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...the desperate, take-no-prisoners struggle that led humanity to Halo-the fall of the planet Reach. Now, brought to life for the first time, here is the full story of that glorious, doomed conflict.While the brutal Covenant juggernaut sweeps inexorably through space, intent on wiping out humankind, only one stronghold remains-the planet Reach. Practically on Earth's doorstep, it is the last military fortress to defy the onslaught. But the personnel here have another, higher priority: to prevent the Covenant from discovering the location of Earth.Outnumbered and outgunned, the soldiers seem to have little chance against the Covenant, but Reach holds a closely guarded secret. It is the training ground for the very first "super soldiers." Code-named SPARTANs, these highly advanced warriors, specially bioengineered and technologically augmented, are the best in the universe-quiet, professional, and deadly.Now, as the ferocious Covenant attack begins, a handful of SPARTANs stand ready to wage ultimate war. They will kill, they will be destroyed, but they will never surrender. And at least one of them-the SPARTAN known as Master Chief-will live to fight another day on a mysterious and ancient, artificial world called Halo.

I borrowed it from a friend. This book is AMAZING. For those of you who love the Halo Universe, this gives great insight on the events before Halo: Combat Evolved. You can even see the transition from John going from eager military super star intent on winning to stoic super soldier rather quickly (at least, that's how I interpreted him to be). Definite must read for Halo fans every where! The games make so much more sense as do a lot of the cut scenes if you go back and play the older games :)

This is the best book ever out of all the other Halo books. The beginning about Johns childhood was just the best. It's really interesting.
