Publisher's Summary

The best-selling adaptation of the iconic video game Halo: Combat Evolved featuring the Master Chief - part of the expanded universe based on the award-winning video game series!

It's 2552. Having barely escaped the final battle for Reach against the vast alien alliance known as the Covenant, the crew of the Pillar of Autumn, including Spartan John-117 - the Master Chief - and his AI companion Cortana, is forced to make a desperate escape into slipspace. But their destination brings them to an ancient mystery and an even greater struggle. In this far-flung corner of the universe floats a magnificently massive, artificial ringworld. The crew’s only hope of survival is to crash-land on its surface and take the battle opposing the Covenant to the ground.

But they soon discover that this enigmatic ringworld is much more than it seems. Built 100,00 years ago by a long-lost civilization known as the Forerunners, this “Halo” is worshiped by the Covenant - a sacred artifact they hope will complete their religious quest for supposed transcendence, and they will stop at nothing to control it. 

Engaging in fierce combat, Master Chief and Cortana will go deep into the Halo construct and uncover its dark secret and true purpose - even as a monstrous and far more vicious enemy than the Covenant emerges to threaten all sentient life on Halo and the galaxy beyond....

Amazing!

I'm a big fan if Halo and Combat Evolved is my second favorite in the video game series (second to Halo 2). it was very interesting experiencing other events that happebed during the events of CE and other character focuses besides Chief. I also reall like Todd McLaren as the narrator. The way he uses different types of voice acting to distinguish between characters is outstanding and I hope he narrates other Halo books as well. I highly recommend Halo: The Flood to anyone else who's a fan of the video games and the series in general.

Good with some quirks

I love this book because it tells the events of Combat Evolved with all of the details in between. My only issue lies with the narrator mispronouncing key-character names like Core-Tan-Uuh. Also I feel there should’ve been some better voice actors to read character dialogue from Sgt. Johnson and Foehammer.

Majority is CE cutscenes via audio

Was enjoyable, liked the parts that weren't covered in the game. Scott Brick is great.

Great Story, Great Delivery, Few Gripes

As a long time Halo fan, the novels are a treat to get through. The only issue I have with the reading is the different pronunciation of certain words.
