Review

Rating: 5

Some time after the events of Halo: Cryptum, the story continues with Chakas, now marooned on a Halo that has become damaged by the war being waged. Accompanied by other humans and bearing another personality knows as the Lord of Admirals, he travels across the Halo discovering the nature of the Shaping Sickness AKA The Flood along with the aims of the Didact. Still a little too much deus ex machina, making it more of a narrative history than an actual story with a protagonist attempting to control his fate. There’s also some awkward bits of exposition where the story ties into actual human history – not a smooth fit, though a commendable effort.
