Summary

When humanity expanded beyond the safety of Earth to new stars and horizons, they never dreamed what dangers they would encounter there. When the alien juggernaut known as the Covenant declared holy war upon the fragile human empire, millions of lives were lost - but millions of heroes also rose to the challenge.
In such a far-reaching conflict, not many of the stories of these heroes, both human and alien, have a chance to become legend. This collection holds 11 stories that dive into the depths of the vast Halo universe, not only from the perspective of those who fought and died to save humanity, but also those who vowed to wipe humanity out of existence.

lots of great stories (couple of not so good ones)

i actually bought this without realising it was a load of short stories still i can't complain as i thought it was brilliant the stories really helped to expand the halo universe for me and i loved hearing stories from a different part or even side of the conflict there definatly room for many more stories like these. I only had two issues, the first is a issue wrapped as a compliment, some of the stories were so good that i wanted to countinueto hear more as some were left on a bit of a cliff hanger and the second is as there were so many stories there were two that i din't really find that interesting for instance the one with cortana as the main character.
other than that however it is worth a buy i used my 1 credit but i'd say it might be worth the large price tag anyway :)

Modern Day Classic

Until you download this book you might be surprised to find that unlike many other short story books, most of the stories included are each more than an hour in duration and although the story lines could be considered basic, Aliens vs Humans, the content of the story lines are generally well written, quite graphic and detailed. A must for all sci-fi nuts that are looking for uncomplicated but intelligent fiction.

Not actually unabridged

I love short story anthologies and I love Halo. This was great. It also made the listening very bite sized which is nice. My only real disappointment is the audio does not have everything that the book has. The book has some really excellent poems in it that are not included in the audio. Particularly disappointing since it included the short letter at the end which wasn't much longer than the poems that were left out.

Well Written!

Most of the stories in this book were actually really well done. The only reason I gave four stars was because there was one or two stories that were a bit dry in terms of plot but overall a well written book. I thought that there were alot of different types of stories which gave the book a fresh feel every time you read a different story in the book which is why this book is interesting from start to finish.
