    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.

    Story

    First off, I am a huge Halo fan. I fall in love with series/games because of rich back story. The Halo universe if so expansive and rich that every story that is told within it can capture your attention and imagination. The origin story of Spartan 117 (John) was amazingly portrayed within the story "Fall of Reach", and "First Strike" is a wonderful followup. While personally I enjoyed "Fall of Reach" more (and highly recommend it as well!), this story is an amazing insight to the missions of the 117 after the incident on Halo.

    On the narrator Todd McLaren: He is, in my opinion, one of the greatest narrators on Audible. The mark of a good narrator is that you don't realize you are listening to one. His portrayal of 117 and the rest of the Halo universe is easily my favorite and is an amazing inspiration for a young narrator like myself.

    Hope everyone else enjoyed both this title and "Fall of Reach" as much as I did! :)

    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.

    Story

    Greg Bear's work is absolutely a must for any Halo fan who has wondered about the Forerunners and their society. His writing is phenomenal, and the narrator was absolutely perfect for young Born. Although he went a little Scottish at the end, but the rest of the book was captivating and amazing!
