    In the wake of apparent self-destruction of the Forerunner empire, two humans - Chakas and Riser - are like flotsam washed up on very strange shores indeed. Captured by the Master Builder, misplaced during a furious battle in space, they now find themselves on an inverted world where horizons rise into the sky, and where humans of all kinds are trapped in a perilous cycle of horror and neglect. For they have become both research animals and strategic pawns in a cosmic game whose madness knows no end....

    Where does Halo: Primordium rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As an avid fan of the game this novel is based on, I have to say that having Tim Dadabo narrating this story is a pleasure. He's able to give every character a very distinctive voice that makes following the story very easy. Also his narration really helps you get through the early slower parts of the book. Now even though I haven't read the entire book yet (I'm 80 percent of the way through reading it while listening) I eagerly await the end of the book when I'm positive a character who is very famous in the Halo novels will show up. And once Mr. Dadabo slips into that voice my face will be full of fanboy glee.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The second half of the story once the main characters reach the camp and meet up with Chakas' old friend Riser is where the story REALLY starts to pick up speed. I'm finding it very hard to put the book, and the audiobook, down at this point. I can't wait to finish this book and see where it all leads.


    Have you listened to any of Timothy Dadabo’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first performance by him


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes, but I didn't


    Any additional comments?

    Get the audiobook. Without it I don't know if I would have gotten through this book as fast as I did. Especially since the first half of the book is just walking around and talking about things, with very little action (but great character development).
