|This explosive military science fiction epic, a tie-in to Microsoft's new video game console XBOX, is presented in the tradition of Del Rey's Starfist novels. The human race is pitted against a powerful alien enemy, the Covenant, which is determined to lead humans into a devastating intergalactic war on a distant planet--a planet that is crucial to each side's victory.|
From the Publisher:
Before the Human-Covenant War engulfed Halo, the planet-colony Reach came under attack by the Covenant, and Earth's specially trained and augmented warriors, code-named SPARTANs, stood alone to fight for humanity's survival.

I'm almost half way throught this book and would say this: If you are just looking for a sci-fi book to read, I give this one 4 stars - a good story with a few typos. If you are a fan of the game on Xbox, I give this 5 stars because it really adds to the background and makes you feel for the character you play.
