"For fans of the HALO video game franchise, here's just what the doctor ordered. This novel, by game designer and first-time novelist Joseph Staten, takes place before the events in the first Halo game, laying the foundation for the conflict that drives the series. Holter Graham carries most of the narrating duties, firing off military phrases and model numbers like a seasoned veteran. Graham also reads the sections told from the alien point of view, and Jen Taylor performs those told from the point of view of an artificially intelligent being. The story adds background depth to the game, and, judging by the print version's time on the bestseller list, gamers appreciate it. S.D.D. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
