Bornstellar there is a detachment that I have, knowing that in the end these people will ultimately meet their fate with the HALO's


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book for those of us that are into the HALO universe. I would recommend reading the other books before starting this series.
