I was surprised by how different this book is from the other books in the Halo series. It is entirely focused on the Forerunners, and since the Forerunners existed so long before the events in the Halo games there is no Spartans in the plot at all. This initially turned me off because the Spartans are really fun to follow and read about.

During the entire first chapter I was entirely lost. Sometime in the second chapter the book started clicking and I was slowly sucked in from there and ended up enjoying the book. I hate that it's a three book series and I have to wait a couple years for the author to complete it.

On it's own I'm giving this book a solid three stars but I feel like the series as a whole could end up being 4 stars.
