It's simple: if you like the Halo Universe and you want to fill in the dark pieces you should read it.
Funnily enough it work and I actually started to get bored of the silence under our roof!
He loved it and had his head firmly between the pages until he finished it.
Not that I mind too much as I managed to watch the end of my programs without someone chatting away in my ears!
Instead all the one dimensional characters remain, but the writer attempts to add more depth to these characters and to a degree succeeds although certain drastic changes in characters personalities is still odd, Phillips the prime example.
Despite this though the book somehow managed to keep my attention with ease and I was not left disappointed at the end.
I truly hoped that the author would up her game compared to her first Halo book, whilst definitely an improvement it still falls short of achieving a 4 star rating for the following reasons:
* Whilst this book goes a long way towards addressing the major complaint of her previous book, namely her inappropriate character assassinations, it just
does not go far enough and still detracts from the main story line.
* The plot is just too transparent for my liking.
* One item in the book is very out of place in the Halo story (probably more at home in a story about "Crysis 2 or 3")
* Book cover is just awful, seems the publisher has assumed that the majority of the readers are children.
On a positive note this book does have links to the Forerunner trilogy and is beginning to set the back drop to the Halo 4 game.
Personally I think the author is yet to achieve the same status as Eric S. Nylund or Greg Bear with respect to Halo. It would be nice to welcome the author into the fold but it will require further marked improvement. However, true Halo fans will read the book regardless of any review and will form their own impression.
