Publisher's Summary

The Human-Covenant War, a desperate struggle for humankind's very survival, has reached its boiling point on the mysterious ring world called Halo. But the fierce Covenant warriors, the mightiest alien military force known, are not the only peril lying in wait.

As the fortress world of Reach and its brave defenders were bombarded to rubble, a single cruiser fled the carnage with the battle's only human survivors: Captain Keyes, his crew of a few hundred marines, and the last remaining SPARTAN super-soldier, the Master Chief.

With the cruiser's artificial intelligence, Cortana, concealed in his battle armor, the Master Chief crash-lands on Halo in the midst of a massive Covenant occupation. Curiously, the alien soldiers appear to be searching for something hidden on the ring.

Built by a long-dead race, Halo harbors many deadly secrets, but one overshadows them all. Now the Master Chief must lead the scattered troops in a brutal race to unravel Halo's darkest mystery---and unleash its greatest source of power.

Listen to more stories of Halo.

    "story of halo 1 and more"

    it has the same story as halo 1, but has a bit more content that allows you to know the pain and sacrifice of the crew from pillar of Autumn. as well as the story behind the failure of an elite tasked with killing the master chief

    "an excellent revisit to a good book"

    as with all my reviews I will try to keep it simple. this book was the second of all the Halo novels I had originally read and I still own the physical copy that I had read years ago. To hear it so well narrated just makes me realize why I love audible so much. some claim it is lazy to listen to a book but I disagree fully due to the fact that I am a very busy person and that Audible and these well written books that I love being narrated on it can help to ease any bad day and I just appreciate it in general 5 out of 5 Stars guys and good job!

    "Well done"

    Very enjoyable listen. Occasionally the narrator's volume was a bit too low to hear without cranking up the volume.

    "would rather play halo ce"

    the story is just a retelling of halo ce, a little more back story on the covinent and keys' squad but nothing special

    "Clear speech and good timing. Some tricky words mispronounced."

    This is definitely an acceptable way to get the story. The Channging voices helps to distinguish each character very well.
    My only concern was the mispronounced word MJOLINAR ( should be pronounced as (mulener) but it's a difficult word to decipher. So , I can't really complain too much h about that. Overall , I really enjoyed listening to this and plan tomahawk with my kids very soon.

    "halo combat evolved the novel"

    it's what the title of my review says, played the game hundreds of times for many of years it's easy to visualize what Is happening and with pretty good detail along with that Is a few story's you never experienced in the game from the thoughts of marines, odsts, captain keys and a of the covenant interactions this is a pretty damn good listen.

    "Good book - but basically a game play through"

    The book is well done, good voices, but the story at times feels exactly like a video game play through. Parts of it is just Master Chief mowing down people and that being narrated. Take it for what it is worth.
