Halo: The Fall of Reach by Eric Nylund
5.0 out of 5 stars From a Halo fan, Jan. 28 2004
If you are a fan of the Xbox game Halo then you should at least read this book.
It is a quite well crafted prequel to the game and finishes at the point the game begins. It tells the back-story of the Master Chief and Captain Keyes and explains their relationship.

The games story is quite interesting but reading this book before playing creates an extremely rich sci-fi universe to run around in and blow up. Great stuff, much better than Halo: The Flood.

This is the kind of book I am never going to stop reading. I'm going to read it over and over again until I commit it all to memory. It's… Read more
