I had originally bought First Strike as a paperback and while I was burning through pages as fast as I could, there were HUGE editing mistakes and problems.

The re-release fixes all that wonderfully. It is one of the "must have" Halo novels by far.

Other than the errors that Eric Nylund always seems to have in his books, it was good. I liked the various storylines, and the careful tie in's. Fast moving, and easy to get into, and finish.

Halo: First Strike is great. It's a continuation of the Halo: Combat Evolved video game story and gives us some kind of "bridge" between Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2. Really great book, you'd surely need to have played the first Halo game to know what happens in the beginning but I would surely recommend it to every gamer out there that loves Halo.

Star Wars. The Forever War. The Golden Age. Starship Troopers. Halo: The Fall of Reach.
What do these have in common? They are among the SF stories (or franchises) that have had the greatest impact on me. And I can say with certainty that Nylund's "Fall of Reach" was at the top of my list. Until Halo: First Strike.
I borrowed FoR from a friend. I read it 6 times before he made me give it back and buy my own copy (a decision I have not regretted yet). I then read it at least a dozen more times. It is the reason I am a Halo fan. It was that good.
When The Flood came out, I was both excited and dismayed- excited because there was more Halo for my insatiable mind to absorb, but disappointed because Nylund was not the author. (I have nothing against Dietz, but he needs to stick to books in universes of his own creation. He's too by-the-book for Halo, especially for a pre-established plot.) I read it and was inevitably disappointed- it was good, but by no means did it live up to FoR's legacy.
I was among the first to find out about the release of First Strike, and I was excited to hear that Nylund was writing it. I was also happy to hear that it would not take place as part of the plot of either game, but as its own unique story, which is part of what made FoR really shine. I had high hopes for this book.
I was not disappointed.
Halo: First Strike surpasses FoR in every conceivable way. The characterization is incredible, the action is mind-blowing, the plot twists stunning. It will answer questions about Halo you have not even thought of. It takes place between Halo and Halo 2, but goes deeper than even I could have imagined. And over it all, there are subtle hints that something bigger is going on.

This is an excellent book. I am a science fiction fan but only read this because my kids had it and they wanted to read it simply because they have the Halo game. This book holds it's own as great science fiction and I recommend it to anyone who likes science fiction, as well as to gamers who want more Halo!

This is a must for Halo fan, and even if your just a casual gamer and played Halo, will find this an amazing Sci Fi twist turning novel. I loved this book and plus it leads into Halo 2. Although I would recommend you play halo or read Fall of Reach before this or else it will seem out of place.

It had all the elements to make up an exciting and believable space opera within the Human-Covenant War storyline and characters. Just as other great sci-fi works, past and present, have done in this same adventurous genre: "Stranger in a Strange Land", "Puppet Masters", "Foundation", "2001", "2010", "Rendezvous with Rama", "Ringworld", all the "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" books, "Advent of the Corps" and others.

ok now I Have read all the halo books including first strike. the fall of reach and the flood are both great books, and so is First strike. it follows the journey of Master Chief on his way back to earth (at the same time setting it up for halo 2). it is very well written and will keep you reading and reading until you either have to stop because it is so late at night, or you have finished the book. it also brings up some interesting plot twists that will be dealt with in halo 2. the action sequences are top-notch, and the surroundings are very detailed when you read the book and you almost feel like you are there. so basically, if you have played halo and have read the other 2 books before this, then this book is a must read, if you dont even know who master chief or cortana is or even what halo is, stay away from this book, because it will confuse you.
