This week I decided to read the prequel to the Halo series: Halo The Fall of Reach. Being a massive Halo fan, I’ve always been interested in the extended halo universe, and I wanted to start from scratch with the books. There’s something about the immense detail and realism that goes into making all the fiction of Halo seem so real, like it really is our future as a species. Anyway, enough of my Geekery, I feel this book is a fantastic way for anyone to expand their knowledge of the Halo Universe, teaching you about how the Spartan II project was conceived and acted out,  as well as going into graphic detail as to how space battles played out. A must read for any fan of halo, but maybe not too great for others. 3/5
