Rounding out Tor's series of reissues of the original three Halo novels, this newly edited and revised edition of First Strike is a must-have for all. Reach fell, and when hope seemed lost, humanity stood face-to-face with the possible extinction of all life in the galaxy and lived to tell the tale.

Ghosts of Onyx Kindle Edition. Silent Storm: Troy Denning. The Human-Covenant war rages on as the alien juggernaut sweeps inexorably toward its final goal: Halo has been destroyed, and the threat it posed to sentient life, neutralized.
But victory has come at a terrible cost for the UNSC. Thousands of valiant soldiers fell in the battle to prevent the alien construct from falling into the enemy? Now, everything depends on the Spartan known as the Master Chief.
Yet even with the aid of the artificial intelligence Cortana, the Master Chief will be hard-pressed to rescue survivors and evade the Covenant ships patrolling the remains of Halo in debris-strewn space.
Ahead lies a dangerous voyage home, through a gauntlet of Covenant forces. For the sake of all, the Master Chief and his war-torn squad must not only survive, but take the fight to the enemy with a decisive first strike. This novel is based on a Mature-rated video game.

Just as a note, I don't play the Halo game so my review is only about the quality of the book.
This story is absolutely full of action, aliens, military combat and of course the superhuman feats of the Spartan II warriors. This is a team of warriors that know no fear and each one can fight like a thousand other soldiers combined. Trained since the age of 6, genetically mutated and enhanced they have become the strongest military force in the galaxy. Put them into their Mjolnir Assault Armor and they are almost virtually invincible. This book cames after the story about The Flood.
Eric Nylund is the best author to write any of the Halo books. His books are by far the best stories and they are just superb Sci-Fi. I won't ruin the plot of the book as to many other reviews have already done that but if you love Halo stories this is one of the books you must read. I liked the book so much I downloadd the Kindle version, then the large paperback version for my library and then the audio CD version to listen to in my car.
I have read or listened to the book 5 times already. If you love super heroes you will love the Master Chief and what he does in this book. Get it, you will love it. I really liked this story and I have read it twice and listened to it twice on Audio and I enjoyed it every time! I feel that this story is one of the best military Sci-Fi books ever written.
Eric Nylund is in my opinion the best author in the Halo saga series of books. The book mostly revolves around the chief and a ragtag band of survivors making their way back to earth aboard a captured covenant ship.
This team of characters are all very interesting, unique, and a joy to experience. The fall of reach jumped around between alot of different characters and was stretched over quite a large time period. First strike focuses on only the few survivors of reach and halo and covers only a small portion of time allowing us those important moments of down time where we get to see these characters interact.
The only real gripe I have with the book is Nylund wastes multiple chapters introducing more spartans only for them to get killed off soon after. Thats only a minor complaint however and honestly its me nitpicking more than anything, which is why this book gets 5 stars from me. Kindle Edition Verified download.
It was incredibly satisfying knowing what happened to Red team on reach, the unanswered question of how Sargeant Johnson got off Halo, and what happened to Master Chief after Halo. I'd love to see this story eventually become a part of the game series. I can't recommend this more for anyone who loves the Halo series or sci-fi in general make sure to read the first two in the series beforehand though. Mass Market Paperback Verified download.
For some, the Halo Series has been at it's best when written by Eric Nylund. While the Flood certainly wasn't bad, combined with the fact that it was written by a different author with a plot that most of us knew, made it a little boring but nonetheless a more indepth version of Halo.
