This follow-up to Halo: The Fall of Reach continues the epic saga of humans facing an alien race known as the Covenant.

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.

    " This is the second book in the series (The Fall Of Reach was the first one) and it is stuffed to the top with action. It and the other books in this series are full of heroes and destruction. The main character is the Master Chief who is a genetically engineered human made only for war with the Covenant (A group of alien alliances). These books are great for reading when you are stuck at home and board out of your mind. Or when you have a strong craving to play the game but can't. "

    " I THINK THAT THIS BOOK IS A SUPERB ADAPTATION OF THE GAME. WORTH READING! "

    " I couldn't even finish this. The first book in the series was amazing but this was just so incredibly boring. I was also bothered by the fact that it was written to follow EXACTLY like the game. I know that sounds kind of stupid but for example there are parts mentioning Master Chief's health bar, the ammo he has left on his HUD, and the zoom on his pistol. I don't need to spend this much time being bored to recap what happens in the game; I'll just play it. "

    " Excellent book. This manages to seemlessly marry the game, game play and game narration into a gripping action packed book. It adds extra story behind the game and the chiefs missions. I enjoyed reading this book and was amazed at how good it was. "
