About this BookThe Human-Covenant War, a desperate struggle for the very survival of humankind itself, has reached its boiling point on a worl called Halo, a mysterious ring world. But the mightiest, fierce alien military force known, the Covenant, are not the only peril lying in wait.
As the fortress world of Reach and its brave defenders were bombarded to rubble, a lone cruiser fled the carnage with the battle's only human survivors: Captain Keyes, his crew of a few hundred Marines, and the Master Chief, the last remaining SPARTAN super-soldier.
With Cortana, the cruiser's artificial intelligence concealed in his battle armor, the Master Chief crash-lands on Halo in the midst of a massive occupation by the Covenant. Curiously, the Covenant soldiers appear to be searching for something hidden on the ring. Halo harbors many deadly secrets, but one overshadows them all on a world built by a race that perished long ago. Now the Master Chief must lead the scattered troops in a brutal race to unravel Halo's darkest mystery and unleash its greatest source of power--that is, before the Covenant beats Master Chief to it...
