    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"
    "Worth the read for Halo fans."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Halo: Cryptum the most enjoyable?

    The obvious point of this book is to give more back story to the Halo universe. It does this fairly well. The story is even compelling which is not easy when a author is given a universe he did not create and told to write its history. It does a good job explaining the struggles that lead to the Halo's creation and use. There are still quite a few questions however that i am hoping the next two books will answer.


    Did Holter Graham do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The characters were well differentiated until the end of the book then the main character suddenly became Scottish.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator went to the William Shatner school of awkward mid-sentance pauses and suddenly becomes scottish in the last chapter of the book. Other than that the story was enjoyable for Halo fans.
