In the mythos of the Halo games, it’s known that the Forerunners built the Halos and that it is because of them that their civilization collapsed. This is the story behind the creation of the Halos from the perspective of a young Forerunner who stumbles into the machinations of the Forerunners known as the Librarian, the Didact and the Master Builder. Though the book drags in a couple of places and the hero isn’t really much in charge of his own fate, the story itself is well-plotted and interesting for fans of the games and related fiction.
