    Story
    (221)

    When humanity expanded beyond the safety of Earth to new stars and horizons, they never dreamed what dangers they would encounter there. When the alien juggernaut known as the Covenant declared holy war upon the fragile human empire, millions of lives were lost - but, millions of heroes rose to the challenge. In such a far-reaching conflict, not many of the stories of these heroes, both human and alien, have a chance to become legend.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in the Halo universe and anyone who enjoys a good story of any kind. Evolutions has it all, action, horror, drama, romance and mystery; all wrapped in an awesome Sci-fi package.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Admiral Preston J. Cole steps into the Halo Universe in a big way. Also Soren-066 has got to be up there as one of my favorites now.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Jen Taylor and Steve Downes added a little extra something for fans of the Halo franchise.


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

    Each story had its own feel, some terrifying, some uplifting, some sad, some informative and some were just plain cool.

    Story

    The Covenant has collapsed after a long, brutal war that saw billions slaughtered on Earth and her colonies. For the first time in decades, however, peace finally seems possible. But though the fighting's stopped, the war is far from over: it's just gone underground. The UNSC's feared and secretive Office of Naval Intelligence recruits Kilo-Five, a team of ODSTs, a Spartan, and a diabolical AI to accelerate the Sangheili insurrection.

    S. Blackwell says: "Traviss at the top of her game"
    "One of the best in the Halo saga"

    Would you listen to Halo: Glasslands again? Why?

    Yes, this is a great continuation of the story started in Ghosts of Onyx.


    What other book might you compare Halo: Glasslands to and why?

    Glasslands is written quite similarly to Ghosts of Onyx, continuing the story and expanding to include a great new cast of characters.


    What about Euan Morton’s performance did you like?

    Characters are well defined by the distinct voices he uses for each one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    None stand out as the whole book was great.

    Story
    (440)

    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.
