Publisher's Summary

Witness an untold chapter in Halo lore as John Shirley's Halo: Broken Circle takes us to the dawn of the Covenant and the fateful first bargain between the Prophets and the Elites. Broken Circle will explore an Elite splinter group rebelling against the Covenant in its earliest days, a brave Prophet caught in the machinations of the new Covenant leadership, and the root of the betrayal that would ultimately shatter the Covenant during events seen in the blockbuster Xbox video game Halo 2.

    "Scott Brick = Terrible Casting Choice"
    What would have made Halo: Broken Circle better?

    Shifting the focus of the story to a more comprehensive history of the Covenant with less emphasis on the Elites on the Shield World.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Scott Brick could have put more work into giving each character a distinct voice and putting more energy into dramatic scenes. He made each character sound the same and thus made the dialogue hard to follow at many points. He also lacked the ability to give dramatic sequences tension. He basically read the book in one sitting without putting any effort into making the reading engaging to the listener.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The narrator bored me to the point where it was a chore to finish the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Narration is important in audio. When you hire a narrator, he needs to have a large range and the ability to sound like more than one person. If I didn't know who Scott Brick was, I would have thought that this was his first audiobook.

    "Great book!"

    I love the portrayal of good and bad from both sides. I also enjoy the fact that humanity is mentioned only briefly. Great listening.

    "Great"

    The book really took me deeper into the halo covenant side and the narrator did a great job in doing so.

    "Best Halo book since The Fall of Reach"

    This is an absolutely must read for any Halo enthusiast, I loved every moment of this book. It tells an amazing story from the perspective of the Covenant and gives you a true understanding of their culture and how they came to be.
    I'm a big fan of stories that span over a long periods of time. This story does a fantastic job of giving you an understanding of time and the impact it has on civilizations.
    The narrator was absolutely incredible! He does amazing job with the voices of characters. His narration of the Sanshayum and even the Sanghelli could not of been a more perfect and just absorbs you into the story even more.
    I hope he continues to he the narrator on all Halo titles going forward.

    "not bad but could be better"

    The narrator was an amateur but not bad though I was left a little bit unsatisfied but the story of the book was great expertly written and gives us a good insight into sangheili that we never really got befor

    "Excellent story, reading was not to my liking"

    The reader was great, but he seemed to drag words and pauses a little more than I like. This is not a fault to him but my personal opinion. I would recommend to serious halo fans.

    "A bit dis jointed but a good story"

    Could have been better, no mention of arbiter honor from the war before the writ of union. But a good tale anyway.

    "Great read if your are into the halo universe!"

    The Sanghelli are one of my favourite races in the Halo Universe! A good read for their lore. The reader on his is very nice to listen too!
