The twenty-sixth century. Humanity has expanded beyond Earth's system to hundreds of planets that colonists now call home. But the United Earth Government and the United Nations Space Command is struggling to control this vast empire. After exhausting all strategies to keep seething colonial insurrections from exploding into a full-blown interplanetary civil war, the UNSC has one last hope. At the Office of Naval Intelligence, Dr. Catherine Halsey has been hard at work on a top-secret program that could bring an end to the conflictand it starts with seventy-five children, among them a six-year-old boy named John. And Halsey could never guess that this child will eventually become the final hope against an even greater peril engulfing the galaxy—the inexorable confrontation with a theocratic military alliance of alien races known as the Covenant.
This is the electrifying origin story of Spartan John-117—the Master Chief—and of his legendary, unstoppable heroism in leading the resistance against humanity's possible extinction.

"In the 26th century, humankind has taken to the stars and is warring against powerful aliens. Humans fight using spaceships, nuclear weapons, and super-soldiers: people who have been transformed by science into stronger, faster, highly adaptable warriors. THE FALL OF REACH follows one soldier as he strives to prevent the destruction of the human race. Todd McLaren narrates with such passion and energy that he brings the sometimes-clichŽd story to life. Growling in the voice of a drill sergeant, whispering in the voice of a worried female scientist, portraying a scrappy child, or smoothly narrating passages of faux-technology, he completely sells the story and makes the listen eager to hear if the humans will survive to fight another day.
