Halo is one of the most important and continuingly growing universes in modern science fiction. We are taking about a space opera so grand and immersive it couldn’t be contained in just the games. There is much more than just the story and the chief and the Covenant War, you need to know the desperation, the conflict and the human drama of the series through these books.  With 14 published novels, the Halo book series is one of the most prolific.

The first novel in the Halo universe tells us the story developed prior to the events of Halo: Combat Evolved. Later, Halo: Reach would tell the story of one of the worst catastrophes in the Human-Covenant War. This is the novelization of the first Halo game. Join the Chief in the mysterious Installation 04 while he tries to stop an ancient threat. Ever wondered what happened between Halo: CE and Halo 2? Well, you will find the answer in this novel.

In this novel, you'll find yourself in the events that lead up to this conflict. Meet fierce Gray Team and learn the back story of iconic Commander Jacob Keyes, father to Halo 2's Miranda Keyes.
