nice if you read most the books of the halo series

most the stories detailed in this book are from other books in the halo series. The stories also give more information about the books which I found very enjoyable since I've read most of them already. If you are not familiar with any of the halo universe this may be a hard book to dive into.

Good if you like a bunch of short stories

I mistakenly picked this up thinking it was a single story that continued for the entirety of the audiobook, upon discovering it was a collection of short stories, I returned it. they are well written though and you might enjoy them.

Another great set of short stories.

Simply amazing book. Scott Brick did a great job narrating all the stories. The only downside was the stories that had cliff hanger endings that left you wanting to hear more. A must have for any fan of the halo universe.

A great book

I highly recomend it. Every story was well written and intresting with the exeption of the last one which while decent enough in its own right really threw out one of the cool mysteries of the halo universe. Spoilers. The last story confirmed that the forerunners became primitives and then died out which I think is a massive waste of oppurtunity.

Spectacular!!

Wow...

Ive heard all the halo books here from audible, i must admit I'm a bit of a fanatic.. Ive gone through the books in chronological order about 10 times from the forerunner trilogy to Halo Last Light. I love the halo universe, and it goes without saying I've been absolutely CRAVING new literature to the point where i started writing my own Halo book. Fractures contains stories that are exciting, emotional, compelling, and rich. I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves halo. The last story is such a treat. ❤️❤️

Great minus a wasted hour

One 60 minute story was literally copy pasted from another halo audio book I listened to recently.

Loved it!!

This was so great but it makes me want all the stories to be full books because they end in massive cliffhangers
