"This book is one of a key answering book in Halo Series"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This book shows you how the SPARTAN-II and MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor project began and the characteristic of the Master Chief and Cortana and other characters. It also reveals some of the Cole Protocole's purpose and what happened in battle between and during Human-Covenant War in other outer human's colonies. Reading this book you will also notice that there're few chapters about what happened in the Battle of Planet Reach (or Halo: Reach), this is one fascinating book for Halo fan, if you are a curious gamer who has many questions you want answered, I bet this will be the most suitable book for you to read.

"inspiring book of hope"
5 stars"

This book practically answers all your questions about master chiefs background . This book includes action and emotion in a great explanation about how the human-covenant war began and how the spartan project worked. This book has a perfiect reasonable length so it should give you hours of ultimate reading satisfaction You can defiantly not call yourself a halo fan until you know everything in this book.


As the bloody Human-Covenant War rages on Halo, the fate of humankind may rest with one warrior, the lone SPARTAN survivor of another legendary battle. This was the desperate, take-no-prisoners struggle that led humanity to Halo - the fall of the planet Reach. Now, for the first time, here is the full story of that glorious, doomed conflict ...Almost on Earth's doorstep, Reach is the last military fortress to defy the brutal Covenant onslaught. But their highest priority is to prevent the Covenant from discovering Earth. The outnumbered soldiers seem to have little chance, but Reach is the secret training ground for the very first 'super soldiers'. Code-named SPARTANs, these bioengineered and technologically augmented warriors are the best - quiet, professional and deadly. As the ferocious Covenant attack begins, a handful of SPARTANs stand ready to wage ultimate war. And at least one of them - the SPARTAN 'Master Chief' - will live to fight another day on a mysterious and ancient artificial world called Halo ...
