Publisher Description

The bestselling adaptation of the iconic video game Halo: Combat Evolved featuring the Master Chief—part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series!

2552. Having barely escaped the final battle for Reach against the vast alien alliance known as the Covenant, the crew of the Pillar of Autumn, including Spartan John-117—the Master Chief—and his AI companion Cortana, is forced to make a desperate escape into slipspace. But their destination brings them to an ancient mystery and an even greater struggle. In this far-flung corner of the universe floats a magnificently massive, artificial ringworld. The crew’s only hope of survival is to crash-land on its surface and take the battle opposing the Covenant to the ground.

But they soon discover that this enigmatic ringworld is much more than it seems. Built one hundred thousand years ago by a long-lost civilization known as the Forerunners, this “Halo” is worshipped by the Covenant—a sacred artifact they hope will complete their religious quest for supposed transcendence, and they will stop at nothing to control it. Engaging in fierce combat, Master Chief and Cortana will go deep into the Halo construct and uncover its dark secret and true purpose—even as a monstrous and far more vicious enemy than the Covenant emerges to threaten all sentient life on Halo and the galaxy beyond…

Interesting content

I love the original Bungie Halo games and had heard of this book for such a long time. I’m not sure why it’s called The Flood as it mostly recites the story of the first Halo game. Albeit, in a way that makes the Master Chief a bit more of a character than the game did.

However what I wanted more of was the chapters that didn’t have Chief & Cortana. The ones from the perspectives of the marines and Captain Keyes being slowly infected are fantastic. But the real story for me was the story of the Elite trying to kill Chief. It finally gave the Covenant the voice that Combat Evolved didn’t!

All in all a good book but I expected more extra content and not just a retelling of a story most Halo fans are already familiar with.
