Review

Rating: 6

A collection of short stories in the HALO universe, covering the time period of all the different games and places, whether it be Colonial recruit prior to the coming of the Covenant, an interlude with Master Chief in New Mombasa, or Cortana facing off against the Gravemind. There’s plenty of variety and, other than what I found to be some odd word choices in some of the stories, the stories are worth a read for anyone who’s a fan of the games. Unfortunately, if you’re not conversant with the games and some of the backstory, a few of the stories don’t stand alone so well and are more in the nature of interludes or vignettes rather than complete stories unto themselves. Even then, the remainder of the book still has some strong entries (and not to say the other pieces aren’t good, but the require some background knowledge while simultaneously providing more detail and flavor).
