Description

The Definitive Edition to the First and Bestselling Halo Novel, Including Twenty-seven Pages of New Material
***
Legends are not simply born...they are willed into existence.
Humanity has expanded beyond the Sol System. There are hundreds of planets we now call "home."
The United Nations Space Command now struggles to control this vast empire.
After exhausting all strategies to keep seething insurrections from exploding into interplanetary civil war, the UNSC has one last hope.
At the Office of Naval Intelligence, Dr. Catherine Halsey has been hard at work on a top secret program that could bring an end to all this conflict...and it starts with seventy-five children, among them a six year old boy named John.
Halsey never guessed that this little boy would become humanity's final hope against a vast alien force hell-bent on wiping us out.
This is the story of John, Spartan-117…the Master Chief, and of the battles that brought humanity face to face with its possible extinction.

    This book is great! You should definitely read it as well as the comic book versions! (It's split into 3 comic books.) Although it definitely comes into conflict with the video game (Halo: Reach) cause if Noble Six and Jorge destroyed the Covenant supercarrier then wouldn't the UNSC already know that the Covenant had found Reach? Ah well, still an awesome book!!!

    I started reading this book because a friend suggested it. I've played the games and watched the movies but never have I read the books. When I bought this I was honestly thinking it was gonna be terrible because I absolutely hate reading, but the prologue got me hooked. Within a day I had read 10 chapters. This book is amazing for people who love halo and for those who don't...

    Interesting fact: this book came out before Halo:CE. So if you're worried because it's based off a video game, well, it's not. It's a great book. Fantastic sci-fi with an awesome plot. I consider it a must-read, even if you're not into Halo.

    This is the first Halo novel I have read and I've got to say, it was amazing to read! I normally don't enjoy reading books, but with this one, I did. I have played all of the Halo games, so it was pretty cool to get some more in depth action and even fill in some of the holes in the storyline from the games. I would definitely recommend reading this book.

    This is an awesome book and offers insight into the background of the halo series and explains the origins of the super soldier master chief(john 117) and the rest of the spartans. Also this book was first released in 2001, not 2010. This edition is a reprint. It was supposed to be released concurrently with Halo:CE but ended up being delayed. This is the definitive first book of the Halo novel series.
