Publisher Comments:

Rounding out Tors series of reissues of the original three Halo novels, this newly edited and revised edition of First Strike is a must-have for all Halo fans. Featuring author Eric Nylund at the helm, this tale bridges the events that take place in the game Halo: Combat Evolved (as novelized in The Flood) and its blockbuster follow-up, Halo 2.

After destroying the first Halo, Master Chief and Cortana attempt to voyage back home among a myriad of deadly Covenant attacks. With a battle weary squad, that includes the last of the Spartan-II survivors and the programs creator, Dr. Catherine Halsey, First Strike delivers an action-packed space opera told against the backdrop of one of the richest and most complex Science Fiction franchises of our time.

Synopsis:

The definitive edition of the novel that bridges the story of Halo®: Combat Evolved and Halo® 2

About the Author

Eric Nylund has written three novels based in the Halo video game universe: Halo: The Fall of Reach, Halo: First Strike, and Halo: Ghosts of Onyx, as well as the epic mythology incarnate series that begins with Mortal Coils and All That Lives Must Die.  He lives near Seattle on a rain-drenched mountain with his wife, Syne Mitchell.
