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